As Twitchy reported last night, a few dozen protesters gathered outside 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York to protest Donald Trump, who was inside the “Saturday Night Live” studio rehearsing with the cast for this weekend’s hosting gig. Armed with megaphones, protesters demanded that NBC “dump Trump,” although there was no chance of their message reaching the soundproofed studio.
A group called Deport Racism has put out a bounty on Trump, though, offering a $5,000 cash prize to anyone who can disrupt the live broadcast of SNL Saturday night. All you have to do is complete two simple steps:
- Be heard clearly on-air during the live TV broadcast saying Deport Racism or Trump is a Racist.
- Be identified by name in media (TV, print, radio or online) news reports as being a DeportRacism.com supporter.
Whether or not Deport Racism, anon-profit PAC “dedicated to fighting anti-Latino and anti-immigrant racism in the 2016 election,” manages to disrupt SNL, the group has already made a name for itself on social media with its anti-Trump ad featuring two obnoxious children. Yes, these are young kids, but the ad comes with a strong content warning and is likely not safe for work.
Judging by the reaction on Twitter, the ad is brutally effective at inspiring backlash.
Sounds like somebody hasn’t read the Department of Education’s new resource guideon supporting undocumented youth,which encourages teachers to “incorporate discussions around diversity and immigration into instruction”while addressing theirown personal biases.
