The Resistance is Growing

This is a remarkable photograph, and it encapsulates everything you need to know about America right now. The composition of it is entirely accidental. How was this woman allowed to ride her bike in traffic as a presidential motorcade passed? How was it that all of these elements were allowed to come together and deliver the single most amazing demonstration of resistance to the Trump regime?

You have this lone woman, vulnerable and unprotected except for her bike helmet. Along comes an array of armored SUVs transporting the President of the United States. She defies the situation and delivers a stinging rebuke. The raised middle finger is the American response to those who most deserve a hearty 'fuck you' for what they have done. This is how you resist evil. Show it you don't care, show it that you know what it is, and flip it the bird.
