The Culture of Bigotry

"The World Can’t Wait organizes people living in the United States to repudiate and stop the fascist direction initiated by the Bush Regime, including: the murderous, unjust and illegitimate occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan; the global “war of terror” of torture, rendition and spying; and the culture of bigotry, intolerance and greed."

Roy Eidelson | June 27, 2017

Later this summer, millions of Americans — from Oregon to South Carolina — will be looking skyward to witness a rare total solar eclipse as the moon briefly blots out the sun.

Donald Trump is considering a 'brand new' immigration order after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld suspension of his travel ban Thursday. "You'll see something next week," said the President. His January 27 executive order barred people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering for 90 days and barred all refugees for 120 days.

The Fascist Resumé of Trump's Chief Strategist Steve Bannon

bannonOne of Donald Trump's first decisions as president-elect was to name Steve Bannon his chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon managed Trump's campaign. Before that he was the owner and hands-on force behind the website Breitbart News Network. Mainstream news and Bannon himself call Bannon's politics "conservative," "alt-right," or "white nationalist." It's worse than that.


No Magical Thinking about Trump

Curt Wechsler | November 22, 2016

As speculation swirls around how bad a Trump regime will prove -- which promises he'll keep and which he will abandon -- magical thinking delays a proper response to the very real deployment of fascist rule in America. "That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn or be forced to accept," reads the original World Can't Wait call to Drive Out the Bush Regime.

I attended a rally this week to Let In the Refugees. People were there of all nationalities, backgrounds and generations.
