Hundreds of US groups join forces to stand against dangerous tide of hatred, violence

Hundreds of U.S. Groups Join Forces to Stand Against 'Dangerous Tide of Hatred, Violence' | Common Dreams | Breaking News & Views for the Progressive Community

It is incumbent on every public figure, elected politician, and media outlet to stand up against the "dangerous tide of hatred, violence, and suspicion" taking hold in the United States, over 700 prominent organizations and people declared in a full-page ad in Thursday's New York Times.

"We grieve the many lives that have been lost or painfully transformed in recent weeks through extreme acts of violence. And we are appalled by the surge of divisive rhetoric that sows the seeds of more violence to come," reads the ad, which was organized by the National Domestic Workers Alliance, United We Dream, Center for Community Change, Demos, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Arab-American Association of New York, MPower Change, SEIU, Color of Change, and MoveOn.org.

Signatories warn that, in particular, violence is aimed at "Arab and Muslim Americans, women and the places we seek health care, Black people, immigrants and refugees, or people just going about their daily lives."

"We call upon our politicians, leaders and the media to stop the spread of hate and division," the statement declares. "And we pledge to stand with any community that is targeted by hateful rhetoric and violence."

The ad marks the launch of campaign against racism, bigotry, and violence, and many are expressing support on social media using the hashtag #WeAreBetterThanThis.
Americans who believe in our government, constitution and the rights of its citizens and members of the world will NOT go by quietly while the radicalized imbeciles of this nation call for their hatred to be heeded.
Thanks from tristanrobin, Camelot, coke and 2 others

Trump is the current standard bearer of the Republican Party. He is merely saying the outlandish things that FOX, Limbaugh, Beck and the other Right wing carnival barkers in their media say. Trump represents the "unvarnished" truth of the Right wing in this country that we on the Left have been alleging for years.

Whatever it is, it scares the GOP, too.

GOP preparing for contested convention

Republican officials and leading figures in the party’s establishment are preparing for the possibility of a brokered convention as businessman Donald Trump continues to sit atop the polls in the GOP presidential race.

More than 20 of them convened Monday near the Capitol for a dinner held by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, and the prospect of Trump nearing next year’s nominating convention in Cleveland with a significant number of delegates dominated the discussion, according to five people familiar with the meeting.

Weighing in on that scenario as Priebus and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) listened, several longtime Republican power brokers argued that if the controversial billionaire storms through the primaries, the party’s establishment must lay the groundwork for a floor fight in which the GOP’s mainstream wing could coalesce around an alternative, the people said.

The development represents a major shift for veteran Republican strategists, who until this month had spoken of a brokered convention only in the most hypothetical terms — and had tried to encourage a drama-free nomination by limiting debates and setting an earlier convention date.

According to a buddy, this is the whole RNC establishment ganging up on him.

Both Parties are afraid of him. And they should be. The Federal government yields far too much power. The Supreme Court has overstepped it's Constitutional authority. The Peoples-Representation no longer exists. State's rights no longer exist. Constitutional restraints are passé, and only exist when it's to the benefit of the Federal government. The winds of change are coming and it's scaring the hell out of the Federal government.
