“Silence in the face of injustice is complicity with the oppressor.”-Ginetta Sagan
Today, I’m taking a break from my normally scheduled programming to express my dismay and rage at the Executive Order (EO) signed yesterday by the President, which in my eyes constitutes a subversive ban on individuals who practice Islam, or whose national origins are Middle Eastern or North African. I’ve been trying to process the order, on the heels of a week full of draconian and problematic Executive Orders and Memoranda. I saw the headlines last night, and I did not believe that this government, the government of a country I love, would turn its back on the world. That it would build such high walls, and with such wholesale discrimination.
