The sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey has shocked the country and the world. Editorials in major papers and magazines, commentators on TV, and prominent political figures are calling this a constitutional crisis. The NY Daily News headline on its front page shouted: “Coup de Trump.” Rolling Stone wrote: “the creeping sense of terror you’re feeling in the wake of the president firing James Comey is entirely appropriate.” This is, as Refuse Fascism wrote, “an ominous and dangerous escalation of the Trump/Pence Regimes moves to consolidate fascism.”
Will this be a pivotal moment in which we do act with determination to do all we can to move people – who are right now alarmed and outraged – to take to the streets to demand that this regime be driven from power? Will Trump’s despotic firing of the person charged with investigating whether or not his election campaign committed a crime or an impeachable offense – a firing that is a stark rejection of the rule of law–be a crack in the wall through which the outrage of masses of people pours forth?
