Mi Familia Vota!
Donald Trump is dangerous. His campaign mobilizes right wing – anti immigrant forces. Trump’s campaign is not just racism- it's a strategy to magnify racism to win the election -and we must defeat it !
We need to develop strategies to defeat Donald Trump. Trump has shown he can and will mobilize extreme right-wing racists forces in our society. He is anti Mexican, anti immigrant, and anti Muslim.
We develop this campaign as a specific effort to implement Talking Point #2 as listed by the DSA NPC in their May meeting.
“2. Organize against a Trump victory
DSA believes that a Donald Trump presidency would represent a victory for the most reactionary nativist, misogynist, Islamophobic and racist forces in the country. A Trump administration would bring immediate harm to many people and would create conditions hostile to organizing for progressives. Therefore, DSA will work with the emerging labor, immigrant, and anti-racist-led “Dump Trump” movement. For this reason, we do not endorse the #BernieOrBust tactic, though we understand the sentiment behind it. Our perspective can best be summarized as: “Dump the Racist Trump: Build the Left from the Grassroots Up.”

We need to attend to racism and recognize its role because others (Democratic Party types) will do much less, or they will use video clips to reveal his racism but not build a left organization based upon defeating Trump. If we do not raise the racism/terrorism issues, then DSA ‘s work will continue to reflect primarily the Anglo community and we would miss an important opportunity to build a multiracial left. See.
We have developed a working plan for individuals to coordinate their work in defeating Trump and attacking racism. The campaign includes working together to:
1. Targeted voter registration of Latino voters.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
