A 30-Second SOS from the USA

This was the headline last night:

I was very proud of the staff of this park, until I found out this isn’t what happened and that park officials didn’t, in fact, do this at all.

The article has now been changed to read:

Those tweets “were posted by a former employee who was not currently authorized to use the park’s account,” said the official. “The park was not told to remove the tweets but chose to do so when they realized that their account had been compromised.

Well, it was nice to think, for a while, that they resisted.

It’d be even nicer to believe that more people in the government — from the highest levels to the lowest — would resist what is happening in this country. It hasn’t happened, yet, not beyond halfhearted shams held in front of TV cameras or press interviews given in metaphorical echo chambers where their own shouts won’t be heard by anyone but themselves?

Where are the government leaders, officials, and employees saying, “We will not stand idly by and watch our country be dismantled and destroyed? When did complicit tacit silence and “looking good” surpass ethics, morals, and standing up for what’s RIGHT?

Where were they in the 1930's during Hitler’s rise to power?

Those in a position to do the most, right now, to PREVENT what’s coming are silence. We could sure use those voices — combined with actual ACTION — right now.

Where are you, those who value country, the people, and the welfare of the whole before yourselves? WHERE ARE YOU?
