Michael Moore Urges Civil Disobedience At Trump's Inauguration, Warns "It's Going To Be A Lot Worse"

Tyler Durden's picture

Filmmaker Michael Moore is calling for mass demonstrations and disruptions to the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

The outspoken liberal filmmaker suggested on Facebook his "5 Things You Can Do Right Now About Donald J. Trump," outlining a plan for sustained resistance to Trump's agenda.

It's been seven weeks since Hillary beat Trump by nearly 3 million votes but lost the presidency to him. So if your head is still spinning from that mindf***, or you can't quite believe a malignant narcissist will now sit in the Oval Office, or if you are simply still working your way through the 17 stages of grief, then I am here to say to you, "There's no crying in TrumpLand -- Let's get to work!" 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.

 

I do not say these things because I am filled with optimism. In fact, I think the first thing we all have to do in order to move on is to admit out loud what we already think privately: As bad as we know it's going to be, it's actually going to be worse. A lot worse. Now cheer up and read on...

THE FIVE THINGS EACH OF US MUST DO THIS WEEK

 

1. 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.

 

2. WRITE TO THE DNC TONIGHT. It will take 5 minutes. Send a quick email to the Democratic National Committee (http://my.democrats.org/page/s/contact-the-democrats) and tell them you want them to elect Congressman Keith Ellison as the new chairperson of the Democratic Party. He is the future and everyone else is the past. Here's what the old guard gave us: TWICE in 16 years the Democratic candidate WON the vote for President but LOST the White House. Incredible! This has to stop! Ellison and the progressive wing of the party must take us forward. Keith has the backing of Bernie Sanders and myself, but also the endorsement of some of the old guard who've come around to see the error of past ways (Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, etc.). In addition to being born in Detroit, spending his adulthood as a community organizer and now representing the Twin Cities in the House, Ellison is also the only Muslim member of Congress. He was one of the few members of Congress brave enough to back Bernie. He will fight to turn this around and, as a son of the Midwest, bring that part of the country back from the dark side. Let's flood the DNC with emails tonight (and cc: the your state Democratic Party, too - you can look up their email address on Google).

 

3. FORM YOUR OWN RAPID RESPONSE TEAM. By New Year's Day this Sunday, I want you to ask 5 to 10 friends, family members, co-workers, classmates or neighbors to be part of your Rapid Response Team. Pick a name for it -- the "Doyle Family Rapid Response Team", the "Oak Street Rapid Response Team", the "Seabrook High School Rapid Response Team", the "Gilmore Girls Fan Club Rapid Response Team", etc. Set a plan to contact each other online as soon as word goes out on any given day to oppose what Trump and Congress are up to. Your Rapid Response Team will agree with each other to email elected reps, make calls, post on social media, go to protests and/or organize others at work, school or in the neighborhood. Through my own social media sites, as stuff happens, I will send out instructions immediately as to what we all must do. Sign up now to follow me on my Facebook (facebook.com/mmflint) and Twitter (twitter.com/mmflint) if you don't already. Form your team this week. I'm personally organizing a Rapid Response Team in the apartment building where I live. We need to get prepared and be ready now. If we wait til late January to organize, it will be too late.

 

4. MAKE PLANS NOW TO BE AT THE INAUGURATION WEEKEND PROTESTS! We need millions in the streets in DC -- and that's what it looks like it's shaping up to be. The big march will be the day after the Inauguration - the Million Women March on January 21st. Click here for details https://www.facebook.com/events/2169332969958991/. On January 20th - Inauguration Day - a call has been gone out to non-violently disrupt the proceedings. Go to http://www.disruptj20.org/ and learn about civil disobedience on that day. Planes and trains are already selling out, as are hotels. Contact the above sites to get info on buses and housing (or charter your own bus from your town). Everyone who can should be there. If you can't make it, find (or organize) a local protest in your area. Take the day off. No one should be silent that day.

