San Francisco's Official Response to the Election of Trump

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently passed a resolution, introduced by Board President London Breed, in response to the election of Donald Trump. The resolution reads as follows:

WHEREAS, On November 8, 2016, Donald Trump was elected to become the 45th President of the United States; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That no matter the threats made by President-elect Trump, San Francisco will remain a Sanctuary City. We will not turn our back on the men and women from other countries who help make this city great, and who represent over one third of our population. This is the Golden Gate—we build bridges, not walls; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That we will never back down on women’s rights, whether in healthcare, the workplace, or any other area threatened by a man who treats women as obstacles to be demeaned or objects to be assaulted. And just as important, we will ensure our young girls grow up with role models who show them they can be or do anything; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That there will be no conversion therapy, no withdrawal of rights in San Francisco. We began hosting gay weddings twelve years ago, and we are not stopping now. And to all the LGBTQ people all over the country who feel scared, bullied, or alone: You matter. You are seen; you are loved; and San Francisco will never stop fighting for you; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That we still believe in this nation’s founding principle of religious freedom. We do not ban people for their faith. And the only lists we keep are on invitations to come pray together; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That Black Lives Matter in San Francisco, even if they may not in the White House. And guided by President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, we will continue reforming our police department and rebuilding trust between police and communities of color so all citizens feel safe in their neighborhoods; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That climate change is not a hoax, or a plot by the Chinese. In this city, surrounded by water on three sides, science matters. And we will continue our work on CleanPower, Zero Waste, and everything else we are doing to protect future generations; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That we have been providing universal health care in this city for nearly a decade, and if the new administration follows through on its callous promise to revoke health insurance from 20 million people, San Franciscans will be protected; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That we are the birthplace of the United Nations, a city made stronger by the thousands of international visitors we welcome every day. We will remain committed to internationalism and to our friends and allies around the world—whether the administration in Washington is or not; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That San Francisco will remain a Transit First city and will continue building Muni and BART systems we can all rely upon, whether this administration follows through on its platform to eliminate federal transit funding or not; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That California is the sixth largest economy in the world. The Bay Area is the innovation capital of the country. We will not be bullied by threats to revoke our federal funding, nor will we sacrifice our values or members of our community for your dollar; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That we condemn all hate crimes and hate speech perpetrated in this election’s wake. That although the United States will soon have a President who has demonstrated a lack of respect for the values we hold in the highest regard in San Francisco, it cannot change who we are, and it will never change our values. We argue, we campaign, we debate vigorously within San Francisco, but on these points we are 100 percent united. We will fight discrimination and recklessness in all its forms. We are one City. And we will move forward together.

My thoughts to all the Americans who feel even worse than what we, outside the country, are feeling right now. It’s truly heartbreaking seeing that a country like United States went backward instead of forward as they have always done. I am really sorry and I hope you all unite to fight this, for the freedom your country has always been proud of. Fight against this, him, them, fight for your rights, fight and don’t give up. Do not surrender. You are fucking United States of America, you’ll win this too. All the love to you. 

dear australia,

i would like to apologize on behalf of my country, and on behalf of the man named donald trump who is now the president of the united states…a fact i find hard to swallow (but will accept, because i believe in democracy and our right to vote and choose our leaders).

i am writing this from the backstage dressing room of a venue in brisbane, australia, where i am about to take the stage.

i’ve been coming to australia to tour and perform almost every year since 2004, and it’s a place i hold near and dear to my heart. i love this land, i love the people and the attitudes towards freedom here, and i love that we both - the americans and the australians - are close cousins in our difficult and entangled struggles in the dark waters of our deeply complicated histories. i believe that in time, we can help each other navigate these waters.

i want you to know that donald trump’s stance on immigration (and specifically this current australian/american refugee deal madness, see below) is not the stance i take, and it doesn’t reflect the stance of about 99% of my american friends and family. i know that, because we talk about it, on and off the internet.

donald trump bellowed at his inauguration that he would put “america first”, and that we are “the greatest country in the world”.

and i want you to know that i don’t believe that, and that my circle of american friends don’t believe that, and that pretty much everybody i know is deeply embarrassed that this man is the face of our nation.

