#HolocaustRemembranceDay

it is #HolocaustRemembranceDay.

it didn’t happen overnight. it began with lies, propaganda, hateful rhetoric, public discrimination born out of anti-Semitism, racism, and xenophobia. it was an outcome of White Supremacist cult.

sound familiar from recent memory of Confederate flags flying at the Capital insurrectionist siege, of a man wearing a “Camp Auschwitz” or another man wearing a shirt with “6MWE” on it which is an abbreviation of “6 Million Wasn’t Enough”? or perhaps another not too distant memory of torch carrying White Supremacists chanting “Jews will not replace us” in Charlottesville? in both cases Donald Trump gave a nod of approval with statements “there are good people on both sides” and “We love you. You’re very special.”

these moments are lines in the sand. this really isn’t that difficult. to continue to be loyal to Trump and the movement that took hold of him and elevated him to figurehead, to leader, is to be on the wrong side of history. it’s siding with White Supremacy, it’s siding with anti-Semitism. those who have supported Trump and are moved by this and don’t want to be aligned with such associations, should abandon their support and abandon such a path. it only leads to destruction and suffering.

#NeverForget 🙏🏻
