Protesting Trump

The Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra posted a “Fuck Trump Reportback” about protesting Trump in Richmond, VA. I see how this is useful for organizing experience and getting people involved, but I don’t necessarily understand the point or see the strategy of these protests. Trump’s talking. So what? The protests just bring more attention to it and I don’t understand the immediate goal. Get into a fight? Prevent the event? To what end? He’s going to be the Republican nominee, let the asshole talk and his asshole supporters listen to him. We’re not going to prevent politicians from being elected, so why focus on the one we dislike more? If this is not going to be repeated ad nauseam going forward, fine. But it seems like that might be the case.

Let’s not let the presidential election eat up all activity.
