DAILYKENN.com -- You know the left is in trouble when the whistle blowers come from the own ranks.
Writer Asawin Suebsaeng provides rock-solid evidence that the "spontaneous" airport protests following Trump's ban on travel from seven terrorist states were anything but spontaneous. They had been planned months in advance.
According to Suebsaeng the planning began November 9, the day after the presidential election. The far left was blindsided by Trump's win and scrambled to create a game plan. That plan included a rapid response to Trump's inevitable "extreme vetting" travel ban.
One organization leading the airport protests is called 'Make The Road New York.'
But to Make the Road New York, and the groups like it across the country, there was nothing “spontaneous” about it. As some observers and activists were quick to point out, these grassroots and professional organizers had been waiting and planning for this type of mass, direct action—ready-made to go viral on social media—ever since, well, Nov. 9. From the moment Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the general election, they’ve been anticipating and mapping out their battle plans for Trump’s orders on deportations, bans, and detention.
So when you heard about a large crowd at an airport in the past few days yelling catchy slogans like “F*** TRUMP, F*** PENCE, THIS COUNTRY’S BUILT ON IMMIGRANTS,” it was no “spontaneous” outpouring of support. It was the result of a lot of unseen work and man hours.
“It was a domino effect of rapid mobilization,” said Renata Pumarol, communications director at New York Communities for Change, which was also on the ground at JFK. “And going forward, we have our plans in place to resist Trump… and pressuring corporate Dems to resist every appointment, every aspect of Trump’s agenda.”
Over the past weekend, tens of thousands took to the streets in demonstrations in cities including Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, Newark, and Los Angeles. Activists in New York who spoke to The Daily Beast were also in close communication with organizers at the O’Hare International Airport “emergency protest,” which took place simultaneously.
