Voters of Alabama: It’s Time To Stand Up


If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. Desmond Tutu

The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing. Albert Einstein

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. Thomas Jefferson

Standing up to bullies is the hallmark of a civilized society. Robert Reich

One does not have to operate with great malice to do great harm. The absence of empathy and absence of understanding are sufficient. Charles M. Blow

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest it. Elie Wiesel

I always wondered why somebody doesn’t do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody. Lily Tomlin

It’s time for you, Alabama, to take a good look at yourselves and decide whether you really want to be represented at the highest levels of government for six long years by a grim theocrat who was removed from his chief justice position once for insisting on displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom, and then suspended years later because he refused to accept the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage and now has clear multiple allegations of sexual harassment and mis-conduct. The man known as the Ayatollah of Alabama isn’t likely to burnish the reputation of your state as a sane and safe place. Stand up! We are counting on you!
