In the wake of the Women’s March and its sister marches across the world, it’s important to remember that we remember that marching wasn’t the end of the story, that we must keep up the activism and join all necessary fights over the next four years.
But that sentiment rings a bit hollow when it comes from someone who was an active part of what got us here.
Cher is right. Don't stop with one March. Show up. Resist. https://t.co/1bLDLHIeLx— Susan Sarandon (@SusanSarandon) January 22, 2017
Susan Sarandon’s single vote wasn’t a deciding factor and could change nothing. But she used her platform to further the idea that not only was Hillary Clinton a bad choice, but that she was worse than Donald Trump. And this idea permeated every corner of every county that gave him that electoral college win. And here we fucking are.
And people noticed.
@SusanSarandon You used your voice to encourage people to throw their vote away on Stein. You helped cause this- you can't sit with us.— Gen (@Genevieve_Marie) January 23, 2017
@SusanSarandon With all due respect, you stood with Trump. If you oppose him now, great, but you're in no position to lead on this issue.— Charles Gaba (@charles_gaba) January 23, 2017
Wow. You've got a lot of nerve. @SusanSarandon— Kris M. Wernowsky (@kriswernowsky) January 23, 2017
Ultimately it doesn’t matter. Susan Sarandon wants “The Revolution.” And as for the fallout? It won’t touch her anyway. As for the rest of us? Take whatever privilege you have, however small, and use it for good.
Or, in short, don’t be Susan Sarandon.
