According to an article in the New York Times, independent bookstores are declaring themselves foot soldiers in the left’s so-called “resistance” against our president. Apparently, “bookstores have entered the fray, taking on roles ranging from meeting place to political war room.” Because what’s better than businesses getting political?
The article goes into many examples of bookstores taking up metaphorical arms as a squadron in the left-wing’s chaos campaign. For example, one bookstore has given out free samples of a book called “We Should All Be Feminists” by an author named Chinamanda Ngozi Adichie. “All over the country” bookstores are placing George Orwell’s “1984” and Sinclair Lewis’ “It Can’t Happen Here” in their windows. They are also apparently calling the very front display table in their stores the “#Resist table.” (Why does it need a hashtag?)
Because otherwise people wouldn’t know the Correct Thing To Think.
