Remember like a million years ago when Trump went to Russia, kissed Putin’s ass, embarrassed America, and generally acted like the senile old fool that he is? Well, the day that he dragged his pathetic ass home, American patriots started protesting outside the White House.
Now, America’s corporate media has done about 800 gajillion interviews with every odd Trump supporter you can find in every podunk town with a greasy-spoon diner, discovering the incredible fact that Trump’s brain-dead supporters like Trump. But, somehow, they never manage to spend much time with the many, many people, from all corners of America, who have shown up EVERY NIGHT FOR MORE THAN 80 NIGHTS to protest Trump’s humiliating capitulation to Putin.
It’s even possible that there are members of DC’s Pagan community involved in the protests. One of them may have recently written:
You are cordially invited to the #KremlinAnnex protest happening every day from 7:30pm-9pm in front of the White House.
The protests started spontaneously after the Helsinki summit and have continued for more than 80 days straight, rain or shine. (We hope to be finished before it snows!)
Every night features local musicians such as EmmaG, AceOno, and SteelOSoul Music, and speeches by protest regulars, or guests like Kristen Mink, Patricia Okoumou, Michael Avenatti, and Alyssa Milano. We’ve had a number of Special Event nights: a mariachi band cheered us all up, Rosie O’Donnell brought Broadway singers to entertain us, Kathy Griffin roasted the President, and recently, Sing Out Louise filked popular songs with a political twist. Many protesters go all out, with creative signs and costumes.
The mood might be joyous but the message is serious: Trump betrayed us at Helsinki. He’s the head of a kleptocratic government. We won’t stop protesting until he’s removed from office.
If you’re angry about Russia interfering in our elections, if you’re upset by children’s separation from their parents, if you’re devastated that survivors have been silenced once more, or if you’re just dismayed by the direction our country’s headed, please join us.
All are welcome. We’d love to see you there.
PS-We were recently covered by the DCist:
Interestingly, it appears that the Kremlin Annex protests have gotten under Trump’s skin.
Now, the Trump administration proposes to dramatically limit the right to demonstrate near the White House and on the National Mall, including in ways that would violate court orders that have stood for decades. The proposal would close 80 percent of the White House sidewalk, put new limits on spontaneous demonstrations, and open the door to charging fees for protesting.
Fee requirements could make mass protests like Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic 1963 March on Washington and its “I have a dream” speech too expensive to happen.
I’d like to ask my readers to do three things. First, comment on the proposed policy and encourage the government to drop it. Second, if you live anywhere near DC or can travel to DC, join the nightly Kremlin protest. Third, do what Witches do. Light some incense. Burn a candle. Bury a beef tongue at the crossroads. Sprinkle graveyard dirt over a poppet. Call down the white magic of poetry and the black magic which is anything that works.
Because fuck these fuckers. I am tired of them.
