    “Trump has used his time in the White House far more effectively than anyone could have imagined.
    He ignored the dead and dying in Puerto Rico and brutalized the children at the border. He ignored the dead and dying in the pandemic and wants to brutalize the protesters in our cities.
    In five months, the good people can end both his hateful words and their own appalling silence.”

    Rev Mariann Budde:
    “I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call,
    that they would be clearing [the area] with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop.”
    Her outrage (paraphrased by Maddow) about the way Trump “clothed himself in the symbols of a religious tradition…to enhance his own authority…to assume the power and the weight of those symbols to try to aggrandize his own political power and standing.”

      Blessed are the peace makers.
      Bishop Michael Curry:
      “I believe that in the end, if people of good will and human decency come together and say
      “we’re going to be a people of love, we’re going to be a people of compassion, we’re going to be a people worthy of the name American,” and then we will be a shining city upon a hill.
      If we the majority, sometimes the silent majority, will stand up, speak up, and join hands together across racial differences, across religious, across sexual orientation, across all of our differences, join hands as brothers and sisters and siblings. And let us stand up and make this nation a loving, decent, freedom reigning nation. And then there will be peace on our streets.”

      “Episcopal bishop cites Christian gospel in criticism of Trump”
      “The Most Rev. Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, talks with Rachel Maddow about Donald Trump’s use of St. John’s Episcopal Church and a Bible as props for a publicity stunt,
      and where Americans can find hope in these troubled times.”

            Yes, she was. It’s overwhelming how much drumpf has destroyed but if some real and lasting change can come out of this, we need to fight to win the White House, Senate and keep the House.

    “James Miller, who served as the undersecretary of Defense for policy from 2012 to 2014,
    resigned from his position on the Pentagon’s science board Tuesday,
    accusing Secretary of Defense Mark Esper of betraying his oath of office by backing President Trump
    on the forceable removal of peaceful protesters in Washington, D.C.,
    the previous day.” (The Hill)

    • June 3, 2020 at 12:29 pm

      From Mr. Miller’s resignation letter:
      “On Monday, June 1, 2020, I believe that you violated that oath.
      Law-abiding protesters just outside the White House were dispersed using tear gas and rubber bullets — not for the sake of safety, but to clear a path for a presidential photo op. You then accompanied President Trump in walking from the White House to St. John’s Episcopal Church for that photo…
      Anyone who takes the oath of office must decide where he or she will draw the line:
      What are the things that theywill refuse to do? Secretary Esper, you have served honorably for many years, in active and reserve military duty, as Secretary of the Army, and now as Secretary of Defense. You must have thought long and hard about where that line should be drawn. I must now ask:
      If last night’s blatant violations do not cross the line for you, what will?”

Under his leadership, EJI has won major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent death row prisoners, confronting abuse of the incarcerated and the mentally ill, and aiding children prosecuted as adults.

      Civil rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson asked by Chris Hayes:
      His response to soldiers standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
      BRYAN STEVENSON:
      “When racial integration came, many of us believed this nation would change.
      None of us thought that 50 years later, black people would be menaced and targeted and marginalized. And what I’ve realized is that we have to reckon with this long history. And that image speaks to our failure to deal with the mythology that we’ve created. The great evil we are facing in America is this legacy created during slavery, this myth that black people are not as good as white people. The enslavers who justified slavery had to create a narrative to make that institution which was so barbaric, acceptable. And so they said that black people are less deserving….that ideology of white supremacy continued past 1865…slavery doesn’t end in 1865 it just evolves. And law enforcement and these institutions of militarized power became the tools that sustained that. It was law enforcement that allowed black people to be ravaged, and massacred, and killed during Reconstruction. White southerners overthrew government because there was no protection. And that ideology of white supremacy was even greater than our commitment to the Constitution, because the 14th Amendment should have protected black and brown people, should
      have allowed black people to vote.”

    The soldiers, military might, fanning the steps of the Lincoln Memorial imo attempts to give the monument new meaning.

      Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Keung, who helped restrain Floyd, and Tou Thao, who stood near the others, were not initially charged. Lane, 37, Kueng, 26, and Thao, 34, are now charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
