Resist the Resistance on November 6th [OPINION]
The vile left-wing mob that wants to run the country has taken to assaulting political opponents, defacing opposition campaign headquarters and harassing 9/11 widows.
Meanwhile, the likes of Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine and Eric Holder send messages in from the sidelines encouraging incivility in the streets. Others, such as Congresswoman Maxine Waters, have called on the mob to harass their opponents in public places such as airports and restaurants.
Leftists in the entertainment industry continue to call for violence against President Trump and his supporters, and Antifa heroes wearing masks to hide their identity are terrorizing the streets in some cities while doing their best to prevent their opponents from expressing their views.
Is this the America you love? Is this the how you believe we should be governed?
Why has no one from the left denounced the violence and intolerance being inflected on their behalf? Where is the outrage from the Democrats? They remain silent.
And these are the folks who call President Trump a bully.
A caravan of migrants from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and God knows where else is marching toward the southern border of the United States. Someone is funding, feeding and encouraging this invading army. President Trump is pressuring Mexico and the governments in the aforementioned countries to turn these people around and address problems at home. The left remains silent on this. Why?
The people spoke loudly in 2016 by rejecting the status quo. The Democrats went immediately into resistance mode, where they continue to try to disrupt and prevent any progress on the agenda endorsed by the voters in that election. Whether it be tax cuts, job growth, border security or rounding up illegal criminal gangs like MS-13, the left has resisted.
The Democrats have indeed turned into an angry mob hell-bent on resisting any initiative put forth. I, for one, am tired of it. I hope you are as well. Elections have consequences. Let's show the leftists on November 6 that we know how to resist, too.
No excuses. You must vote on November 6, or this will be our future.
