Trump Will Come For You, Too
"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." ~ Desmond Tutu
Half of my family is Jewish.
My sister-in-law and my nephews are Korean.
My oldest friend in NYC is a Black woman.
The oldest mutual friend my wife and have is an LGBTQ woman.
The Dad Pack I pal around with includes Chinese, Muslim, and Peruvian guys.
And I am an immigrant.
Trump attacks us all.
But even if he weren't targeting us specifically, his obvious and insidious evil makes him like unto a comic book villain, and he surrounds himself with even more creeps and monsters and puts them into power.
It is a veritable cadre of cartoonish corruption and criminality, so blindingly obvious in its immorality that you must work hard to avoid noticing it.
Immoral organizations demand opposition from *any* moral person.
Whether or not this administrations's attacks are directly affecting you, you would be a fool to think that they won't for long.
First they came for the Muslims.
Then they came for the Hispanics.
Then they came for the transgenders.
Then they came for Women's Rights.
Did you do nothing?
Do you *really* think they won't come for you, too?
History says otherwise. Again and again.
We have Nazis, actual Nazis marching in the streets.
We have Concentration Camps. Oh, sorry, "detention centers."
We have 90 indictments in two years.
We have an agent of a hostile foreign power in the White House.
Trump is making an un-Constitutional power grab, and Republicans are going along with all of it. He's referred to himself as a "King." Republicans are silent about it.
American history is at a crossroads, right now, this very moment. History will remember those who were complicit in this atrocious time period and those who were not.
Or, to put it as bluntly as possible:
Ever wondered what you would have done to stop the rise of the Third Reich?
Because you're doing it right now.
