No Ban! No Wall!
Resist the Supreme Court’s Reinstatement of Sections of Trump’s Muslim Ban

July 1, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper |


The Supreme Court ruling Monday reinstating significant sections of the Trump/Pence regime’s Muslim Ban 2.0 represented a serious escalation of a war on Muslims. This ban had been halted by several federal courts. One lower court ruled the ban “drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.”

And the Supreme Court will consider reinstating the entire ban in the fall, something three of the nine “justices” were ready to do right now. In addition, the Trump/Pence regime has demonstrated contempt for legal challenges and court rulings, and has found ways to aggressively implement the Muslim ban already.

By upholding sections of the ban on refugees, visitors, and immigrants from six predominantly Muslim countries without “bona fide relationships” to people in this country (whatever that might mean), the highest court in the U.S. put a stamp of approval on dehumanizing and terrorizing Muslims in this country, and around the world. With draconian implications. The ruling intensifies a situation where any Muslim in this country must fear legal persecution or unofficial violence and terror or murder. It ratchets up the hellish conflict between Western imperialism and fundamentalist Islamic Jihad. And, to the extent this goes down without outrage and protest, the Court ruling promotes a toxic climate in society, where people stand aside while their neighbors are rounded uppretending they don’t see. That dynamic led to the Holocaust in Germany. This Muslim ban must be opposed in the interests of humanity.

The Trump/Pence regime is a product of this system. In "The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy...And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer" and "The Fascists and the Destruction of the 'Weimar Republic'... And What Replaces It," Bob Avakian demonstrates convincingly how the workings of this system paved the way for this regime and its crimes; why this system requires something of this order to keep going; and why it must be overthrown.
