Reject Steve Bannon

  • Week of November 20, 2016

Donald Trump appointed Steve Bannon as White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counsel. In Bannon’s own words this week, “Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power. It only helps us when they get it wrong. When they're blind to who we are and what we're doing." Steve Bannon, 11/18/2016 interview by Michael Wolff, The Hollywood Reporter.

Well, Darth Bannon, some may have been blind, but now All-of-us see that “if there’s a bright center of the universe, you’re on the planet that it’s farthest from.” (Luke Skywalker) All-of-us know how that trilogy ended. Friends, grab your virtual lightsabers and let's get to work.

All-of-us must:

Step 1: 
Find your representatives
Find your senators

Step 2: Check to see if they have already opposed Bannon

Step 3: If they have not, call them. Here is a sample script: “Hello, I am your constituent from [INSERT LOCATION]. I am calling to make sure that [INSERT NAME] has issued a statement against Bannon. I am deeply concerned about Bannon’s proliferation of racist, sexist, homophobic, antisemitic and other hate speech. We must oppose a man who David Duke, former leader of the KKK, has said is an excellent choice this week."

Step 4: Sign these 3 petitions
Petition 1
Petition 2
Petition 3
