Eric Erickson is generally considered a voice for the right-wing fringe in conservative and GOP politics by the site. That aside Eric deserves kudos and respect for his disinviting Donald Trump to his Red State Gathering. His reasons for doing so are sound and based on common decency.

Red State - I have tried to give a great deal of latitude to Donald Trump in his run for the Presidency.
He is not a professional politician and is known for being a blunt talker. He connects with so much of the anger in the Republican base and is not afraid to be outspoken on a lot of issues. But there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross.
Decency is one of those lines.
As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.
In a CNN interview, Mr. Trump said of Megyn Kelly, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”
It was not the “blood coming out of her eyes” part that was the problem.
In those few short words Eric defined The Donald's character flaw. He is most certainly a misogynist and based on his previous comments about Mexicans a bigot and racist as well. There should be no place in the GOP (or any party) for a businessman/politician of Trump's character. He is simply a despicable and dishonest human being.
