Hundreds of marchers, many of whom held up signs that read, “Flush the turd,” gathered in downtown Chicago on Saturday as part of protests against President Trump in 23 cities across the country, organized by the leftwing radicals of Refuse Fascism.
On its website, Refuse Fascism called for “60 Days of Struggle” against “this illegitimate regime”: “By October there needs to be a situation in this country where protests happen day after day. Protests that make visceral the demand that Trump and Pence Must Go.”
“No one can say that this can’t lead to a situation where Trump is driven out before the elections,” the website statement continued, “but short of that, sustained protests in October can and must lead to a situation where on Election Day people don’t just vote against Trump in big numbers but there are mobilized people/forces prepared to oppose – with massive, sustained non-violent protest – the fascist forces we know the Trump regime is planning to unleash.
Speaking at the Los Angeles protest on Saturday, group member Sunsara Taylor called President Trump a “demented bully” and accused him of building concentration camps, brandishing nuclear weapons, and denying science. “All this will get far worse if this fascist regime is allowed a second term,” she added.
