“I’m voting for Trump because he is the lesser of two evils”

“I’m voting for Trump because he is the lesser of two evils” December 8, 2016

If you ever said this, then do be aware that you incurred a moral obligation to confront him when he says and does evil. If you don’t, then you were, in fact, voting for him because you support the evil he says and does and were lying about the whole lesser of two evils thing.

If you followed that up by telling anybody who did not vote for Trump or who voted for Hillary in order to stop Trump that they “have blood on their hands” and would be responsible for everything she did, even if they made clear they opposed the evil she intended, your responsibility to vocally oppose Trump when he does evil is absolute and your silence always implies consent. Always. For the measure you use will be measured to you.
