Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore wants more Democrats to fight President-elect Donald Trump’s administration, and outlined a list of things they can do on his Facebook page Tuesday.
Moore’s post aims to unite Democrats around several key grassroots campaigns the filmmaker thinks would be most effective against Trump in the days running up to the inauguration.
“It’s been seven weeks since Hillary beat Trump by nearly 3 million votes but lost the presidency to him. So if your head is still spinning from that mindf***, or you can’t quite believe a malignant narcissist will now sit in the Oval Office, or if you are simply still working your way through the 17 stages of grief, then I am here to say to you, ‘There’s no crying in TrumpLand — Let’s get to work!’” All hands on deck,” Moore wrote on Facebook.
“Brush your yourself off and let’s get busy because: a) All hope is not lost; b) There are more of us than there are of them; and c) The roadside is littered with the ended careers of self-absorbed, narcissistic politicians whose arrogance led them to do things that caused their early resignation or impeachment. Don’t think that can’t happen here,” Moore asserted.
In order to hasten Trump’s impeachment, Moore listed five things supporters need to do. The first is standard political fare: Supporters need to go to their congressman’s office and demand they fight Trump at every turn and not work with the president-elect on any issue.
Moore also wants his supporters to write to the Democratic National Committee and demand Rep. Keith Ellison get elected to chair of the DNC.
“He is the future and everyone else is the past. Here’s what the old guard gave us: TWICE in 16 years the Democratic candidate WON the vote for President but LOST the White House. Incredible! This has to stop! Ellison and the progressive wing of the party must take us forward. Keith has the backing of Bernie Sanders and myself, but also the endorsement of some of the old guard who’ve come around to see the error of past ways (Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, etc.).”
Next on the list: Supporters need to form a “rapid response team,” which will go to fundraisers, protests, and any other local political event at the drop of the hat if they can be construed as anti-Trump in nature.
The most interesting point in Moore’s screed is his call for supporters to travel to Washington, D.C., for Inauguration Day for the express purpose of protesting Trump’s ascension to the White House.
“We need millions in the streets in DC — and that’s what it looks like it’s shaping up to be. The big march will be the day after the Inauguration – the Million Women March on January 21st,” he wrote.
Moore calls for readers to take the day off, personally charter a bus into D.C., and protest in one of several marches planned for the inauguration.
Finally, Moore wants supporters to run for office, going so far as to offer to chair individual campaigns himself if needed.
“You know you can do this. We have no choice. We’ve left it up to others – yes, Democrats – and they are inept and continual losers. Haven’t you had enough? Run for office, any office,” Moore concluded.
Moore used his Facebook page several times during the course of the 2016 presidential campaign, most recently to call Democrats to the polls to vote for Clinton. In that post, Moore warned that Trump wouldn’t easily lose the election, one of the few pundits to actually call the election with any degree of accuracy.
