Resisting the Trumpublican Shock Doctrine Blitzkrieg / Miles Mogulescu – Common Dreams

 Brilliant piece from writer Miles Mogulescu in which he makes this powerful observation:

The Trumpublicans are intent on manipulating the shock of Donald Trump’s victory  to roll back much of the New Deal and Great Society; ram through unvetted Cabinet appointments intent on undermining the legal mandate of the very Departments they are charged with leading; legitimize unprecedented conflicts of interest; and intimidate opponents, professional civil servants, and the press, in a rapid Blitzkrieg, before the opposition even knows what hit them.

And concludes with these compelling words :

It’s easy to feel hopeless in the face of the Trumpublican Shock Doctrine. But falling into despair and inaction is simply unacceptable.

If the millions of citizens who care about the future resist and fight back, the Trumpublican Blitzkreig can be defeated. The future of the nation and the planet is in our hands.

And there you have it – a succinct description of where we are at and where we need to go and what we need to do as the citizens of this great nation who are opposed to Trump. We need to resist, resist, resist in the face of a fearful and powerful enemy and not be discouraged, even as we will not win every battle. We have to believe that time and history are on our side and that we will ultimately be victorious. Negativity and a sense of defeat are not acceptable.
