“Nip it in the bud” is one of the translations for “Wehert den Anfängen”, however (even when the quote goes back 2000 years), in the German speaking world it has a strong anti-Nazi connotation. Because during the rise of fascism in the 1930, the writing on the wall was overlooked. In the beginning fascism could have been beaten. Therefore
Prevent the disease from spreading. Speak out against fascism!
More than ever we need now a firm resistance to prevent Trumpism turning into fascism. We have to watch every move and respond to every step. We have to protest whenever we see the writing on the wall. We have to roar when fascism shows it ugly face an say loudly:
No! Not in my name!
We might have to stand up every day and speak out. It might take weeks, months, four or — God beware — even eight years, but we have to do it. For justice, for dignity, for future generations and the survival of the humankind.
Yes, Mr. Trump, we watch you.
Populism and luck got you in the White house, but we the people are the majority. You do not speak for us, you do not represent us. We don’t share your xenophobic and racist attitudes. We do not share your view on women.
On the contrary, we, the majority, belief in an open society with equal rights for all, we believe in mutual respect and gender equality. And we care for future generations.
You will not silence us.
