A Round Up of Resistance to Trump


#2276

Yes, upsetting indeed, that poor father…

But, I think it also evinces how the tide has turned on that issue, even in Alabama. Cruel fuckheads like Moore just can’t and won’t turn back that tide.


#2277

Yeah, no.


#2278

Rep. Jackie Speier has spoken of rumored firing of Mueller to occur December 22. MoveOn is organizing protest to occur if Mueller is fired. (Just a rumor. That’s all I have.)

Get involved.

Rallies will begin hours after news breaks of a Mueller firing:

If Mueller is fired BEFORE 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ 5 P.M. local time
If Mueller is fired AFTER 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ noon local time the following day
This is the general plan—please confirm details on your event page, as individual hosts may tailor their events to their local plan.

I just don’t get what 45 thinks will happen if he fires Mueller.

It won’t make the Russian collusion investigation ‘just go away’, and it only serves to make him look even more guilty than he already does.


#2285

All I can think of is that he probably thinks that his base will love it. “Stick’n it to 'th man!” they’ll probably say in front of their rebel flags and Nazi memorabilia.

(What I don’t get is why there wasn’t or isn’t a rapid response demonstration over this bullshit tax scam that is going to pass this week? )


#2286

Especially as he’s not legally allowed to fire Mueller.


#2287

Right; trying to do so will only make his situation even worse.

MAXIMUM TROLL ACHIEVED

So some people want a lefty celebrity to join DemSocialists…

Did he join?

I’m confused – what do you get out of that exchange, and why do you think it’s worth sharing?


#2294

I first read it as Cusack implying that he was already a member. Some comments suggest that may not be the case, though (although the DSA will be working hard to correct that if so).

I’m mostly just mildly amused. Cusack is one of the few mainstream celebs who has not so far shown himself to be a douche. The DSA doesn’t want or need rich white dudes as patrons or leaders, but I’m happy for folks like Cusack to be a regular dues-paying member.

It suggests to me that the DSA is beginning to gain mass-scale visibility and popularity. Still baby steps, but the trajectory is there.


#2295

Yeah, he’s always struck me as pretty cool. Wish he’d stick his neck out a little further, though, and more often.

Thanks for explaining.
