New congressman Jamie Raskin shows exactly the right attitude Democrats need for taking on Trump

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/12/1/1606121/-New-congressman-Jamie-Raskin-shows-exactly-the-right-attitude-Democrats-need-for-taking-on-Trump

He has the right attitude about how Democrats need to fight, and hot DAMN did he ever put that on display at a rally Wednesday night in the D.C. suburbs:

“They can make a white supremacist the chief strategist for the White House,” he said, invoking Steve Bannon. “They can make an anti-public school activist [Betsy DeVos] the secretary of education. They can make Jeff Sessions the attorney general of the United States of America, but my friends, we are still here.”

“They can put Goldman Sachs back in charge of the Treasure Department, but we are still here. They can try to dismantle the EPA, but we are still here. They can put a fox in charge of every hen house—they can put the Joker, the Riddler, and the Penguin in charge of Gotham City—but we are still here, and we’re not going anywhere.” [...]

Raskin had a bit more to say about Bannon. “We’re not letting any prepped-out Harvard Business School neo-Nazi strategize us into becoming Germany 1933,” he vowed, “and we will not let a cabinet of robber barons and white nationalists destroy everything the civilizing movements of the last century created.”

5. As long as the Dems show fight, we'll have their backs. but the minute they back down, they will

be looking over their shoulders and seeing no one there.

7. I feel this situation is different than anything we have seen.

I know this is depressing as hell, but I'm wondering, if ordered, will our military refuse to turn on us, the citizenry? I'm sorry, but this thought has been in my mind. Along with so many of course.

I don't know, these are such scary times that some horrible things float around in my mind.

11. I remember when that happened PearliePoo2.

That tragedy has been going through my mind too and wondering if it could happen all across the country. This has really been a strain on our minds right now. Thanks for posting.

12. That is depressing

but a real concern you only have to look at Standing rock to see how it all could go down. Yep I am very worried for so many of us.
