[Written before the inauguration]
If you oppose Trump, don’t watch any channel covering the inauguration in any way, not even news (to lower Nielsen ratings in the US). But don’t do this to be petty and hate on him, don’t generalise and make asumptions about everything Trump. Show your opposition in a reasonable way. Oppose cabinet staff picks you disagree with, protest, phone your congresspeople, boycott companies that endorse hate. Blindly opposing everything the Trump administration does will make everyone else who opposes Trump look like petty obstructionists who only care about partisan politics and don’t care about what happens to the country. Don’t give the racists the justification they want to discredit us. They opposed Obama because they were racist, we oppose Trump because he’s racist, or at least because he uses racism. Populists can’t be trusted because they by definition mislead us, but don’t let that make you cynical and close minded. Trump might do some good or OK things, so let him. When he tries to do bad things, oppose him fiercely but reasonably. Acknowledge good things, ask for bills to be fixed instead of just thrown out, if possible.
At the same time, don’t let his campaign of hate and ignorance, and his unqualified, morally questionable, right wing fanatics, go unnoticed. Apathy and confidence are all that is needed for those in charge to go unchecked. Be vigilant and speak out when it matters.
