January 2019 Archives

January 22 marks the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade,  the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. Yet today the procedure is more stigmatized, more dangerous to provide, and more difficult to access than at any time since legal confirmation of women's reproductive freedom. This week, share our outrage that reactionary forces would undo decades of legal precedent, targeting San Francisco with their hateful vision of repression. 

Organizers of the so-called "March for Life" will bus in tens of thousands of Christian fascists to march down Market Street, as they have for the last 14 years. We must mount a powerful counter-protest.

Saturday, January 26, defenders of reproductive rights will take to the streets to challenge the so-called "Walk for Life" sponsored by anti-abortion, anti-women fanatics.

Meet up 12:30 pm, Powell & Market, for a march to One Post Plaza.

A bold contingent of Handmaids will create a visual statement of opposition to the nightmare world of brutal and extreme subjugation of women so powerfully captured in the novel and TV show The Handmaid's Tale.

Never shy about his misogynist convictions, Mike Pence's contempt for women's rights -- forcing women to bear children against their will -- constitutes a major component of all-around American fascism. His resistance to AIDs funding, persecution of LGBTQ people, and abuse of immigrant children reflect the Biblical foundation of a new newly created Religious Liberty Task Force.

Just last Friday the U.S. Vice President made a surprise appearance on stage to introduce President Trump's prerecorded video for The Right to Life Campaign's annual rally. "We know that every life has meaning," Trump said. The hypocrisy of that statement, in light of the Trump/Pence regime's largely uncontested bombing of civilians across the globe, would be hard to match.

We will NOT be silent in the face of hatred. We will NOT stay home as fascists parade through the streets. We will STAND UP for abortion rights, and CONFRONT & DEFEAT this war on women! 

Join Refuse Fascism Bay Area and Revolution Books to STOP PATRIARCHY. End the Enslavement and Degradation of Women.

Fascism Cannot Be Voted Out



The People Must Drive It From Power 

The Trump/Pence Regime was imposed on the citizenry of this country by the Electoral College, asserts Isabel Cardenas, Salvadoran-American activist and co-initiator of RefuseFascism.org. She further contends Trump needs to be removed because he and his regime divides people and promotes white supremacy like Nazi Germany, reported Wes Woods II to the Los Angeles Daily News.

"Demonization of immigrants is at the very core of the fascist program of Trump," charges Revolution Newspaper, "part of a whole thrust to 'make America white again.'" The whole program and mentality being promoted by the Trump/Pence regime must be thoroughly rejected and stopped.

Supporters will contribute this message to the Women's March San Francisco Saturday, January 19

World Can't Wait will Meet up with Refuse Fascism at 11:00 am
Civic Center Plaza, Larkin and Grove Street, San Francisco
Plan to March 1:30 pm to the Embarcadero

Leading Democrats don't disagree with the demonization and criminalization of immigrants, they object to the "bad optics" of a concrete border wall. "Contending forces of a capitalist-imperialist dictatorship" compete over who can better carry out the program of U.S. supremacy behind Trump's highly repressive assault on immigrants. What we need to fight for is a world without borders.   

Trump Is As Much a Product of Our Country as Hitler and Mussolini Were of Theirs

"We didn't get into this fix by accident and we won't get out painlessly, if at all," argues History Professor Robert Zaller. "If Donald Trump was and is something unimaginable, we must also recognize the degree to which he was also inevitable." Fascism not only can happen in the U.S., it has happened here, says Zaller: "In Donald J. Trump, America now has its first fascist president."

Through an unrelenting barrage of daily outrages and twitter outbursts, the Trump/Pence regime is radically remaking society. Nothing short of removing the whole illegitimate Trump/Pence regime from power will stop this nightmare. Join us!

 Mr. Trump's first Oval Office address felt like a non-event agree The New Yorker writers John Cassidy and Masha Gessen.

"A measure of how much has changed in two years -- how far we have fallen -- is that commentators have stopped saying that Trump is 'Presidential' when he manages to read from the teleprompter," says Gessen. "This isn't because Trump has changed or the commentators have changed. It's because he has redefined what 'Presidential' is."

920x920.jpgAbsent the impetus of the declaration of a state of emergency foreshadowed by political pundits, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi countered Trump's demand for a border wall with Mexico with the moral-less stance that: 'It costs too much'. Instead of denouncing death in detention camps, the violation of human rights suffered by families in hieleras, or the kidnapping of children by agents of the U.S. government, Schumer and Pelosi choose to ally themselves with the President's position.

"Make no mistake," Schumer says, "Democrats and the President both want stronger border security." Facilitating the denial of international protection afforded asylum seekers desperate to escape untenable living conditions -- exacerbated by U.S. meddling in Latin American countries -- the shameless duo confer legitimacy to the genocidal policies of a fascist regime consolidating in full view of an immobilized citizenry of "leftist" or "progressive" persuasion.    

We can't wait for Democrats to save us from this nightmare. 

2018 has ended with two Guatemalan children dead in U.S. detention at the border, "their precious lives lost in the hands of this regime," writes RefuseFascism.com contributor Coco Das. "What do we owe those children, and the lives around the world hanging in the balance? Our mission today is as clear as it was when we began, to bring millions into the streets in a sustained, non-violent movement to demand, in the name of humanity, the Trump/Pence regime must go. There is much turbulence roiling above, but the waters down here are far too calm. There is only one kind of disorder a fascist regime fears, the disorder and disobedience of the masses of people. We must very soon take advantage of the divisions at the top with a massive disruption from below, to un-calm the waters on our terms and wrench a different future out of this turmoil."
