Taking back human rights
It is not enough for these inhuman Cretans under Trump to prohibit transgender people from serving in the military, thousands of whom are already serving and spilling blood for us. Under Jeff Sessions
they are trying to dismember legal antidiscrimination law protecting ALL gay people as the "Justice Department argues landmark civil rights law doesn’t protect gay people."
Thankfully, this will be decided by the courts unless, of course, the Beast puts in right wing extremists judges who may side with the now insanely intolerant Justice Department. Take this to the extreme and soon gay people could be arrested, jailed, rounded up or worse providing a glimpse into what Fascism looks like.
Pastor Niemoller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Moral of the story: Elections matter. RESIST!!!
