Remembering Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. for a better day

MLK had a vision of what we can be as a democracy. If we lose that democracy we lose everything.

Saturday in The Park

Last week I posted photos of a chill afternoon at San Francisco’s Alamo Square Park.

This week Alamo Square Park played host to a different sort of event:

“Counter-protesters converged on San Francisco’s Alamo Square Saturday afternoon even after local officials had called off a planned and permit-granted protest by right-wing group Patriot Prayer the day before.”

Newsweek

I love San Francisco.

We like to start our anti-fascist marches with a group hug:

The Speaker: “I want you to go right up to that person and give that person a big ass hug!”

I couldn’t get into Alamo Square Park; it was packed and marchers were still gathering.

A young woman on the curb with a sign in her lap:

Shame on Nazis

The next time a Trump drone says ‘antifa thug’ send out this picture:

Unite against racism:

Having your name in the same story with ‘FBI Investigates’ is bad

Cartoon of an elephant with Trump seated on it. Trump is tossing a bomb and the elephant wears a saddle that reads the GOP: party of John Wilkes Booth

Had Trump not won the White House the gravity of the attack against the United States might have gone unexposed. Surely the Kremlin plan was to discredit a Clinton Presidency as soon as she entered office.

The compromised House GOP who openly refuses to investigate Trump would be calling for impeachment.

You can be damned sure these ruthless GOP partisans would block a Clinton SCOTUS nominee and launch another disinformation campaign to rationalize it:

We are about to expose a shockingly open international conspiracy to destroy the NATO Alliance.

The FBI is investigating the Trump Administration for collusion with the Russian government.; a conspiracy of ruthless oligarchs who brazenly spit in the face of Democracy.

As the GOP said about Hillary and her email in 2016: “Having your name in the same story with “FBI Investigates” is bad!”
