The picture below appeared on Mike Alewitz’s facebook page. Mike is a longtime left activist and artist in the States. It’s a great variation on – and far more inspiring than – the old Pastor Niemoller quote about they came for this group of people and then that group of people etc and no-one resisted. Mike made the following comment:
“One of the glorious aspects of the recent demonstrations is the lack of pre-printed signs and banners handed out by Democratic Party hacks and union bureaucrats.
“Instead we have seen an explosion of creative sign making – hand lettered messages that are funny, emotional, insightful and clever. These works are giving genuine expression to the aspirations of tens of thousands of workers, artists and activists.
“Here is a favorite of mine – artist and photographer unknown.
“This kind of organic art has always been around, but Donald Trump has definitely been an outstanding inspiration!
“(As both a professional sign painter and professor emeritus of street art, I heartily endorse this development).”
