Voters will decide in November whether or not we wish to live under mob rule. If Republicans keep a majority in the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, we will know that mob rule has been rejected. If Democrats take control of either or both Houses, we will know that the majority of Americans want to be controlled by mobs.
There is a giant difference between standing up for our beliefs and trying to force our beliefs on other people through violence. Every single time in the past two years that Republicans “won” a contest of any kind, Democrats/liberals/progressives have reacted with mob rule. They started to riot as soon as the announcement was made that Donald Trump was the next President of the United States, and they continued their violence-prone protests through the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
After describing some of the protest movements of the Left, David Harsanyi asks the following pertinent question, “If all of this were true, the question would be: Why aren’t more people joining a mob? If your government is stealing your country, why wouldn’t you embrace boorishness or even violence?”
Democrats, such as Hillary Clinton, are calling for more civility even as Leftists are the ones acting without civility. The simple fact is that Republicans have developed a backbone and are standing up for their principle, and this deliberate action has sent Democrats and their supporters into a wild frenzy. Harsanyi continues with his explanation as to why Democrats are calling for civility from Republicans even as they call for more violence from their supporters. An example is former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder saying that Republicans should be kicked when they go “low.”
Yet Democrats still act perplexed by the backlash. Even now the mob within their ranks is being cast, predictably, as a conservative fiction. “Republicans Seize On `Angry Mob’ Mantra To Keep Their Midterm Base Fired Up,” says NPR. CNN insists that it’s a normal, everyday demonstration of free expression to chase politicians’ wives out of public places. You may not use the word “mob” in their presence.
No, it’s not the Parisian mob. Not yet. It’s more like one of those illiberal campus mobs that attempt, often successfully, to shut down debate. A mob is a disorderly crowd of people who have the intent of causing trouble or violence.
So, for example, that means people who interrupt lawful proceedings or people who wildly bang on the Supreme Court doors when a vote doesn’t go their way or people who surround politicians (and their families) and chase them out of restaurants or people who join groups that smear other Americans without evidence – those who try to undermine the rule of law through intimidation.
Democrats and the media refuse to admit that their followers have turned into mobs. They will not even allow the word “mob” to be uttered in their presence. Even though this leftist mob mentality has not gone main stream yet, there is a definite chance that it can because the Democrats and their supporters want it to be widespread.
There are probably several actions that can be taken to limit or totally stop mob rule. The most important action that ordinary Americans can take is to vote Democrats out of power. We can help President Trump to create a Red Wave in November that would elect men and women who support the Rule of Law and reject mob rule. Vote Republican and end mob rule!
