It’s been over two years now of “shock and awe” tactics aimed at destroying the foundations of American democracy. Equivocating is not an option. Mincing words is not an option. It’s hard to stay focused as each new atrocity becomes normalized. So here is my list, Arya Stark style, of what I believe is most important:
- Climate change, because There Is No Planet B
- Gun violence, we should Protect Kids, Not Guns
- Police brutality: Black Lives Matter
- Women’s rights: Abortion Is A Civil Right
- Immigration and asylum: Abolish ICE
Unlike Joe Biden, I see no middle ground on these issues, not anymore. There is right and there is wrong. I refuse to compromise with monsters.
