    The history of "He Will Not Divide Us"

    Post  sinister_midget on Sat Apr 01, 2017 9:03 am

    Taken directly from the page at http://hewillnotdivide.us

    Commencing at 9am on January 20, 2017, the day of the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, the public is invited to deliver the words "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish.

    Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community. 

    On February 10, 2017, the Museum of the Moving Image abandoned the project. 

    On February 18, 2017, the project relocated to a wall outside the El Rey Theater, Albuquerque. 

    On March 8, 2017, the project moved to an unknown location. A flag emblazoned with the words "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" will be flown for the duration. 

    On March 22, 2017, the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool, adopted the project.

    One line is missing at the end of that, though. Here's what should be there.

    On March 22, 2017, the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool, shut the project down.

    That line was necessary when the flag was once again taken down in the middle of the very first day by a masked avenger, and the museum decided they didn't want Shia LeBouf showing up to beat on people.

    Also missing was why it was closed down in New York (Shia was causing too much trouble and the violence was increasing, so the museum told him to take a hike), why it was shut down in Albuquerque (guns going off a hundred or so yards away and the police closed it down because they said it was attracting people prone to violence - you mean like Shia?) and that it was shut down at the "unknown location" less than 48 hours after it was put up (using stars, flight patterns, winds, shadows, a guy driving around honking his horn and listening for it over the live feed and a Twitter post, people located it and replaced it with w #MAGA hat and shirt).

    This wouldn't be so hilarious if not for the fact that Sharia LeBuff was a jerk from the very beginning to anyone not on the same page. There's even one video of him abusing somebody who was on his side because he thought they were non-leftists.

    Here's the Washington $%@t's take on it. Naturally, filled with innuendo, claims with no actual support, incorrect claims on some of their "facts", quoting of only a single source (sounds to be biased, probably is, but the bias might be partially understandable) who makes claims that may or may not be partially true, etc.

    A live stream of Shia LaBeouf chanting was disrupted by Nazi-themed dancing. Then things got weird.

    You can go read it if you want. I won't bother putting it all here. There's a lot of sloppiness in it. Part of it minor enough to not get excited about it. Some of what they say rises to outright falsehood. Either they made it up or they took what they were told by somebody else who made it up and they didn't bother checking.
