Midnight Meme Of The Day


-by Noah

When Herr Trump decided to further embolden, legitimize, and normalize American Nazis, the KKK, and other White Supremacy advocates the other day, it wasn’t the first time. It was just the most forceful time he’s done it. He was no longer just re-tweeting the tweets and sentiments of these groups, as if that wasn’t horrific enough. It also wasn’t just like when he encouraged these sick people by accepting and welcoming their attendance at his campaign rallies last summer. No, this time it was at a nationally televised press conference at his home, surrounded by his staff and other members of his team. It was at Trump Tower, a place that now might as well be flying a Nazi flag above its Fifth Avenue doorway.

As Trump spoke and gave succor to people who, like him, stand for fighting against the America our founding fathers envisioned, I thought of my father’s generation and how that generation came together to crush like-minded people in World War II.

I can’t speak for my father’s generation, a generation often called “the greatest generation.” But, to say the least, I, and so many others, have a good idea that they would be more than a little dismayed and saddened to see that we now have to fight such human perversions again; this time in our own streets and towns, while an elected President Of The United States, his White House staff, and even the vast majority of his party, try to grow their numbers. Such people who fought fascists were not “alt-left”; they were patriots.

I CAN speak for my father who spent 29 months of his life away from home fighting against the Nazis.

He'd be livid that the sacrifices he and so many more made were for naught. And he'd be despondent that so much of American white society could be so fucking evil.
If he had not already passed, this would kill him.
