#WhyWeResist (THREAD) Renowned spiritual leader John Neuhas once said:
"Genuine #tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences w/in a bond of #civility & #respect." #CampaignforCivility 1/
Neuhas was not completely right. #Fascists, #WhiteSupremacists, Nazis, bigots, etc. lambast progressives for not tolerating their views. But hateful extremists use #tolerance merely as a tool to gain acceptance & obtain power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 2/
Once fascists & bigots are in power, they vilify all who are different, all who dare to disagree. They only care about one thing: consolidating their power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 3/
Authoritarian bigots care not for the rule of law, historical precedent, or preserving democratic institutions. They will try destroy any independent institutions that challenge their power. #ChecksAndBalances are enemies to be pulverized. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 4/
This is #HappeningNow, right before our eyes. As #IL AG candidate @Renato_Mariotti said, Trump tells us not to trust the #FBI, #DOJ, the media, & the courts. He is trying to undermine every independent check on his power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 5/
& @DevinNunes are co-conspirators in Trump's efforts to undermine independent checks on his power. @DavidFrum, Bush43's ex-speechwriter said the @GOP's #FBImemo demonstrates that they completely back Trump's effort to derail the #RussiaInvestigation. #WhyWeResist 6/
True #ToleranceMeans standing up for what is core to the American identity, which is heterogenous and plural. We must protect all of those whom Trump & the #MAGACoalition are targeting in their unholy alliance. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 7/
As he sat in one of Hitler's concentration camps, Protestant pastor Martin Niemoller penned his epoch poem: "1st they came for the socialists & I did not speak out b/c I wasn't a socialist... then they came for me, & there was no one left to speak for me." #WhyWeResist 8/
Similarly, Trump has attacked African Americans, women, POWs, the disabled, Gold Star families, Mexicans, Muslims. Now he focuses his vitriol on our Intelligence Community, the courts, #Mueller, @FBI, #DOJ, the press. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 9/
Only #WeThePeople can stop fascism's march across the USA. Ask yourself, if not me, who? If not now, when? I pledge to #resist Trump & GOP fascism each & every day until they are history. Let's keep up #TheResistance. #StayWoke #BlueWaveIsComing #MuellerIsComing #WhyWeResist 10/
