Bravery in the Face of Nazism

The two men stabbed to death yesterday on a train in Portland, trying to intervene when another passenger began shouting anti-Muslim hate speech at two young Muslim women, represent the best in us. Their compassion and courage in the face of brutal intolerance is the essence of what it means to defend the founding principles of this nation — and what we memorialize on Memorial Day.

As I’ve said a few times since His Electoral Highness descended the golden escalator “Nazis are as Nazis do.” I’d rather be stabbed to death defending the oppressed than I would be counted as of the same heritage as the knife-wielder. This is the decision that all of us must make over the next few months, because it is only going to get worse as Trump’s presidency continues.
