Some historians say that when Lincoln was building his administration he intentionally created a “team of rivals,” i.e. people who disagreed on many fundamental issues. This was an intentional move on his part, as it meant that they would have to work to reach interesting compromises.
Well Trump on the other hand has created a Team of Deplorables, I think it’s safe to say. And that’s why it is important for anyone with a conscience and concern for this country to unite against him, and indeed to organize to do so! This viral article gives progressives a good case for why we can be hopeful that we will resist Trump’s agenda.
And Carl Paladino is a Trump campaign official who said he wished for “Michelle Obama. I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla.” That was after saying “Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford [sic]. He dies before his trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to Valerie Jarret [sic], who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a Jihady [sic] cell mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her.”
Yikes. And now “The Buffalo School Board voted 6 to 2 on Thursday to call on the state education commissioner to remove Carl P. Paladino from office, a decision made amid the rallying cry of thousands of people outraged by controversial remarks he made about President Barack Obama and the first lady.”
Good! Action against these goons is exactly what we need. Will you take a grassroots call of action too?
