So about that showers/gas chamber thing [View all]

Yeah, yeah, I know. "The Nazi comparison ends the conversation.”

Sorry, but given what’s going on today, that’s no longer true.

Trump, his evil elves, and today’s Republican Party, have crashed through decency, ethics, morality, fascism, and whatever it is we define as a sane civilization. Trump, and the Republican Party, have long since crossed the line that would prevent any decent human being from using the term Nazi.

Harsh? Yes.

True? Decide for yourself.

I don’t need to reiterate all the things that have occurred since this horrible man has been nominated and elected by people who don’t "get it." (Along with those people who do get it and just don’t give a damn).

Not many here on DU need further explanation. Most, if not all of you, know what I’m saying.

Please, please, forget that earlier taboo about who is or isn’t a Nazi. Do you really want to wait until you’re invited to “take a shower” in order to grasp reality?

We are about a dozen or so days from our worst nightmares coming into being. Election Day, 2017 should be treated as a day of mourning. A day on which America lost its compass regarding right and wrong.

So it really comes down to this. “What can we do?”

We Democrats will control none of the levers of power and our options are severely limited. So what now?

Some of you have seen my posts over the past three days about changing your avatar to an upside down flag. It’s not a symbol of disrespect. It’s a symbol of distress.

And, yeah. I know. It’s a tiny symbol of rebellion. But in days to come, every small cry of distress will add to what may, hopefully, become a tidal wave of resistance to oppression.

Donald Trump, those who surround and advise him, and the Republican Party that defers to him, are deadly enemies to our freedoms and our democracy.

So what can you, or any of us do about it? Speak up, join others who think as we do, bitch, complain, try to convert our relatives and friends who voted for him, and engage in virtually any other activity that will damage/decrease/destroy his influence.

And please, don’t hesitate to use the term “Nazi.” We are looking at an appropriate and possible comparison to one of the worst horrors in recent human history.

Then again, you may not buy any of this crap. But what the hell. Millions of others who didn't buy into such crap were among those herded into "shower rooms." And we know what happened then.
