Since the November election, riots and political violence by the radical left have become the new normal.
These shocking displays have left many Americans wondering, “Why?”
After all, despite reports of widespread Democratic voter fraud, the election was a peaceful event. So what’s the point of protests that end with burning cars and violence against strangers?
The goal these organizers say is the purpose of this anarchy is chilling: In their own words, these rioters are aiming to create “new governing institutions, new economic relationships, and new ways of being human” through violent resistance.
The radical left has launched an evolving, underground movement that aims to undermine Trump and his potential supporters everywhere they go with bloodshed and anarchy — and there are early signs that it’s having an impact.
The Trump name alone is enough to spark outrage. There are plans for a unruly demonstration at Trump Tower in Chicago. Congressional offices are being flooded with threatening emails, social media messages and calls jamming phone lines.
Hundreds of angry protesters are flocking to town halls and local congressional offices to threaten violence. For example, Republican lawmakers in California and Florida faced raucous crowds last weekend.
“The situation was rapidly escalating into a riot,” said California Rep. Tom McClintock, who had to be extracted by police from an event in downtown Roseville, the population center of his sprawling congressional district. “One thing came through loud and clear: They were not angry at President Trump for breaking any of his promises — they were angry at him for keeping them.”
This is the goal, say organizers, of some of the efforts.
Trump and some Republicans shrug it off as sore losers unwilling to accept the results of the election. The president’s core supporters, in states like Iowa and Wisconsin, applaud him as a man of action, delivering on his campaign promises to move quickly and shake up Washington.
But the truth is that these acts of violence aren’t simply soar grapes. These are coordinated attacks by radical leftists to make America, in their own words, “ungovernable”.
They want to remake our American government through violence and chaos. It’s literally treason.
Recent presidents never faced the kind of multi-front opposition that Trump is now experiencing so early in their terms.

It’s not just the White House that’s being targeted, either. These displays of angry protests have been aimed not only at Trump but at lawmakers, world leaders and corporate executives who might be tempted to work with him to pass key parts of his agenda, like replacing the health care law or rewriting trade agreements.
“The level of mobilization against Trump is almost like nothing I’ve ever seen before,” said Joe Dinkin, spokesman for the Working Families Party, which coordinates weekly anti-Trump events across the country, bragged to The Associated Press.
Until something is done, the violence isn’t going away.
And it may grow worse.
