As the world reels from President Trump’s disaster of a press conference earlier today the state of facts are now (somehow?) in question. The ideas of love, inclusion, and identity politics have been thrown out in favor of a repressive authoritarian agenda. This strange state of affairs can easily cause a dizzying reality crisis for many people but we’re hear to tell you that there is hope.
We know it sounds cliché but keep resisting. There’s already incredible movements out there like the upcoming March For Science, role models like Killer Mike, and the comedy of Saturday Night Live. If we channel the progressive things that we love, we can use that love as a weapon to empower us against the politics of fear.
YouTuber Dax is here to preach the good word of love with this new spoken word video. He urges viewers to consider the implications of the emotion and that a commitment to the passionate pursuit of change can have a profound impact. He urges viewers that, yes, we are the way forward.
Reject Donald Trump’s irrational politics of fear. Don’t fall victim to the ideas being perpetrated around Washington. The new administration is scared of change, scared of difference, and scared of you. Show them you’re not afraid by embracing their ignorance with love and inclusion. Love isn’t something we say, it’s a way we behave and love trumps hate.
