Strike4Democracy: National Day of Action to Push Back Against Assaults on Democratic Principles

[This came to us straight from Washington, DC and supports our earlier post by Dr. Lyle Rapacki. While we were thinking Obama didn't do anything but play golf for 8 years, he was actually using taxpayer money to organize anarchists across America to take down our government and our Constitution.  This will prove the be the biggest battle to keep the Republic since the years after Lincoln's assassination. Bigger than WWII because the enemy in that war was clear and wore the uniforms of the enemy.] 

On Friday, February 17, 2017, Strike4Democracy will coordinate over 100 strike actions across the United States, and beyond, to plan for a series of mass strikes to stand up for America’s democratic principles. As the nation suffers through ICE raids, travel bans, Trump’s mobilization on the border wall, as well as attacks on the rights of workers, women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and our environment, February 17th provides a beacon to those who are searching for a way to protect and defend our shared humanity. People across the country have begun to realize that we must diversify tactics, as protests and marches are only the first step. Strike4Democracy amplifies a new chapter of nonviolent resistance ushered in over the last six weeks.

We call on participants in Strike4Democracy to rise up in their local communities on February 17th to hold events that build towards a series of mass strikes. The first mass strike is planned on March 8, organized by International Women’s Day and The Women’s March. We also anticipate strikes on May Day and a heightening resistance throughout the summer.

Strike4Democracy’s message to the Administration and Congressional leaders is clear:

  • STOP the authoritarian assault on our fundamental, constitutional rights, the very principles that have truly made America great;
  • STOP attacking and victimizing women, Muslims, immigrants, racial and ethnic groups, the LGBTQ+ community, working families, journalists, and all who offer criticisms of the Administration’s policies including the U.S. judicial branch;
  • REALIZE that America’s true strength lies in the values of inclusivity not exclusivity.

[Editor: DO NOT be fooled by that last bullet point!  Inclusivity=multiculturalism=the end of the Republic.  NO COUNTRY in history has survived multiculturalism!  Period!  Remember we reported earlier that the progressive left has adopted the tea party model to fool ordinary citizens that they are part of the tea party itself. This is good strategy for them and must be combatted on every front. This is just one battle in the war against America waged by the progressives. The key phrase is in their title: Strike4Democracy.  Most people do NOT know we don't live in a democracy.  Democracy is two wolves and a lamb trying to decide what to have for dinner!  America is a REPUBLIC!!]

From AFA reader in DC: Obama has 30k plorganized across us

Sierra Vista FB Sierra Vista United for Equality, Feb 17 4-6 pm.   Take a look at their 'guide'. and their logo, above.  Remind you of the SLA in the 1960' should.

Our Mission

Sierra Vista United for Equality is a group of citizens from Sierra Vista and the surrounding areas of Cochise County united to resist attacks against justice, domestic tranquility, the national defense, our nation’s general welfare, and our personal liberty guaranteed to us by the Constitution of the United States of America. These attacks are currently exemplified by the agenda of ...Donald Trump and his extremist right-wing allies. We believe that an engaged citizenry can defend democratic norms, truth, respect for the United States Constitution, and simple decency.

To this purpose, we align ourselves with the principles outlined in the Indivisible Guide ( initiated by former Washington D.C. political staffers, whose “only goal is to help the real leaders on the ground who are resisting Trump’s agenda on their home turf.”

Here are the basic elements of the Indivisible Guide’s strategy:

Three targets:

Two senators and one congressperson: Let them know how you feel about every important issue that comes up. (So our targets are Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, and Representative Martha McSally.)

Four Tactics:

Become educated on issues of importance, and contact the targets via these means to convey our determination to have our representatives resist unacceptable aspects of the Trump agenda:

1. Town halls

2. Public events

3. Office visits

4. Calls

We believe that peaceful protest and direct engagement with lawmakers, especially in their own districts, can incentivize members of Congress to disregard party loyalty. In other words, political survival usually beats out leadership pleas to stick with unpopular policies. Collectively, an engaged citizenry can defend democratic norms, truth, respect for the Constitution and simple decency. (Some language borrowed from Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post: “How to resist Trump from both inside and out.”)

We attempt to follow these four rules for making our protests work (These rules are borrowed from Brian Resnic, Vox.)

1. Make the message as salient as possible: Make it stand out and get noticed.

2. Unite overlapping protest concerns under one banner: Don’t get too diffuse.

3. Pivot from talk to action: Put political pressure on politicians to address their concerns.

4. Be proactive: Protests in which demonstrators are trying to prevent an action from happening tend to be more effective than reactive protests, where people mobilize in response to an outrage.

According to a Harvard study, the actual effectiveness in protest comes mainly from organizing and energizing the protesters to take more effective political action. As Sarah Jaffe of Rolling Stone Magazine puts it,“Taking part in a protest can have a transformative effect on the people who get involved.”

Important Question: Can we sustain the energy for the long, ugly fights ahead?

Thanks jfreden. Notice they are not specific as to Trumps sins against the Constitution probably because they have never read or studied the Constitution  and probably have no clue what Trump is about either. This is right out of the Rules for Radicals, taking on the tea party model and goals but will turn them inside out while sounding so reasonable.  I take it you live in the Sierra Vista area. Have you seen any of this activity?  I believe this is promulgated by black lives matters and more than ever we need to support our local law enforcement.  Unless they are supporting this takeover of our United States of America.  These people have already succeeded in indoctrinating our kids while parents are busy working or doing other things.

These anarchist fools have no idea what rights they have, and they are trying to destroy the first, only, and possibly the last (if they get their way) nation on the planet to establish private individual rights superior to the arbitrary whims of kings and princes and neighborhood warlords ... and yes, superior to the violent tactics of anarchist fools who have no idea that temper tantrums impose no obligations on others beyond the obligation of self-defense against their violence.

(Note:  This is an attempt to ram through the "Second Bolshevik Revolution" they didn't get when the American people said "not no, but HELL NO!" to Hillary and elected Donald Trump.  I recommend they chill out before they discover the hard way that one of the rights Americans have is self-defense against violent hooligans.)

New Books added for you.

The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.
