Protest 9/5:
Call for the Removal of Trump / Pence Regime in the Path to Revolution!

From a member of the Revolution Club



Editors’ Note: Following are edited excerpts from social media exchanges on various progressive sites.


Trump is a fascist. Once fascism fully consolidates its hold over America, it will be much harder to make revolution. That's why one of our most urgent goals as communists in America should be to call for the removal of the Trump/Pence regime! NATIONWIDE PROTEST SEPT. 5


  • Why protest specifically against Trump when all the U.S. presidents represent the same Imperialist-Capitalist system?
    • Trump's regime represents a departure from the typical past imperialist U.S. president, a qualitatively different form of rule, based on brutal repression and violation of what are supposed to be the most basic rights.
  • Why do you call this regime fascist? Trump is not a fascist?

Actual lines are being drawn, with catastrophic consequences for all of humanity. If we lose the right to protest—through legal or extra-legal means—all bets are off. Fascism is not just the worst of a pendulum swing. It is a qualitative change in how society is governed. Dissent is piece by piece criminalized. The truth is bludgeoned. Group after group is demonized and targeted along a trajectory that leads to real horrors. All this has been happening for more than three years, yet with concentration camps at the border, Trump acquitted in a sham impeachment trial, and an executive order to protect monuments while First Amendment rights are criminalized with actual jail time, too many still want to bask in the comfortable delusions that this is not really happening. This is fascism. It is happening, and time is running out to stop it.

  • Are you endorsing Biden?
    • The question is not whether Biden and the Democrats represent something “good,” or whether, in fundamental terms, the Democrats are “better” than the Republicans. Both of these parties are ruling class political parties, and none of their candidates represent anything “good” in the most basic sense. Biden is not “better” than Trump, in any meaningful way—except that he is not Trump and is not part of the move to consolidate and enforce fascist rule, with everything that means.
  • How does this fit in with revolution?
    • If this regime is able to further consolidate its power, it will result in a devastating setback for any attempt to resist injustice and oppression, and will very likely lead to the brutal repression, and even annihilation, of defenders of democratic rights and proponents of any meaningful progressive reforms, as well as any organized forces fighting for fundamental revolutionary change. Driving out Trump and making revolution are not mutually exclusive.
  • I'm still not convinced Trump is a fascist and that as a revolutionary communist in America, that this is a vital step in making revolution.

We need to be out in the streets and fighting this. Making revolution under a non-fascist regime is already enormously difficult, and will become much harder if Trump is allowed to consolidate his hold. Get out in the streets and make your voice heard!

Now at this late and crucial hour....(BA)
