Michael Moore has a plan.
The corpulent loudmouth leftist filmmaker, who has attacked Donald Trump at every turn, now has a plan to detail the President-Elect.
He posted it on Facebook Tuesday night, and it’s titled “5 Things You Can Do Right Now About Donald J. Trump.”
There’s no crying in Trumpland, he says, so “All hands on Deck!”
Brush your yourself off and let’s get busy because: a) All hope is not lost; b) There are more of us than there are of them; and c) The roadside is littered with the ended careers of self-absorbed, narcissistic politicians whose arrogance led them to do things that caused their early resignation or impeachment. Don’t think that can’t happen here.
None of Moore’s suggestions amount to a bloody coup. It’s just a call to action. Whether or not his many delusional followers will take his advice to heart is unlikely.
So – without further ado – here is Michael Moore’s first of his five sure-fire ways to derail the Trump presidency:
- MAKE YOUR PRESENCE KNOWN. Your Senators and Members of Congress are home right now, in your town (or a nearby town), for their holiday break. Their office is open! You don’t need an appointment. Just show up (to find out where the local office is click here: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ and type in your zip code). Go there (take a friend!), walk in and say “I’m a constituent and I’d like a few minutes with my Congressman/woman.” He/she may be busy, so tell them you’d like to speak to someone on the staff for a couple minutes. Most local congressional offices are LOATHE to turn anyone away because to them you are that one vote who could vote them out of office. Tell the person you get to speak to why you want the Congressman to block all the damage Trump is going to do (cite examples). If he/she is a Republican, they will explain why they “support the new President.” You then must politely tell them you and everyone you know will work to unseat them in 2018 if they don’t act independently from Trump. The calmer and cooler you say this, the more they will believe it. If your rep is a Democrat, tell him/her that you expect them to AGGRESSIVELY fight the Trump agenda — and if they don’t, you will work with others to support a true progressive in the Democratic primary in 2018. Tell them that millions of us will do what the Tea Party did to the Republicans: primary them and toss them out of office. Say it politely, thank them, then leave. You actually showing up in person to do this is as powerful as 100 letters or a large demonstration on the street in front of their office. Do this and post it on social media. Post it on my Facebook or Twitter and I’ll try to re-post/tweet as many as I can.
He’s got four more suggestions. They’re longand not particularly innovative … write your Congressman, go protest at the inauguration, create a “rapid response team,” to respond to pro-Trump social media and run for office yourself.
It’s not like Moore’s reinventing the wheel here … these are suggestions that people have used for generations. Nothing original at all.
But to Moore and his followers, it must be. He ends:
There you go. 5 Easy Pieces. Start tonight. And spread this around. ALL HANDS ON DECK!
