I normally try not to link to “Morning Joe,” but this morning’s segments with Khizr and Ghazala Khan is a must-watch. In short, the Khans represent everything Donald Trump is not: compassionate, intelligent, patriotic, courageous Americans with enormous integrity and dignity. I’m glad to hear that the Khans have overwhelmingly received love and support, other than from the sociopathic, deranged Republican 2016 presidential nominee. Khizr Khan makes a great point: “good Republicans” can’t stay silent anymore and must directly rebuke Trump. Khizr Khan adds that the “world watches the United States,” and that “it is our moral duty [to speak out publicly about]…the burden of voting for a divider, voting for an excluder, will put such a burden on our souls for the remainder of our lives, that we will not be able to bear it.”

    VFW nails Trump:

    VFW SUPPORTS GOLD STAR FAMILIES

    TO RIDICULE A GOLD STAR MOTHER IS OUT-OF-BOUNDS

    August 01, 2016

    WASHINGTON — Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has a history of lashing out after being attacked, but to ridicule a Gold Star Mother is out-of-bounds, said the new national commander of the near 1.7 million-member Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and its Auxiliary.

    “Election year or not, the VFW will not tolerate anyone berating a Gold Star family member for exercising his or her right of speech or expression,” said Brian Duffy, of Louisville, Ky., who was elected July 27 to lead the nation’s oldest and largest major war veterans organization.

    “There are certain sacrosanct subjects that no amount of wordsmithing can repair once crossed,” he said. “Giving one’s life to nation is the greatest sacrifice, followed closely by all Gold Star families, who have a right to make their voices heard.”
