The following note is being shared with colleagues at UIC:
Certain outrageous and criminal public statements require public condemnation. Donald Trump’s remark, “You have to go after their families,” referring to the families of terrorists, calls for our country to commit war crimes. Yes, DT walked the remark back, but that he would make such an intemperate and ignorant remark groups him with the most infamous and dangerous demagogues in history.
One interesting development this past week of 3/7/16 is that a number of leading and more traditional Catholic intellectuals, mostly allied with the GOP, issued a condemnation of Trump, stating “Donald Trump is manifestly unfit to be president of the United States.” While UIC colleagues may not agree with a number of the premises in the statement, addressed to men and women of good will, I share it for your interest:
