In keeping with the RSNR theme, news you only wish was fake but isn’t, comes this gem.
The Left is trying to organize a protest strike on Donald Trump’s inauguration. They are calling out to their comrades in cause in the entertainment and show business. Combine that with a fundraiser for their many leftist organizations, like Planned Parenthood.
Leave it to former Clinton labor secretary, Robert Reich, to concoct the grand idea and lead the charge. They hope to get SNL character assassin Alec Baldwin to MC.
Former Secretary of Labor Proposes ‘Freedom Concert’ To Overshadow Inauguration
by Lindsey Ellefson | December 19th, 2016 | Mediaite
Robert Reich is a beloved author, blogger, and professor who was once the Secretary of Labor. He has over 1 million fans on Facebook and regularly has posts gain quick and sizable amounts of interaction, including shares. Here’s a recent example of a post that really took off:
The Trump people are upset that the only musicians willing to perform at the Trump inauguration are Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.
Someone just suggested to me a televised “freedom concert” to air at the same time as the inauguration — with huge celebrities like Beyoncé and Jay Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, and so on. Alec Baldwin MC’s the event, playing Trump as he does on SNL.
Presto. The Trump inauguration loses all the TV ratings.
Basically, no one watches it.
Even better, the proceeds of the freedom concert go to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, NAACP, Common Cause, CAIR, IRAP, SPLC, Environmental Defense Fund, Human Rights Campaign Fund, MoveOn, Economic Policy Institute, Inequality Media, and GLAD.
What do you think?
Someone seems to be having inaugural blues. They started a Change.UG petition.
How ironic that a former Labor Secretary is calling out a strike on the inauguration. How many things are weird about that?
A protest strike and fundraiser — two things the Left is skilled at, besides wasting money. Combined into one with their anti-Trump fervor and voila. Maybe they’ll hand out LSD as well? Nothing is off the table. “Freedom Concert,” that’s a hoot. Sounds like a plan.
There could be some problems though, since many celebrity activists already said they are leaving the country if Trump was elected. They could even be planning on leaving that day because it would be the last chance before Trump takes office.
Well, maybe enough stragglers will stay behind to entertain the masses. They will also have to hit up the celebs for money before they take it and depart our shores.
I thought what a shame they can’t get Obama to come, but he will be busy on that day.
