Shia LaBeouf was arrested on Thursday in New York after being charged with a misdemeanor assault and harassment violations. According to police, LaBeouf pulled on a man’s scarf, scratching his face in the process. What is confusing to me is that there is video that also shows LaBeouf getting aggressive with other protestors whom are supposedly there to support the same beliefs. While this was able to shut up LaBeouf for a short time, the media that this created could have potentially drawn in more so called “protesters.”
LaBeouf organized an Anti-Trump protest outside of a New York museum with the words “He Will Not Divide Us” and a web camera located under the phrase. This “art project” is slated to continue for the next four years while Trump is in office. Other protesters have been invited to join in the chant to be viewed on live stream. People are shown in zombie like states chanting “He Will Not Divide Us”. LaBeouf has been known to exhibit some unique forms of media attention in the past. So, I can only wonder if this is some type of cult used to further divide our country or is he doing this for his own ulterior motive?
Whether you like it or not, President Trump is here to stay. Having these protests is wasting time, money and energy. These protesters need to build a bridge and get over it! The time is now for us to become united and create a better future. We need to stand behind our President because let’s face it, he’s not going anywhere. These radical protesters are just making themselves look bad and I have no idea what they are trying to accomplish.
