Yesterday, on Juneteenth, Trump tweeted an open threat to those standing up for racial justice.
“Any protesters, anarchists, agitators, looters or lowlifes who are going to Oklahoma please understand, you will not be treated like you have been in New York, Seattle, or Minneapolis. It will be a much different scene.”
Once again, Trump escalates threats to unleash even more violence and brutality in order to kill a righteous uprising of the people and attack the right to dissent.
Refuse Fascism says “we’ll see you in Tulsa and around the U.S.!” We are bringing the movement of sustained, non-violent protest demanding Trump/Pence Out Now to the gates of Donald Trump’s abhorrent white supremacist rally on the weekend we celebrate emancipation from slavery, and to his Star in Hollywood.
Coco Das of the Editorial Board of Refuse Fascism says, “Trump snarling like a caged animal, seeking to unleash all the forces he can to consolidate fascist power. If they are allowed to win, they will exact revenge & terror aimed at permanently destroying our ability to stand up again, re-imposing virulent white supremacy. This is why it’s so urgent to get this regime’s hands off the levers of power without delay.”
Carl Dix, founding member of the Revolutionary Communist Party and co-initiator of Refuse Fascism, said this morning, “While the movement to defend Black lives and end white supremacist police murder has inspired protests all over the world, it has terrified one person in particular – that bloated bag of fascist feces named Donald Trump. Black lives, and the lives of millions of others from targeted groups, are in peril as long as Trump and his regime remain in power.”
Trump brings an American fascism, rooted in the Confederacy, wrapped in the flag and Mike Pence’s Bible taken literally, spreading its poison of white supremacy, misogyny, xenophobia, and oppressive, fundamentalist “traditional” values. We are the only force that can stop this, millions of people staying in the streets and refusing to go home until our demand – Trump/Pence Out Now! – is met.
