In the Name of Humanity – REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America! Protest and Drown Out Anti-Muslim Hatred and Bigotry.
On June 10, fascists will rally in dozens of cities across the country. They claim to oppose Sharia Law, but really they are against all Muslims. They claim that Islam is a “political ideology,” not a religion – therefore, they insist that Muslims don’t deserve legal protection under the Constitutional right to Freedom of Religion. They claim to stand for women and LGBTQ people against Islamic extremists, but this is hypocrisy used to prettify their anti-Muslim agenda. Their lead organizer, Brigitte Gabriel, worked for years for the viciously woman-hating, anti-LGBTQ Christian fascist Pat Robertson, and their speaker’s list is packed with notorious misogynists. Most dangerous of all: they are closely aligned with – and in many cases directly tied to – the fascist Trump/Pence Regime.
Some people say the stakes are too high to speak up. The truth is the stakes are too high NOT to speak up and act. This is a moment in history where your grandchildren will look back and ask you, “What did you do when they came for Muslims?
On June 10, counter the xenophobic hatred and lies, defy intimidation, and drown it out with a sea of opposition declaring: NO! We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America! We must build up the strength to drive the whole fascist Trump/Pence Regime from power. We must do this not just for ourselves, but in the name of humanity.
