As Trump’s dreaded inauguration rapidly approaches, progressives are preparing their grand finale of anti-Trump activism. Numerous respected politicians including congresswomyn Maxine Waters and civil rights hero John Lewis have accused Trump of directly working for the Russians, and have courageously called for his impeachment. And as if things couldn’t get any worse, Trump has been involved in yet another sex scandal, in this case one so grotesque that I cannot even report it. Nevertheless, Trump has decided to push ahead with the inauguration, so we as progressives need to be ready to disrupt it. Below are five suggestions for making Trump’s inauguration an unforgettable failure.
Block Surrounding Highways
Black Lives Matter have perfected the art of blocking highways, which has generated much good will and sympathy for their movement. We need to take highway blocking to the next level in order to truly inconvenience attendees of the inauguration. If we manage to block key organizers and performers from attending, this could grind the ceremony to a halt.
Drown Out The Event With Megaphones
For too long, progressives have sat on the sidelines and watched America succumb to right wing bigotry, and now is the time for our voices to be heard. We need to heckle Trump from all directions, using megaphones to drown out the speakers and performers and generate maximum chaos.
People who willingly attend Trump’s inauguration are deplorable and should be socially shamed while making their way to the inauguration. We need to be blunt with our moral judgments and tell Trump supporters to their faces that they are terrible human beings and the scum of the earth. After being publicly humiliated, many attendees will feel horrible about themselves and won’t be able to enjoy the inauguration.
Infiltrate The Crowd With Protesters
This has proven to be an effective strategy for disrupting Trump rallies, forcing security to elbow their way through dense crowds to find the offending protester, only to see another one pop up on the other side of the arena. We need step up our game for this ceremony, and strategically place protesters throughout the arena to create maximum hassle for security and prolong the delays to the event.
Throw Unpleasant Objects At Attendees
Many progressives have been floating the idea of throwing water bombs filled with foul liquids into the crowds. This will ruin peoples’ attire and force them to miss the inauguration, wrecking their day and teaching them an important lesson that they will never forget.
Some progressives worry that off-duty military and law enforcement, bikers and militias are planning to defend Trump and his supporters from our protesters. However I highly doubt that these people are as well versed as ours in the art of guerrilla activism, and their efforts will no doubt be in vain. It’s time for us to truly step up our game and show Trump what we are made of by making this the greatest exercise in progressive activism the world has ever seen.
