First They Came for the Muslims

 

… and we said, “NOT ON OUR F*CKING WATCH!”

Saturday, January 28th 2017

So this is already happening.  On Friday (1/27/17) F*cking Chumpity-Dumbass Dumphead literally ordered a ban on Muslims from entering the country!

See:  http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/01/trump-order-170129030842119.html

Trump signed the executive order on Friday  that effectively denies entry to people from seven Muslim-majority countries, including those with green cards, who otherwise have permanent residence in the US.
Signing the order at the Pentagon, Trump said the move would help protect Americans from “terrorist” attacks.

That motherfucker is just perpetuating fear and division for personal gain.  Muslim refugees aren’t coming here to bomb us, even as we are actively bombing SEVEN countries worldwide.  Apparently he doesn’t know we are far more likely to get killed by that ever present danger; ARMED TODDLERS.

My friend & comrade DJB sums it best:

Within one day (Saturday 1/28), travelers trying to enter the country (with valid passports and visas!) started getting handcuffed and detained at our international airports.

How did good citizens respond?

That’s right: 

resist


LOOK!

JFK Airport No Muslim Ban [59:46]:

These thousands of people chanting are MUSIC TO MY EARS and I could listen to it for a long time.  (I can hardly wait for a recording artist to release a resistance song using this as rhythm and percussion.)

#FUCK THE WALL WE’LL TEAR IT DOWN!

#LET THEM IN!

#NO BAN!  NO REGISTRY!  FUCK WHITE SUPREMACY! 

#I DON’T SEE NO RIOT HERE!  WHY ARE YOU IN RIOT GEAR?

#NO HATE! NO FEAR!  REFUGEES ARE WELCOME HERE! 

#WHOSE STREETS? OUR STREETS?

#WHAT DO WE WANT? JUSTICE! WHEN DO WE WANT IT?  NOW!

#IF WE DON’T GET IT? SHUT IT DOWN!  IF WE DON’T GET IT?  SHUT IT DOWN!

#IF. WE. DON’T. GET. IT. SHUT. IT. DOWN


And here is our kickass take-no-prisoners Senator Elizabeth Warren roaring like the relentlessly compassionate lion she is.  Elizabeth Warren Protests Muslim Ban at Logan Airport [2:12]:

 

Here is our Boston Mayor -Marty Walsh- joining in solidarity with protesters at Logan Airport.  Marty Walsh No Muslim Ban Logan Airport [2:20]: 

 

And here is a another example of GREAT leadership from the Governor of Washington State.  The Governor of Washington just declared Donald Trump and enemy of the United States.This is powerful [5:48]:

 


Personally, I am amazed at how quickly and radically people mobilized at airports all around the country.  What incredible rapid flexibility, with NO NOTICE.  I am still processing the Women’s March from last weekend, and WOW.  It really worked.  It really was a KICKOFF PARTY of historical proportions.  It was a practice run for what we will apparently need EVERY DAMN DAY of this asshole’s “presidency.”


#When We Fight We Win.  AND WE WON!!
