In light of yesterday’s shooting, I guess we need to clarify the proper way to to resist our terrible, horrible, no good, very bad president and the party that is propping him up. Especially, since I am a Bernie supporter, and I think Trump is the biggest embarrassment ever to hold the office of president. There are just two rules, and they aren’t hard to follow.
- Hate Trump and those complicit in advancing his agenda and covering up his corruption.
- Do NOT shoot Trump and those complicit in advancing his agenda and covering up his corruption.
That’s it. Don’t fuck this up for us. Follow these rules and the staggering weight of Trump’s natural inclination to violate the law will be his downfall and move the constitutional process forward to remove him from office, and severely damage the political careers of those who stood by him. Violence against him and those that support him only elevates them and makes it easier for them to ram their agenda through the political process. It does not help anyone but those public servants we are trying to return to the private sector.
We are all Americans. We disagree. We scream at each other. Tempers flare. It has always been that way. But we must NOT resort to violence. Dissent only works if we hold moral authority over the corruption we are trying to end.
