Respect existence or expect resistance

Respect existence or expect resistance

The day is here, and it's not going well for Donald Trump. Turnout was lousy, he has already violated the Constitution, Queer activists blocked the entrance to his inauguration, and he now has a job he's royally unprepared for

Fittingly, Trump began his day listening to a sermon from an Islamophobic, anti-LGBTQ preacher, proving that, yep, this really is going to be as bad as we thought.

Trump is violating the Constitution he is promising to uphold and protect. Watch the video here.


Reading List

An Austrian far-right party founded by Nazis is in D.C. for political meetings. You read that right.

When many Trump supporters arrived in D.C., they were greeted by a massive projection of quotes — from sexual assault survivors.

Religious conservatives didn't shame Trump in 2016. They probably won't in 2017.


Soundbite

"By attacking the "Conscience of the Congress," Trump has served notice to all people of conscience that the time to prepare for moral resistance is now."

 — Rev. William Barber III
