‘Refuse Fascism’ Calls for 60 Days of Protests to Oust ‘Demented Bully’ Trump

Hundreds of marchers, many of whom held up signs that read, “Flush the turd,” gathered in downtown Chicago on Saturday as part of protests against President Trump in 23 cities across the country, organized by the leftwing radicals of Refuse Fascism.

On its website, Refuse Fascism called for “60 Days of Struggle” against “this illegitimate regime”: “By October there needs to be a situation in this country where protests happen day after day. Protests that make visceral the demand that Trump and Pence Must Go.”

“No one can say that this can’t lead to a situation where Trump is driven out before the elections,” the website statement continued, “but short of that, sustained protests in October can and must lead to a situation where on Election Day people don’t just vote against Trump in big numbers but there are mobilized people/forces prepared to oppose – with massive, sustained non-violent protest – the fascist forces we know the Trump regime is planning to unleash.

Speaking at the Los Angeles protest on Saturday, group member Sunsara Taylor (pictured above) called Trump a “demented bully” and accused him of building concentration camps, brandishing nuclear weapons, and denying science. “All this will get far worse if this fascist regime is allowed a second term,” she ranted.

In an effort to prevent a Trump presidency from even getting off the ground, the RF manifesto exhorted leftist agitators nationwide to pour into the streets by “the tens of millions,” so as to “create … a profound political crisis” that would stop “the fascist regime” from being “able to take the reins of government.”

But when Trump’s January 2017 inauguration ultimately proceeded on schedule, RF shifted its objective to “driving from office” Trump and his “Legion of Doom” cabinet of “white supremacists, woman haters, science deniers, religious fundamentalist zealots, and war mongers.”[1]

Toward that end, RF drafted a petition titled Refuse Fascism Call to Action, which charged that the Trump “regime,” in its quest “to establish a fascist order under the signboard of ‘America First,’” had already “begun subverting the separation of powers [and] the separation of Church and State, called for a new nuclear arms race, demonized the press, [and] dismissed the very concept of truth [by] substituting their own fabricated ‘alternative facts.’” Asserting, further, that “there is method to Trump’s madness” that “echoes Hitler” and is “more dangerous to the world than even Hitler,” the RF petition claims that President Trump’s brand of fascism promotes “xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive ‘traditional values.’”
