Letters to the Senator

October 22, 2019

 

Dear Senator Tillis,

The president has surrounded himself with criminals and commits high crimes and misdemeanors repeatedly in public.  He is corrupt to the core, and has appointed corrupt people to serve on his cabinet, most of them selected for their willingness to dismantle the very agencies they are supposed to lead.  Partisan voter suppression is rampant, and interference with our elections by foreign governments is invited and occurs in plain sight. Our intelligence agencies and dedicated public servants are contradicted and silenced and threatened.  The Attorney General of the United States is using his office to traffic in false conspiracy theories so that he can punish the political enemies of the president. The president blatantly mocks and disregards the rule of law.

 

Where will it end?  Meanwhile, you who have been charged with defending the Constitution instead continue to parrot the lies and obstruction of the president and his cronies.  Meanwhile, you think the most important thing you can do is to sign an amicus brief for a florist who thinks it is her 1st Amendment right to refuse to make a flower arrangement for queer people.  This was emphatically not what our founders intended by putting “freedom of religion” in the Constitution, and you know it.

 

It is not too late to decide to be on the right side of history.  There is no way you can win the next election except by becoming as much of a criminal as the president.  Why not do the right thing, and actually represent the people of North Carolina, and actually defend the Constitution of the United States?  We demand that you call for the House bill about Syria to come to the floor of the Senate. We demand that you impeach this president.

Defend the Country, not the President

 

Even when Trump abandoned the  at the direction of Turkey’s president, Tillis defended him, saying he “trusts” Trump. Join us as we demand that Senator Tillis defend our country’s most sacred values and stand up to this corrupt, narcissistic, and racist president.

October 1, 2019

Dear Senator Tillis,

We appreciate that you took the time this week to listen to the soldiers and families at Fort Bragg.  This could not have been easy for you.  It would be so great if you would know that, having survived this difficult event, you are strong enough to continue to listen to your constituents.

It is true that the President is more popular than you are in our state, so we understand why you would think that continuing to defend him might improve your own political fortunes.

We also understand why you are afraid of him.  He is a bully who will stop at nothing to stay in power.  He is also fighting for his life and for the lives of his family.  All of them are deeply implicated in numerous crimes.

Now he and Senator McConnell and AG Barr and apparently the head of the State Department are betting that Trump’s ability to whip people into a frenzy of hate will allow them to take over the House as well as keep the Senate and the White House.

We ask you today if you really want to be part of this plan.  Have you so totally sold your soul that you want to bet your own life on such a fragile house of cards?  Will lies win in the end, or truth?  Will brute strength crush all voices of reason, and all songs of love?  Will the earth die because a few wealthy men are determined to continue to amass wealth by cultivating hate and false conspiracy theories and crimes?

It is not too late to do the right thing and to be on the right side of history.  Please listen to those of us who are crying out for the future of our democracy, which has shown itself to be extremely fragile.  And please try to listen to your own heart and your own conscience.  At some point it will be too late, and this time is coming soon.
