This is the first in a series of three forums put together by Refuse Fascism and the Revolution Nothing Less show to dig more deeply into the roots of the fascism that has grown and hardened over the past four years, and is still with us as tens of millions voted for Trump. These forums bring people together who are asking big questions and raising their sights to a world beyond the Trump/Pence regime and their program of hate and bigotry.
NEXT FORUM is DEC 8 – Why did 74 million people vote for Trump? SIGN UP FOR DETAILS
The situation: Trump lost the election – Biden won by every objective and legal measure. Yet, Trump refuses to concede and the fascist Republican Party is working to overturn the election.
Almost half the US electorate believes Trump won and Biden stole the election – many espousing Q-Anon lunacy. MAGA mobs filled the streets of Washington DC last weekend and continue to mobilize across the country.
Some questions: For the last four years have we been dealing with just the most reactionary and corrupt Republican administration in US history? Will things just go back to “normal”? Or, are we dealing with something different – a fascist regime which cohered a virulent hard core fascist movement that is not just going away? What are the implications for the future?
