Mike Pence is a fascist and he is a theocrat. Mike Pence’s ideal society is akin to The Handmaids Tale. Margaret Atwood’s Handmaids Tale tells the story of a fascist theocratic world where women are enslaved, raped and forced to give birth against their will and LGBTQ people are killed.
Mike Pence and the fascist Trump Regime he is a key part of are working quickly to consolidate power. They have already made great strides in re-making the law and shredding the constitution. (Read more on this below.)
We must act now, before it is too late. We need to send a message to the people of the world that we will not tolerate this. This is why we are calling on everyone to descend on Notre Dame, Indiana and join in these protests, stand with these students and connect this up with a unifying demand, “The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go.”
Bringing your outrage, the NO!, and the Refuse Fascism Call to Action into this important protest is a key part of working to organize millions of people to take the streets day after day, night after night, and not leaving til the entire regime is driven out.

With talks of a special prosecutor and whispers of impeachment of Trump, it is CRUCIAL that mass opposition to Mike Pence becomes more visual, determined and widespread. Not just Trump, but the whole regime must go.
Is Mike Pence A Christian Fascist? We Say Yes.
Mike Pence and his whole Christian fascist movement oppose all birth control. He (falsely) said that condoms offer “very, very poor protection against sexually transmitted disease.” Already this regime is moving to strip away birth control, via the de-funding of Planned Parenthood & abortion providers, the implementation of TrumpCare which both calls rape a pre-existing condition and allows employers to deny their employees birth control on the basis of “religious belief.”
Mike Pence or Donald Trump both view women as LESS than fully human. Trump himself, caught on video saying “Grab em by the pussy” and Mike Pence himself refuses to be alone in a room with a woman if his wife is not there. In response to the epidemic of rape in the military, Trump said “What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?” Pence criticized the movie Mulan for painting the picture that woman in the military could be equal to men.
In February, Trump rescinded the bathroom laws that protected trans-gendered children. These laws were originated to make sure that children were safe to use the bathroom of their choice. Revoking this law is dehumanizing and degrading to all TRANS people. The executive order “Religious Liberty Act,” signed on May 4th, provides a legal basis for organizations to discriminate against LGBTQ people on the basis of “religious belief.” Mike Pence has always seen homosexuality as a signal of society collapse. In a 2006 he said, “societal collapse was always brought about following an advent of the deterioration of marriage and family.”
