I am serious. Hold them to their own rules.
Democratic Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia did just that this morning.
He pointed to recent rallies in support of health care, in support of women, and against President Trump's executive orders on immigration, saying Democrats must "take advantage" of the "tremendous public outcry."
"What we've got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box; and now there's the momentum to be able to do this," Kaine told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Tuesday.
"And we're not afraid of the popular outcry, we're energized by it, and that's going to help us do our job, and do it better."Given that some of that "tremendous public outcry" included Inauguration Day riots -- not condemned by any Democrat, as far as I can tell -- we must take Kaine's words literal.
Also given that Barack Obama's political mentor -- terrorist Bill Ayers -- helped organize that "protest," any other interpretation makes little sense.
The media said Trump encouraged violence in his rallies -- and one supporter punched a heckler -- and called that fascist. That was an over-reaction.
In light of anti-Trump violence for the past year, Kaine's encouragement to "fight in the streets" deserves real condemnation.
They told me that if I voted for President Trump fascists would seek power -- and they were right!
You encourage people to "fight in the streets," you own it, Democrats.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election is covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment," which will be published in paperback on February 7.
