Default #TheResistance is the highest form of Patriotism!

I kid you not...

This "comedian" and CNN contributor wants you to know that not only turning Memorial Day into an attack on the president is hunky-dory, but resisting the president is MORE patriotic that those who've died for our country...

The biggest problem with that, is that it is those attacking Trump who are attempting to destroy the democratic process.

Those chickens would help the resistance a thousand times better if they only learned to wipe their asses.

uh...no.

Saying you disagree with the president and not getting arrested for it is exactly what democracy is.

That is the First Amendment in action. You know, that little piece of paper that certain left leaning groups want to dismantle?

We don't live in a democracy, we live in a Republic. The Resistance is an example of mob rule undermining the Republic. From the moment Trump won the election the Resistance has spewed blind hatred towards him and dedicated itself to destroying him, his administration and personally.

It is far more than disagreeing with the President the Resistance is a toxic mixture of hatred and resentment that licenses any means no matter how destructive to the Republic in the service of its goal. Corrupting the DOJ and intelligence agencies into partisan political weapons practicing political sabotage like the old KGB, no problem. Defying Federal immigration law at the state level, patriotic. Reflexive condemnation of the President at every turn, even to the point of supporting murderous street gangs, approved. Invoking arcane Senate rules to delay confirmations for literally years, courageous.

The Resistance is anything but a celebration of first amendment rights. It is a movement dedicated to banana republic style mob rule. The chosen candidate lost the election so the winner must be destroyed at all costs.

Our Republic is a compact based on the concept that the President is chosen by a majority of states every four years. That person occupies an "office" of management of the government, not rule of the people, until he retires after two terms. For a disgruntled minority, or majority, who are dissatisfied with the election results to resist via anything but political pressure, free speech, civil disobedience or the voting booth, is not by any stretch of the imagination, a patriotic endeavor.

Equating violent disruption of government and civil functions, destruction of property and endangerment of human lives to patriotism is insane. And should result in arrests. it violates the compact to which we all should accept allegiance. If we are in defiance of that agreement between all citizens, then we are in defiance of that Democratic Republic. Justifying violence, property destruction, as a matter of political pressure in lieu of persuasive arguments, to force the outcome of an election is unacceptable in a civilized state. And by no reasonable definition "patriotic."

Put more simply,,,; We either have the rule of law with equal application, or the Republic is no longer.

The current president was elected by a democratic process. Those opposing the president only oppose him because he was elected. He has done not one thing to corrupt the process, but those opposing him have tied up months in phony investigations, launched spurious false attacks, claimed every evil thing against him they could make up. Protesting his policies is one thing, senseless, mindless attacks are an entirely different kettle of fish.
