The failure to speak let alone act is, itself, a crime against humanity. This problem is not hidden. It can happen only with silent acquiescence of the majority that allows a criminal minority to actively support genocide and horrible crimes against innocent people.

We are seeing this daily. I don’t know anyone who isn’t appalled at what is being done to brutalize and punish political and climate change refugees. The open plan to destroy families and children in the name of greed or, worse, simply to agitate racists and haters to take control of the country will, in the end, destroy this country.

That acquiescence is visible here. They need more proof. Where’s the proof? Right in front of your eyes. Read actual news. Better yet, check the leading English language news media on this planet. They are appalled and reporting in depth on this every week and now almost every day.

The fascists are winning and that always leads to disaster. That is why there are strong laws against this kind of thing in Germany.

People do not want to deal with Trumpist goons so they stay quiet. Someone else will fix this. Fateful words.
