Over the past week or so, we’ve seen liberal #Resistance fighters take their game to a new level. Driven absolutely mad by the media’s portrayal of this administration as the second coming of the Nazis, the outlandishly one-sided, overhyped stories coming from the border, and President Trump’s abject refusal to surrender to their demands, depressed leftists are taking matters into their own hands. And it has driven this country into a realm of polarization that threatens to make the worst moments of the 2016 campaign look like a 1970s Coca-Cola commercial.
First, we saw Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen harassed and bullied out of a Mexican restaurant by staffers and protesters who were incensed at her role in the family separation policies at the border. Then the same happened to Trump aide Stephen Miller. Most prominently, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was refused service at a Virginia restaurant where the owner supposedly had a problem with the administration’s ban on transgender people in the military.
To make a bad situation worse, you then have people like Crazy Maxine Waters (D-CA) out there encouraging people to keep up the harassment.
“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,” Waters told supporters this weekend.
Sanders, Trump, and even Chuck Schumer have condemned Waters for those comments, but far too many on the left think that she’s right. They are so deflated and powerless that they are willing to resort to any means necessary to drive the Trump presidency out of Washington. If that includes personal attacks on members of his Cabinet, so be it. But since the vast majority of liberal soldiers do not live in the D.C. area and thus will never have an opportunity to force Sarah Sanders out of a restaurant, you’d better believe that they’ll be willing to accept substitutes. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has already discovered this first-hand. And it will only be a matter of time before run-of-the-mill, everyday supporters of the president discover it as well.
Hence, actor James Woods and others are sending up the red alarm flag: If you are a public or unashamed support of this administration, don’t take your safety for granted.
“Buy guns,” Woods advised on Monday. “Vote. Violence is the next stop on the #MadMaxine slippery slope. We WILL fight back.”
The vast majority of liberals are not going to jump on that bandwagon, no matter how much they may despise this president. But there is a slim minority that will, and that’s all it takes for the bloodshed to begin. And once it does begin, the media and people like Maxine Waters will – MUST – be held to account.
