And then intelligent people have to explain all of this to the stupid, in order to counterbalance the manipulative efforts of the straight-up liars that pretend that they don't know this, and lie about things like this in order to make Trump look crazy.

Ummmm, he did.

You don't think his team ran this by him before they launched the campaign?

Anyways, like Obama needed the pledge with his supporters hands over their hearts - these are same people that were chanting and fainting.

Cult.

Did anyone see this or think it was a little bizarre?

Donald Trump asks backers to swear their support, vows to broaden torture laws - CNNPolitics.com
12th? Unless that is a typo, I guess he doesn't actually want those who vote on primary day, which is the 15th.

Yes, it is bizarre. But, that is a day in the life when it comes to trump.

Of course, those who do pledge are free to change, just as trump says he is constantly changing. Can't expect more from them than from their leader, right?

Well Obama and Trump both had loyalty pledges...at least Hillary didn't have such a pledge ever...

This is the same guy whose supporters made a big deal out of the "black power fist" allegedly raised by protesters, right?

There are fair comparisons to Trump and Hitler in the way they ran for power and used manipulative tactics to gain that power.
Manipulative in the sense of lying to people and pretending not to know something, or manipulative in the sense of truly being dumb and seeking to forge connections with people who are also stupid.

Or do you mean manipulative tactics like siccing the IRS on conservative groups? Covering up the terrorist massacre at Ben-Ghazi? Giving hard-won territory in Iraq and Afghanistan back to the terrorists? Drawing a "red line" in the sand in the middle-east and then taking it back one week later? Having a private server so that email communications between the US Secretary of State and the terrorists, and the Chinese government, and the North Korean government cannot be monitored by the NSA, or FBI? Please explain to us all how Donald Trump's candidacy is certainly destined to result in millions of jews, gypsies, slavs, homosexuals, political dissidents and anyone else that stood in the way of the SOCIALISTS party in Germany, while the real socialists, with NSA surveillance infrastructure and a near-majority on the Supreme Court (which writes new law into old legislation), somehow none of that is worth talking about.

Is it.

No, TRUMP is the problem. Not the political establishment in both parties that have created this mess, this 21 TRILLION dollars in debt. Let's not worry about any of THAT. Instead, lets take a real horrific tragedy, one that the OP probably doesn't even understand, and use that for our (the OP's) superficial and barely understood political objective, which is probably some drivel about "ending racism" and "promoting social justice" and "working towards world peace" and other drivel and claptrap.

There's a reason why internet culture places special awareness on the idea of "Hitlering" a thread. It's because the people that USE the holocaust do so for whatever reason their feeble intellect can imagine and at great disrespect to the actual holocaust, it's victims and those that survived it.

No, it was an official pledge to Obama from Obama's official campaign.

Alba was just one of the most recognized sheep to participate in it.

The point is, Trump, Hillary, and Obama have all engaged in such activities...and I am sure other politicians. It is ridiculous, but it is more pathetic to compare it to Nazism.

P.S. I do not support any of the 3.

Ok, you win--they are all Nazis. But this is a confusing thread. Did Trump ask people to pledge an oath to his big penis?
