By San Diego Free Press and OB Rag Editors
We anticipate that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will visit San Diego during the California presidential primary campaign.
We at the San Diego Free Press and OB Rag will join with other San Diegans during his campaign stops in our city in expressing our adamant opposition to the racist, xenophobic and misogynist policies espoused by Trump.
And we join in solidarity with those whom Trump has targeted:
- LGBTQ community
We believe Trump’s policies are a direct and dangerous threat to what’s left of American democracy. Those of us who believe Trump represents a potential type of American fascism believe that if he is able to assume the mantle of government it will be too late for opponents to express dissent and too late for American freedom.
Upon Trump’s arrival in San Diego, we want to join with others protesting his policies and we will support any and all of those who express their opposition through various forms of non-violent and civil-disobedient direct actions.
These are dangerous and desperate times. The future of American democracy is at stake. Our own future and the future of our children are at stake.
There is no more higher calling now than for San Diegans of every political stripe to show our strong opposition to Donald Trump with actions of conscience.
