Perspective: Trump Indicted for Attempting to Overturn Results of 2020 Election: A Time for Truth, Not Delusion; For Struggle, Not Complacency
From the Refuse Fascism Editorial Board
On August 1, the Department of Justice indicted Trump on four counts of (and related to) conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 election. On January 6, 2021 Trump unleashed thousands of his blood-thirsty murderous fascist supporters to violently storm the Capitol attempting to hunt down and hang Mike Pence,…

Regarding his theft of federal government documents and his obstruction of federal efforts to get them back, Donald Trump’s book title would be I Did It. He has openly admitted his crimes on FOX News and CNN, essentially daring the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and its special prosecutor Jack Smith to hold him accountable to the rule of law. It’s clear as day…
Speech by Coco Das, Austin TX, 4/8/23
On Easter weekend, a federal judge in Amarillo Texas, Matthew Kaczmaryk revoked FDA approval of the abortion pill mifepristone… It is time to get fucking serious. It’s time to stop playing around. We need to call this what it is, a fascist move to further enslave and degrade women, and we need to fight and call on others to fight politically and ideologically through non-violent struggle. Our power is in the streets and we need to start using it…

By Paul Street
It’s easy to dismiss the fascist menace stalking the United States by focusing on the outrageous wackiness and buffoonery of national-level Republi-fascist politicos… Don’t do it. Bear in mind that Adolph Hitler was widely dismissed as a bloviating clown as he rose to power and marched humanity towards a global war that killed at least 50 million people.

Presentation from Andy Zee at the panel discussion “Why did 74 million people vote for Trump? What is the danger and what do we do about it?”
Trump has cohered diverse reactionary and fascist movements that predated his regime into a force that has now tasted power, is embedded in key institutions especially the courts, and that lives and seethes in its own conspiracy laden universe of victimization that will propel an aggreived revanchism. This is a movement that is not going away. – READ ANDY ZEE’S PRESENTATION

What is Refuse Fascism?
RefuseFascism.org was initiated on an emergency basis in the wake of the election of Trump and Pence in 2016. Our founding mission called on all who recognized the catastrophic danger of the Trump/Pence regime to unite and organize to drive the regime out of power through sustained, non-violent mass protest. We pledged to the world that we would not stand aside while there was still a chance to stop a regime that imperiled humanity and the earth itself. With our slogan: In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America! And our single unifying demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
This Pledge to the People of the World, initiated by Refuse Fascism, appeared in the New York Times on November 9, 2020
