Or did you go yell and scream and act hysterical in front of the White House, or at your local airport?
Evidently for the third straight weekend, there were nationwide protests:
The latest presidential tweets come on an afternoon when MSNBC and CNN were featuring heavy coverage of the nation’s third consecutive weekend of anti-Trump protests. Today’s rallies in New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia, Miami and West Palm Beach (heading to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Florida resort, or at least as close as possible) erupted in response to a week of legal back-and-forth over the president’s exec-ordered travel ban.....
In New York, the crowds gathered near the Stonewall Inn, the historic West Village bar that’s become a symbol of gay rights. The afternoon rally was organized to show LGBTQ solidarity with immigrants and refugees targeted in Trump’s executive order.
That last bit is actually sort of funny. It's nice that the LGBTQ crowd is showing such "solidarity" with the would be Muslim immigrants, but you can't help but wonder, do they have any idea how the Muslims feel about them?
In any case, the only conclusion I can draw is that for some people, yelling and screaming and feeling self-righteous is fun. Human nature is such that it's hard to get people to do things -- especially in their free time -- that they don't enjoy.
So they must find the protests fulfilling.
It's not hard to imagine. You go down to the local gathering spot, get together with a lot of like-minded people, and rage against Trump to your heart's content. It's a little reminiscent of primal scream therapy.
Maybe you're a little hoarse afterward, but you probably feel a lot calmer. And filled with inner peace. Which, judging from a lot of their behavior, is not an emotion they're particularly well acquainted with.
For instance, I bet this woman, in this now famous video, felt a lot better after her session.
