Great stuff; thanks to Jason Rylander for these photos from near the Old Post Office, now sullied by the Trump name on it, and the thousands of people exercising their fundamental American right to peacefully protest injustice.

    During WW II, German cleric Martin Niemoeller wrote:

    “In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
    Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

    Martin Niemoeller(1892-1984)

    Today, they are coming for the Muslims.

    Only this time the sonsofbitches will not go another step.

    NOT. ONE. MORE. STEP. NOT TODAY. NOT. EVER.

    Republican Gubernatorial Candidates Back Trump’s Muslim Ban

    Gubernatorial Candidates Ed Gillespie, Corey Stewart, and Frank Wagner have all come out in support of Donald Trump’s un-American and discriminatory executive order that has prompted mass protests across the country.

    “By supporting this ban, by backing an order that has resulted in chaos, confusion and that will have zero effect in protecting us, Ed Gillespie, Corey Stewart, and Frank Wagner proved that they are willing to trample on people’s civil rights, support institutionalized xenophobia, and put our national security at risk. That’s not leadership and we deserve better than Republicans who seek to impose Trump’s dangerous, shortsighted, and misguided policies on Virginians and all Americans.” – Susan Swecker, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Virginia

    We can protect our people while preserving our values. This policy does neither.

    Republican AG Candidates Silent on Muslim Ban

    Republicans vying to be Virginia’s top lawyer are conspicuously silent on the most pressing and impactful legal issue facing the country: Donald Trump’s discriminatory executive action.

    If John Adams and Chuck Smith want to be the Commonwealth’s top lawyer, they need to let Virginians know if they stand on the side of civil liberties and American values, or if they support a xenophobic and discriminatory action.

    “John Adams and Chuck Smith need to let Virginians know where they stand on Donald Trump’s discriminatory and un-American executive order if they want to be Virginia’s Attorney General. This is the most pressing legal issue facing the country, and the position of Attorney General requires leadership. It’s time for John Adams and Chuck Smith to show Virginians what kind of leaders they truly are.” – Emily Bolton, Communications Director of the Democratic Party of Virginia
