Liberal protest could crash on itself



The leftist tide of anti-Trump loathing and hatred has turned into a tsunami of hysteria that Michael Goodwin says is like sounding five alarms for a dumpster fire. These people are so terrified of a country without liberal progressivism that it's no longer enough to call Trump a racist and a bigot who hates minorities. That's standard fare for anyone who disagrees with them. Now, they're calling him a psychopathic billionaire, or, as Kathleen Parker said recently, "a traitor who's siding with the enemy," but she's just confusing him with Obama.

The intensity of the liberal opposition to Trump's election is not only sinister and unprecedented, it's dangerous. After the election, a 50-year-old man was brutally assaulted and seriously beaten. Why? Because he voted for Trump. Seven feral  blacks kidnapped, tied, gagged, mocked, viciously beat and tortured a special needs man for hours, saying "F—Donald Trump" and "F—white people" while live-streaming it on Facebook. Malik Zulu Shabazz, former chairman of the New Black Panther Party, once said, "White man's gonna find out what it's like when the black man takes over."

With all the civil disobedience in Ferguson, St. Louis, New York City, and other places around the country, now Obama's chief instigator of racial unrest, Al Sharpton, is promising us another season of "civil disobedience—which is "a state of lawlessness or political disorder in disregard of existing government authority," which Webster's Dictionary calls anarchy. My question is how can these forward-looking liberals define a wholesale campaign of lawlessness and political disorder as a step toward progress? However, beware liberals, or you might find all your hysteria and civil unrest splintered on the rocky shores of the Trump administration.
