Whether In or Out of Paris, Climate Movement Calls for 'Full-On Resistance' to Trump

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Regardless of whether President Donald Trump withdraws the United States from the Paris climate agreement, the environmental movement is calling for "full-on resistance" to the host of backwards, polluting policies that have already become a hallmark of the new administration.

By framing the movements for a sustainable and healthy world as "Full-On Resistance" to Trump, this headline makes a huge political error on many levels. The most significant is that the anti-Trump/Trumpism memes that pervade liberal and progressive media personalize a reality that is systemic.

Neoliberal imperial capitalism managed by global oligarchs, corporations and bought-off governments and NGOs is the problem.

You can piss on Trump all you want, but if we do not organize to win enough power to survive the realities of global capitalism and ultimately replace it with more sustainable forms of human organization, we are lost. Like the orange-haired idiot himself, the anti-Trump memists are nothing more than narcissistic idiots, not people who seriously want to do the hard work of making political change.
