Trump’s Civil War - Liberal Resistance

Trump’s Civil War

By Marc Keyser, TheResistance.Blog

Alex Jones, the far-right-crazy-conspiracy-theory phony, claimed on his “Infowars” show that “Democrats plan to launch civil war on July 4.”

This is a nonsense. Mr. Trump with his racist attacks on minorities has already started the Second Civil War in America.

“At present, America feels like a broken country. Democrats and Republicans do not live in the same neighborhoods or communities. Nor do Democrats and Republicans communicate with each other in meaningful and personal ways.

Liberals and conservatives have little overlap in their fundamental beliefs about the common good and what it means to live in a just and democratic society. Even the ability to find common ground on the basic nature of empirical reality and the facts seems impossible across divides of party and political belief.

Donald Trump did not create these deep fissures in American society. He and his racist movement put dynamite in them, lit the fuse, walked away, and laughed at the destruction and chaos which resulted — destruction which they would in turn use to advance their goals.

America is in a moment when prominent voices on both the left and the right — and often motivated by very different concerns — have begun to publicly sound the alarm about the possibility of a second civil war in the United States.


Trump has declared war on Americans who hold him in contempt.

Mr. Trump is under investigation in the Trump-Russian probe, and he’s trapped. He has to discredit FBI and fire the special counsel appointed to investigate him. He has to end the Trump-Russia investigation… or face impeachment, indictment, conviction, and imprisonment. The special counsel’s investigation is closing in. Is Trump desperate enough to call out his base to start a real war in the streets of America?

Trump was asked a question about bringing the country together. Instead of saying anything to bringing the country together after tearing the county apart, this is what Trump said:

“I think some of the things that are said (about him and his cult following of racists) are terrible. And you know, it’s our people are so incredible — do you know, there’s probably never been a base in the history of politics in this country like my base. I hope the other side realizes that they better just take it easy. They better just take it easy because some of the language used, some of the words used, even some of the radical ideas I really think they are very bad for the country. I think they are actually very dangerous for the country.”

Trump’s natural impulse, when confronted with protest and dissent, is to threaten to crush it with violence. Trump is trying to intimidate people who oppose him into silence by warning them that his “loyal followers”, his racists, Neo Nazi thugs, his Trump trolls will attack and “shut up” those who oppose the Trump regime… if they aren’t careful.

The daily racial attacks are growing and getting worse ….

Heather Heyer was struck and killed by a Nazi Trump supporter driving his car into a crowd of people protesting the white nationalist rally on 12 Aug. 2017.

Police shootings of black men, ICE agents tearing families apart at the border, the racial attacks in public places, the attacks on social media are growing and threaten to get much more violent.

Trump has polarized the nation to gain political power, and we are a nation as divided as we were before the civil war.

Trump is seeding his own revolution, his own second civil war to pit Americans against one another and overthrow the government from within in his rise to power. He is attacking the most vulnerable in society, undocumented immigrants, minorities, the old and the young while giving obscene tax breaks to riches 1% and their mega rich corporations.

Trump knows what’s coming with the Mueller investigation, and his only play is to incite his base – a significant part of this country- to repeat the investigation is a “witch hunt” and take to the streets to defend Trump. Trump is calling for a real revolution to overthrow the government, and we are in the winds war moving towards violent clashes in the streets.

Dictatorship or Democracy?

We cannot have a dictator in the While House destroying our government from within and still be a democracy. We must choose.

Trump is threatening those who believe he is a fascist dictator the way a fascist dictator would threaten people who believe he is a fascist dictator. Trump is signaling his base “do something” against the media and Democrats who continue to speak out.

Trump is inciting violence and unleashing his Nazis goons the way Hitler used his army of brown shirt Nazis to terrorize not just the Jews but anyone who stood in his way.

Capitol Gazette shooting that left five people dead. President Trump, who consistently blasts the “fake news” media and incites violence, called the attack a “horrible, horrible event” and said no one, including journalists, should fear a a violent attack for doing their job.

a violent attack for doing their job.

What a hypocrite.


We will not be intimidated.

This is not Nazi Germany, this is America. We are American. We will resist. We will fight. We must never submit to such tyranny. We must not tolerate Trump’s takeover of America.

The question is not if we should fight to save Democracy from this ruthless dictator and his Republican controlled Congress that is the Enemy of the People.

The question is how to fight, how to resist, how to throw a wrench in the machinery of government?

                                    Direct Action

 

Here’s a radical liberal idea Trump’s not going to like. We protest by phone.

