Bravery in the Face of Fascism

I have just one small thing to say today. Actually I don't - the occupant of the Oval Office is currently attacking jurors participating in our judicial system. In particular, he is attacking the Jury Foreperson.

Of all the thousands of ugly, mean and cruel things he has done, this may rank up there in the top five. This may very well get someone killed for participating in our democracy.

Having said that, this woman is remarkably courageous.
Tomeka Hart said she had remained silent about the case for months out of concern for her safety and "politicizing the matter."

But the events this week led to her to post on her Facebook account that she "can't keep quiet any longer." A copy of the posting was shared with CNN. Hart confirmed to CNN that she wrote the post but did not want to discuss it further.

"I want to stand up for Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed, Michael Marando, and Jonathan Kravis -- the prosecutors on the Roger Stone trial," she wrote in the post that was shared with CNN. "It pains me to see the DOJ now interfere with the hard work of the prosecutors. They acted with the utmost intelligence, integrity, and respect for our system of justice."

That she allowed her name to be used while we are witness to what has all the tones of fascism is incredibly brave. I don't know if I could have done it, but I salute Ms. Hart and I hope she has protection.

Let's get Thursday going.
