Democrats have embraced the “resistance” movement to Donald Trump.
Elected officials and candidates are involved in a content of who can fire off the most outlandish statement of opposition to the President.
But this Congressman suggested Democrats take one unthinkable step to oppose Trump.
Congressman Tom Suozzi (D NY) was at a town hall event when he was asked about how far Democrats should go in opposing the President.
Suozzi suggested taking up arms against the administration and waging what could be a bloody battle in the streets.
The New York Post reports:
“A Democratic congressman from Long Island implied that Americans should grab weapons and oppose President Trump by force, if the commander-in-chief doesn’t follow the Constitution.
Rep. Tom Suozzi made the remark to constituents at a town hall last week, saying that folks opposed to Trump might resort to the “Second Amendment.”
“It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president,” Suozzi said in a newly released video of the March 12 talk in Huntington. “This is where the Second Amendment comes in, quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would you do? What would we do?”
A listener then blurts out, “What’s the Second Amendment?”
The left-leaning Democrat says, “The Second Amendment is the right to bear arms.”
If a Republican proposed taking up arms against Barack Obama the media would have demanded the Republican party renounce that individual and that they be driven from office.
There would have been endless CNN segments about the violent attitudes taking over the GOP and how the Republican Party extremism was tearing the country apart.
But the mainstream media will try to sweep this under the rug and ignore an elected Democrat advocating an armed resistance – and possible assassination attempt – against the President.
This is why conservatives hate the media.
