Seems like if we’re comparing French and Americans in terms of their response to unpopular government actions, the latter have been passive.
Hell, 64 million Americans voted for Trump, ostensibly because they were tired of business as usual, but they seem remarkably satisfied to let him continue on with the establishment as is, and even sit by while he himself takes advantage.
The political process is working, just not for the people. Trump was supposed to change that, but he has turned out to be just another self-absorbed elitist full of empty promises while he continues to enrich himself. I am thoroughly disillusioned with him and the so-called conservative media figures who continue to carry water for him
True, but now the cities where immigration has had terrible results over the last couple of decades have found themselves with allies in the rural parts of the country over the gas/diesel tax so they have essentially joined two disparate groups together in opposition to the overall progressive agenda and their “anti Movement” seems to be gaining rather than losing steam.
And the democrats dumped this garbage heap on the country. Wasn’t;t it a democrat that said you could keep your insurance? Wasn’t it a democrat that said you will save 2500 on insurance? Wasn’t it a democrat that said you could keep your doctor?
Wasn’t it the democrats who increased taxes on the middle class to pay for this trash?
Wasn’t it the democrats who said the ACA wouldn’t increase the debt???
Obamacare will increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released today
The Tea Party is arguably the largest peace movement in American history. The Tea Party has nothing to do with Charlottesville or militias.
Established is a Freedom Caucus, and without the TP there is no Trump. Firmly rooted it is largely underground and remains largely untouched and untapped. Many holdovers from Reagans silent majority and their spawn continue to educate the future generations.
The French do it differently but they have seen the NAZI’S and other hoards repeatedly overrun their country historically. While I would never burn a car in protest or harm anyone physically as a Tea Party member I wouldn’t hesitate to make life miserable to save freedom for my children and grandchildren and future generations of Americns.
My comment was that Tea Partiers employed violent rhetoric. While we can go back and forth as to who and what the Tea Party is/was (as they were by and large loosely organized with no centralized organization or leadership) the signs they displayed at numerous demonstrations provide ample validation:
