INAUGURATION PROTEST POSTERS

On Friday, January 20, President-elect Donald Trump will be officially sworn in as the United States of America’s 45th President

A controversial figure, Trump has alienated a substantial amount of Americans throughout the course of his campaign and eye-opening victory. To condemn his platform and protest his presidential plans, countless groups are organizing demonstrations along the National Mall in Washington DC, where the inauguration will take place.

While many of these associations are purely politics-based, The Amplifier Foundation – in collaboration with contemporary artists Shepard Fairey, Ernesto Yerena, and Jessica Sabogal – will bring an artistic touch to the event with We the People, a collection of inspiring inauguration posters.

Rendered in street art’s signature stenciled style, each We the People poster features a powerful portrait of an American citizen. Promoting unity while emphasizing diversity, the series of prints presents people from various walks of life.

One design features a Muslim woman clad in a star-spangled hijab; another depicts a Native American elder; and one even portrays a tender moment between a same-sex couple.

Beneath each patriotic portrait is a message, many of which are defiantly led by “We the People,” the famous first words of the American Constitution.

Although some of the posters look strikingly similar to Fairey’s Hope – a piece popularized during President Obama’s inspiring 2008 campaign – the Amplifier Foundation stresses an important underlying difference between the two projects.

bline

“Eight years ago, the artist Shepard Fairey made the iconic image that captured a period of HOPE in America.

Today we are in a very different moment, one that requires new images that reject the hate, fear, and open racism that were normalized during the 2016 presidential campaign.

So on Inauguration Day, We the People will flood Washington, DC with NEW symbols of hope.”

Thoughts for today, #448 …. “Seven Deadly Sins … and a double chin …. “!!

DOUBLE CHIN – WATTLE

The official term for the red thing on a turkey is a wattle. The wattle changes color as the turkey gets excited or angry.

~Wikipedia~

bline

The seven deadly sins, also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins, is a grouping and classification of vices of Christian origin.

Behaviors or habits are classified under this category if they directly give birth to other immoralities.

According to the standard list, they are pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth, which are also contrary to the seven virtues. These sins are often thought to be abuses or excessive versions of one’s natural faculties or passions (for example, gluttony abuses one’s desire to eat).

SCREAM FOR A WHILE

Or maybe, I’d rather go by myself!

That’s how I’ve been feeling since November 8, 38 days ago.

Some may say it’s time to get on with your life and accept the results of the fatal/rigged/dirty election.

I found these thoughts as I strolled through social media and have kept them.

I’ve kept them because they express the same feelings that have developed in my mind, my soul and my psyche.

I can’t give in.

I can’t accept.

This wasn’t and isn’t correct!

I followed the process and continue to do so.

I understand that some are elated and happy.

I wonder how long that happiness will last.

Regrets yet?

“I have a right to be angry. I have a right to grieve. I have a right to be scared, and to let that be known. And if my voice makes you uncomfortable, maybe that says more about you than it does about me.”

“I haven’t been fully present since election night. I wander in and out of awareness – floating from one out-of-body experience to the next. It’s hard to be present when everything instantly loses its vibrancy, when the world fades from Technicolor to dystopian black and white overnight, as you’re faced with the stark realization that millions of your countrymen disregarded a presidential candidate’s messages of hate so that they could get to work on, supposedly, tearing down the political establishment.”

~Donald Trump posts Thanksgiving message to YouTube~

President-elect Donald Trump wished Americans a happy Thanksgiving via YouTube late Wednesday, asking to “restore the bonds of trust between citizens.”

The 104-second video was uploaded to Trump’s Transition 2017 page, and featured the Republican sitting at a desk in front of an American flag and speaking directly to the camera.

It’s the second video posted to Trump’s new YouTube page this week, following another clip that laid out plans for his administration.

Something to think about …. “Trump Voters …. Christian Fascist Racists or totally unaware …. you decide …. “!!


vot

~~November 16, 2016~~ 

TRUMP VOTER 

‘I am sick of everybody making excuses for the Trump voter!
It’s “Oh, they’re not really racist”.

They are just “ignorant as f*ck and they just wanted change” so they voted for and were duped by the same old Reagan/Bush line of lies & deception”.

Bullshit!

They are racist as HELL and they are also fascist as HELL too, and they don’t even know it!!
They are Christian Fascist Racists, and they know exactly what they are doing!
America needs to wake up and see the “Writing on the Wall”…
This Trump Presidency is nothing but a “Dress Rehearsal for Fascism!”

