I’m assembling a post full of anti-Trump resources. Can you help?

notmypresident

So I’m putting together a page (or possibly two) of anti-Trump resources, and I could use your help over the next few days. (No need think about any of this stuff today, obviously!)

I’m looking for a bunch of different things:

Information and graphics to help make the case that Trump’s victory is illegitimate, based on:

Hillary’s big win the popular vote; the ways in which the electoral college effectively overcounts the votes of rural whites and those in swing states and undercounts those of minorities; dirty tricks, from Russian hacking and wikileaks to the machinations of Comey and pro-Trump FBI agents (I’m especially interested in stuff talking about Trump’s connections to the dirty tricksters, as well as his public encouragement and exploitation of leaked emails and the like).

Information on protests and other anti-Trump activism:

Both local and national (and on the internet). Links to help people who want to get involved.

Information and resources to help people deal with Trump-related anxiety, etc. 

Information on Trump’s massive conflicts of interest, and whether or not this could rise to the level of an impeachable offense

Information on his worldwide business dealings. Examples of the conflicts that have already become an issue even though he’s not yet in the White House. The issues raised by his plan to have his kids run his business — despite their continued involvement in the transition and their attendance at meetings with foreign leaders.

Information on Trump’s connections to white supremacists

The possibility that he engaged in “pay to play” for favorable coverage in Breitbart. Connections to far-right parties and activists in Europe. Examples of horrible stuff said and done by his white supremacist supporters. His refusal to clearly and specifically distance himself from these people — in person, on camera.

Trump’s compulsive lying; his vanity; his obsession with revenge; his encouragement of violence at his rallies; his flip-flops, mood swings, erratic behavior; his susceptibility to flattery; his promulgation of fake news and discredited claims

Trump’s racism and misogyny

Trump’s attacks on Muslims and Latinos. His record of discrimination against black tenants. His long history of misogyny. The accusations of sexual assault raised against him.

Historical parallels between Trump and fascist/authoritarian leaders in the past

Information about Trump’s unwillingness to follow traditional norms of presidential behavior and/or do his job

His massive ignorance about this country and the world and unwillingness/inability to learn. His attempts to dodge the press and threats against press freedom. His refusal to attend daily intelligence briefings. His refusal to make his tax returns public.

Trump’s terrible advisors and allies; the Russian connections

Further reading on Trump

Ranging from the terrible things he’s said about women, to his bankruptcies and sleazy business practices, to his embrace of assorted conspiracy theories over the years. I’m generally looking for longer articles here, but short primers on some issues are welcome as well.

Further reading on fascism. authoritarianism, right-wing movements and media

Information about Pence, particularly his anti-LGBT policies

Funny stuff

Recommended publications, writers, podcasters, etc to help make sense of Trump

Anything else you can think of that I’m forgetting

Thanks!

Not sure if someone else has already linked to these, but just in case, Right Wing Watch did a compilations of all of his lies and promotion of conspiracy theories:

David,

Someone further up the thread mentioned citing conservative-leaning sources. I’d like to try to offer some U.S. national security/foreign policy related resources. I’ll start with this link to a piece at War on the Rocks which came out a few days before the election:

http://warontherocks.com/2016/11/trolling-for-trump-how-russia-is-trying-to-destroy-our-democracy

It focuses less on Trump than on the overall information warfare campaign that the Russians have been running against the U.S. for some time now. It also focuses less on the act of hacking U.S. information systems and more on how the Russians distribute that information so that it gets picked up by other actors prone to disseminate it. It also contains a nice graphic to help illustrate the process.

Looks like some states are actually trying to fight against Jill Stein’s efforts to have a full recount. Also looks like Trump actually has a means to thwart said efforts, all according to this news piece:

HERE

That said, please keep helping Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton by supporting the efforts here at Jill Stein’s page. A bunch of information on the Recount if you check the links above the Donation Goal posting:

HERE

I really believe we can achieve something if we keep fighting this together!

I don’t know if this counts as an anti-Trump resource; but it’s interesting nevertheless.

In the meantime… who’s in favor of calling Trump, in contexts relating to climate change and environmental destruction, Agent Orange ?

