Any thoughts? I’m away to Black Sabbath this evening – as I said elsewhere, seems oddly appropriate.

Just at a meeting where the lone american said he’d been talking to his sister back home and she had been moaning about Trump, he countered with Brexit, which she thought it was minor compared with what the US was about to undergo. He countered with ‘trump is for 4/8 years; Brexit is forever’

Revellers in Moscow and elsewhere gathered for celebrations as bar and club owners sought to cash in on public excitement….
A hundred Trump sympathisers, nationalist activists and spin doctors gathered at a hipster party location several hundred metres away from the Kremlin to celebrate
The party was co-sponsored by the conservative Tsargrad TV channel, which is led by ultra-right ideologue Alexander Dugin

We’re screwed (the Trumps are already moving in to gut environmental and civil rights programs and offices inside the US civil service).

Also, I’m going to deck the next hipster Marxist too cool to give a shit about what Trump’s about to do.

“From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.”

“In using the slogan “America First”, Mr Trump has, wittingly or unwittingly, branded his protectionist foreign policy with the name of 1940s isolationist anti-Semetic national organisation that urged the US government to negotiate a peace deal with Adolf Hitler.”

Trump unapologetically seized upon the nationalist slogan that was most detested by our globalist elites, “America first!”

There already seems to be a sharp generational divide opening up among American Jews in the response to Trump. The groups like AIPAC and the ADL are willing to hold their nose for anything, it seems, in anticipation of 100% unconditional support for Netanyahu’s government (Abe Foxman of the ADL says that “to resist [Trump] and fight him is immature”) but they’re not carrying younger Jewish-Americans with them on that:

‘He also claimed the inauguration was not merely transferring power from one elected President to another, but was a transfer of power “from Washington DC and giving it back to you, the people”.’

Which right-wingers gave us that kind of anti-establishment empty rhetoric? The proto-fascists.

‘Too close and unthinking an allegiance to Washington has sometimes got British governments into trouble. Such difficulties seem likely only to multiply under President Donald Trump, an erratic nationalist who is already at odds with sections of America’s own foreign policy establishment.’-Linda Colley.

Did anyone else go to, or is going to, anti-Trump protests?

I went to the PBP one in Dublin yesterday. Well-attended, with speaks from the anti-racism and pro-choice movements. Heartening to see so many teenagers and students there-seems Trump has stirred them into action. One of the speakers gave a swipe at the IT for the disgraceful Nicholas Pell article.
