Golly, it seems there really is an organized underground resistance movement opposing Trump, QAnon, the Proud Boys, and all the other elements of the radical far right.  Who would have thought that?  Maybe some people on this very website were part of it.  Maybe only one...

Quote:
Introduction

We've defeated Trump.  We've defeated his cronies.  We won in Georgia and took the Senate.  We've celebrated.  Now, we have a short window to save our democracy.  Getting it done depends on all of us, and this new Indivisible guide provides a blueprint.

Four years ago, we wrote a guide to resisting Donald Trump.  Our message was simple: even in a dark and frightening moment, when Trump and his minions controlled every branch of the federal government, we still had power.  We could use our power to resist -- and ultimately, to win.

We could never have predicted what would come next: that thousands of people would bring together their neighbors, their friends, their communities, to do just that.  That we would become part of a grassroots movement that would help save the Affordable Care Act, build a Blue Wave in 2018, stand in fierce solidarity with communities under threat, and ultimately, kick Donald Trump out of office...

Why do it as organized underground when you can do it openly and naturally, including organized forms?

Ask them!  Or, better yet, go to their not-hidden website and find out for yourself.

I clicked on the link. This stuff sounds like it's counter-Q. Different politics, but heading in the same conspiratorial direction. Like I said, we've got both Trump cultists and anti-Trump cultists. And neither side recognizes their own hypocrisy. Very strange.

Not strange at all -- it is called "Politics".

An underground resistance organization which has its own website and is registered as a 501(c)(4) organization?

They are also engaging in highly visible activities (like encouraging people to vote) which obviously draws a lot of attention from the authorities.

And finally: Their directors and board members all use their real names, and they are not even in disguise!

These people *seriously* need to work on their clandestine skills...

The choice of "Underground" was mine -- to go along with the subject line -- and reminiscent of the French Underground of WWII (e.g., "La Résistance").

It is funny that they have been operating out in the open, yet no one else seemed to notice until I posted this thread (Please correct me if I am wrong).

I briefly got this confused in my mind with the invisible committee. ... It's not.

The word is "indivisible", as in "with liberty and justice for all".
