Generating Kindness at a Trump Rally
2017/03/16 02:38

Clowned around the Trump Rally (sounds like a Wierd Al version of a Rage Against The Machine song) in Nashville and gave away a few hundred GK stickers. Found the clown motif a hugely impactful way of subverting the natural tension between passionately opposed viewpoints and offering a third perspective that created a fair bit of common ground in subsequent dialogue(s). Plus it made the victory of singing down a hate preacher with “Yes Jesus Loves Me” all the sweeter. Recommend getting in touch with your inner clown and taking her/him out to a protest to stir things up in a good way.
