For resistance try sending in the clowns - and other tunes for this Mournday

Undo Everthing Obama
The UnObama President

It’s easy. The opposite of black is white. White supremacy itself has no rationale foundation, is based on false claims, and hence is corrupt. That’s why undoing all things Obama did defines Trump’s whiteness.

Here’s the weekly toons from AZBlueMeanie at Blog for Arizona. Keep reading to find out about the CCC.

And where are the clowns
Send in the clowns
Don’t bother, they’re here.

Neo-Nazis in Your Streets? Send in the (Coup Clutz) Clowns reports the NY Times. (h/t Sherry Moreau)

… counterintuitive though it may seem, ridicule and mockery have long been an effective way to disarm protesters who espouse bigotry and racial supremacy. If you want to resist those who would stir up violence, using humor is more effective than staying at home when they march, and far better than rewarding their provocations with a melee in the streets.

For example:

In Olympia, Wash., in 2005, a march of about a dozen brown-shirted neo-Nazis was met by protesting clowns, goose-stepping, Nazi-style. Hundreds of counterprotesters turned the occasion into a celebration of diversity and unity.

Two years later in Knoxville, Tenn., residents countered a white supremacist march with a hastily assembled group calling itself the Coup Clutz Clowns. The clowns pretended not to understand the shouts of “White power!”

“White flour?” the clowns cried, throwing some in the air. “White flower? Tight shower? Wife power!” For wife power, some of them put on wedding dresses.
