We knew this day would come. Donald Trump called for “the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.” Fox News and CNN provide identical quotes of these words.
For everyone who ever took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, you now have a new, self-declared, domestic enemy. Knowing this does not mean joining the legions of the “woke.” It means siding with America against a cult of personality.
We have seen the like before. Communists and fascists and separatists of every stripe who exploit our open system but do not believe in it. We have survived them because we see them for what they are.
Opposing them is not just politics. It is patriotism.
