Leader of Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Says He Wants Civil War in America

By

As we get further into Trump’s presidency, the true nature and agenda of the liberal “resistance” is becoming increasingly clear.

They aren’t about working together for a better America, and they certainly aren’t about respecting the outcome of our democratic process.

All they’re about is violently achieving their own agenda with no tolerance or regard for the positions of others.

Yvon Chouinard, the eccentric billionaire environmentalist who founded and heads outdoor apparel company Patagonia, has already made a name for herself as a leader in the anti-Trump resistance.

A couple of months ago, Patagonia’s CEO, Rose Marcario, announced that the company had donated no less than $1 MILLION to anti-Trump forces both in the government and acting independently.

But what Chouinard just said about not only Trump supporters, but all conservatives in America takes things to another level entirely.

Said Chouinard:

“Why should we kowtow to these redneck voters and Republican politicians? The most you can achieve is a compromise, and that never solves a problem.”


This is incredibly troubling for a number of reasons.

The first is the obvious suggestion that those who voted for Trump are less educated than the rest of America. This is a form of demonization, of degrading your opponents so as to make incitement against them more palatable.

The second is the clear disregard for America’s democratic process. The people elected President Trump, and liberals must accept that. Just as conservatives had no choice but to accept that Barack Obama had been elected, twice.

The third and most worrying aspect of Chouinard comment is eschewing political compromise. Chouinard, like so many other liberals, isn’t interested in finding common ground so that all Americans can move forward together.

He wants to overthrow the will of the majority. And the only way to do that is through violence and civil unrest. Which can only lead to one end–civil war.
