We are now entering the “Trumperium,” a sinister, unethical and amoral wasteland, where a kleptocrat and his cronies from around the world, will be allowed to cavort among the ruins of every value that progressive politics have always held dear.
The “upside” of all of this, if you could call it that, the “lemonade from lemons,” is that progressive Americans now have a chance facing the Trumperium to create a vibrant, “take it to the streets” left like the one that accompanied Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and resisted the war in Vietnam, or like the one that energized Roosevelt’s New Deal.
The question being, who are going to be the “Freedom Riders,” or the Panthers? Who is going to write and sing the fighting songs, now that Bob Dylan has won the Nobel Prize? What will the be the “We Shall Overcome” of the anti-Trumperium underground?
