Donald Trump Will Lead the US Empire – The Fight Against All He Represents Begins Today

Donald Trump Will Lead the US Empire –
The Fight Against All He Represents Begins Today

Donald Trump - an ugly fascist who campaigned on promises to build a wall, deport millions of immigrants and ban Muslims from entering the US; who bragged about sexually assaulting women and more – will be the next president of the US. Everybody who opposes injustice has reason to be very concerned for the future of humanity. This concern has already erupted in angry protests, and it needs to move people to waging massive resistance to everything Trump stands for. This is not a time for conciliation or retreat; it's not a time for despair. It's a time for struggle; a time for courage.

Let's be clear. Trump, even more than his predecessors, is a grotesque representative of capitalist/imperialist America. From its birth in slavery and genocide, this system has always been a nightmare for countless millions around the world and this country. The horrors of life under this system are rooted in the very way this system operates. From the beginning this system treated Trump – the fascist blowhard - as a legitimate candidate to head the U.S. Empire. That underlines the illegitimacy of the whole damn system. The ugly infighting in the ruling class this campaign laid bare exposes a system in crisis.

A Trump presidency points to even more horrific crimes being perpetrated against humanity. Massive resistance is needed to all he represents right now. But this resistance must NOT be aimed at returning to what has been, continuing the same brutal system, its crimes and horrors.

What's necessary and possible is a totally different world for people to live in. Doing this will take revolution, nothing less. We in the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) are organizing right now for an actual revolution, one that overthrows this system and replaces it with a far better one. We have the leadership needed to make this revolution in Bob Avakian, the leader of the RCP. We have a blueprint for the new society this revolution can create in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America. And we have the strategy for making revolution in a country like this one, a strategy that is laid out in the pamphlet, “How We Can Win.

This is a time for resisting the horrors of this system, a time for taking advantage of the crisis of this system, a time to be in the streets. And it's a time for everyone who hates and wants to end the horrors people face in this country and around the world to get into the revolution.
