These Trump rallies feed red meat to fascist mobs. These mobs get whipped up to intimidate, threaten and even murder the opposition. It is at these rallies that Trump said, “he longed for the days when he could punch a protesters in the face” and launches attacks on the press, against Muslims, refugees and immigrants. Do not let this go unanswered. Be there!
Let’s make sure that when he speaks, working to further rally “his people” behind the regime’s white supremiscist, fascist, message of hate – he doesn’t go unopposed.
Stand up and say NO! to the fascist program of Trump and Pence
Join us to say NO! In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!
The Trump/Pence regime has begun subverting the separation of powers, the separation of Church and State, called for a new nuclear arms race, demonized the press, dismissed the very concept of truth substituting their own fabricated “alternative facts.” It can already be said of Trump/Pence that “first they came for” the Muslims, then the Mexicans, then all refugees, then women, then Black and Latino people, LGBTQ persons, the environment, and anyone who doesn’t conform or submit to their vision and plan for a nation cohered around white supremacy and a political form of Christian fundamentalism, that should rightly be called Christian Fascism.
Fascism is not just a gross combination of horrific reactionary policies. It is a qualitative change in how society is governed. Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive “traditional values.” In Trump’s election campaign he encouraged and fed on the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power. In his inaugural address he pledged allegiance only to this movement. What is crucial to understand is that once in power fascism essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights.
Even as the Trump/Pence Regime is moving fast, they have not yet fully consolidated their regime, or, as yet, been able to implement their full program. But, this is their objective and it is very possible. It might only take a single serious crisis – international or domestic — for this regime to drop the hammer. We do not have much time.
