If mobilizing around RBG’s passing is simply going to be about holding the line on abortion rights, then groups like Planned Parenthoos and Ultraviolet will simply be doubling down on a failed strategy. I suspect that these organizations and their followers will support a corporate, neoliberal appointee to the Court just so long as he or she pledges to uphold Roe v. Wade. Identity politics is so self-limiting. Ruth Bader Ginsburg in fact was so much broader than that. Making her a “one issue” justice is also desecrating her memory.

No Fascist SCOTUS

TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!

Trump deliberately deceived the world about the danger of the virus at the cost of tens of thousands of lives. Bob Woodward got it on tape! Now, Trump continues to lie, assail science, traffic in conspiracy theories, hold super-spreading rallies, and sabotage attempts to contain the pandemic. Many of those lost – disproportionately Latinx, Black and Native American – Trump would have gladly killed off anyway.

This is Trump’s genocidal, fascist worldview. Will it be yours?

In word and deed, each of us must show where we stand.

On September 21, mark the grim milestone of 200,000 Covid-19 deaths with the resounding demand for an end to the death, lies, and fascist escalation: TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!

The science-hating response to COVID-19 is but one leading edge of an entire program of hatred, bigotry, and cruelty directed at the masses of people. The different strands of this fascist program – the white supremacy, the misogyny, the xenophobia, wrapped in the flag and the Bible taken literally – are consolidating into a different form of rule in this country, relying on violence, terror, and brutality.

Waiting for or relying on the upcoming election alone – an election Trump is already sabotaging and refusing to be bound by – to remove this regime is not just irresponsible. It is complicity.

We must rise now, as millions did earlier this year for Black lives, uniting and preparing to struggle with all we’ve got to oust this fascist regime and bring its program to a halt. Our actions must lead into an October of people from many different backgrounds and viewpoints coming together week after week, day after day, in growing continuing nonviolent protests that do not stop until this demand is met: TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!

In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!​

Indeed, RBG demonstrated a level of humanity that can be applied in our lives on so many levels. The fact that she supported a woman’s right to privacy in the care of her person speaks volumes. As she stated, it shouldn’t be considered gender politics.

I agree, time for Trump/Pence to get a much needed break from public life. Retirement is a good thing.

“There cannot be a new nominee until January.
If Trump tries to confirm one before then, there will be massive resistance on a scale this country has never seen before and Women’s March is committed to mobilizing the millions of women who march with us to protect our liberties.”

gee I hope so
