The liberal temper tantrum continues.
What began as protests in the streets after President Trump’s election night victory, has turned into outright intimidation and violence.
Now, as Republican legislators hold town hall meetings with their constituents, radical Leftist agitators are threatening their very safety.
In an interview with The Hill after a weekend town hall in his district, Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) said:
“I’ve done over a hundred townhall meetings throughout the entire life of the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street movement.
“Never has a police department felt it needed to intervene and provide me with a police escort for security reasons.
“That’s a first.
“Something very different is going on in this country than we’ve seen.”
When the Tea Party Movement sprung up in 2009, it was a reaction to specific big government policies enacted by the Obama administration that threatened our freedom.
Rallies that thousands — and even millions of people attended never turned violent.
Of course, the media tried to paint the Tea Party as “racist.”
But these patriotic Americans were exercising their right to assembly enshrined in the First Amendment.
Americans that oppose Trump certainly have that right.
But this new “Resistance” Movement has turned violent.
In a speech on the House floor on Tuesday, Rep. McClintock warned:
“The radical Left seeks not to persuade their fellow citizens by reason.
“But rather to impose its views by bullying, insulting, intimidating, and as in Berkeley, by physically attacking their fellow citizens.”
This certainly poses a threat to the continuation of our Republic.
