“In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America. The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!” declares a spectacular full page ad in today’s NYTimes from RefuseFascism.org. The ad was designed by Shepard Fairey and signed by Cornel West, Noam Chomsky, Lilly Wachowski, V (formerly Eve Ensler), Arturo O’Farrill, Jodie Sweetin and many others.
Originally written before Biden was declared the winner by the media, this Pledge in this ad is more urgent and necessary than ever. I was overjoyed to be in Brooklyn and to learn of Trump’s declared defeat through the spontaneous eruptions of joy right outside my window and to join with thousands of others dancing and crying in the streets.
But the fight is far from over! Trump is still in power. He is challenging the election in the courts which he has stacked with fascist judges up to the Supreme Court. His MAGA thugs are in the streets. Over 70 million voted for his vicious torture of immigrants, violent white supremacy, hateful misogyny, anti-LGBTQ bigotry, science-denying, COVID-spreading, climate-destroying, nuclear-war-threatening FASCIST program.
We must build on the victory of defeating him electorally to drive him and his fascist regime out of power and beat back his fascist program in every corner of society. This ad serves that — it is a voice of moral clarity and must be a rallying cry.
Read the full Pledge to the People of the World below. Then, go here to sign your name to it and donate generously.
This Saturday, November 14, join RefuseFascism.org and others nationwide in the streets to counter Trump’s ongoing attempts to steal the election and demand: TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!
