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.

“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.”

RESPECT IS EARNED 

The day after!

These words and Lawrence O’Donnell’s video express my feelings and sentiments exactly.

I will not normalize this man ever!

Count me among the resistance

I will NOTCome Together” for a man so wholly unqualified as Mr. Trump, a man who assaults my friends, my loved ones and the very social fabric upon which our democracy is bound.

I will NOT respect a man who so thoroughly disrespected President Obama with his racist conspiracy theories.

I will NOT respect someone who campaigned on open racism and bigotry and won because our idiotic system allows the person with the most votes at the end of the day to lose sometimes.

I will NOT “hope he fails” as Limbaugh said of Obama when he was elected because I know when an American President fails so does America, but I understand that Von Clownstick is not like George W. Bush or John McCain or Mitt Romney who were all far better men than he is. I will not hope he fails because I am certain he shall.

I will NOT normalize this man no matter what anyone tells me.
