When people standing up for what is rigth are attacked by the powers that be, in this case the Trump/Pence regime, MORE people need to speak up.
In the NFL a stand against oppresion of Black People last year was revived in sports with #Kaepernick stand, then other courageous players followed and supported him.
But this fascist regime is going after oposition, after the very rights of people, is clamping down on critical thinking and the very concept of the truth. The battle for Berkeley is an example of that. The attacks on the media are example of that. And the attacks on NFL players who refuse to celebrate the symbols of a country rooted in white supremacy are an example of that.
But there is a very important lesson to learn from what happened in the NFL as well as the Globan Citizen event in NYC. When the fascists come after one, MORE PEOPLE GOT TO SPEAK UP! repression needs to be met with more resistance, with more determination to fight.
Right now there is a fight for humanity and the planet, a fight to drive out the Trump/Pence regime from power, and on november 4 sustained political resistance begins in the streets. Because the powers that be are vicious, that fight is going to be repressed, and they will try to divide us and crush us. But because of what is at stakes is the very future of humanity, that repression needs to be met with more people stepping up and joining in. And we must grow, by inspiring people with our actions, by letting everyone know there is a way to act, by meeting repression with even more determination to fight, and to win, because WE MUST WIN!
IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY THIS NIGHTMARE MUST END TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO!

Since Tew and Gwennig don't have knees, they decided to show solidarity with peacefully protesting Saints players by turning around during the national anthem today. Gwennig's apropos quote of the day: "If intimidation is your game plan, I hope you have a better one" (Colin Kaepernick). Tew then pointed out that she's happy Gwennig didn't choose a Trump quote since in addition to not being able to genuflect, she can't grab too well either. #fatcat#neworleanssaints#colinkaepernick#peacefulprotest#peacefulfatcatprotest#philosophersheep#mutton
