This Nightmare Must End:
The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
In the Name of Humanity,
We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America
Trump threatens the PEOPLE of Iran… and the world… with horrors “WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED.”
The Trump/Pence Regime:
Indicted for Crimes Against People of the World
Sign the pledge… join with Refuse Fascism to drive out this regime in the interests of humanity!
What the world saw this week with Trump at the NATO meeting and then at the press conference following his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin was the shredding of the alliances, political protocols, and norms that the U.S. first put together after, and has used for decades since, World War II to strengthen and enforce the U.S.’s dominant position in the world. What we witnessed from Trump was the Trump/Pence regime’s America First fascist program being further bludgeoned into place – working to rip up what has been a multi-lateral approach (NATO, UN, etc.) of asserting U.S. world dominance couched in lofty terms of cooperation, spreading democracy, etc., and moving to replace this with a zero sum game of the open assertion of the gangster logic of raw power. Trump’s aggressive assertion of “compete and conquer” and “win or lose” global relations is a high stakes situational dog-eat-dog arrangement that heightens the danger of even greater wars than those already going on, like in Yemen for one example….
…The Trump/Pence regime must be opposed not by trying to be more “America First” and jingoistic than Trump himself, but by standing with all of humanity against the fascism he and his regime are imposing.
The outrages of the last week – the incredible onslaught of fascist policy and word – should impel everyone outraged to find the ways to work together, to unite, behind the demand: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
by Perry Hoberman reprinted from Counterpunch
…From the very beginning, we’ve been told to take Trump’s words “seriously but not literally”, that he’s just “communicating with his base”, and that he’ll be reined in by the “adults in the room”, or maybe by our (increasingly mythical) “checks and balances”. These lines of reasoning start from the premise that Trump is just another corrupt far-right politician, deploying exaggerated rhetoric merely to get attention, while in fact staying within the boundaries of agreed-upon norms of civilized behavior. If we’ve learning anything in the last year and a half, it’s that this regime has no shame, no scruples, and no limits…
… Politicians will only do the right thing if they are forced to do the right thing. While we do have to acknowledge that nothing so far has been even close to what it will take, there is deep potential – but if and only if it is transformed and infused with a sober and honest understanding of the depth of what we are actually confronting and a real path to drive it out.
This is what Refuse Fascism is for. We have raised the single unifying demand that The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! I urge you to join us, to read our call, to talk to your friends, families and colleagues, to be one of thousands now, leading to tens and hundreds of thousands, and finally millions, taking to the streets and staying there until our demand is met: In the Name of Humanity, This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
A Promise I Made 50 Years Ago: Never Again
By Scott Gilbert
I made a promise 50 years ago. Never again. Never again will we let what happened in Nazi Germany happen again. This promise was to my mother and grandparents, survivors of the Holocaust. This promise was to myself. This promise was to the people of the world… I am a sustainer of RefuseFascism.org through making a monthly donation and will continue to do so until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

Read and sign the Refuse Fascism Call to Action – the vision, the plan and the pledge to drive out this regime:
…Trump’s “Make America Great Again” is a 21st century fascist program of Manifest Destiny – “America First” – wrapped in the flag and Mike Pence’s Bible taken literally, with a program of white supremacy, misogyny, and xenophobia.
…WE PLEDGE that we will not stand aside while there is still a chance to stop a regime that imperils humanity and the earth itself. Join us. Let’s stand together with conviction and courage, overcoming fear and uncertainty, to struggle with all we’ve got to demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go.
Acting with Courage

There is no electoral road to stopping Trump from locking in a fully fascist Supreme Court with Brett Kavanaugh. People must step outside normal political channels and refuse to accept a fascist America!

In a piece in The Independant titled “I’m nearly 100 years old, I saw the 1945 refugee crisis firsthand – and I need people to listen to my warning,” Harry Leslie Smith writes:
“As the northern hemisphere wends its way into summer, my sense of calm has been broken by the anguished cries of refugees the world over who have been denied their human right to a life free of war or poverty. Maybe it’s my advanced age and knowing that I will be dead soon that makes me angry and resolved not to remain quiet…” – more here.
@SunsaraTaylor speaks at #PenceProtest in Philly against childhood separation and the whole Trump/Pence regime. ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN STOP THIS NIGHTMARE, join us, partner with us, connect — we have to work together to drive out this fascist regime, in the name of humanity
Hundreds protest at La Guardia Airport, NYC
Wed night, June 20 – Hundreds respond in the middle of the night to protest incoming flights carrying children taken from their parents at the border in Texas and flown to a detention center in NYC where hundreds are being held. ACLU, Make the Road, United We Dream, Linda Sarsour, Molly Crabapple and others were there.
Can someone please DM who knows of an organized movement to revolt against this latest trump abomination at the border? We need to stop everything and march until this Trump policy ends. We are going to end up like Germany in WWII. We have to all stand up and do something.
Yes! This IS our mission! And we want to work together with everyone to make it real.

Somebody wrote on twitter: What will it take for this lying , evil, horrible horrible man be removed from office? John Cusack retweeted them with this reply:
People in streets – Uniting – shutting down steady stream of profits corporate America expects – making it impossible for congress not to act – if even to save itself – babies stolen from parents seeking asylum -deported and sent back – kidnapping children – that enough?

THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In The Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America: A Better World IS Possible!
New & Critical…
by Coco Das
… To all those who are sitting back, still waiting for Trump’s imminent defeat at the hands of a blue wave, the Mueller investigation, nonexistent checks and balances, or a Democratic Socialist congressional candidate, watch this speech and tell me Trump is not utterly, arrogantly, and confidently triumphant.
…Millions of lives are at stake. Children’s lives. Not just in this country, around the world. We have to stop celebrating flimsy victories and start working for a real victory, the end of this fascist regime.
