What is “fascism” and “authoritarianism”?
Increasingly, it is defending the Constitution from an all out assault by the political establishment which has gone woke and is damning and trampling on the constitutional rights of millions of people in the name of fighting systematic racism and “white supremacy.” It is easy to forget now but much of our activism in 2017 including Auburn and Charlottesville was focused on defending civil liberties. It was the other side which was opposed to our First Amendment rights of free speech.
Why stop at the Second Amendment? Isn’t the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the whole system also racist? Don’t we have to tear the whole system down to fight systematic racism?
Note: The ACLU is one of the clearest examples of the shift from liberalism to woke progressivism that has taken place over the last five years.
