Hey Trump, you ignorant fascist...here's who Frederick Douglass was. Now, read what he said, fool.

To mark Black history month, Trump said, “Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.”

Do you think Trump noticed this amazing job of a speech by Frederick Douglass? This rings as true today as ever and should definitely be recognized more and more.

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. Revcom.us/Revolution is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.

Get SCIENCE AND REVOLUTION Out to Scientists

In the face of the Trump/Pence regime’s fascist attacks on science and critical thinking, there is a lot of outrage and ferment among scientists and in the scientific community. If you’re a follower of revcom.us, we encourage you to get out to universities, science labs, scientific conferences, and elsewhere to get the book Science and Revolution, an interview with Ardea Skybreak, into the hands of scientists and professors and students in the sciences.

To revcom.us readers: Now is a crucial time to join in the protests and other events where masses of people all over are acting against the fascist outrages by the Trump/Pence Regime—especially get out to the campuses! Take with you palm cards with the slogan “NO! In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America” and with the quotes from Bob Avakian (BA) on truth and the approach to understanding reality (epistemology).
