What Anti-Trump Message Would You Put on a Protest Sign?
Tomorrow, Donald Trump is coming to Bangor, Maine. I live pretty close to Bangor, so I’ll be there too. I feel very strongly that Donald Trump’s brand of leadership is very dangerous and must be visibly resisted. On the other hand, there are certain kinds of protest against Trump — especially violent protest — that are not just counterproductive but corrosive. I can guarantee you that I won’t be engaged in violent protest tomorrow. I will be exercising my right to assembly and free speech, holding a sign outside the convention center where Trump will be speaking.
As I hold my sign, there will be a question of messaging. Some anti-Trump messages (crude, divisive) might actually help Trump in his campaign. I’d like to carry a sign that is concise, thoughtful, principled and helpful in the effort to resist the rise of Donald Trump.
What should my sign say? I’d appreciate any sincere suggestions you might have.
