There is no doubt that the “resistance” of the liberal left is growing more radical as time moves on.
And how couldn’t they? Their leadership is literally calling for the formation of angry mobs in order to make American conservatives feel “unwelcome” in their own country. There aren’t dog whistles – these are bullhorns – and they are going to get people hurt.
Must we be reminded that it was only two weeks to the day after Kathy Griffin pulled her grotesque Trump-beheadhing stunt that James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on a baseball field full of GOP congressmen? These calls to action do not go unnoticed.
Now, as Brett Kavanaugh coasts through the confirmation process for joining the Supreme Court, the democratic “resistance” is out in force, protesting their bleeding hearts out. While a few high profile outbursts have made the rounds in the mainstream media, the true scope of the protest and the police response is somewhat alarming.
It took less than two minutes for the first protester to be ejected from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s opening day of testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee. Seconds later, a second demonstrator was thrown out of the hearing room, followed by another, followed by another.
“This is a mockery and a travesty of justice,” yelled one protester this week. “Kavanaugh can’t be trusted,” shouted another. Some protesters wore shirts that read things like “I am what’s at stake.” Others arrived on Capitol Hill dressed as characters from “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the story of a dystopian future in which women are treated as property of the state.
At least 227 demonstrators were arrested between the start of the nomination hearings on Tuesday and the end of testimony on Friday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police. Most of those charged this week with disorderly conduct, crowding or obstructing paid fines of $35 or $50.
Of course, some of these protesters may have been financially coerced into such outbursts, as we revealed earlier this week.
