- Pennsylvania Democratic Party coordinator Gene Stilp: The demonstration season isn’t even in full swing yet.
- Protest movement is being driven in part by a “shadow government” or “deep state” funded by top Democratic and liberal donors.
- ‘Let’s try and go on for two years, you know, without swooning in fatigue.”
From Washington Examiner:
Democratic party officials and other leaders of the anti-Trump “Resistance” are putting Republican House and Senate members on notice that they will step up their disruptive protest tactics this summer.
“The demonstration season isn’t even in full swing yet,” said Gene Stilp, a Pennsylvania Democratic Party coordinator.
In an interview with Sinclair TV’s Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson, he added, “This spring and the summer you’re going see people really get active. These guys are going to be afraid to even cross the state line to come back into Pennsylvania.”
Andrea Walker, described as an anti-Trump activist, said, “There’s an incredible amount of things that we could do including pick up marches, you get an email and it says for you just to go and you know, ‘Tomorrow show up here!'”
She added, “What I’m hoping for is to make this as easy as possible for people to have a sustained protest. Let’s try and go on for two years, you know, without swooning in fatigue.”
Over the past week, protests and shouting matches at the town halls held by lawmakers have escalated and the Examiner’s David Drucker reported that “resistance” leaders are using the firing of FBI Director James Comey to stoke the anti-Trump fire.
Attkisson, whose show appears on Sinclair stations Sunday morning and live streams online, raises concerns that the protest movement is being driven in part by a “shadow government” or “deep state” funded by top Democratic and liberal donors.
