Teach-in: Why the Trump/Pence Regime Is Fascist and Why It Must Be Driven Out
“The Trump/Pence Regime is a Fascist Regime. Not insult or exaggeration, this is what it is….Donald Trump and Mike Pence have assembled a vicious cabal that has put forth positions and begun initiatives which demonstrate that they fully intend to shred political and social norms with catastrophic consequence. Because Trump has his finger on the nuclear trigger, the Trump/Pence regime is more dangerous to the world than even Hitler…” (from the RefuseFascism Call to Action)
Is this true?
What is Fascism?
How is the Trump/Pence Regime moving to institute a fascist form of rule?
What will this look like and how fast could it happen? Is there a way to stop it?
What does this mean for what each of us, and all of us together, must do?
Andy Zee of the Refuse Fascism Advisory Board will dig into these questions. His talk will go deeply into the Refuse Fascism Call to Action followed by a Q&A.
From the RefuseFascism Call:
“Millions of people, outraged by this regime, took to the streets delivering a stinging rebuke to Trump the day after the inauguration. Protest and resistance continues against the many attacks on the people by Trump/Pence administration. This must grow broader, deeper, and more determined. This resistance is righteous and necessary, but it is not sufficient. We must recognize that the character of fascism is that it can absorb separate acts of resistance while continually throwing the opposition off balance by rapidly moving its agenda forward. The Trump/Pence regime will repeatedly launch new highly repressive measures, eventually clamping down on all resistance and remaking the law … IF THEY ARE NOT DRIVEN FROM POWER.” https://refusefascism.org/new-call-home/
