First they came for the Muslims… then the Mexicans, then the Jews…

Trump Refuses to Denounce Neo-Nazi “Fans” (who attacked a Jewish reporter for writing a not-even-that-bad profile of Melania)

Well, this is just suuuuper cool. I’m not scared, or even angry, but it’s a solid reminder that “traditional values” [White Christian Cishet Male Supremacy] have come for me and my people before, and absolutely would happily come for me again today.

And I bet that’s actually true for most of you too, whether you know it or not. So that’s why I rant all the time. When, today, they come for the marginalized, the nonconformists, the vulnerable, and the oppressed, you can be damn sure I’m going to speak up about it. Because this Media Matters roundup reminds us exactly what happens when you let evil go unchecked and uncorrected: gleeful breeding of more evil.
