Democrats, such as CNN’s Don Lemon, have been labeling President Trump as “the divider-in-chief” practically since the day he defeated Hillary Clinton and won the presidency.
Yet, it is Democrats who seem to revel in calls for more violence, more mob action and less civility.
And we’re not talking about the usual college-age radicals in their fatigues, berets and Che Guevara shirts or the Soros-funded community organizers pulling down six figures while chanting “power to the people.”
And we’re not talking about whack job Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters and her calls for Left wing mobs to “get in the face” of Republicans and Trump supporters.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents,” Waters said during a rally outside LA’s Wilshire Federal Building.
We’re talking about the leading elected officials and present and former Democratic presidential candidates.
No one is more responsible for the creation of the “angry, Left wing mob” that the Democratic Party has become than Massachusetts’ Far Left Senator Elizabeth Warren: “I am angry,” she declared during one of the more raucous “Stop Kavanaugh” mob scenes, “I own it. I am angry.”
Warren has all but announced her 2020 run for President, waiting only to get past her November re-elect to make the formal announcement.
California’s Far Left Senator Kamala Harris has also distinguished herself as one of the Democratic Party’s least civil members, indeed she has made incivility a central part of her political brand.
As National Review contributor Jonathan S. Tobin noted, “Harris may lack the talent to fulfill her not-so-secret desire to emulate Barack Obama by parlaying a single unfinished term in the Senate into a successful presidential bid. But there’s no question that on the strength of these [Senate Intelligence Committee] hearings, she can lay claim to a style that is the future of American politics: Her combination of incivility, bullying, and victim hood makes her the perfect reflection of our current moment.”
New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker, who vied with Kamala Harris to turn the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing into a presidential launching pad has also embraced incivility as part of his brand.
Appearing on MSNBC, Booker endorsed the call from Maxine Waters for protesters to harass members of the Trump administration whenever they dare to step foot in public.
As the Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported, after bumbling through a long-winded response about “radical love” and being civil to even those you disagree with, Booker took a turn and endorsed Waters’ call to action.
“If I saw an administrator out and about — there is nothing wrong with confronting that person,” Booker said.
The latest and perhaps least surprising entrant in the Democratic incivility sweepstakes is Hillary Clinton, who told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about… That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”
In other words, civility only occurs when Democrats are in power. When they are out of power, anything goes.
“In their quest for power, the radical Democrats have turned into an angry mob,” President Trump said at a recent rally.
We can’t say the Rep. Maxine Waters, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Cory Booker and Hillary Clinton constitute a “mob,” but they certainly prove the point the President made at Monday’s rally: “You don’t hand matches to an arsonist and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob – and that’s what they’ve become. The Democrats have become too extreme and too dangerous to govern.”
