Raise Your Hand If You're Sure

Some may remember a commercial slogan for a deodorant which advised watchers to "Raise your hand if you're sure."  Whether or not the Trump campaign needs to be deodorized, the slogan and the sight of thousands of people raising their hands in solemn salute swearing to vote for Trump has raised concerns among anti-defamation advocates, media figures and others.

The idea that Trump's message is reminiscent of Hitler's Germany is obviously resonating with more people.  So much can be said about all this.

This is the kind of media concern we should have seen months ago.  It is not too late to stop Trump, but we must be very intentional and persistent now.
