What is happening?
Unidentified and uninvited federal troops are, apparently without warrants, harassing, beating, and detaining nonviolent protestors on the streets of Portland.
Trump, abetted by fringe reactionaries like Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Trump Attorney Bill Barr and Homeland Security Chad Wolf and Ken Cuccinelli, are also threatening to take their black shirt squads to other cities led by Democrats (like Chicago or Milwaukee.)
The Lincoln Project ad rightly depicts these actions as “a President out of control” who will resort to any totalitarian measures to stay in power.
“This is how it starts and this is how freedom dies,” the narrator accurately states.
The narrator then calls everyone to action, stating:
“Unless we stand up. Unless we speak out. Unless we demand justice. Register and vote November 3 because if we don’t, we know how it ends.”
