Drive Out the Fascist Trump Regime!

Trump Attacks Syria: Fascism Bludgeons...Democrats Cheer

Trump and the U.S. Don’t Give a Damn About Children

Trump justifies his order to attack Syria: “Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror.” Trump—and the rest of the U.S. rulers—now cares about barbaric murders of kids?

See here some of the horrors that the U.S. has inflicted on innocent children—this is what the U.S. imperialist empire does around the world.

Trump's henchman Sean Spicer said the U.S. and the Nazis have never gassed their "own people."

It is NOT OK to use nerve gas against "other" people! American lives are not more valuable than other people's lives.

And this Holocaust-denying fascist was lying. The U.S. has used chemical (and biological) weapons around the world, going back to World War 1. This slide show includes a few examples.

This fascist regime has to be driven out before it locks down the reins of power.

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
