I think some of them will be unhappy, those immediately affected. I think the rest will be happy at the excuse to start a low level shooting war that they can then use as an excuse for converting the US from a democratic form of government to a dictatorship.
I agree with your sentiment though, they can fuck right the hell off.
Maxine Waters: “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents,” Waters said at the Wilshire Federal Building, according to video of the event.
Publicly protesting the presence of members of the Presidential Cabinet in a public space because you oppose their politics is not really the same “tactics” as ambushing a medical board director alone in a parking garage because you’ve bought into some stupid-ass anti-science conspiracy hoodoo about vaccines.
I mean, this is carrying conservative disingenuous “bothsidesism” to rather ridiculous extremes. Can’t conservatives even tell the difference anymore between open ideological disagreement and paranoid counterfactual vigilantism?
Just to say that the same is happening in parts of Europe - minus the omnipresent weapons. The USA, Murdock and QAnon are contagious. Terror is spreading. No cite, corroboration can be easily found in many laguages. Scheisse.
Including that part doesn’t change anything in my observation about your clumsy attempt at manufactured “bothsidesism”. Confronting Cabinet members in public places to protest their politics is still not anything like the same “tactics” as ambushing a medical director in a deserted parking garage to intimidate them in the service of a wacko anti-science conspiracy theory.
You don’t have to like or approve of liberals getting up in the faces of conservative politicians whom they encounter in public places to denounce their politics. But you need to take the beam out of your own eye when it comes to the vastly more pathological behavior of conservatives forming loony-vigilante death cults to stalk and harass public health officials merely for doing their damn jobs to protect the public during a deadly pandemic.
