Outrage is appropriate

Outrage is appropriate

Sending the military to teargas peaceful protestors exercising their constitutional rights for a specious photo opp — holding up “a” bible like a cudgel in front of a church that did not invite him — is the act of a tyrant. As the podcast Pod Save America put it, “Trump is one part dictator, two parts dips**t.”

He’s a dangerous dips**t, and we cannot let fascist acts become normalized. Be outraged. Speak up. Act.

We must rid ourselves of this cancerous lunatic.
