In an effort to keep the anti-Trump rage dialed up to 11, Maxine Waters, is openly calling on #TheResistance to find and confront members of the Trump administration:
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
The Left has already crossed the line of civility and are aggressively confronting Trump administration officials in restaurants, while at the movies, outside their home and even doxing enforcement agency employees.
Like so many of the left’s reactions to Hillary losing, you have to wonder who thought this was a good idea?
“To say you won’t respect the result of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy.” Hillary Clinton
It’s not hard to see where this mob behavior with lead. First they resist Trump. Next, they “confront” members of his team. Then, they will target his supporters.
You wear the wrong t-shirt, disgusting things are done to your food. Say the wrong thing to a friend while at the bar, no more beer for you. You support the wrong candidate, your kids are harassed in school. Do you want to live in a country where, because of your political views, you’re only allowed to go to certain restaurants or movie theaters and perhaps even have to live in a separate part of town?
Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, has become an influential political thinker. In his reaction to press support of ejecting White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders from a Virginia restaurant, he summed up how important it is for Republicans to get out and vote:
If a “Blue Wave” appeared in November, and Democrats won the U.S. House and impeached the president, “I think it would be a dangerous situation for Trump supporters, wouldn’t you?” Adams observed.
“And I’m feeling like the best reason for Republicans to vote is they’re coming for you next. And they’re not hiding it. They’re coming for Trump right now, but they’re making it pretty clear they’re coming for Trump supporters next,” he said.
“The one and only way to protect yourself is to make sure they lose the election,” he concluded.
It’s hard to know what the best course of action is to counter such aggressive tactics; given that two wrongs don’t make a right. One thing is clear, allowing the current democratic leadership continued access to power is a very bad idea.
