We are dangerously close to this happening

What we fought against in WWII.
Replace the word "Jews" with "Latin Americans"

Saw this at the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial in Boise, ID.

1. God forbid,

Trump gets re-elected.

I'm fearful for all, but I want my Puerto Rican son-in-law near us old white people.

4. Seen recently;

America is where Germany was in 1933, where 1 third of the population hates and wants to do away with another third while the last third watches.

5. Just learned about this on Friday, relating to the census question about citizenship.

In 1939, the Third Reich ordered a census taken and it included "religion". The census was then used its data to be organized on a Hollerith machine (developed by IBM) and of course, the Nazis knew where every single Jew lived.

One can't be blind or oblivious to the parallels today.

Will be happy to do my part to help folks, but will first take to the streets locked arm in arm, and in love and non-violently, to do what I can to prevent this.

18. I just thought... yeah, I'd hide Latinx's from American nazis...

 

Then I realized there's a man nearby from Texas I don't trust. Even his wife, while more friendly, has a racist touch. The man is really strange, socially creepy and just several doors down from us. Since it's a low density area he'd easily observe a family coming and going... My guests would have to be brought in at 3am and hidden, just like Anne Frank.

I could easily imagine that man turning anybody in to a fascist authority.

The potential is very real. Those people are being turned towards their reptile brains little by little. There's dopamine hits for every eruption of hatred.

10. I remember when movies depicted Nazis as ignoring the Geneva convention

And always asking "Your papers please".

Sadly we're doing the same thing.

12. Tragically True

So cruel so sad to see this happening here and about a third of us alright with it. Treating human beings like animals.

I hope we send Twitler packing and demote McConnell in 2020. But my guess is that even if he is trounced Trump will have to be physically removed.....but once he is he will be locked up.

14. The Republicans didn't forget history

they are embracing it. To them fascism is a good thing. As long as they are the ones running the show.

All the kids learn all about Anne Frank's life there. No one is allowed to forget here.

17. As a Latin American, I have to say this...

 

It doesn't matter if the government is Republican or Democrat. Latin Americans are always viewed as second-class citizens, their political decisions are disrespected, their internal affairs are meddled by whoever is in the White House.

As long as Democrats do not take solid steps to break with the imperalist foreign policy of the United States and their sense of ownership over Latin America, it doesn't matter that much if the American president is Republican or Democrat. Both parties have been a disgrace to Latin America.

And refusing to handle this and discuss this without hysteria, name-calling, childish behavior, authoritarian posture is part of the disconnection between Democrats and their base.

20. Until we have the dialog about how this nation was founded on

slavery and on genocide, we won't become everything we can be. That said, if you despise Democrats as much as you despise Republicans, then why are you here?

21. The answer about "despising" when no such word came out of my mouth...

 

... is precisely what I see as the problem here.

I'm here because I believe the Democrats VOTERS are the most reasonable in the US. But if you treat your party as a inquestionable religion, that's halfway to explain why Trump won and you never saw it coming.

22. Yeah right, I know.

If there were only some Constitutional means to draw attention to the illegality of this administration.

Some political, not criminal, process for calling this all to the attention of the American public.

Oh well, I guess such a process does not exist. We will all just have to succumb to the whims of our opposition. They win!
