A short list of republican traitors

Influential right-wing industrialists and financers such as Irenee
du Pont, Prescott Bushand the virulently anti-semitic Henry Ford not only fought publicly to keep America from joining the war against Germany, they actually helped finance Hitler's war machine..

The conservative press--led by Henry Luce (who applauded
Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia)--worked to influence public opinion in favor of isolationism.

American hero and right-winger Charles Lindbergh admired the
"virility" and "dictatorial direction" of Nazi Germany so much so that he used his substantial influence as a vocal Nazi propagandist.

The Senate--led by Republican Gerald P. Nye--was determined to
remain isolated from the European conflict. Nye and his colleagues
spearheaded the Neutrality Act of 1935.

William Dudley Pelley mobilized like-minded right-wing
conservatives into a pro-Nazi legion he called the Silver Shirts and which others referred to as the "Christian American Patriots". By July 1938, he had mailed out 3.5 tons of pro-Nazi, anti-semitic propaganda. After the U.S. joined the war, Pelley was jailed for sedition.

The godfather of right-wing hate radio and media wackos, Father Charles Coughlin used his radio show and magazine to stir-up anti-semitic, pro-Nazi sentiment in the U.S.

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

That's you. You take the mirror of God's word and hold it at an angle so you can see everyone but yourself.
You are very foolish.
