100 Days of Protest Theater


Another day, another protest. Over the past weekend various left-wing groups coalesced to make their way down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. for what organizers dubbed “The People’s Climate March.”

Counted among the activist crowds were two of the more well known leftist faces, Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio and former Vice President Al Gore.

As is emblematic of these types of events, a few hundred related marches and/or rallies were staged around the country. Lurking behind the protest events was left-wing billionaire and ubiquitous donor to subversive organizations George Soros.

For over 20 years, Soros has been funding far-left wing political movements in the US and abroad via his Open Society Foundations, the apparent purpose of which is to spread ideas that run counter to basic American principles.

While mainstream media characterize events of this kind as grassroots movements, reports indicate otherwise. In the 14-year period from 2000 to 2014, Soros provided more than $36 million to 18 of the 55 organizations listed as members of the event’s “steering committee,” according to the Media Research Center. He also funded post-election protests in November 2016 and gave tens of millions to Black Lives Matter. And Soros was, of course, a big financial backer of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign.

In what perhaps was intended to be the last sour grapes expression from liberals over their unanticipated loss last November, the climate march was strategically scheduled for the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Ignored by those evaluating President Trump’s first 100 days was the surreptitious tactic of using themed staged events in an attempt to manipulate the minds of the American people.

Ever since President Trump’s inauguration, the mainstream media have been cheerleading each and every protest. The broadcast airwaves have been flooded with reports, commentary, and video footage of people taking to the streets, chanting childish slogans, waving cliché-ridden signs, and donning inane outfits.

The country had to endure Inauguration Day protests on January 20 and an event called “The Women’s March on Washington” on January 21, which unveiled the now-infamous pink headgear as a supposed symbol of resistance.

In late January, almost immediately after the president issued his first executive order to institute a temporary travel moratorium from nations that the Obama administration had determined to be terrorist hotbeds, protesters gathered seemingly spontaneously at airports all over the country.

On February 16, the event du jour was titled “A Day Without Immigrants,” where the distinction between legal and illegal  immigrants was ignored as immigrants were encouraged to participate in a strike and refuse to show up for work.

Liberal complainers used February 20 to hold a protest labeled “Not My President’s Day,” a self-explanatory event with a singular purpose. Agitators also showed up at town hall meetings held by GOP congressional members to infiltrate and appropriate the gatherings.

On March 8 a protest called “A Day Without a Woman” prompted women to quit working in order to commemorate International Women’s Day.

An event termed “The Native Nations Rise March” occurred on March 10 to purportedly bring attention to indigenous people, which was strategically timed to correspond with the president’s job-creating executive orders that allowed construction of the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines.

LGBTQ activists spent April 1 at a dance protest in front of Ivanka Trump’s home; this is the same group that had held a similar event at Vice President Mike Pence’s house prior to the inauguration.

Beginning on April 4 and continuing through May 1, The Movement for Black Lives launched a 28-day program, which included participation in rallies, teach-ins, and protests around the country.

Left-leaners used Tax Day to stir like-minded groups to organize a march on April 15 demanding that President Trump release his tax returns, a favorite liberal holdover issue from the campaign with which so-called progressives have been obsessed.

April 22 brought yet another protest with another theme. Labeled “The March for Science,” it took place on Earth Day. The co-chair of the event was Bill Nye, an individual with no formal training in the science subjects of which he professes to be an expert. Rather, he is a former stand-up comedian-turned-actor, who became a TV host of the program “Bill Nye The Science Guy.”

Meandering into the science fiction realm, Nye recently suggested that the government should punish people who have too many children, and he did so while hosting his new Netflix show ironically titled “Bill Nye Saves the World.”

The People’s Climate March is just the latest in a string of theatrical protests, staged by election result deniers who are seeking to undermine to ability of the administration to move the country in a freedom loving direction.
