Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential elections, liberals have been whining about how “unfair” the result is nonstop. Now, bitter liberals have shifted their focus to targeting Trump’s daughter Ivanka, as a group of New York artists has banded together to protest the president-elect with a campaign they call “Dear Ivanka.”
Daily Mail reported that the effort is being led by the Halt Action Group, which was founded by curator Alison Gingeras, dealer Bill Powers, Jonathan Horowitz, and other personalities in the art world.
“Dear Ivanka, we need to talk about your dad,’ the group’s website stated. “Racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia are not acceptable anywhere—least of all in the White House.”
“Steve Bannon has no place in the White House. Jeff Sessions has no place in the White House. Talk of a Muslim registry has no place in the White House,” it continued. “Hate has no place in the White House. We refuse to ‘wait and see.’ We look to you as the voice of reason.”
Other artists that have pieces in Ivanka’s Manhattan apartment have also chimed in to demand that she take their pieces down.
“Dear @Ivankatrump please get my work off of your walls. I am embarrassed to be seen with you,” Philadelphia artist Alex Da Corte wrote on his Instagram page. Ivanka previously posted a photo of herself standing next to one of Da Corte’s pieces.
At the end of November, the Halt Action Group staged a protest outside Ivanka’s apartment building in New York City. The protest was attended by around 500 people many of whom carried signs, chanted and held a candlelight vigil during the demonstration.
Unfortunately for the Halt Action Group, their little protests are failing miserably, since Trump’s favorability ratings are soaring. Town Hall reported that Trump’s favorability rating has jumped 12 points since the beginning of October, from 29% to 41%. Though 47% of Americans still view him unfavorably, a net of -6% is still pretty good for an incoming president like him after such a divisive election.
In addition, Ivanka remains one of the most popular members of the Trump family. Many have taken to Twitter to defend her from the vile attacks these artists have inflicted on her.
#haltactiongroup. more bullying from the left. U were fine when she paid $ for your art. It's ok to bully a woman and her family?
