Groups Including “Democratic Socialists” To Harass Republican Lawmakers On July 4th

Some people on the far left are planning to spend their holiday weekend harassing Republicans over the new GOP healthcare bill. This is all the left has to offer now. No ideas, just rage.

The Daily Beast reported:

Health-Care Activists Plan to Make GOP’s July 4 Hell

The Senate’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare may be in a state of purgatory, but progressive activists would like to send it straight to hell.

As the July 4th recess approaches, progressive political organizations like MoveOn, Our Revolution, Indivisible and CREDO, among others, are planning to keep up their momentum with peaceful protests at local Republican senators’ offices, floods of phone calls and even appearances at local Independence Day parades.

“Republican senators have demonstrated that their number one goal in health care reform is avoiding any public interaction with their constituents,” Ben Wikler, the Washington director for the political advocacy group MoveOn told The Daily Beast in a phone interview.

Which is why, he said, activists will attempt to get face time with them along July 4th parade routes and other public appearances in their home states. The goal is to ensure that the senators who have said they would not vote for the Better Care Reconciliation Act, the Senate’s repeal bill, stick to their word and that any senator who has yet to weigh in, joins their colleagues in voting no…

In conjunction with Democracy Spring, a civil resistance organization, Democratic Socialists of America and the People’s Consortium, a progressive political advocacy organization, Our Revolution will stage peaceful sit-ins at the offices of 15 Republican senators in the coming week.

Pray that there’s no violence. Things are reaching a boiling point in our nation already.