i believe that we cannot, as a human race, leave our most destitute hanging … i believe that we cannot just “take care of our own and fuck everybody else”. i believe we are better than that.

america NOT “first”.

nor australia.

nobody “first”.

or: everybody first. world first.

togetherness first.
and together, we’re going to figure this out.
again…sorry.

please let’s stay friends.

love,
amanda

p.s. it’s been all over the news….but if you don’t know what i’m talking about, please go read this article from the new york times: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/02/opinion/united-states-to-australia-get-lost.html

You know what upsets me? It’s not who is or isn’t in office as president of the United States, it’s how we are directly affected by who is chosen to be in office. Happens every 4 years in this country. Half the country is mad.

I’m watching people who love each other turn on each other and say hurtful things all in the name of someone who they don’t have a personal relationship with to begin with. Maybe if our identity was marked by the Kingdom of Christ and our relationship with Him, we wouldn’t let so much of our anger and hate be caused by a presidential election. What our country needs now more than ever is Jesus Christ.

  • what she says: im fine
  • what she means: Most people think I was named for the state, but it's not true. I was named for a battle ship. The U.S.S. Arizona. My grandfather was serving on the Arizona when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. He saved 19 men before he drowned. Pretty much everything my father did his whole life was about honoring that sacrifice. I was raised to be a good man in a storm. Raised to love my country. To love my family. To protect the things I love. When my father, Colonel Daniel Robbins of the United States Marine Corps, found out I was a lesbian, he said he only had one question. I was expecting, "how fast can you get the hell out of my house?" But instead it was, "are you still the person I raised you to be?" My father believed in country the way you believe in God and my father is not a man who bends but he bent for me because I'm his daughter. I'm a good man in a storm. I love your daughter. And I protect the things I love. Not that I need to. She doesn't need it. She's strong, and caring, and honorable. She's who you raised her to be.

Robert Francis Kennedy ● (November 20, 1925 - June 6, 1968)

What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love, and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black.”

With all the crazy stuff going on about Trump’s insane executive orders I thought I might just give some of my own input.

Of course, I was already shocked when I heard about the “Muslim ban”. But my cousin, a conservator at a museum who is rather well known in the art world, called recently because she was so distraught.

So many art conservators and people who are very important to her job are now either banned from entering the United States or can’t return home and be able to come back. So many people can’t come here and bring their knowledge. So many people can’t come and bring their art. The United States has now completely ostracized itself from the art world because we won’t be able to hold museum conferences unless we exclude all the representatives from Islamic countries.

Isn’t that horrible? It hurts so bad. I absolutely love art, and I love all art - and I love Islamic art too. And it hurts so horribly that idiot Donald Trump hasn’t really considered the implications of his rash decisions. And of course, this is only one effect … it hurts so bad that we exclude so many people - not to mention all the refugees and immigrants who seek refuge here from their countries at war, but also the people who help to expand our knowledge and promote beauty. It hurts.

We have to change it.

Photos from the protest at orlando international airport
We are fighting for the release of 3 people being detained here. Two had proper immigrant visas, the other is a lawful permanent resident. But there are many more around the united states who need to get back in the country to get to their families and their lives. People put an immense amount of time and money trying to get their green cards, this is unconstitutional and unamerican. Among the wonderful people I met today, 3 of them are immigrants to this country and are afraid that they’re next. When i went to the statue of liberty it read “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me” and last time i checked, it hasn’t changed. ❤💛💚💙💜

PSA: To the Witches in United States who are awe, mourning or don't even know what to feel.

Yes, this is a shocking day, to see the country show its ass today. It makes me uncomfortable to see that there are so many people who are controlled by their fear and are willing to fight,push and rip this country to shreds for material reasons. But it doesn’t mean that we are not strong enough to love, protect, and look out for one another. I know we all perfomed spells, curses,hexes and everything else in between.
We are the children of the Earth. 🌎 At this point, we have to protect our POC, LGBT and even us as a Spiritual Path.
Be there for your sisters and brothers. 👭👬👫 ❤💛💚💜💙
We are strong. Wear your seals of protection, wear your crystals ,cast a protection spell on you and on your family.
This is no time to fall weak. Stay in love my fellow witches! Walk in balance and harmony! Be love and peace!

