Lefties terrorize like it's 2009

From Red State: "This isn’t going to end well. There is a crowd forming outside Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell’s house in Louisville, Kentucky. Phil Lewis, a front page editor for the Huffington Post shared these pictures via his twitter account Friday night."

This is an act of terrorism. A mob of leftists want to terrorize the Senate Majority leader, and a Cabinet officer. So much for the Democratic Party's peaceful transfer of power.

They use the same playbook they used in 2009 when leftists seized power.

From New York magazine on March 20, 2009:
The Connecticut Working Families Party this weekend has organized a bus store that will make stops at Wilton, Connecticut, AIG office as well as the security-patrolled homes of AIG execs who are fearing for their lives.
“We’re going to be peaceful and lawful in everything we do,” said Jon Green, the director of Connecticut Working Families. “I know there’s a lot of anger and a lot of rage about what’s happened. We’re not looking to foment that unnecessarily, but what we want to do is give folks in Bridgeport and Hartford and other parts of Connecticut who are struggling and losing their homes and their jobs and their health insurance an opportunity to see what kinds of lifestyle billions of dollars in credit-default swaps can buy.”
Right, they’re not fomenting rage, they’re just encouraging it. So if you happen to record someone’s address so you can return in the dead of night, it’s not like Working Families told you to! We know we sound paranoid and we really can’t believe we’re actually on the same side as Rush, but this is getting way out of hand. Oh, to have fat ladies in high heels clogging up the West Village again.
Such intimidation tactics have no place in American politics.

I call on the leader of the opposition party -- Barack Obama -- to denounce these acts of terrorism by his party.

Do you remember the Tea Party?

This is its exact opposite.

  1. Memo to Dems/Libs/Progs: Keep doing what you're doing. You're losing people/voters by the hour with this thuggish behavior. Keep it up.

  2. There are a couple of odd things going on here either in reporting or occurrence.

    If demonstrators, or the "generally unknown" were to try to appear at the doors of your elementary school (even in 98% Hillary DC), midday while in session, what would happen? I know what would happen in my town.

    If a crowd assembled in your neighborhood at night, creating a disturbance, noise, and most likely trespassing on private property, do you think they would be violating municipal rules/regulations for assembly and "nuisance" and therefore dispatched quickly by my county sheriff? Uh, yep. (we have three cars working at any given time in the entire county, and they would still swarm them like bees before anything got going)

    Then, there's the Utah townhall event with Jason Chaffetz. Clearly astroturfed (as they all are)--Crowd control fail.

    These are just very weird LE issues to the extent that there is no enforcement, or low level enforcement. At least, from what is being reported. I wouldn't go so far as to say "false flag", but it seems like there is a red flag in there somewhere.

  3. Dems do love the intimidation mode. Logical arguments and discussion, not so much.

  4. Woe betide these political intimidation gangs if they are soon seen to be actively denying working people gainful employment.

    "Hey, those wuckfits are stopping General Widget opening up the plant again!"

    I believe the relevant term is 'counter-charge in flank'.

  5. Vintage Uncle Saul.

    And we know how it ends when you have someone (and it ain't McConnell) who won't give in.

  6. In the election that the riots in Chicago at the Democrat convention in 1968 and which were widely broadcast in real-time, Nixon, who was not very popular, yet not really disliked, won 49 states and his opponent only what is now the fauxcahontas reservation. The democrats today seem to feel this failure cannot happen again if aggressive tactics are employed as political resistance as long as they are used in a more low grade but ceaseless manner. I hope they are wrong but 68 was long ago, the voting populace is no longer a product of the Gunsmoke era, the press is mostly dishonest, and Trump is not Nixon, who stirred but a few to personal animosity.
    A failure by Democrats in 18 using these tactics may force them into compromise mode but if they do better than expected they may hold them as default.
    To me it seems they and their media allies do not wish to preserve Obama's increasingly miserable legacy, now a peeling totem, but to color its memory by damaging the country itself. They hope to claim conditions became worse on Trump's watch, hope people will come to believe everything really was better under the indifferent gaze of their distant dark god. Memory is short, especially today, and in general we remember best what happened last.
    Yet,Trump can defeat his enemies outright by improving the life of the country on his own, giving it a positive feeling in the present tense, something always more powerful than any storied memory.

    1. It was '72 when Nixon won 49 states, not '68. The rioting at the Chicago convention did help Nixon in '68, however. Turned off a lot of Democrats who probably would've voted for Hubert Horatio, but they were afraid the inmates had taken over the asylum. They hadn't, but they would in '72.

    2. Thanks Fred. I was in error. I do better recounting things from 2000 years ago I guess

  7. Any crowds of "peaceful" demonstrators in front of Gates or Soros or Buffet homes? Maybe there should be such crowds, but with Trump signs.

  8. I think one of the two nice anonymous commenters has it right. The dems are forgetting that all of the left wing terrorism in the late sixties and early seventies got them two terms of Nixon and Ford, followed up by an idiotic and inneffective Carter and eight years of Reagan. If they think that's success, I have a bridge over the Hudson that's looking for a buyer.

  9. Mobs like that are the perfect opportunity. Arrest them all and set their bond so high they'll have plenty of time to think about it. Prosecute them to the max. If we toss enough of them in jail we may just be able to bankrupt the Nazi collaborator George Soros. At any rate, it will be a victory for the rule of law and an example for those who may be considering doing the same thing. - Elric

  10. We know Soros is behind some of these terrorist groups by providing funding to those that are listed as 501(c)3 organizations, but what about Obama? What's he up to? He's been mighty silent since January 20. I cannot imagine he's not working behind the scenes to "preserve his legacy" which is another way of saying he's working to undermine the Trump administration at every opportunity and in every way he can.
