Using the word “Resist,” Leftists are becoming more and more agitated with everything President Trump does, says or even proposes. This is now spilling into the streets, as evidenced by the violent riot at Berkeley Wednesday night.
While this is going on, the Democrats’ vice-presidential candidate, Tim Kaine, told his supporters to “fight in the streets” over Trump.
“What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box,” Sen. Tim Kaine told MSNBC Tuesday.
It’s now “The Resistance,” Byron York writes in The Washington Examiner, and it’s very dangerous.
Even more so that Barack Obama has violated long-standing rules of etiquette and seem to be egging on the demonstrators and “resistors.”
Finally, as The Resistance organized itself and pushed on multiple fronts, a new supporter spoke up to encourage the protesters — former President Barack Obama, who managed to stay out of his successor’s affairs for all of 11 days.
“President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” a spokesman said Monday. “Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”
“The Resistance” has come up with a new talking point. Democrats are proclaiming the Trump Administration has thrust us into a “constitutional crisis.”
“We are here tonight because it is a constitutional crisis,” said Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren at a protest outside the Supreme Court Monday night.
“A constitutional crisis,” said Democratic Sen. Cory Booker as he joined demonstrators at Dulles Airport Saturday night.
“A constitutional crisis,” said Virginia Democratic Rep. Don Beyer when he arrived at Dulles Sunday.
And it is all meant to stir up anger and create discord and discontent:
Trump nominees will be slowly confirmed, well behind the pace of earlier administrations, in coming weeks and months. But the Democratic offensive will likely intensify — perhaps resembling a national version of the desperate Democratic protests against Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker when Walker’s agenda threatened key Democratic constituencies in 2011.
Walker won that fight, but only after Democrats threw everything they had at him. Trump can expect no less.
If Berkeley is any sign, the left with even condone literal fighting in the streets to get what they want.
