Journalists have been brave this election season and on into the beginnings of Trump’s reign, breaking all kinds of stories about what a cretinous man he is and just how much we really need to resist him in many different ways. This bravery must continue on. It must not be threatened.
In fact, some of the top new journalists have been cropping up directly in response to Trump. For example, pieces like this have already been getting noticed and going viral and getting acclaim from top sources, even though they are from journalists who used to be not well-known. There’s no better time to support indie leftist journalists like this one.
But the reporter David Fahrenthold who broke the story of Trump’s “Access Hollywood” tape that earned him the nickname of “President Pussygrabber” writes for Washington Post. And he has been getting horrible threats ever since, and Trump supporters are getting deranged.
One official even made the following terrifying recommendation: “‘Your cars are parked too far away for a car bomb,’ she said, looking out the front windows at the street. ‘They’ll probably cut your brake lines.’ She recommended having a car patrol the neighborhood. She recommended a safe room.” Yikes.
This is proof if ever there was any that we can make a difference in these scary, critical times! That’s right, resistance is not futile and it can help us to win even when we are afraid otherwise.
