Donald Trump is quite the inspiration to hundreds of millions of men and women throughout the world. Here in this country his words and actions have inspired millions to take action against him in public and it often causes him a lot of grief. Public protests are very common place nearly everywhere he goes. Protestors stood in solidarity in front of Trump Tower after he claimed that some of the racists in Chancellorsville, VA were good people. They also protested him after he made disparaging remarks about Mexicans, again after it came out in the Access Hollywood tape that he was free to sexually assault women because he’s a celebrity, and again over his DACA decision that could lead to the loss of the Dreamers. Trump has also been the inspiration of the nationwide resist movement. The largest single day protest in American history was the Women’s March in January of 2017 and guess who inspired their march? You guessed it…Donald Trump.
NBC News reported Tuesday that the Democratic Women’s Working Group was inspired to create yet another protest against Donald Trump. Because of Mr. Trump’s alleged attacks on women, the group has invited every member of congress who will be attending the State of the Union Address on January 30th, whether male or female, Democratic or Republican, to dress all in black. They’ve asked members to do this in solidarity with the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Hopefully Donald Trump will see a sea of black when he takes the podium to give the address. The group has already signed up every female Democratic house member to their cause, and there will most certainly be more joining in. Rep. Jackie Speier told NBC that support for the symbolic protest is high within her group.
Although the black attired group, and any others who join them, won’t be holding up signs, yelling, or interrupting Mr. Trump, their silent protest against Mr. Trump will be very obvious to anyone who watches or even sees pictures of the event. There will be lots of cameras and coverage from every news media source in the country, so viewers should keep an eye out for the silent protestors and appreciate what they’re doing. Because it really is a good thing. Mr. Trump has sown a lot of discord in the world, so it will be nice to see those who represent us coming together in solidarity to bring attention to the fact that many women have been subjected to unwanted advances and attacks, and that’s something that should never happen again.
The Democratic Women’s Working Group got the idea for the black out from Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards. Most of the men and women who attended the awards ceremony decked out all in black in support of victims of sexual misconduct. The black out was quite the hit with attendees and even the public too and has been the talk of the town this week.
