Trump San Diego

By OB Rag and San Diego Free Press Editors

We anticipate that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will visit San Diego during the California presidential primary campaign.

We at the OB Rag and San Diego Free Press will join with other San Diegans during his campaign stops in our city in expressing our adamant opposition to the racist, xenophobic and misogynist policies espoused by Trump.

And we join in solidarity with those whom Trump has targeted:

  • Mexicans
  • Muslims
  • Women
  • Journalists
  • Protesters
  • LGBTQ community

We believe Trump’s policies are a direct and dangerous threat to what’s left of American democracy. Those of us who believe Trump represents a potential type of American fascism believe that if he is able to assume the mantle of government it will be too late for opponents to express dissent and too late for American freedom.

Upon Trump’s arrival in San Diego, we want to join with others protesting his policies and we will support any and all of those who express their opposition through various forms of non-violent and civil-disobedient direct actions.

These are dangerous and desperate times. The future of American democracy is at stake. Our own future and the future of our children are at stake.

There is no more higher calling now than for San Diegans of every political stripe to show our strong opposition to Donald Trump with actions of conscience.

Please send information about your direct action plans to us c/o the San Diego Free Press – contact@sandiegofreepress.org

….”we’re seeing the emergence of a new debate where the populist left and right are on the same side:

Both are against the rich to spend as much as they want corrupting our democracy.

Both are against crony capitalism.

Both are against corporate welfare.

Both are against another Wall Street bailout.

Both want to stop subsidizing Big Agriculture, Big Oil, and the pharmaceutical industry.

Both want to close the tax loophole for hedge fund partners.

Both want to ban inside trading on Wall Street.

Both want to stop CEOs from pumping up share prices with stock buy-backs … and then cashing in their stock options.

Both want to stop tax deductions of CEO pay over $1 million.

Both want to get big money out of politics, reverse Citizens United, and restore our democracy,

If we join together, we can make these things happen.”

think about it….
