Mark Morford at SFGate has a remarkable post up that you should read, This Way To The Resistance.
These are the groups. These are the resources, the publications, the articles, the essential tools, the warriors both veteran and upstart, each and every one dedicated to fighting the Trumpocalypse and advocating for human rights, civil liberties, the safety and dignity of immigrants, minorities and refugees, of the LGBT community, of women’s health, science, the arts, sanctuary, your own tremulous and terrified heart. Also hope, kindness and just the type of fundamental human decency that was spit upon and stomped to the ground on November 8th.
And let’s be absolutely clear: This is the time. It is, tragically and rather gruesomely, unlike any time in recent U.S. history, as the world bears sickened witness to America’s sudden lurch toward tyranny, toward a flatulent fascism like we’ve never really known, a complete upheaval and molestation of America’s truest values.
…and he goes on to list resources and people (famous, infamous, and obscure —including reasonably priced bourbon!) with his usual stylized writing (that you either love or hate). It’s a great post. Bookmark the resources you think might be valuable.
But here is the larger point I hope to make: we are not alone. When you read his post you’ll see that a huge swath of America is rising up to say Not In My Country, Asshole! This is not some sprinkling of coastal elites who are resisting, Trump is creating the environment where people all across America are resisting his fascist agenda. Have some cheer. Hug your friends and families, and help the people who are frightened (that’s pretty much all of us).
And punch a Nazi. It is what Indiana Jones —and Wonder Woman— would do.
