Dear local Democrats, progressives, and others interested:
As an untraditional politician, Mr. Trump does not even bother with the usual hypocrisies. He doesn’t try to sound conciliatory, or make the many Americans on his personal hit list feel even a tad better about his nefarious plans, or reassure foreign countries that he knows what he is doing in his new job.
So, dispensing with the usual hypocrisies ourselves, and abandoning the sort of hope for reasonableness we may have had in 2001 at the beginning of the Bush administration, I think we can feel free to say without hesitation that we don’t like what we see right now on day 1.
Many of you may be protesting in the nation’s capital tomorrow Saturday, or other locations like Philadelphia or Wilmington.
Or if you aren’t going that far, please be aware of this local opportunity to show solidarity with the Women’s March:
Saturday Jan. 21, noon in front of the court house at High and Market Sts., 2 N. High St., West Chester: a gathering in solidarity with Women’s March in Washington. Bring signs or pussy hats. No program, just be there.
There’s a lot to be done. Let’s be there, wherever there is: rallying, social media, writing letters to editors, pressing legislators, talking to neighbors, being or supporting future candidates for office….
Best wishes to all,
Nathaniel Smith – Chester County Democratic Committee
