No, its based on something that is actually real. His words.
But when there’s a vacuum in our democracy, when we don’t vote, when we take our basic rights and freedoms for granted, when we turn away and stop paying attention and stop engaging and stop believing and look for the newest diversion, the electronic versions of bread and circuses, then other voices fill the void.
We are Americans. We’re supposed to stand up to bullies. Not follow them. We’re supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers. How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad?
"We" was used not to define accomplishments, but to chastise the audience.
When I talk about what i've achieved professionally, I use "we". Because I don't do this alone. I have a team supporting me. "We" do great things here where I work.
Context. It still matters.
