We all now know what is at stake. We all want to do something. But real resistance takes endurance, patience, persistence. We cannot simply think of our own personal solutions, my way or the highway. We must be bigger than that. I have been fighting for 12 years at least -my methods keep evolving, but acting out my own personal strategy is just not enough – I must allow at least part of myself to merge into the collective consciousness of good people – who have found “intelligent design.”
How not to win… Occupy Wall Street, must be our teachable moment. Here was an example of the collective consciousness of good people without an intelligence design. Everyone with a conscience was rooting for Occupy Wall Street, but its determined lack of coherent leadership killed of a beautiful mindset.
So you must resist Trump in a multi dimensional assault -using both your personal preferences, (your selfish attacks) but also tagging onto other people’s efforts (your selfless attacks.) The women’s march the day after the inauguration was a good case in point. Some anti Trump people rationalized not helping, since they did not see a centralized message—but I regarded that as silly… optics matter and these events were a huge success and sent a message— that we are not going to sit on our asses.
But we can not be expected to go on long haul mass demonstrations on a consistent basis. So here are my thoughts.
- Be prepared to go long haul -for something massive
- Plan to locally agitate on a regular predetermined.
How to get into a good habit? — to do this repeat a routine about 20 times -after that such an activity (good habit) becomes effortless.
Now you need to find some local group that can help organize you -or you can help to organize. Below is one such idea. Research and see if you like it -see what you can bring to the table
Regarding the above -the location being Nassau County, Long Island. Now If this was me – I would be thinking what would I be interested in? How can I really get a kick out of an activity?Well there are plenty of targets, including Trump properties, Airports and then there is a repulsive Trumpeteering Congressman called Peter King -who thinks that you and I are morons.
Congressman Peter King (R-NY) said Wednesday that college students shaken by President-Elect Trump’s victory are “morons.” On a local Long Island radio program, the congressman mocked them for needing “crying sessions” and “comfort dogs.”
Peter King wants you to contact him…
But you can do better than simply sending an easily ignored email. Find your group -they are out there. Find your real motivation -it is out there. Here is an example.
My dislike of Peter King goes way beyond the normal disdain that anyone should have for such a shallow minded bigot. I have a long memory. Back in the day, before it became so trendy to be against Terrorism there was our man Peter Kin… I mean who would be for terrorism right? Well Peter King used to have no problem supporting terrorist attacks on London
But according to experts in counter terrorism law, if the tough-on-terror policies King trumpets today had taken effect a few decades earlier, King himself might have been subject to prosecution. Over parts of three decades, from his days as an aspiring politician in Long Island through his early years in Congress, King was one of the nation’s most outspoken supporters of the Irish Republican Army and a prolific fundraiser for the Irish Northern Aid Committee (NorAid), allegedly the IRA’s American fundraising arm. The IRA waged a paramilitary campaign against the British presence in Northern Ireland for decades before peace accords were signed in 1998. Part of that effort included bombings and shootings that resulted in civilian deaths in England and Northern Ireland. During the period of King’s involvement, the US government accused both NorAid and the IRA of links to terrorism.
But surely this can not be so – do we have Peter King in his own words supporting Terrorism? As The Atlantic Reports:
1982: “We must pledge ourselves to support those brave men and women who this very moment are carrying forth the struggle against British imperialism in the streets of Belfast and Derry.”
1985: “If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the I.R.A. for it.”
1987: “I’m the Ollie North of Ireland.”
1995: “The moral standing of the IRA is equal to that of the British army.”
A judge in Belfast once threw King out of the courtroom because King “was an obvious collaborator with the IRA,” the judge said. Police picked him out for body searches at other trials.
Now I am sure you can find your own personal target in your own geographic region. Stupidparty reps are likely a personal affront to larges swathes of the population – on so many levels. Are they against planned parenthood -well if they are – people will die. Such people are really pro death. Don’t believe me? Well get the fact here..
My point is simple -these targeted people are deadly and they need to feel the sting of organised groups of highly motivated and informed people. I personally think that there should be no safe haven for Trump and his team of deadly ignorant bigots. We must have a “Churchillian” focus:
We shall defend our values of decency and critical thinking, whatever the cost may be, we shall go and fight on the beaches, we shall go and fight at the airports, at Trump and Co Resorts and hideouts, and in the streets, we shall go and fight in the hills; we shall never sit simply down we shall never surrender,
Let’s us bring religion to these bums, make sure that they have no where to hide…
35. You have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
