C-list actress Patricia Arquette demands American citizens to participate in a one-day economic shutdown. Her purpose? To damage the U.S. economy in order to hurt President Donald Trump and his policies. The self-described "actress, activist and troublemaker" is trying to stir trouble by planning an economic shutdown to cause a "238 billion dollar blip" on the federal government's records.
This plan will not harm her at all. That can't be said for the 59% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck.
Arquette planned to start this from March 2. She posted the message for her 146,000 followers and others who stumble on her post to see. Her words were "A REMINDER: Please contact everyone you know. On Monday, March 2, there is an Economic shutdown. #Shutitdown. It's easy." She supported this message with a statistic she got from a retweet, saying "DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY ON ANYTHING ANYWHERE. Our goal is to cause a $238 billion dollar blip on the federal government's records. "She also added the #RESIST under it.
This idea isn't to be credited to Arquette; the retweet came from David Crosby. The idea was headed by Twitter account @Lee8772. This twitter user has been calling for day-long boycotts each month through the November election.
This certain tweet started with "AMERICANS: If you want to remove Trump, there is one way to do it. On March 2, 2020, we'll do the economic shutdown from 12:01 a.b. to 11:59 p.m. Don't buy anything, anywhere, spend no money. If you have autopay, leave them alone. If you have a mortgage due, pay it the day before."
On the same thread, @Lee8772 tweeted, "The nation's daily GDP is $238.2 billion. We won't hit that, but we can wake up the politicians & the government will know. Several small businesses have told me they'll open, but they won't spend any money. Tweet, F.B., call, E-mail your House Reps & Senators & tell… 3) them you're participating. Then we'll do another one in April, May, June, July, August, September & October. There is only one thing Trump & the GOP understand; that is money. This will not cause us to go into a recession, but it will slow the economy down. The U.S. is the most
… powerful country in the world. We can do this. It will show the GOP that Americans are coming together & we're demanding changes starting with the removal of Trump. Remember: Economic Shutdown, don't buy anything on March 2. Emergencies excepted."
Back to Arquette, one Instagram user called her out for encouraging an economic shutdown. The user highlighted on The Daily Wire wrote, "You want to hurt Trump and his campaign, do you think it's good and okay to destroy our economy? We watched your movies; we helped make you productive. You're part of the 'elite and woke Hollywood celebrity' faction with deeply lined pockets. You'll be just fine. But what about the rest of us? 59% of U.S. adults are struggling to make ends meet every month and living paycheck to paycheck. Those that do this are harming our entire nation! We cannot support or condone that!!"
While Arquette is not the only Hollywood celebrity encouraging economic disaster, this by far, is one of the worst.