Nothing could be more effective than an International Phone Protest against Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. Empower ordinary people to join in peacefully, non-violently calling to complain by the thousands, by the hundreds of thousands, by the millions. Disrupt their lines of communication, disrupt their business, create a financial crisis on Wall Street that puts pressure on Congress.

Trump and his racist-Neo Nazi base of supporters can’t stop activists on their phones from calling Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. No one can shut us up on the phones. No one.

There is no way for Bank of America and Merrill Lynch to answer the phones fast enough to clear the lines when thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of peaceful protesters are calling and jamming the lines… not just in the U.S., but in the UK and around the world.

The more Trump threatens protesters and incites violence, the more protesters will be drawn to the phones at home and around the world calling to protest and driving Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch into bankruptcy.

300 activists calling one bank branch of Bank of America in the US while 300 activists in the UK calling one office of Merrill Lynch should be sufficient to ignite a conflagration of calls.

What can you do? Call in solidarity and social network. Help make the news and go viral on the Internet. Activate callers in the U.S. and in the UK to join in calling. Throw a wrench in the works. Tie up their phones, disrupt their business, cost them money- a great deal of money. Call until their stock crashes on Wall Street and the pressure builds in Congress to impeach Trump. Congress can’t afford to let Bank of America and Merrill Lynch go under and face a nuclear meltdown on Wall Street.

Resistance leader Michael Moore calls on liberals to stand up to the Trump regime.

Moore warns that ‘Fascism is at the door step’

. On the Bill Maher show, he asked the audience if people are ready to die to protect democracy from Trump?

“What are people willing to commit to? What would you give your life for?” he asked. “What would you be willing to actually put yourself on the line for? That moment is now. We are going to lose our democracy if we haven’t already. We have no choice, my friends. We have to rise up.”

Rise up!

But again, the question is how? Our marches in the streets are growing larger, but they don’t have a direct impact on the President or the Republicans in Congress. We need Direct Action.

We need to weaponize our smartphones

Start by calling Bank of America and posting on Twitter and Facebook to help activate enough activists worldwide to shut down Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch to force Congress to impeach Mr. Trump, the illegitimate President of the United States.

Protest by phone and we don’t have to lay down our lives to protect Democracy. We don’t have to confront Trump’s Neo Nazi supporters, or be tear gassed and arrested in the streets to force Congress to impeach this traitor in White House. All we have to do is take Direct Action and call Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch to disrupt their nefarious business.

Shut down Bank of America and let Congress do the redemptive suffering.

Help send a powerful message Trump Republicans in Congress: Don’t interfere with the Mueller investigation and impeach Trump now… or be prepared to lose Bank of America and face a stock market crash on Wall Street.

 

The British are coming

 

The Resistance in the U.S. and in the UK can join forces on the phones. In the U.S., we call Bank of America and in the UK they call Merrill Lynch. After all, the Brits have as much reason to fear and hate Mr. Trump as we do, and no one is forgetting that Bank of America’s mortgage fraud caused the Housing Market Crash in 2008.

CALL-IN: In the U.S. call Bank of America and occupy their phones. In the UK call Merrill Lynch. Be civil. Help brown out their communications and put their business on hold. Send a message to Congress. Congress will meet our demands… or Congress could lose Bank of America

SOCIAL NETWORK: Get on your smartphone, go viral, and bring enough protesters to the phones to put Bank of America out of business.

 

OCCUPY THE PHONES IN SOLIDARITY: Call en mass in the U.S. and around the globe. Protesters in the UK can join in calling Merrill Lynch. Together we can put a chokehold on the bank’s communications, and put business on hold. Shut down Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and give Congress a meltdown on Wall Street.

Force Congress to impeach the President… to save Bank of America from going under.

Occupy the Phones. Bury Bank of America alive in calls and impose economic sanctions on Congress. It’s only a matter of time until panic set in and stockholders start dumping their stock and depositors and start a run on the bank.

  1. Congress will leave the Trump-Russia investigation alone.

  2. Congress will impeach Trump and let him try to prove that he did not collude with Russia to win the election.

  3. Congress will acknowledge the fact that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin manipulated the election to help Trump win and the results are therefore invalid. Hillary Clinton is the rightful winner of the presidential race.

Or Congress can risk losing Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and face a melt-down on Wall Street. It’s their choice. Trump wants a war against Americans who hate his lies and will not tolerate his tyranny.

Join forces with Resistance in the UK and launch a Phone Protest aimed at Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch. Calling together, we can sink Trump’s boat.