With Love,
Frizzy

Let it be known, that today I willfully and consciously do NOT give my support to an incoming President who mocks the disabled, objectifies women’s bodies, and treats minorities like second-class citizens. I wish all the best to the American people in the upcoming years. I support the constitution. I support a free and independent press. I support the democratic process. I support the right to NOT support those in office who act immorally, including if not more so, the president of the United States. And let it be known today, that I refuse to be quiet. I love my country and her ideals and I stand with her!

I can't even begin to put into words how good it feels to finally know that the person who will soon be in charge of my country won't be constantly attacking my 2nd Amendment rights every chance he gets.

I’ve only been a gun owner since January of 2012, so all I know is life as a gun owner under the Obama Administration.

I know that we must always continue to fight for our rights and stay vigilant, but man it sure feels good to finally take a quick sigh of relief.

I love the 2nd Amendment and everything that it entails.

I love the United States of America.

Donald Trump is a fucking idiot.

Like, it goes beyond political affiliation at this point. He’s just a piece of shit person.

I honestly can’t believe you guys put this man in office. I’d love to just wait out his 4 years…but I don’t even think the United States will be around to see him voted out of office. Because he’ll have run the entire country into the ground.

America is royally screwed. And I wish I could put the blame solely on the people who voted for him, but Democrats are just as responsible for not taking action sooner, and doing all we could to make sure Bernie made it instead of Hillary.

I hate to break it to you, but the entire United States is not your own personal private property. And quit pretending that you love the people in this country when you let them starve, defend police officers who murder them, lock them in cages for victimless actions, or prohibit them from getting married.

Aaron as a prince!! And of course his parents are alive, so they’re the king and queen of this fictional country. Or real country. Doesn’t matter. Basically, he’s super spoiled and pampered and rich and while it’s nice, he wants to do more for himself. He’s tired of not knowing who his real friends are and not knowing whether or not people love him for him, or for his money ):

Arranged marriages are pretty much tradition in his country, but as soon as his parents set him up with a women he barely even knows (and was taught since like…birth, to obey his every single command) he comes up with this plan (with his friends) to travel to the United States and find “an intelligent, independent-minded person he can both love and respect, and who will love him for who he is and not for his wealth and social status as a prince”.

So Burr and his best friends/personal aides Jefferson and Madison head to New York to find his bride/husband-to-be ((((:

They rent this run down, tiny apartment and pose as poor foreign students to blend in (which…literally makes Thomas sick ok, he will not shut up about how terrible it is). They even end up working at a McDonalds, where they meet the rev set, because they all work there too.

That’s where he meets Hamilton, of course. At first, he finds him so goddamn annoying and wants nothing to do with him. But then they slowly start getting to know each other. Alexander turns out to be really smart and even funny sometimes and Burr tunes him out a lot of the time because he never stops talking, but he loves the way he’s so passionate about everything and the way his eyes light up when it’s something he’s really interested in. He’s very opinionated and stands his ground even when Burr has a different opinion and has no desire at all to agree with everything Burr say and that’s when Aaron knows he’s starting to fall in love!!! And it’s adorable!!!

Then there’s Jefferson who gets sick of living in the shitty apartment they’re renting and working at a McDonalds, for fucks sake, while Aaron thrives on hard work and enjoys learning how commoners live. Eventually, Thomas gets fed up when Aaron donates all their travel money, and ends up calling his parents (snitch) and they come to New York to find him ))):

(Madison is probably neutral. He doesn’t mind working (being Aaron’s personal aide and all) but he doesn’t mind being in New York and learning all these new and interesting things, so he stays out of it lmao.)

Of course, this is how Alexander (and his friends) find out Burr is actually a prince and he’s so upset about being lied to, he refuses to marry Burr when he asks. Even when he renounces his throne (while John is probably offering to marry Burr his damn self if Alexander won’t do it because he’s a prince!!! With money!!!!!! How could you say no?????)
