Liberals Are Protesting Trump By Putting On Shirts and Wandering Around...Literally

Remember the days when “protesting” meant doing more than squatting in public and just being generally obnoxious?

Moments like the Greensboro sit-in, when the Greensboro Four kicked off a chain of non-violent protests against racial segregation, risking arrest, assault, or worse. Or Ghandi’s Salt March in defiance of British law. The grueling 50-mile trek to Selma. When a single man faced down a line of tanks in Tiananmen Square.

Then again, "protesting" also used to mean confronting a tyrannical government or unjust law, and not just a president you didn't vote for.

Today, on the other hand, the progressive version of resisting an allegedly “oppressive” government is….wearing t-shirts and walking around. And that’s exactly what they did this week, when a small(ish) group of anti-Trump leftists donned matching t-shirts that read “Trump is Guilty” or spelled out “REMOVE TRUMP” and silently milled about a Senate building in Washington, D.C.

That’s it. That’s literally all they did.

“To advocate for Trump's impeachment and removal, protesters are quietly walking around in circles in the Hart Senate building. Organizers say they will be here everyday,” reported Townhall reporter Julio Rosas.
 


“I did ask the group's spokesperson if they have jobs,” Rosas continued. "Some people have taken time off from work...Our country is in danger and you have to make a choice to go away from your families and friends and your work and sacrifice your life for the better good of the nation."
 


Ah, liberal protests. Basically the Boston Tea Party, but without the actual doing of something.

But while progressives may see “resistance" here, all I see are a bunch of people with way too much free time and far too little employment.
