Liberal filmmaker Michael More continued his trip on the anti-Donald Trump train Tuesday with a Facebook post offering his followers a "10-point action plan to stop" the Republican president.
"So the momentum is with us right now — and if we all just take a little time to do the Action Plan below, I'm convinced we'll succeed in halting the dark force that is Trump," Moore writes. "We can tie him up in knots at every turn, and eventually, we can bring him down."
The 10 points are:
1. A daily call to Congress.
2. A monthly visit to the offices of your senators and/or representatives.
3. Form your own "Rapid Response Team."
For this one Moore suggests getting "5 to 20 friends and family members" on a team, of sorts, so everyone can "leap into action" when something like Trump's "Muslim ban" occurs. Moore's team — "The V for Vendetta Rapid Response Team" — includes him, his daughter and son-in-law and their new baby, Moore's two sisters, their spouses and adult children, Moore's cousin, eight friends, six co-workers and a next-door neighbor.
"That's 27 of us and we live from Seattle to Michigan to Maryland," he continued. "And each of them are forming their own local Rapid Response Teams. So that means the 27 on my team are so far responsible 405 new Rapid Responders overnight! And each of those 405 are doing the same — they're recruiting their own 5-20 people — and BOOM! 4,050 more Rapid Responders tomorrow — and growing!"
4. Join! Join! Join!
Moore shares that he's joined "some of our great national groups" such as "Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Black Lives Matter, Democratic Socialists of America, and ERA Action."
5. The Women's March never ends.
He tells readers the Women's March that took place the day after Trump's inauguration spawned numerous other protests. "Every day — still! — dozens of actions continue to take place as if the Women's March never ended," Moore added. "It hasn't. Join it!"
6. Take over the Democratic Party.
"How is it that we have won the popular vote in SIX OF THE LAST SEVEN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS — the Republicans have only won ONCE since 1988 — and yet, we hold NO power in any branch of government?!" Moore asked. "That, plus losing 1,000 local seats in this election that the Dems use to hold — plus watching many Dems in Congress unwilling to stand up to Trump — PLEASE, the old leadership has to go. God love 'em for their contributions in the past, but if we don't enact a radical overhaul right now, we are doomed as far as having a true opposition party during the Trump era. And that, more than anything, will help to usher in the vice-grip of a totalitarian culture."
7. Help form blue regions of resistance.
Moore insists that "Blue States and Blue Cities must do an end-run around Trump and create the America we want to live in. That means New York goes ahead and offers Free College for All. California can create its own Universal Health Care. Oregon can stop mass incarceration of African Americans. Hawaii can enact its own climate change laws. Blue States can show the rest of country how much better life can be."
8. You must run for office.
9. You must become the media.
He suggests finding media outlets "doing a good job" and then launching "your own 'media empire' by sharing their work and your work on the internet. Use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and other social media sites to spread news and information. Make sure all your friends and family are signed up. Yes, I'm talking to you, Baby Boomers. Get over it, put down your postage stamps and your 'TV clicker' and find a six-year old to show you how to start tweeting."
10. Join the army of comedy.
Moore observes that Trump's "Achilles heel is his massively thin skin. He can't take mockery. So we all need to MOCK HIM UP! Not just the brilliant people at SNL or Colbert, Seth Myers or Samantha Bee — but YOU. Use your sense of humor and share it with people. Get them to do the same. Keep sending around the SNL links spoofing Sean Spicer, Trump and Kellyanne — there's no such thing as watching them too many times!"
This, he says, will ultimately force Trump "out of the White House."
Moore offers to his followers in conclusion that they "can nonviolently block and obstruct halt the damage he's doing. But it's going to need — and take — ALL HANDS ON DECK!"
"Let's make Trump toast again," he writes.
