When did it become Un-American to punch a fucking fascist in the fucking face?
Let me be clear what I am saying here, I don’t think violence solves anything, in fact I don’t think there is such a thing as a heroic war, or a just war, or really any “just” reason to hurt people. I am not talking about my personal views however, but American culture.
We won world war two! We stopped the Nazi’s! Captain America Punched Hitler! These used to be giant points of pride for Americans. Our patriotic violence saved the world! We were sure of ourselves in a way that future wars lacked. Vietnam, and Afghanistan, Both Iraq wars, none of these had that purity of purpose that world war two did. Mostly because we were fighting fascists. We knew they needed to be stopped, and while we did it with violence then, we still did it.
So why is that when a bunch of cowardly fascist white men get comically stupid Tiki torches and march around trying to pathetically ape ugly messages from our past we don’t all patriotically punch them in their mother fucking faces?
Why is it that when a cowardly white man plows his car into a group of heroic anti-fascist protesters our weak white bread president can’t even condemn it?
Are we the America where Nazi’s fear being punched in the face? Or are we the America where the wealthy make the rules, and the fascists can walk openly killing whom they please without so much as a peep from the rest of us?
I don’t want to punch Nazi’s in the face, but I want them to live in fear of sharing their views openly. I want them to know there are consequences for such abhorrent behavior. They have a bankrupt and empty ideology based on hatred and prejudice. They have no place in a modern world. The last time they came to power millions died stopping them. Are we going to let that happen again in this country?
I sure as shit am not going to let that happen. Anyone who doesn’t fight against fascists doesn’t get my vote. If the president wont fight them, he gets impeached. If big money corporate interests wont fight fascists they don’t get my dollar. Its that simple, every peaceful and useful measure will be taken to make sure these cowardly fuckers get no quarter in our modern society.

You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.

Use this website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).

Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
