Shouldn't the fascists be the Resistance? Why are we who love democracy the Resistance?

An article linked here a few days back got me thinking. Maybe I was wrong thinking before.

Undeniable there are major forces that are relentlessly on the side of democracy and therefor, us.

The relentless march of demographics forced the hand of Rs in Texas to create even more anti-democratic congressional districts, made possible by the gutting of the voting rights act. That can be fixed and all fascist election manipulations. The filibuster is white power baked in by tradition.

Examples, the relentless march of facts is on our side, don’t need fixing, needs more time.

The relentless march of Science, needs no fixing cause it’s does not take sides.

The world is marching towards democracy, not fascism, in my eyes.

The world is not going to move towards fascism and neither is America, it’s not a logical system, except in preservation of the traditions of white power baked into the legal, electoral and legislative systems by various and sundry means, protected by written law and unwritten, white created… tradition?

The relentless march of so many forces totally beyond the control of, to me, the real white power in America, the lawmaking places and court places. The Proud Boys are peashooters in comparison.

My personal getting around to thinking…why are we the Resistance when it is us they fear?

Why when all the relentless forces are allied with us in war, shouldn’t they be the Resistance?
