Bernice King: Be A King

Bernice King posted on her Be A King’s Facebook page 10 steps to deal with Trump and take back our democratic government. She passed on this wise advice:
1 Don’t use his name; EVER (45 will do)
2 Remember this is a regime and he’s not acting alone;
3 Do not argue with those who support him–it doesn’t work;
4 Focus on his policies, not his orange-ness and mental state;
5 Keep your message positive; they want the country to be angry and fearful because this is the soil from which their darkest policies will grow;
6 No more helpless/hopeless talk;
7 Support artists and the arts;
8 Be careful not to spread fake news. Check it;
9 Take care of yourselves; and
10 Resist!
Then, Bernice also offered this wisdom on her Facebook page:
‘Keep demonstrations peaceful. In the words of John Lennon, “When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight! Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.”

‘When you post or talk about him, don’t assign his actions to him, assign them to “The Republican Administration,” or “The Republicans.” This will have several effects: the Republican legislators will either have to take responsibility for their association with him or stand up for what some of them don’t like; he will not get the focus of attention he craves; Republican representatives will become very concerned about their re-elections.’
