Democrats Pull Out One Last Stop

The Democrats have spent the last two months since Donald Trump was elected president trying to find some way to either make it not so, or make themselves believe it’s not so. And they’ve used backup plan after backup plan to try and make it happen. From vote recounts to faithless electors to Russian spies — they’ve pulled out all the stops.
They even brought out the heavy artillery earlier in the week at the Golden Globe Awards, when in an award speech, Meryl Streep seemed to draw on all the haughty, condescending, stuck-up women she has ever played on the silver screen (and beautifully so, we might add). Her performance on this particular stage was an attempt to convince everyone that she and the rest of the other Hollywood automatons in the room had been savagely villainized by the rest of the world for their noble thoughts and opinions. Then she went on to admonish the non-Hollywood types for electing a monster like Donald Trump.
What she failed to realize, of course, was that Trump’s election was as much a mandate against people who think and act like her, and all the other Hollywood automatons present, as it was anything else. How’s that for dramatic irony, Ms. Streep?
Now that the liberals have tried to play the card of shame unsuccessfully, it appears they’re going to attempt one last stand next week — at the inauguration ceremonies in Washington D.C.. When asked, the protesters seemed to struggle with the REASON why they felt this was necessary, they seemed to agree on one thing — they’re going to “shut it down.” And by that, they mean EVERYTHING. It is simply a campaign of disruption. They intend to disrupt anything associated with celebrating the installation of Donald Trump as 45th president of the United States.
In an audio tape of an organizational meeting where planning for these disruptions was taking place, one of the speakers said they planned to “do everything we can to try and stop people from being able to access the inauguration.”
They have plans to put blockades at security checkpoints, and plan to block entrance points, roads, and transportation as well. They are having a “dance party” in front of Mike Pence’s house, and intend to crash Trump’s inauguration ball.
The protests are slated to begin with a “civil rights” march by those who have accused Trump of being racist because of some of his comments regarding Muslims and Mexicans. Reverend Al Sharpton is going to lead a march along the National Mall, which organizers say could draw as many as 25,000 people. The biggest march will be the Women’s March on Saturday after the inauguration, that could draw as many as 200,000. In terms of the numbers, who knows? These things always have a tendency to fizzle out at the last minute as cooler heads prevail.
But, the best part about all this for Trump supporters? The fact that the police, Secret Service, and our military will be ALL OVER IT.  Even the  “Bikers for Trump,” are planning to “have Trump’s back” in the event their assistance is needed.
It’s not clear what the objective is here. It’s not even clear that THEY’RE clear. But the rest of us can just sit back and watch the show. Frankly, it may not be a bad thing. The Dems have been in such a dither for the last two months, they need a little release in a really big way. So, maybe this will give them a chance to blow off a little steam.
At the end of the day, Donald Trump is still going to be the president. Everyone can like it, love it, or hate it, but it’s going to happen. The best thing we can do is get behind it and hope for the best, because we’re all riding this train, like it or not.
