"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    I am less worried about President Topxic Dump’s ties to Russia than I am about him acting like a Russian Oligarch. Criminalizing dissent does not bode well for Democracy

    “Indivisible groups organized marches and rallies to demand an independent commission to investigate Donald Trump‘s connections to Russia.”

    Gasp, not “connections!” Why ask for an independent commission at all? Sentence first — verdict afterwards!

    Here’s an idea, how about an independent commission to investigate ties to Saudi Arabia or Israel? Why don’t Democrats talk about those connections I wonder?
