The Situation
Nearly 300,000 people in this country have died from COVID under a science-hating, genocidally racist, lunatic fascist regime, with the virus now out of control and thousands more projected to die before Trump leaves office. The Trump/Pence regime, the Republi-fascists, and their rabid base spread COVID as a matter of “liberty” – the liberty to infect and kill others. Trump recovers from COVID with the best healthcare in the world and then tells his overwhelmingly white followers at a campaign rally in Minnesota that they have “good genes.” The regime’s COVID response concentrates many of the features of this fascist program – white supremacy, xenophobia, Christian fascism, and unhinged conspiracy theories.

Some Questions
How did we get to this point?

Why have we tolerated a regime that has facilitated the deaths of 300,000 people, disproportionately Black and brown people?

Is this deliberate mass murder or “collateral damage” in service of a fascist or fundamentalist worldview?

How do we wage a society-wide struggle for truth, science, and evidence-based epistemology?

RefuseFascism.org is a movement of people coming from diverse perspectives, united in our recognition that the Trump/Pence Regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity and the planet, and that it is our responsibility to drive them from power through non-violent protests that grow every day until our demand is met.

The RNL -- Revolution, Nothing Less -- Show is a multidimensional youtube show about making revolution and emancipating humanity. It's about the world and for a radically different world, bringing alive the need for revolution and the new communism developed by the revolutionary leader Bob Avakian.
