I can hardly wait to row out to a dark place on the lake tomorrow night, to watch the supermoon rising.
For at a time when the darkness of fascism is descending on America, threatening to turn that country into a police state, or the Mad State of Trump.
At a time when so many of our neighbours are so stunned, so full of despair, and so angry.
I think that big old moon couldn't be a more hopeful symbol of what is about to happen.
The beginning of a peaceful progressive revolution that will crush the fascists once and for all, and save the world from destruction.
The rise of the resistance...
This video is the real thing, folks. Anti-Trump protest march today in downtown LA. Please circulate! pic.twitter.com/Pndh7AnYSq— Charles Johnson (@Green_Footballs) November 13, 2016
And a massive movement that has never been so united.
One where progressives will never again make the mistake of fighting themselves instead of the real enemy.
Or take democracy for granted.
A resistance so broad based that even some Republicans have joined it...
In a country where more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton than they did for Donald Trump.
And then best of all, there is the return of Bernie Sanders, declaring war on the Democratic establishment.
The revolution is back in business. Supporters of Bernie Sanders' failed presidential bid are seizing on Democratic disarray at the national level to launch a wave of challenges to Democratic Party leaders in the states.
And unlike that establishment that led the Democrats to disaster, acknowledging the hunger for change that led so many Americans to vote for Donald Trump.
Millions of Americans registered a protest vote on Tuesday, expressing their fierce opposition to an economic and political system that puts wealthy and corporate interests over their own.
I am saddened, but not surprised, by the outcome. It is no shock to me that millions of people who voted for Mr. Trump did so because they are sick and tired of the economic, political and media status quo.
Challenging Trump to take on the big banks and his fellow billionaires, so his movement can reap the benefits when that old Con artist fails...
As he surely will.
Warning him to rein in his deplorables.
I am deeply distressed to hear stories of Americans being intimidated and harassed in the wake of Mr. Trump’s victory, and I hear the cries of families who are living in fear of being torn apart. We have come too far as a country in combating discrimination. We are not going back. Rest assured, there is no compromise on racism, bigotry, xenophobia and sexism. We will fight it in all its forms, whenever and wherever it re-emerges.
For let's not forget, they are beasts and bullies of the lowest order.
While renewing his call for a new American revolution...
When my presidential campaign came to an end, I pledged to my supporters that the political revolution would continue. And now, more than ever, that must happen. We are the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. When we stand together and don’t let demagogues divide us up by race, gender or national origin, there is nothing we cannot accomplish. We must go forward, not backward.
And of course sending out the same message that Bernie always has: never give up.
Which just happened to be the same message sent out last night by Kate McKinnon, who invoked the spirit of our great Leonard Cohen, in this moving opening to Saturday Night Live.
Never give up. This is our time.
Conditions for a great progressive revolution have never been better.
Only something so bad could lead to something so good.
That big old moon is rising, and so is the resistance...
