Anybody that has read my articles with any sort of regularity knows I’m not a Trump fan, by any wild twist of the imagination.
I think he is dangerously unqualified for the job and I expect he’ll sink us into some disastrous international situation sooner, rather than later.
That being said, I have to point out how completely irrational and petty the left are for setting up redi-mobs for every event, and working so hard to shut down free speech, if that speech isn’t pre-approved by their puppetmasters. The election of Trump has furthered their descent into madness, apparently.
However, they’re out there and pushing. The right needs to do this.
Enter FreedomWorks. The Tea-Party group will be organizing conservative protesters, beginning in March, and hitting town hall meetings to urge their representatives to act in the interest of conservative voters, in regards to Obamacare.
“There will be more grassroots hand-to-hand combat than we’ve seen in Washington for a long time,” FreedomWorks President and CEO Adam Brandon said Monday during an interview in his office near the Capitol.
“The conservative [lawmakers], they need to see us out there pushing. And if they see that, they’ll be bold,” he continued. “If they don’t see grassroots there on the ground, they’ll start slipping.”
FreedomWorks will stage an ObamaCare repeal rally on Capitol Hill on March 15 with speeches from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and other top conservative allies.
I’m going to go ahead and call this one early: Afterwards, there will be no graffiti on walls, no storefront windows will be broken, no cars set ablaze, and the majority of their garbage will be properly disposed of.
From there, activists will descend upon congressional offices to press lawmakers to move quickly on ObamaCare. FreedomWorks officials are rallying behind a longshot replacement bill authored by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) that would eliminate many central elements of President Obama’s healthcare law, including the mandate that every American has coverage.
The so-called “Day of Action” will be followed by a phone-call campaign to lawmakers’ offices, plus rallies in targeted congressional districts across the country.
Wait… no p***yhats? No vagina costumes? Is that even allowed?
The organizers with FreedomWorks say that they’re waiting until mid-March to begin because they expect lawmakers to have a better view of which direction they’ll be taking with Obamacare, at that time.
FreedomWorks has already flexed its muscle as Trump has worked to get his Cabinet members seated. When Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) began waffling on whether he’d back Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), Trump’s pick for budget director, FreedomWorks officials said they organized 45,000 calls and messages to McCain’s office within a 24-hour period.
And that is perfectly acceptable.
If liberal activists wanted to have a letter writing campaign, make calls, or even show up at town hall meetings and do so respectably, allowing for answers, waiting to ask their questions, rather than repeatedly trying to shout down the speaker, as if that constitutes a win, then that would be the start to civil discourse.
It’s good to see the right map out a plan that doesn’t include violence and disrespect.
Things around this nation are far too ugly, right now. We need to push back, but we need to avoid looking like the left, to do it.
