The REJECT Movement

In earlier posts - inspired by a post by IamFortunesFool - I was trying to come up with an appropriate and straightforward name for our resistance movement. After some thought, I came up with the REJECT Movement - Focused on --

Resistance
Equality
Justice
Environment
Community
Tolerance


Once again, I would be very interested in receiving feedback and insights from other DU members. Thanks in advance for your responses. - Dave

1. At first glance

I thought it sounded great. But I don't think the media calling us rejects is going to be helpful in the long run. We don't need a name that has to be explained, in my opinion.

What part of the state you in Dave? You a fellow region rat?

2. I'm in Evansville, in the southwestern part of Indiana.

When I created this acronym, I pictured people chanting "We REJECT Trump! - Resistance, Equality, Justice, Environment, Community, Tolerance! Reject! Reject! Reject!" It never occurred to me that the media might characterize us as rejects. I guess I'm kind of naive.

3. Nah man

Like I said, at first glance I was like, "kick ass!" Very creative. I just thought about from a different direction.

Reason I asked about where you're at is Joe Donnelly is doing a town hall Wednesday up here in Lake county...

4. Well, I'm committed, but I won't be seeing him up there.

Thanks for your comments. I'm still inclined to go with REJECT. But I'm interested in hearing from other members, too . However, it's so late that I think this post will probably get lost and ignored. Might try again tomorrow.

5. No offense...

But I'd rather see a name that at first glance represents being for something, rather than against.

6. OK - from reading other posts, earlier, I got a strong impression

People seemed to like the idea of Resistance. But that just seemed so generic to me (e.g., French Resistance during the Second World War), that I tried to find a similar concept with some specific "teeth" - issues we can all agree on, considering our primary problems are Trump and the Republican Congress. Came up with REJECT. But I get your point. Thanks for your thoughts!

8. Good sources for the acronym, but being a "reject" won't be fun.
