A visceral negative reaction to Trump endorsers

Red States:

Amanda Carpenter has a brave and important post today at Conservative Review. She has compiled a list of every Republican elected official and every prominent conservative pundit who has endorsed Donald Trump before he officially clinched the nomination. Her argument is pretty simple:

It’s time to make a list.

A list of those so-called conservatives and Republicans endorsing Donald Trump, the megalomaniac who regularly threatens his opponents and the press, raves about making members of our military adopt ISIS-like tactics, has funded Obamacare and Gang of Eight Democrats, promises to forcibly relocate American companies to his liking, and has demonstrated again and again he intends to govern as a tyrannical King rather than a President.

Call it a boycott, call it a blackball, call it blacklist, call it whatever you want. I’m done with these folks and other conservatives should be, too. Anyone who will defend a man condoning random acts of violence at his rallies has lost their morals; they will defend anything at all.

So, I’d like to remember who supported Trump so I never give any kind of credence to their judgment. “Never Trump” means never those who support him as well.
...
I have noticed that this has already begun to happen to those alleged conservatives who have endorsed Trump.  It is also playing out against some in the conservative media who have given Trump so much free run with his demagoguery.

It has certainly lessened my regard for their judgment.