My plan is to rotate between my personal favorites such as: Trumplethinskin, Mango Mussolini, Cheating Cheeto, Gold-plated Groper, and whatever else comes along that pleases me. These, of course, are for other contexts.

I like Agent Orange, it sounds like a bumbling secret operative who doesn’t know he’s being used to prop up fossil fuel and destroy the world.

I love them all! I also love the idea of using variations of “Trumpy/Trumpster” (Which someone suggested).

Heck; I gotta System!…..
* TRUMPY (noun, adjective) – 1. Mr. Agent Orange himself (‘Donald Trump is Trumpy….he can do stupid things!’). 2. The qualities of Mr. Agent Orange (‘That person/comment/thing is really trumpy!’).
* TRUMPSTER (noun) – 1. Someone like Trump. A single follower of Trump. A single person with Trump-like mindset. A “Deplorable” (‘David Duke, Pat Robertson and Jim-Bob Who Wears that “Trump That Bitch” T-Shirt are all Trumpsters).
* TRUMPETTE (noun) – 1. A female Trumpster of the ‘Vapid Republican Sex Kitten’ variety (‘Scottie Nell Hughes is a real Trumpette!’).
* UNCLE TRUMPUS (noun) – 1. A POC male Trumpster (‘Ben Carson and Mario Gutierrez are total Uncle Trumpuses’) [Based on the term ‘Uncle Ruckus’ after the self-hating black The Boondocks character].
* TRUMPAROSA (noun) – 1. A female Uncle Trumpus (‘Tila Tequila; You’re such a Trumparosa!’). [After black Trump-supporter and past The Apprentice contestant, Omarosa].
* TRUMPAROSETTE (noun) – 1. A Trumpster ‘babe’ who’s also a POC (Again, Tila Tequila). [Portmanteau of ‘Trumpette’ and ‘Trumparosa’].
* TRUMPSTER-DUMPSTER (noun) – 1. Plural of Trumpster. 2. A group of Trumpsters. 3. Where Trumpsters come from. 4. An organization/group that supports Trump (A Trump rally. Trump’s companies. Trump voters as a whole. Hate groups that agree with or like Trump.).

I don’t like Trump. But I dislike extreme partisanship and divisiveness even more.

@ Spuki,

I’m rather new here, but your categories strike me as both inappropriate and not terribly useful.

Moving on…
I recall reading that several members of this community are academics. Some of you may be interested in contributing to the project discussed here:

Upworthy co-founder Eli Pariser is leading a group of online volunteers hunting for ways to respond to the spread of fake news

The story includes a link to a Google Doc where these ideas are being brainstormed.

Okay. I was goofy. I see it now.

I thought I was clever. I wasn’t.

Anyhoo….I just don’t get why it SEEMS that so many are turned-on by Authoritarianism. Do they LIKE being oppressed.

The people in Western Europe had it so good! Why reject all that Progressive stuff that made their countries awesome for mediocrity and oppression?

Isn’t the education system in Europe better? Aren’t people in Western Europe supposed to be smarter? If this is all about Muslims, surely these intelligent people with a better education who understand that kooky terrorists do not speak for all Muslims.

No! I refuse to believe that Fascism is getting more popular. The Fascists are just louder and make the effort to get out the vote.

If everybody voted….the bigots would lose everything!

Trump won because many didn’t bother to vote because they were so sure of Hillary’s inevitable win!

Well; Trump’s “win” has awaken a MASSIVE SLEEPING PROGRESSIVE GIANT and said giant’s gonna get serious and crush a bunch of impotent Fascist Authoritarian heads.

IF YOU WANT A TRUE AND MORE ACCURATE VISION OF THE FUTURE, IMAGINE A BIRKENSTOCK STOMPING ON A FASCISTS FACE….FOREVER! – The Divine, The Universe and The Law of Return and Law of Karma

It’s time to get busy! We have the vast demographics behind us! Time to learn from our mistakes, learn about the opposition, learn from the TheoFascist playbook and get to work!

We can do this! WE CAN TURN AMERICA BLUE!

