Updated: Activism: Speak Up. Speak Up, Now.

 

Everyone has heard of the public shaming, and shunning of Trump cabinet members.
One unnamed intern even went so far as to call our in the capital these words of wisdom and respectful warning – “Mr. President, fuck you.”

And the response from the quislings is to advise us to shut up, be polite and don’t rock the boat.

Why not tell us to go shopping?

Our parents and grandparents, and some of our great-grandparents fought these battles once before. Many of them did not survive, but our country and our lives are built upon the fruits of their victory.

They walked boldly into hell for us. We must remember that superhuman effort, remember their sacrifices and work to prevent the need for such from recurring in our lifetimes, or the lifetimes of our children.

We can do so easily, simply by speaking out. Which is our right and our responsibility.

A call to action:

Don’t wait for November. Speak now. Speak truthfully. Speak loudly and without fear about what you know is right before it is too late for words to have an effect.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
June 6, 1944

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

 

O-

Who knew there would be an update? Can I see a show of hands please?

‘Be Careful What You Wish For Max!’: Trump Threatens Rep. Waters

I think Donald “Tiny Hands” Trump is sitting at attention when we speak, don’t you?

    I saw a comment on another blog in which the writer said something like, “If you ever wondered what you would do if you were a German citizen in 1932, now’s your chance to find out.

    I think this is basically right. The GOP has proved to be utterly spineless standing up to Trump. No condemnations even when he advocates abolishing due process at the border!” It’s up to us to take protests to the streets if the system fails us. Future of our democracy is at stake, and all that, for real. This man is a fascist, and no one in Congress with real power to curb his has the courage, or desire to do so. The Repubs really are a fascist party themselves.

      Standing up to him? Hell, he’s advanced their agenda by at least a decade.

      They’ll probably give him a medal if he installs a sign that reads “Trabajar te hará libre” over the gate of the concentration camp.

    That bit about low IQ is straight out of Charles Murray’s racist handbook.

    The Republicans always speak from their platform of higher moral ground, no matter how low they actually are. It’s one of their mainstays. They can, lead by Trump, kill medicaid, kill immigrants, kill black teenagers, kill the poor, kill voting rights, kill women…all because it is part of their vision of morality. It’s upside-down.

    Of course we need to motivate, enable, and boost voters in November. But I agree that civil discourse no longer applies. When I see two American voter wearing shirts that say, “Fuck your feelings”, I believe it’s game time. We have to run the tables, we have to speak out, speak up, stand up, and let the Grand Old Party of white people that we’re on the side of goodness, fairness, honesty, and strength. No more nice “reaching across the aisle” because when we do that, we get slapped.

    I’m not advocating violence or ugliness, but rather assertion in our rights. We do have the right to speak, and we have to.

    The media sure sat up and paid attention to the so-called Tea Party’s incivility without ever calling them out for it. Quite the opposite, all the screaming outrage against a black Democratic president for being black and advancing the Democratic agenda that a FUCKING MAJORITY of the electorate voted for was given wall-to-wall coverage and deemed something legitimate, serious, and imperative. This, despite the obvious astroturfing, the muddled, nonsensical and confused messages and the lack of any real issue or event to cause such outrage. And the bothsiderism that the media ALWAYS falls back to is just another heads-I-win-tails-you-lose game favoring the Republicans no matter what abysmal depths they are currently stooping to.
