Acts of hate-filled violence against Republicans seem to be happening every single day.
And Elizabeth Warren just put some fuel on the flames of hatred.
People are reeling about the statements she just made.
In a town hall meeting in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren issued calls for resistance against Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers.
In her hour-long town hall, there were multiple calls for resistance by both Senator Warren and the 600 attendees in the audience.
Reported by The Berkshire Eagle:
“After brief remarks, the senator answered questions on a wide range of topics. Health care and political action against the administration of President Donald Trump dominated the conversation. The senator cautioned the audience on what to expect from the latter.
“Keep in mind that right behind Trump is another Republican who does not share our values,” said Warren. “You get to fight because it’s the fight that matters.”
Her remarks on resistance echoed in the theater — especially to Helen Haerhan Moon, a candidate for the Pittsfield City Council Ward 1 seat.
“As a young woman getting involved in Massachusetts politics, hearing Elizabeth Warren is inspiring,” Moon told The Eagle.
Warren told the crowd that there’s still much to be done to keep up the fight against the Republican agenda — especially now that the GOP has released their version of health care legislation.
“If this is not the time to stand up and fight back, then I don’t know when it comes,” said Warren.”
These calls to stand up and fight back have been taken literally by people like James T. Hodgkinson, the far-left radical who shot Congressman Steve Scalise in a hate-filled assault last month.
Hodgkinson’s assault was a direct attack on Republicans. Before opening fire, he even asked for confirmation that his intended targets were Republican.
The increasingly violent resistance has been responsible for a string of vicious protests against Trump-supporting Americans, most famously in Berkeley, California, where a right-wing speaker was reason enough for them to riot in the streets and cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.
This resistance movement is encouraged by the same scare tactics presented by people like Elizabeth Warren, and Warren didn’t seem to steer away from it.
When asked about taking direct action against the Republican Party and President Trump, Warren had this to say, per The Berkshire Eagle:
“Warren delivered a call to action in response to a question of what to do with political energy.
“One voice is loud, two are twice as loud, 10 are 10 times as loud,” said Warren. “10,000 is a movement.”
These are words from someone who is considered to be one of the top contenders for President against Trump in 2020.
While she didn’t address a Presidential run during her town hall, she did announce she will be running for Senate re-election in 2018.
What do you think?
Would Elizabeth Warren be able to beat President Trump in 2020?