I must say that I believe that this doesn’t truly apply to ALL of them.

I want to believe that. I have to believe that.

However, it’s hard not to do so when acts of hatred, bigotry, bullying, sexism, white supremacy propaganda, homophobia, abuse and more are seen on social media and in reputable platforms as the Southern Poverty Law Center.

I think it’s fair to say that white Americans voted for this.

~US hate crimes are surging after Trump’s win~

The Southern Poverty Law Center has recorded more than 400 incidents of harassment and hate in the first six days since Donald Trump won the US presidential election.

President-elect Trump – apparently surprised by these incidents, although his campaign should be used to charges of racism by now – has called on people to stop.

He has said he wants to “bind the wounds of division.”

(Yeah, right!)

It Is What It Is …. Dr. Rex …. “Blogging for change …. going dark for a while …. “!!


dark

~~November 11, 2016~~ 

GOING DARK

Slang term in the intelligence world which means you go silent. You don’t speak or communicate with anyone for a given period on time.

It is a way of protecting yourself from someone who would do you harm.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/

bline

At this moment in time, I’m going dark because there are no real words to convey the way I feel today; the way I’ve felt since election night.

Many were hoping for a ‘sea of blue‘ on that USA map. Instead it was a ‘sea of red‘.

(Could that be an indicator of things to come? The color of blood.)

I still feel numb. My heart is aching. I don’t have the spirit of ‘dust yourself off and get ready to fight’.

I’m not there yet. Don’t know it I will.

For now, I’ll reblog what is interesting, educational and related to current events.

I’ll be back when I feel I’m ready.

Michael Moore said it best; this wasn’t just an election ― this was a referendum on bigotry. And, bigotry won. The Alt-Right is already celebrating. The Alt-Right who exists under the guise of an ambiguous title, but is nothing more than a white supremacist nationalist group who seek a to rid this country of anything deemed as “other.”

Last night was a victory for them.

It was a victory for the KKK.

It was a victory for hate.

TRUMP BUMPER STICKER

We continue to see the hate, bigotry, xenophobia that has been a product of the presidential candidate for the GOP.

Advances have been made in many of the social issues that have been in contention for many years.

This is one that touches me very personally.

Too close for comfort.

There’s no way that I can stand with this particular ‘man’.

I know my choice!

My main concern now is what could happen after November 8th.

An open Pandora’s Box, of this caliber, is very hard to close.

Trump bumper sticker supports confederate flag beating up LGBT flag

A sticker supporting Trump’s presidency has been released and it shows a stick figure filled in with the confederate flag beating up another stick figure filled in with the pride flag.

They are described simply as ‘LGBT Rainbow Flag Kicking Confederate Flag Decal’.

Xenophobia is the fear of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange

Xenophobia can manifest itself in many ways involving the relations and perceptions of an in-group towards an out-group, including a fear of losing identity, suspicion of its activities, aggression, and desire to eliminate its presence to secure a presumed purity.

Homophobia is dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people

Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT).

It has been defined as contempt, prejudice, aversion, hatred or antipathy, may be based on irrational fear, and is often related to religious beliefs.

PEPE THE FROG

Pepe the Frog has been labelled an “online hate symbol” by the Anti-Defamation League, placing it with the swastika, Confederate flag, and the KKK’s burning cross.

The “alt-right” (a group that sits at the crossover of 4Chan and neo-nazism) has adopted the cartoon frog as an unofficial icon and white supremacist have added Trump hair to the frog as they endorse his candidacy.

Donald Trump Jr. has tweeted that he is ‘honored to be grouped with’ Pepe, proving the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

CONFEDERATE FLAG

The “Confederate flag,” as it is colloquially referred to, was the flag used in battle by the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War.

The actual flag of the Confederate States of America featured red and white stripes offset by a blue canton (a term that usually describes a rectangular block in the upper-left corner of a flag) and white stars. The battle flag came into use in 1861, when Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard complained that the flag of the Confederacy appeared too similar to the American flag on the battlefield.

The battle flag, designed by secessionist William Porcher Miles, was incorporated into the second design of the Confederate flag and was also adopted as the Navy Jack, in 1863. The design remained a part of the Confederate flag until the fall of the Confederacy in 1865.

The origins and symbolism of the flag are the subject of heated debate.

The flag has long been divisive.

Descendants of Confederate soldiers who served in the Civil War argue that the flag is an emblem of their heritage. Others say it carries an insignia that is inextricably linked to racism and hate, especially since it has been adopted by many neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups.
