The liberal left has done an incredibly effective job of convincing their followers that they are the protagonists in some Hollywood movie plot.
You see, they keep pushing this “resistance” schtick, allowing their base to pretend that they are seem aggrandized band of freedom fighters who are saving the world…or something. Everyone has these fantasies of being important and standing up to powerful bad guys, so the Democrats just played into this innate, archetypal desire by christening this unorganized mob.
It’s a childish bit of low-grade psychology, and it’s terrifying just how well it’s worked on the leftists of our nation.
Take, for instance, the fact that President Donald Trump can’t even pay his respects to the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg without being booed.
President Donald Trump received a harsh reception as he and First Lady Melania Trump paid their respects to recently departed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. After the president emerged from the front of the Supreme Court, a crowd could be heard loudly booing and then chanting, “Vote him out!”
Video of the incident was soon making the rounds on Twitter:
Here is Trump getting booed as he stands behind RBG’s casket at SCOTUS. The crowd then chants “vote him out” and “honor her wish.” He shuffles away pretty quickly. pic.twitter.com/gTUh2Ab8db

This is the carte-blanche “resistance” at its most insensitive, and we have the Democrats to thank for such an embarrassing national moment.
