Fascism is an ideology that must be resisted and defeated. The Antifa world war fought in the 1940s was vital and was won because humanity organized a broad popular front to confront and beat back the forces of hate, intolerance and authoritarianism.

That's our fight today, but now that hateful ideology is reborn in the Republican Party, which demonizes immigrants & the LGBTQ community, promotes white supremacy, denies climate change is real, is working to deregulate child labor, environmental protection, imposes monstrous laws denying women control over their own bodies, bans books and the teaching of US slavery and our nation's racist history, is working to make it easier for mass murderers to purchase weapons of war that's led to gun assaults being the leading killer of children in the U.S., opposes access to universal health care, and worships a man who is guilty of sexual assault, business corruption, engaged in multiple instances of infidelity after his wife gave birth to the couple's only child, killed hundreds of thousands of Americans with his deliberate mismanagement of the COVID pandemic for political gain, and incited a violent coup to stay in office as president despite losing a democratic election.

If Trump is your candidate and the Republican Party is your brand, you have no claim to being patriotic or upholding the word of ANY god. You are a member of a dangerous, toxic cult that accepts an endless daily stream of obvious lies and promotes depraved conspiracy theories. The fascist MAGA movement can only bring suffering, death and destruction to our nation, and it must be stopped!
