Contradictions abound in the mass protests against Donald Trump’s whirlwind of proclamations. While Trump’s executive order banning many Muslims should be categorically rejected, we must also reject “the Democratic and Republican parties for creating the conditions that led to it.” Trump has stripped the socially acceptable garments from U.S. empire.
