So, lately some Death Eaters have been in the news asking us to keep it civil.
[Umbridge says, “I’m sure we’re all going to be very good friends.]
I have a lot of questions about the political implications of civility, so I decided to interview two of the most accomplished activists in the wizarding world, Fred and George Weasley.
[Fred and George grin]
Fred and George, do you think a polite conversation is going to stop ICE raids?
[Fred rolls his eyes and says, “That’s likely.]
How to you feel about Nancy Pelosi’s criticism of Maxine Waters’ calls for protests against Trump officials?
[Fred says, “Come again?”]
Seriously, Pelosi told Waters, a Black woman who survived Jim Crow, to be more polite because that’s what will make social change.
[George shakes his head. Text reads #JUDGING YOU]
Yeah, people are saying that we should deal with babies locked up in cages, threats to voting rights, increased income inequality, the Muslim travel ban, a growing prison system, and daily police violence by being nice.
[Fred and George yell “THAT’S RUBBISH!”]
What’s your opinion of Maxine Waters’ idea that we should confront Trump officials whenever and wherever we see them?
[Fred and George say, “Wicked.”]
What do you think about activists who have broken injust laws and raised their voices, even when people criticized them for being rude?
[George says, “We owe them so much.” Fred nods.]
And what are you personally doing in response to Death Eater-In-Chief Donald Trump’s immigration policies?
[Fred and George say, “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”]
So, you’re engaging in direct action? Trying to stop injustices as they happen?
[Fred and George wink rakishly.]
Have you heard about the national day of action against immigrant detention on June 30th? There will be demonstrations all over the United States.
[Fred says to George, “Wanna go?”]
What do you want to say to everyone who has been speaking and acting against Trump’s immigration policies and other hateful actions?
[Two images of Fred and George clapping and cheering]
In closing, is being polite ever more important than standing up for justice?
[Fred and George say, “Never.”]
Last, what do you hope will happen to Trump officials and anyone else who colludes with them?
[Umbridge runs from Fred and George’s fireworks]
[Fred and George fly on brooms through their fireworks and high-five.]
Me too, boys. Thanks for your time!
