During the overnight Senate session, Senator Ben Sasse explained: “Our kids need to know that this isn’t what America is.” This is exactly wrong. Our kids need to be warned that this is what any country can become if its citizens and leaders cower. Everywhere it has ever happened, citizens were sure “it could never happen here.” Democracy is not a gift. It’s a job. And so is calling out the White Supremacy and racism that has always been at the heart of Trumpism, which played out again as antisemitic slogans and Confederate Flags breached the U.S. Capitol building. And Trump’s flashing of the White Supremacy symbol is no mistake. The people in that movement believe they have Trump’s support. Why don’t we believe it? From birtherism, to very fine people, to these three images from yesterday, it’s always been the same story.