 

5. YOU SHOULD RUN FOR OFFICE. Yes, YOU. Why not? Who else do you think is going to do it? I'm not saying you have to be the next Senator from Michigan, but why not run for State Rep. or school board or city council? At the very least, run for precinct delegate in the local Democratic Party. It's time to stop carping about politicians and become one. But a different kind of one! I ran for and got elected to the school board at 18-years old. Form your campaign committee now for the elections in 2017 and 2018. (If you need me, I'll even offer to be your honorary chair!) You know you can do this. We have no choice. We've left it up to others - yes, Democrats - and they are inept and continual losers. Haven't you had enough? Run for office, any office!

 

There you go. 5 Easy Pieces. Start tonight. And spread this around. ALL HANDS ON DECK!

While careful to specifically call for peaceful protest, one wonders how liable he could be if things turn "aggressive" as he mentions... and whether US Code-Section 879 comes into effect.

Michael Moore is correct in challenging the Democratic Party, and get the old guard out of there.

I also hope that the people that elect Trump will hold his feet to the fire, meaning, making sure Trump delivered what he promised.

If these two happens, it will get very interesting, especially for us bloggers.

Hold Trump's feet to the fire? You mean like the Libtards held El-Zero's feet to the fire?

LMFAO, give us a break.....

Is that what you do, Escrava?  "Blog"?

That just made my day- laughing so hard I can't see the keyboard......

 

fleur de lis's picture

Michael Moore is not challenging the Democrat party.

He is scheming for mass disruptions which will require a mass police presence and a mass chunk of tax money for nothing.

If one person is injured as a result of him egging on the mobs he should be sued for every last fat-coated penney in his account.

If one property is damaged by his rampaging snowflakes he should be made to pay damages.

If he promotes destructive behaviour he should be prepared to pay for it.

Any insurance or law enforcement prfessionals, and lawyers out there please take note.

This cannot continue. 

It is not right to make the rest of us pay in taxes for uber rich screwballs who ignite riots.

This might help.

The mind of Donald Trump.

Fifty years of empirical research in personality psychology have resulted in a scientific consensus regarding the most basic dimensions of human variability. There are countless ways to differentiate one person from the next, but psychological scientists have settled on a relatively simple taxonomy, known widely as the Big Five:

Extroversion: gregariousness, social dominance, enthusiasm, reward-seeking behavior

Neuroticism: anxiety, emotional instability, depressive tendencies, negative emotions

Conscientiousness: industriousness, discipline, rule abidance, organization

Agreeableness: warmth, care for others, altruism, compassion, modesty

Openness: curiosity, unconventionality, imagination, receptivity to new ideas

Most people score near the middle on any given dimension, but some score toward one pole or the other. Research decisively shows that higher scores on extroversion are associated with greater happiness and broader social connections, higher scores on conscientiousness predict greater success in school and at work, and higher scores on agreeableness are associated with deeper relationships. By contrast, higher scores on neuroticism are always bad, having proved to be a risk factor for unhappiness, dysfunctional relationships, and mental-health problems. From adolescence through midlife, many people tend to become more conscientious and agreeable, and less neurotic, but these changes are typically slight: The Big Five personality traits are pretty stable across a person’s lifetime.

One can only hope that proper undercover, military, police & intelligence will be present to to deal with the Agent Provocateurs.

I watched his "let's all be friends" thing just before the election.. the one where he is try to convince a bunch of hicks in the sticks that liberals and Hillary are not that bad, and everything will be okay after Hillary wins.....

Somebody needs to do that clockwork orange thing where they force his eyes open and make him watch it a million times.

So basically Moore has sold himself out to Hillary's neocons, whether knowingly or not. Never thought I'd live to see that, from a man who opposed the Bush era neocons. Does he not understand about being lied to anymore?

Maybe Michael Moore can explain how snowflakes in constant search of a safe space are supposed to run for public office when some word spoken by their opponent can cause episodes of panic, hysteria and discombobulation.

The more I obeserve, the more R/K Selection theory explains...the more Nazi Germany made sense. Liberals need to be kept in check and reminded that their egalitarian horseshit results in everybody being dead.

This can be accomplished by making public examples of key Communists, if necessary.

