People Keep Putting Hidden Anti-Trump Messages in Their Resignation Letters—Here’s Why
Emily O'Neill

It is easy to speak truth to power. (Why would you suggest otherwise?) It is also easy to speak lies to power. Condoning someone’s right to speak is as American as it gets. Condemning violence forced against free speech should be a reflex in any democracy, and especially in the US. To those Anti-F(irst)A(mendment) folks who brought violence to Charlottesville racism was an after thought. The same violence has been directed at everything from baseball to apple pie. They have shown in the streets of major cities throughout the country that everything gives cause to assault life, limb, and property. Making heroes out of those who were stopped from disrespecting their communities doesn’t sell without the lie that they are examples of an unbalanced playing field. Trump spoke out against violence on all sides. Anti-FA is primarily made up of young people insecure of their futures in a system where everyone is needed to contribute and, at least, carry their own weight. For them to create a system where everybody is obligated to secure their fortune because it is their right would be nice for them but slavery for everybody else. Trump specifically spoke out against the KKK’s and White-Supremacist’s racism. The truth is that Trump didn’t also speak specifically against Anti-FA, which is a problem throughout the country.
