ACLU Receives $10M In Donations, And 150,000 New Members, Since Yesterday!

article via Daily Kos:

Iím old enough to remember the protests of the 60ís. Thereís a couple of big differences this time. As bad as Nixon was, Trump makes Nixon look like George Washington. We knew we could impeach Nixon if we found enough evidence, and because the Democrats would do the right thing. Every indication is the fascist GOP is perfectly willing to dump our democracy for more power and a tax cut. The other difference is, in the 60ís it was mostly the youth who were fighting for their future. Today, itís still seems like itís mostly the people from the 60ís, but now a whole new generation is waking up and starting to join in the fight to save our democracy their future! We really are stronger together.

The response to the open display of fascism has been remarkable!

4. Excellent. There are so many organizations that need our support.

Which is why the Rs are trying to bankrupt us.
