Trump Watch November 8 2017

Day 284:

FUCK YEA!

As Chris Hedges says below:

Revolt is a political necessity, it is a moral imperative, we must not be complicit. We must live in truth.

The moment we defy power, in any form, we are victorious! The moment we stand with the oppressed, and accept being treated like the oppressed, we are victorious!  The moment we hold up a flickering light in the darkness for others to see, we are victorious! The moment we thwart the building of a pipeline of a fracking sight we are victorious! The moment keep a mother faced with deportation with her children we are victorious!  The moment we mass in the streets to defy police violence, we are victorious!

We must turn the tide of fear, we must, by taking the streets, make the ruling elites frightened of us!

To sit idle, to refuse to defy these forces, to by our silence be complicit, will atrophy and wither our souls. It will leave us husks of human beings.

This not only a fight for life, it is a fight that gives life! It is the supreme expression of faith, it is the belief that no matter how great the power of evil, the power of love is greater.

I do not in the end fight fascists, because I will win, I fight fascists because they are fascists.

We got these assholes on the run now! Progressives have won across the entire country! Your vote counts, and has been counted. This is the first drizzle of snow that will end up being a landslide. Don’t give up though, now that our political adversaries have seen the first inkling of what is coming they will only fight harder.

They have the money, but we have the numbers. We can not lose if we don’t give up.
