By Ana Castillo (October 3, 2017) “We will not rest, however, until the people of Puerto Rico are safe. …and we will be there every day until that happens,” he said. A few days later, the Narcissist blasted: “… Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get…

Raids_c0-0-3500-2040_s885x516

By Chuck Morse (September 7, 2017) This is what we’re looking at: Trump: We’re going to deport the Dreamers in six months! Democrats: Don’t do that! Trump: Ok, I won’t deport them, but you have to support my plans to further militarize the border.  Democrats: Ok, sure. No problem. – We can’t allow this to happen. The militarization of borders…

By Chris Crass (August 22, 2017) After the massive anti-racist/anti-fascist marches for racial justice, with Black Lives Matter in the lead, in Boston and Charlottesville, the racist anti-Muslim, pro-Trump organization Act for America have cancelled 67 rallies in 36 states and replaced their day of action into an online protest. This is a significant victory and shows that mass public…

Multiple Strategies Needed to Defeat the Racist Right

sessions

By Chris Lowe (August 22, 2017) Which would do more to impede the growth of the racist right, and the attacks on people of color, immigrants, Muslims, and other targets: 1) Mobilizing against “Trump free speech” rallies that the white nationalist right is using to insert themselves into the Tea Party base and spread their rhetoric there, or 2) mobilizing…

Trump is Dangerous but Not a Fascist

what-is-fascism

By Marc Cooper (August 4, 2017) I hope this is the last post EVER I do on the “debate” over whether or not Trumpism is Fascism. As a student of 1930’s Europe I could give you a long and boring recount why it is not. I will reduce that whole history to two sentences: historically Fascism only rises to power…

White Nationalism is the Core of Trump Administration

deport

By Joe Lowndes (August 3, 2017) Over the last week the White House appeared to be in a kind of free fall, marked by palace intrigue, organizational chaos, and of course, the rise and fall of the Mooch. In contrast this commedia dell-arte however, we now get two proposals that advance a clear domestic agenda: the proposed immigration “merit system”…

Trump_authoritarian.0

By Alexander Reid Ross (July 28, 2017) The evening after the Boy Scouts of America issued a public apology for Donald Trump’s behavior, his new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, went on a profanity laced rampage against the chief of staff, Reince Priebus.

trump-russia-1254x400

By Alexander Reid Ross (July 12, 2017) I just don’t get all the jockeying and positioning of some leftists around Trump and Russia. Now that it’s been proven that the Trump Campaign actively embraced Russian espionage, there are fewer people giddy over denying the whole thing (and comparing good journalists to conspiracy theorists in the process). However, it’s now fashionable…

By Mark Naison (July 6, 2017)   Historians are detectives. We follow the evidence to arrive at the best available explanation of why events take place. And to me, the trail of evidence to explain Donald Trump’s election doesn’t lead to Russia, it leads us into the inner workings of the Democratic Party- who leads it, who funds it, what…

Resistance Will Require Organizing, Not Symbols

not

By Marc Cooper (June 28, 2017) Trump is truly confounding. Unless you understand the core truth about him. His permanent insecurity leads him to seek immediate and instant adulation and that is about it. He has no other “strategy” — in any realm of his life. Every other president in history, for myriad reasons including the most banal, has tried…

What Does Interracial Marriage Have to do With Immigration?

loving

By Joseph Orosco (June 12, 2017) Two legal news items today that may seem disconnected, but are not. In fact, they are reflections of the deep legacy of white supremacy in the United States. Today is the 50th anniversary of the US Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia, which struck down the 1924 Racial Integrity Act that prohibited whites…
