A poll conducted by the Washington Post found that protest has become incredibly common today, with a third of D.C. residents participating in protests against Trump.

The phrase has become notorious across campus and among students. Plastered on shuttles, featured in promo videos, and splattered across an award for someone as distinguished as Malala Yousafzai, the classic campus phrase is something all AU students keep with them long past graduation.

As I witnessed what happened on campus last month, I had one overriding thought: we have seen this before. We have seen torch-bearing, swastika-clad demonstrators in Charlottesville this past August. We have seen ugly, crass racial slurs on AU’s campus earlier this year, and we have seen an unrelenting barrage of violent acts and words on the national stage over the last few years. Rather than appreciating that the United States is special because of its diversity and freedom, the purveyors of hate speech and violence hope to divide our country further. But we have seen this before, so, with the right approach, we can frustrate their aims.
