People from all spheres will need to resist Trump and work to build coalitions against him if there is to be any realistic hope of stopping him from enacting his horrific agenda. That’s why this guide to organizing against Trump has gone so viral in progressive circles…if you are interesting in working against him, you must read this.
And it’s already quite amazing that many celebrities are boycotting Trump’s inauguration and refusing to contribute to the festivities. But it’s even more hilarious that he can’t even muster together high school marching bands who are willing to celebrate our new Clown in Chief.
NBC Washington reports: “Ballou High School’s Majestic Marching Knights performed Destiny’s Child’s “Lose My Breath” at George W. Bush’s second inaugural parade in 2005, and stepped along Pennsylvania Avenue as they played James Brown’s “I Got You (I Feel Good)” at Barack Obama’s second inaugural parade eight years later.
But the beloved band decided to take a break in January and not apply to play in the inaugural parade after several other recent performances, the principal said. Dunbar High School’s band marched in Obama’s first inauguration in 2009 but the school will sit this one out because they are rebuilding the band, the principal said.
Eastern High School also chose not to participate, the principal said, without elaborating. Like in D.C., many bands in the surrounding counties opted not to apply to participate in Trump’s inauguration. No bands in Arlington County or Prince George’s County public schools applied, according to district representatives. University of Maryland, College Park, which played in 2013, did not apply. A Fairfax County schools spokesman was not aware of any schools that had applied. And a Montgomery County schools spokeswoman did not have information available.”
