Right now, this includes mounting massive resistance, on a scale unseen for decades (if ever), to these horrendous attacks now coming down and the worse ones surely to come. Again, there is a great need, for people to defiantly fight to defeat these spearheads of horror, these attacks against women, this misogynistic assault on the people!


SOBER UP: The Democrats are Part of the Problem, NOT the Solution!

Relying on the Democrats to stop this misogynist assault on the people is worse than a joke.

It is NOT acceptable (or honest) to tell yourself you are "resisting" this fascist assault, if what that "resistance" means is merely voting for, donating to, and mobilizing others to vote for the Democrats--or to just participate in their elections.

The Democratic Party has been part of the problem from Day 1. They gave up the moral high ground to the anti-woman fanatics when they declared that abortion should be "rare." They gave up legal and political ground by confirming fascist judges, by refusing to fight hundreds of abortion restrictions, by re-approving the Hyde Amendment every single year since 1976, and more. They have NEVER officially called out Christian fascism for what it is, they have ALWAYS treated the Republicans as legitimate, even as they have increasingly become a ruling class fascist force, now concentrated in the fascist Trump/Pence regime in power.

The Republican Party Is Fascist
The Democratic Party Is Also a Machine of Massive War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity

To the Democratic Party, preserving the stability of the imperialist system it serves is far more important than even the most basic reforms affecting women. It is a ruling class party--a party that represents and fights for the interests and stability of the American capitalist-imperialist empire--and that has real meaning. For all its very real differences with the Republican fascists, these are differences over how to defend and extend this oppressive system. And, its overriding role is to "corral and domesticate dissent" in the service of that system, as Bob Avakian has put it.

In contrast to both the fascist ruling class party (the Republicans) and their Democratic ruling class rivals, it is necessary for the masses of people to mobilize fierce and growing resistance outside the killing confines of this system's elections and Democratic Party politics. Most fundamentally, it is necessary to do this in a way that contributes to--and while also taking up in its own right--getting organized for an actual revolution!
