An Injury To One Is An Injury To All

I understand that this is not a political blog but a religion-based blog. Not all of you agree with my politics. But a woman is dead because of a Nazi rally in America in 2017 and my heart is broken. I have not confirmed this but I’ve read rumors that she was a Wobbly (IWW). As a former Wobbly, this hits home even more.


I hope this is something that people on both the Left and the Right can agree is wrong.


As a queer socialist feminist, I’m the kind of person the Nazis would want to kill.


I do not believe in violence. I am and have always been a pacifist.


But if there are Nazis and white supremacists going around threatening people of color, LGBTIQ people, Jewish people, women, or anyone else, I’m glad that there are people like the Antifa who are out there to protect the disenfranchised.


I do not support unprovoked violence on any side, left or right.


I believe that people have the right to express themselves but not if it is an ideology that comes at the cost of others’ right to exist. We must not let this ideology take root again.


Millions of people (Jewish people, leftists, Roma people, LGBTIQ people and more were murdered) by the Nazis.


Let us not ever have to go through that again.