What a joke. The worst aspect of American conservatism is the anti-intellectual stance which relies on pseudo-science and populist psychology to manipulate a following (essentially, the r-theory of thought). Incredibly dangerous, and this nonsense is akin to the worst aspects of both Nazi propaganda and Bolshevik scientism. And what is ironic is that the alt-right takes up these ideas while admitting that they are the new Left (Richard Spencer, for example).

These surface theories which lack any intellectual depth draw in the worst political groups and then the problem compounds to the point that interest could never even be calculated. In other words, philistinic conservatism has no understanding of the real problems and seeks to fix these fake problems with fake solutions - not so unlike the political parties they oppose.

In reality, a K-type can be noble or parasitic - note how lone wolves feed off of the remnants of their former group, or even resort to dog-like behaviour to obtain food in the cities. As one of the iconic images of parasitism and death the vulture can also be seen as having noble or even cross-species cooperative traits: in opening up the tough skin of dead animals it does the dirty work which allows others to eat.

Butcher birds engage in what is akin to torture. And the large groups of prey-animals engage in a cooperative structure because it is their best competitive strategy. The still group hides weakness.

Anthropomorphism is a dangerous strategy, and one of the major changes brought about by Darwinism is a shift in morality towards more animalistic thinking. At what point does biological morality lower the human traditions to that of animals? Here, the ultra-conservatives are simply playing an ecologist's trick while ignoring the reality of the human situation. The human race has long been taken over by r-strategy and effectively Darwinism is a negative form of penance whereby the animals themselves inherit our creation stories.

God is dead, how shall the animals become worthy of it?

We live in mass termite mounds, so any discussion of moral biology is simply disingenuous nihilism (if such a thing were possible). And while there are certainly moral individuals left, or at least those who try, their attempts at moral recreation are lost within the monotonous mass of termite culture. Anything you create will most likely be carried off and become loss in the mass of billions.

Mating rituals are situational, often dependent on resources, climate, and known predators. The rabbit's strategy is not stagnant, it can be 'liberal' or 'conservative', just as the seed which is sown in sparse soil will have conservative or even non-existent roots. It may be the ideal seed, but without proper soil it will not grow. The seed even 'knows' beforehand the extent of its future root system. A lack of synchronistic understanding on the part of humans suggests our devolution.

Also important to consider is that it was psyops who first introduced biopolitical thinking - a way of seeing which convinces one to view other people as mere biological pawns for political means.

Twee Surgeon's picture

So you are more full of shit than a Christmas Turkey, whats your point boy ? A lack of synchronicity on your part is making you full of horse shit. Go and get a job hanging Sheetrock for a month to see how gravity affects your basement philosophy. Fuck off with the flowery ideas and get a job, see what carrying slabs up to the third floor of a retired DMV workers retirement rapper mansion feels like and try to live off the paycheck. Moral Biology, Bio-Political thinking, disingenuous nihilism ?

How about opening a can of 'Shut the fuck up'. (This is the G theory of thought, G means Get a job, fart-gas boy.)

Nice r-type response, degenerate. If you think that is flowery language then you must be about as well read as a basement nigger in Detroit.

Also, you sound like a Marxist with that working class worship. Kind of ironic for a financialist wannabe.

general ambivalent's picture

Not sure the relevance of this, it suggests something closer to what I am saying than this social r-type nonsense. Specifically, that evolution can change the very nature of a competitive-type animal into a domesticated-type.

Animal biology is not rigid and permanent, which is the main fault of the above article.

Yeah, that's what we need a mooslim heading up the DNC.

How is a devotee of Islam progressive.

Their culture and religion is right out of the 7th century. Just as backward as a 3rd world sewer.

Islam as the standard bearer of women's rights is synonymous with Hitler being the standard bearer of Jewish rights.

I can see Keith Ellison's platform now. Free burkas for all women and free toss off a tall building for all gays, transgenders and other such queer folk.

Ellison as head of the DNC is absolutely perfect to me.  Please, please do it.  Schumer, Pelosi, Ellison.....So do the Democrats just have a wish to be LESS relevant?
