Trump Declared Martial Law. Will the Right Denounce Him?

Earlier today, the White House ordered an illegal, fascist attack on peaceful demonstrators well within their First Amendment rights across the street from the White House so the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue could take a photo opp in a church. The attack was a first strike, completely unprovoked, and 30 minutes before a recent local curfew. By any meaningful measure of the law, the executive branch declared war on The People of the United States.

We call on the ten congressional representatives in the Houston area and our two US Senators to immediately denounce these authoritarian actions without hesitation, equivocation, or hedging, both swiftly and directly. Explicitly, we call on the President’s colleagues in his party to side with The People over the fascist power that has been levelled at us.

There is no middle ground on this issue. Attacking innocent civilians for practicing the First Amendment by invoking the Insurrection Act is an assault on each and every one of us and our Constitution.

Sylvia Garcia and Sheila Jackson Lee have already made statements:

We expect John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, Dan Crenshaw, Randy Weber, Kevin Brady, Mike McCaul, Pete Olson, and Brian Babin to immediately denounce this assault. We expect the same from their colleagues across the aisle in Houston as well, including Lizzie Fletcher and Al Green.

Which side are you on?

Now is the time to tell us.

Indivisible Houston will update this post as statements come out along with our commentary.
