GOP Senator: My brother didnt die fighting Hitler so Nazis could go unchallenged here.

'This Saturday, GOP Senator Orin Hatch spoke out against the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, saying that it’s a slap in the face to veterans who died in World War II fighting the Nazis, one of whom was his brother.

“We should call evil by its name,” Hatch tweeted, making sure to note that the tweet was composed by him and not his staff. “My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home.”'

4. Exactly. Denouncing is not enough.

I don't want to hear Republican complaints, I want them to take ACTION against these Nazis and their enabler-in-chief.

14. Well, denouncing it is more than most of the Republicans in Congress has done. I appreciate Hatch's

statement. It's not enough, but it's better than the nothing coming from most of them.

and help save this country.

Step up Hatch.. Step up and stop this nightmare.

7. i'm glad some republicans are making these statements

but they need to get rid of Trump. they have the numbers. how fucking bad does it have to get?!

dumb question. they are holding out for their fucking tax breaks, ransacking the government, and won't turn until it is clear that they will lose if they stand by this president. depraved motherfuckers.

8. Forest for the Trees

I still can't believe that the GOP would keep Trump around to get their true agenda when he isn't capable of delivering on said agenda. He always gets in the way and can't be quiet when he should be, or loud when it warrants.

I haven't heard any never-Trumpers state that making Pence president would allow the GOP to march in near lockstep over what they are doing now.

All I can say now is they must be waiting for a war to remove him. By then, it's too late.

13. not that I want to help them...

but it seems to me that they aren't getting their agenda passed, short of the SC nomination and won't as long as he is in power. That would require rational thinking, and the last set of Republicans that did that sort of thing was Dwight Eisenhower, and that was before my place in this world. There was a big reason why the Eisenhower clan were huge supporters of President Obama.

16. Bingo: "destroy their chances for reelection"

You are so right, barbtries.

When the narcissist's polls are low enough that they believe he'll drag them down in their states and districts, then and only then WILL THEY IMPEACH HIM. All they care about is keeping their jobs.

Words move opinions which move polls which move the "pols" up for re-election. Again, all they care about is fooling enough their constituents to keep their jobs. Period. And they need Koch Bros money to fight off all comers.

Rs do not care about this country.

9. My dad might have said the same thing, even if he did live through the war.

Even so, if the Republicans continue to refuse to understand that these lowlifes are THEIR children, then there will be no abatement.

11. Hatch is full of shit.

As long as his ignorant party of ass kissers keeps backing the leader of the repub party his brother did die in vain fighting Nazis. The white house is full of Nazi assholes. Orin, your whole party is responsible for this shit. You have sat around with your thumb up your ass and keeping your mouth shut about all of adolf trump's insane crap. This is what happens. adolf will call your brothers death fake news unless he needs your vote for something. Count on it!

18. If you mean it, Orrin, get your party to abandon its bigotry.

Do something about discrimination, bigotry, and your party's dependence on suppressing the votes of minorities.

Yeah, that'll happen. Without your bigoted base you'd be nowhere.
