Today’s Action: Investigate the links between white supremacy and law enforcement

On Saturday, 43 Senate Republicans acquitted Donald Trump for launching a full-scale attack on our election system and inciting a violent coup that killed five. Their cowardice sends a green-light to all right-wing MAGA extremists and Trump himself that their actions were not only acceptable, but will be welcomed again in the future.

Our actions on this matter aren’t over, but they have shifted now that we’re post-trial. The root of this violence – white supremacy – must not go unanswered.

The people who carried out Trump’s coup included off-duty law enforcement and members of the military, who stood among the Confederate flags and nooses erected on federal property. And they were assisted by members of the on-duty Capitol Police, who posed for selfies with the extremists, gave directions, and may have opened barriers to assist the coup.

We’re boosting an action from Black Lives Matter today: Call or email your Members of Congress and demand their support for Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s COUP Act to investigate the connections between Trump’s coup and white supremacist law enforcement and military.

Our modern-day law enforcement directly derives from white “slave patrols” created to surveil and kill Black enslaved people. Post-empancipation, white supremacist vigilante groups transitioned quickly into government-supported law enforcement designed to “protect” white people from Black people. The modern-day War on Drugs ensures that law enforcement continues its focus on Black communities in a post-Civil Rights Era. Law enforcement has been and continues to be a safe haven for white supremacists, as it was designed with this intention. And our military carries out American white supremacy internationally through invasion and occupation.

Trump’s coup is a microcosm of how structural white supremacy in law enforcement and military aids and abets white violence en masse…and to ignore the implications of one of the worst assaults on the Capitol in our nation’s history is giving white supremacy yet another free pass.

Congress must investigate.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress. Tell them to support Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s COUP Act to investigate white supremacist law enforcement and military connections to Trump’s coup.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to bring criminal charges against Trump, and get your copy of the delightful “I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening)” by Pantsuit Politics hosts, Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth A. Silvers, a fun read to help us cope with the aftermath of a post-Trump America.
