WASHINGTON: For reasons that escape me, Florida’s Republican Attorney General, Pam Bondi, bought a ticket to see the documentary film about PBS’s creepy Fred “Won’t You be my Neighbor” Rogers. While standing in line with her boyfriend, she was accosted by angry Obamacare proponents. The Trump resistance corps led by Maxine Waters (D-CA).
Surrounding your enemy
How the angry lefties at Organize Florida happened to find the theater Bondi was at is likely due to the deep-seeded need among many politicians to inform the world, through social media, of their thoughts, interests and geographic whereabouts.
You’d think they, especially Republicans, would follow President Trump’s stellar example and exclusively use social media as a means to press nouns against verbs to blow-up people.
Anyway, Bondi’s spokesperson told the Tampa Bay Times that “large men” got “in the Attorney General’s face, spitting and blocking her exit.”
Bondi later gave the newspaper your typical, cringe-worthy, low-energy Republican response:
“We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences. That’s what Mister Rogers is all about.”
Mr. Rogers, a name that will live as long as men are free.
Food for thought
And then there’s White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was denied service at a Lynchburg, Va., eatery because, as the establishment’s co-owner told her, she works for an “inhumane and unethical” administration, POLITICO reported.
And speaking of restaurants, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was chowing down at a Mexican establishment when protestors outside began chanting, “If kids don’t eat in peace, you don’t eat in peace.” They were angered at the Trump administration’s decision to enforce U.S. immigration laws enacted by Congress.
Troubled Maxine Waters
While giving a speech at a protest rally, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters encouraged members of the so-called “’resistance” to follow suit:
“If you see anybody from that [Trump] 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.”
What all this means, of course, is that the Trump administration is winning on the economy, winning its war on fake news and, more importantly, winning on the issue of illegal immigration.
Waters is really directing her ire at America’s Trump-supporting Deplorables and saying, “This could be you.”
A punch in the face
She would be wise to remember what happened at Trump’s 2016 campaign rallies across the country. When protesters attempted to interrupt a Trump stump speech in Tennessee, all the candidate had to say was, “Get ‘em out of here.”
With that, Trump supporters manhandled the unruly lefties a bit before tossing them into the street. Such protests soon faded.
And there are plenty of YouTube video showing militant and violent ANTIFA stormtroopers who hide beneath black hoods and wield bludgeons, having their heads handed them by annoyed and less-intimidating pedestrians in white t-shirts and jeans.
Not your daddy’s protest movement
The resistance of today is not quite that of their 60s mommas and papas. And despite the massive anti-Vietnam War protests of the time, the counterculture’s fervor waned with every self-indulgent bong hit. These stumbling and inconsequential stoners eventually gave way to the age of Ronald Reagan.
Gun-clingers will better the instruction
The folks in fly-over country aren’t quite the pushovers populating the very active imaginations of resistors. These are the people Obama once described as “bitter” rustbelt voters who “cling to guns or religion.”
The most important object in Obama’s statement, of course, was “guns.”
If Maxine Waters thinks Deplorables can be intimidated, President Trump sent the silly monosyllabic crackpot a tweet to disabuse her of that notion:
“Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democratic Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!”
And President Trump certainly has a better sense of the nation’s mood than any pea-brained congressional moron, of either party, in swampy Washington, D.C.
