I must say I really enjoyed what happened to Mike Pence, the sinister man from GLAD or MAGA, when went to the theatre the other night to take in a performance of the Broadway musical Hamilton.
And got a stirring message from the cast, urging him to restrain his bigot instincts and respect the human rights of all Americans. As well as a rousing chorus of boos.
And I can only hope that somebody asked him that old and tragic question:
"Apart from that
And of course we know how the leathery orange oaf reacted, by blowing an angry stream of tweets out of every inflamed orifice.
But while I found Trump's tweets amusing, just more evidence that maniacal man baby is unfit to be president.
This tweet from the reptilian Republican Newt Gingrich really annoyed me...
For it seems to suggest that the left is almost dead, or down for the count.
When in fact it's never been more alive, and the resistance is just beginning.
The rhetoric is familiar: the demands to take the country back. The railing against an out-of-touch elite. The anger at a rigged economic system.
But now the insurgent cries that propelled Donald Trump to the White House have been taken up by stunned opponents as they try to galvanise anger and fear over his election into a strategy to resist his policies and remake the left as a credible political alternative.
“Now we are seeing a rising up of people to say it’s supposed to be our country. The government’s supposed to fear us, not the other way around.
That resistance will take many forms. There will be marches and rallies. Trump's businesses will be picketed and boycotted, as will states that voted for him. There will be social media campaigns. There will be 12-step programs.
I WILL not lose hope. I will keep reminding myself that politics zigs and zags, and that I can do more than shout in the wind. I can fight for my values even between elections, and even at the micro level I can mitigate the damage to my neighbors and attempt to heal a social fabric that has been rent.
But one thing is for sure, it will be the most massive and creative resistance the world has ever seen.
It will be in Trump's face wherever he goes.
Like this sign projected on the front of a hotel in Atlanta...
Which since it's not illegal to do that, can't be taken down.
And yes, it will be loud. Like Green Day's song Bang Bang at the American Music Awards last night.
That had a stirring new chant: "No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA!!!"
I think Green Day and the AMA's are about to join Hamilton & SNL on Trump's shit list 😂😭😂😭✊🏾💯🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/b2EhE4MaBk— Hercules Mulligan (@johnvmoore) November 21, 2016
And out of the ashes of the old America will come a new and mighty movement for real change, that will eventually become a revolution...
The young will be leading it, for most of them don't believe in bigotry, and they must protect the future of the planet they have inherited, or perish in its ashes.
The wind is howling outside my window as I write this. It echoes my feelings, and sounds like the resistance rising.
The fascists will not win.
And like the Trump Cons in this country, this beast is going down...
