Let’s make sure this is straight.
Bigots and fascists and narcissists all use your politeness against you.
They use your desire for “peace” and “not rocking the boat” to get their way.
They threaten chaos and violence when they don’t get their way.
Being quiet, hoping it all dies down, not rocking the boat gives them what they want.
The job of resisting bigots and fascists and narcissists is up to you.
You – yes you – must condemn these things.
Otherwise, you are on the side of the bullies.
Don’t worry about if this is “america”.
Worry about whether or not this is you.
