Black Lives Matter Sings Anti-Trump Christmas Carols at Posh Trump Golf Club
January 2, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
The exclusive $264 million Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles, in Rancho Palos Verdes, is ranked among the top 100 courses in the country to play golf. On Christmas Eve, people dining at the club were treated to anti-Trump Christmas carols sung by Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters.
More than 60 BLM activists staged a Black Brunch protest, walking into the fancy golf club’s restaurant without any objection from staff members. They went right past the maître d and began singing what they called “conscious Christmas carols.” Reportedly, the mainly white diners were initially shocked, but then many of them applauded the singers who were able to sing four songs. A news report said only one diner tried, unsuccessfully, to stop the anti-Trump protesters.
One of the carols, sung to the tune of “The Christmas Song” (aka “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”) was “Trump’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire” by Fiona Apple, which included the lyrics:
Trump’s nuts roasting on an open fire
As he keeps nipping at his foes
You’ll cry “creepy uncle” every time he arrives
For he keeps clawing at your clothes
Everybody knows that money and entitlement can help to make the season white
Mothers of color with their kids out of sight will find it hard to sleep at night
Another song was “Deck the Streets” (to the tune of “Deck the Halls”) and “Hark! The Fighting People Sing” (to the tune of “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”).
