Flashback from Robert Gehl, how the Left “celebrated” Donald Trump’s election anniversary:
On November 8, exactly one year after the 2016 presidential election that saw Donald Trump sweep into office, leftists around the country will scream helplessly at the sky – literally.
With the rage and pent-up frustration still strong, Trump opponents plan to band together and “scream helplessly at the sky” — their words, not ours — and are organizing Facebook events to do exactly that.
In various cities around the country, thousands of people have signed up for the meaningless demonstrations. Almost 16,000 people will gather in Washington Square Park in New York City, 4,000 people signed up in Austin, 3,800 people signed up in Philadelphia, and 1,400 people signed up in Denver.
The idea originated in Boston, where tens of thousands will gather in the Boston Common, America’s oldest park, to scream at the sky.
“This administration has attacked everything about what it means to be American. Who wouldn’t feel helpless every day?” Boston organizer Johanna Schulman told Fox News. “Coming together reminds us that we are not alone, that we are part of an enormous community of activists who are motivated and angry, whose actions can make a difference.”
More than 33,000 people are attending the Boston scream-fest.
New York organizer Nathan Wahl said he thinks “we’re a bunch of exasperated people who want to feel connected.”
Philadelphia organizer Philadelphia United for Progress assured that they “know we’re not helpless.”
Fans in Philadelphia are encouraged to scream in solidarity from their own backyard if they cannot attend.
On the New York City page, they acknowledge the futility of the event.
“Join us cucks and snowflakes, safe spacers and libtards, as we enjoy a collective cathartic yell into the heavens about our current political establishment,” they write.
In a Medium post, Wahl pointed to a quote from Saturday Night Live: “I just want one day where I get a news alert that doesn’t scare the hell out of me.”
He added, “I can’t keep up with it all. Every time I think of the laundry list of social injustices on top of my own s**t like my actual laundry, I get overwhelmed.”
Poor guy, huh?
“So f*** me for thinking it’d be nice to yell about it,” he said.
He said the gesture was a “collective expression of frustration” and likened living in the U.S. today to “building Ikea furniture.”
The Medium post reads like an interrogation from a conservative. One question was: “So what? You’re just gonna scream for an hour?”
That would be insane and bad for your vocal chords. We’re definitely gonna get a good scream in, then we’ll have a moment of silence, then Joan Baez is gonna lead us in a mournful rendition of “Kumbaya” on her autoharp BECAUSE WE’RE ALL JUST A BUNCH OF LIBERAL STEREOTYPES.
Under the comment “I’m gonna go just to laugh at you,” Wahl writes:
As is your prerogative. It is a public park after all. Though I’m surprised to see you stepping foot into a public park, which is a decidedly socialist venue.
So if you want to see some grown-up crybabies, you know where to go on November 8. Bring pacifiers, but as Wahl said, “Make sure you have enough for the whole class. Maybe Gerber will sponsor us.”
