I get where all those posts and tweets are coming from about wanting to drive down ratings, DVR playbacks, tweets, and feedback about the inauguration are coming from. It’s a well-intentioned place. I too would love to see Trump explode because the ratings were not what he wanted and that he’s not trending, and he would too, if such things were possible.
But I don’t think at this point it’s possible to make a significant protest out of this. Too many people on either side of the aisle are going to be tuning in either out of support, morbid curiosity, latent horror, etc. Too many people are going to refuse to look away from this train wreck happening before their eyes. (Also unless you DVR it or have a Nielsen box, your watching it on TV doesn’t matter anyway)
But more than that, the time to ignore Donald Trump has already ended. The time to ignore Donald Trump and kill his ratings was during the campaign when he held no office and was a complete joke candidate. He should have been ignored before he became the nominee.
But now we can’t ignore Donald Trump ever, ever again, not until his entire empire has been eliminated. We have to keep our eyes on him more than ever before and say, “We see you.” We have to be ready to criticize him and oppose him at every turn. Because it doesn’t matter anymore if you pretend he doesn’t exist - he’s still going to be the president.
The inauguration may feel like just a meaningless pageant so there’s no harm in not discussing it online. But we know by now that Trump’s rallies have been dangerous; even his only press conference as president-elect was dangerous. If we don’t talk about it, loudly oppose it, he gets away with every awful thing that happens there. His supporters will keep it trending anyway.
Meaningful protest is when actual people invited to the inauguration, like politicians, talent, and scores of other people, do not show up. THAT is what will truly hurt him. It’s a visible statement that can’t be skewed or misinterpreted. Meaningful protest will be tens of thousands, hopefully hundreds of thousands of people attending the Women’s March on Washington protests happening all over the nation on Saturday. Please consider attending one of those, and please openly oppose Trump online on Inauguration Day to drown out his supporters and any media that tries to normalize this nightmarish thing happening.
