Two days before electors vote to make Biden’s win official, Trump’s mindless followers rallied in DC behind the fiction of a stolen election. At Black Lives Matter Plaza, away from their rally and in front of the White House, Refuse Fascism called people into the street to declare:
STOP Trying to Overturn the Election!
STOP Your Murderous COVID Program!
STOP Your Dangerous War Moves!
STOP Whipping Up MAGA Fascist Mobs!
Trump/Pence OUT NOW!
Decent people need to stand the hell up and stop what is going on: Trump is attempting a fascist coup! Republicans nationwide are fighting to throw out millions of votes, while Trump’s fascist mobs terrorize elected officials and poll workers. Whether they succeed in overturning this particular election, they are succeeding in normalizing what no one can deny is fascist behavior toward public officials, dissenters and elections, with ominous implications for not just the future but the near-term present. So when his mindless supporters descend on DC this weekend, we will be in the public square saying: NO! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America!
