WASHINGTON – Leftists, progressives, Democrats and President Trump-hating “cucks and snowflakes, safe spacers and libtards” across the country finally have assembled a coherent and organized plan of opposition to the political agenda of a president they dislike:
A mass temper tantrum.
It’s scheduled for Nov. 8, the one-year anniversary of Trump’s presidential-election victory over Hillary Clinton.
Organizers of the scream-fest are inviting people via Facebook to gather and let out a “primal scream for the current state of our democracy.”
“Join us cucks and snowflakes, safe spacers and libtards, as we enjoy a collective cathartic yell into the heavens about our current political establishment,” the notice for the New York “Scream helplessly at the sky” event reads.
The New York event so far has attracted 2,100 participants, while 15,000 say they’re interested. It is slated to take place in the city’s Washington Square Park.
Nathan Wahl, New York City’s organizer, wrote a blog post on Medium about how gathering in public to scream is cathartic.
“Listen, there’s a lot of s— I care about: a guaranteed living wage; universal healthcare; that everyone (and definitely Trump) see a therapist; for people to literally just recognize that Puerto Ricans are Americans??; the admittance of and restitution for decades-old police brutality in the black community; the wish for like one f—— law to pass about gun regulation,” Wahl complained.
“We really need some universal mental healthcare in this country and some anger management, while we’re at it. Which is kind of what this event is. It’s group anger management,” he continued. “No one’s crying. No one’s demanding anything. It’s a collective expression of frustration. It’s like … it’s like the feeling you have when you’ve been building Ikea furniture for three hours, and it’s late, and you feel like you’re getting nowhere, and you were almost done, but then you realized you put a piece on backwards and you have to take almost the entire thing apart and you just wanna f—— SCREAM. That’s what it feels like living in America right now — building Ikea furniture.”
The event was born in Boston, where the organizers plan to congregate at the country’s oldest park, the Boston Common, and wail about the Democratic Party’s electoral shellacking.

Boston organizer Johanna Schulman said banding together to scream will comfort Americans who are distraught by Trump, who they claim is an un-American president.
“This administration has attacked everything about what it means to be American. Who wouldn’t feel helpless every day?” Schulman told Newsweek. “Coming together reminds us that we are not alone, that we are part of an enormous community of activists who are motivated and angry, whose actions can make a difference.”
More than 500 people are planning to scream about Trump in Philadelphia at Dilworth Park, adjacent to Philly’s historic City Hall, while another 3,100 have expressed interest.
The group Philadelphia United for Progress is advising participants to stand in solidarity against Trump by screaming “from your own backyard.”
British political commentator Piers Morgan contends “hysterical Trump-hating liberal snowflakes” are wasting their time screaming about Trump’s victory, because the president will likely be re-elected in 2020.
“As things stand, I predict Donald J. Trump will be re-elected president of the United States,” Morgan wrote in a London Daily Mail commentary. “There are tens of millions of Americans right now who don’t feel helpless at all. In fact, they’ve never felt happier that they’ve finally got a guy in the White House who THEY believe stands up for THEM. They don’t share YOUR view of what it means to be an American. They share Trump’s view, because it’s THEIR view.
“That’s why he was elected president, and that’s why I am beginning to think he will be comfortably re-elected in 2020.”
Since Trump took office, protests, many finishing in violence, have erupted across the country to oppose him and his agenda. Media reports have described it as “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” which afflicts those who are unable to cope with the reality of a Trump victory.
In what marked possibly the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history, women dressed in pink hats engaged in a Women’s March during Trump’s inauguration, accusing the new president of being a misogynist. They demanded gender equality and inclusion.
Liberals also flocked to Vice President Mike Pence’s house during the inauguration and threw a dance party celebrating the LGBT community.
Weeks later, anti-Trumpers protested at airports nationwide, standing in opposition to Trump’s travel restrictions from nations that aid and abet terrorism.
Left-wing groups also baked cupcakes for Republican lawmakers who opposed Trump’s conservative agenda. The organization MomsRising flooded Arizona Sen. John McCain’s office with cupcakes in September after he announced his opposition to the Republican-led attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare with the Graham-Cassidy bill.