Remember…..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjxSCAalsBE

….even if you don’t believe this stuff and see it as “mumbo jumbo”, the fact is is that the world has….generally….been becoming more open, peaceful and just. This is the Springtime of the “Great Year”. Of COURSE there will be backlashes and pockets of regression.

….But in the end, it’ll all even out.

Here’s a recent story on Politico about one of Trump’s possible picks for Secretary of State:

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/donald-trump-david-petraeus-231909

The comparison between Clinton and Petraeus was heavily reported on in the buildup to the election, but the fact that Trump is considering Petraeus for Secretary of State in spite of what he’s done…

“Petraeus admitted lying to the FBI, which distinguished his case from Clinton’s and made his case a good deal worse,” Aftergood added. “I think once again President-elect Trump is revealed as a rather hypocritical figure.”

Ya think?

Over 20 companies have already blacklisted Breitbart from their advertising. Follow https://twitter.com/slpng_giants and tweet at advertisers to reduce ad funding on Breitbart.

I’m also giving up Amazon.com for a while. Since it’s on the list of businesses that sell Trump junk.

I loved shopping at Amazon but I think I can live without it. I can shop a whole bunch of other places to get the same things.

Anyone know a good place where I can buy Music and DVDs?

Also; Can you convert Amazon Kindle files into PDF? I know of some ebook stores but I want to be able to read my ebooks from a lot of places in one device and not be dependent on Kindle.

Instead of buying an ebook device, I’ll get myself a mini-notebook computer. That would work better IMHO.

Sorry if my last post before this one was a bit “excitable”.

I’m happy that Breitbart’s losing sponsors!

The best way to “Fight The Power” is to “starve the beast”!

@ Kat Knitt,
Seems an interesting idea. Any feedback yet on the problem that some of the ads reported have been placed by the user’s browser cookies, not the company itself? Is there is a mechanism for companies to tell browser advertising sellers they don’t want to advertise on certain sites?

Also, couldnt this drive up Breitbart’s apparent popularity if people go to it to find advertisers to lobby, and actually drive their ad revenue up?

IN-YOUR-FACE REPUBLICAN CORRUPTION AND FAILURE TO WORK FOR THE PEOPLE! TRUMP AND HIS THUGS WILL DESTROY ALL OF THE LAST 8 YEARS OF PROGRESS, EVEN WORSE THAN GEORGE W AND RICHARD NIXON. LOGIC AND REASON, YET THE PTL CLUB AND MORONS CONTINUE TO SCREAM “LOCK HER UP” IF WE SAW HIS TAXES AS PROMISED, THEY WOULD HAVE TO LOCK HIM UP. YOU CAN ARGUE LOGIC AND REASON WHILE PLAYING CHESS WITH A PIGEON, HOWEVER HE WILL STILL SHIT ON THE BOARD AND STRUT AROUND AS THOUGH HE WON!

FANTASTIC COHERENT SPEECH. BUT WITH ALL THE LIES AND IN YOUR FACE CORRUPT THUGS APPOINTED TO HIS ADMINISTRATION, I WILL BELIEVE HIS SINCERITY WHEN IT HAPPENS. THEN I’LL PROBABLY SHIT IN MY PANTS FROM THE SHOCK AND SURPRISE! THE ONLY PROTESTERS YOU CAN HEAR IS ONE MORON YELLING “LOCK HER UP” (WHILE BUSH “LOST” 22 MILLION EMAILS) MEANING ALL THE SANE PROTESTERS HAVE NOW BEEN TRANSPORTED TO SYBERIA IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS. IT IS SO OBVIOUS THAT FREEDOM OF SPEECH WAS TOTALLY SQUASHED IN THE SAME WAY HE SHUTS DOWN AND THREATENED CNN OR ANY REPORTER WHO ASKS THE TOUGH QUESTIONS!

I freely give you my idea which I would like to be done on twitter until he notices. I’ve been doing a series of posts, all of which begin with

The Emperor has no….

The first was

The Emperor has no CROWDS!

As you can imagine, once you start thinking of endings for that, the list can get very long indeed. You can look on my page for examples.
