Democrats don’t like “resistance” when it’s used against their party. Who knew?
Despite Jerry Brown using “goon squads” to intimidate voters, and angry Democratic Party leaders verbally assaulting signature gatherers, organizers of the effort to recall California state Sen. Josh Newman (D-Orange County) gathered 85,000 signatures in support of a recall election.
Sensing Newman’s vulnerability, legislators changed the recall rules ex post facto (which will assuredly be legally challenged by recall supporters), and now Democrats are stepping up their attacks on people who organize dissent in the state.
College students. Or, more specifically, three College Republicans who volunteered as signature gatherers.
That’s right. The California Democratic Party is suing them, accusing them of lying to voters and saying that the recall would repeal the gas tax.
First of all, that any California Democratic Party official or candidate would accuse Republicans of lying to get votes – and say it with a straight face – is a massive insult. These are the people whose confiscatory gun control scheme was called “Safety for All” in ads. These are the people who claim that sanctuary cities are simply shielding hard-working, law-abiding, family-centered immigrants from being deported. These are the people who call taxpayers “freeloaders” when they finally get sick of forking over the highest gas taxes in the nation.
