LADY LIBERTY IS STILL WATCHING YOU!
This Saturday heed the warning of Martin Luther King Jr.
“…And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights….” Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream”
Were moms and men, women and children, simply blowing off steam when they marched in last year’s Women’s March? Will they be content to return to business as usual? NO!
The reasons I marched are equally true today if not more true. This administration has proven to be even more bigoted, cruel, incompetent, and corrupt than we warned last year. The president has continued to falsely bash Americans and American institutions, eroding the fabric of our democratic society.
If you add up the hateful things Trump has said about women, Muslims, Mexican-Americans, American cities, FBI, Intelligence agencies, journalists, free press, judges, Congressional Democrats (and Republicans!), his own “loyal” staffers, foreign allies, (and fill in blank___!), and then add up who Trump has endorsed or failed to condemn…
- law-breaking sheriff/judge Joe Arpaio
- corrupt oligarch Vladimir Putin
- brutal Rodrigo Duterte
- Turkey’s President Erdogan
- Saudi role in oppression
- alleged pedophile Roy Moore
…it becomes clear that he has no interest in protecting Americans, and upholding American laws and American ideals.
Meanwhile, Congressional Republicans remain complicit. It is up to us to “Show me what democracy looks like!” See you this Saturday!!
