I made new phone wallpapers with small reminders of how to resist Ivanka's dad.
Did you call your senators to condemn facism yet today?
Calling our congresspeople is a quick, easy, free thing we can do to give them a tally of angry constituents to use as firepower. This helpful spreadsheet has calls to action, scripts for what to say, and the phone numbers of your local reps. I have phone anxiety, and I'm doing it.
I have a feeling this is something we will be doing regularly over the next few years.
This is not normal
We also have to keep repeating that how Ivanka's dad is handling his new administration is not normal.
“It is not normal for a president-elect to have 75 pending lawsuits against him, ranging from business fraud to illegal hiring practices. Hiring an avowed white supremacist and proud antisemite to be the chief of strategy at the White House is not normal. Staff participating in authoritarian victim-blaming and antisemitic conspiracism is not normal. When one of the new administration’s most senior proxies and spokesmen calmly discusses committing war crimes in the Middle East, it is not normal.”
Phone Habit Wallpapers
I find myself habitually looking at my phone when I’m commuting or idly waiting for something, so I decided to make my phone give me these gentle reminders. There are always interesting things to look at if you look up!
