You realize that isn’t on trump. As despicable as he may be as a president. He’s not been doing this.
And as I stated above the argument is not about if the SS should be protecting the POTUS and their family. They should be and are. We don’t change what has been a proper function for all this time because of one undesirable president. Nor is the secret service function have anything to do with judicial systems, extremism, or politics.
I am curious, since changing the constitution requires a consensus that obviously isn’t there and seeing that about half of all Americans who vote, vote Republican… what’s your plan for doing this? Civil war?
And who do you suppose is going to win the civil war? Because the right wing is also made up of the working class because, honestly, in a system so far down the income inequality slip’n’slide as America evidently is, very nearly everyone is.
Trump’s actual fanbase is extremely small and rapidly shrinking. Like the 120+ white nationalists who showed up to meet a crowd of 40,000 in Boston last weekend, they can be very loud on social media, but in the real world, they’re powerless.
Sorry. Old lefty reflexes. If you sell your labor, you are working class in my head.
That said… while the petit bourgeois of Bavaria were Hitler’s base, and while the industrial workers were the base of the Bolsheviks, I’ve not once seen an American communist who’s hasn’t either finished university or been at university. And in America a university education costs.
To some of you, this will be irritatingly obvious and perhaps patronising. To some of you, this will be unacceptably wrong, and equally irritating. But for the record, and addressed purely to the Americans:
This is what I have been trying to tell you for two years.
I have not been calling for armed insurrection. What I have been saying is that if you do not get your shit together and organise with your neighbours to shut down the streets, then an armed insurrection is inevitable. And if it gets to that point, then an armed insurrection is the least bad of a host of diabolically shitty options.
You have a very, very short time period in which you still have a chance to avert that outcome. If you do not, WWIII happens. And we’re all in it. Everyone. Everywhere.
I am not going to throw some emotional plea on the end, because by this stage it would be pointless. Act, or don’t act. It’s your choice.
