Fake news is propaganda

And some other plain speaking in a time of lies

Fake news is propaganda.

The powerful demanding apologies from artists is censorship.

Business dealings while in office are corruption.

Threatening protestors and petitioners is authoritarianism.

Declaring a minority an internal enemy and calling for militarized unity is fascism.

Everything starts with naming these things in public.

Resistance starts with plain speaking.
