Sen. Grassley: The Resistance is a 'Reflection of the Incivility of American Society'


Ugh, the “resistance.” Of course people who take their own words, that they most likely got from somewhere else, would come up with such a self-righteous title. It’s like they think that they actually have some kind of war to fight, when in actuality, the only war they typically fight is in their own minds.

It seems as though Republicans have had enough of the “resistance,” and that’s why Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and others have been so outspoken in recent weeks about the protesters who shun facts in favor of getting their way.

Grassley, who is also the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, joined “Fox & Friends” Friday morning to talk about the upcoming vote on whether or not to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and the “resist-ance” that Senate offices have seen recently.

Here's part of what Grassley said:

I think it’s a reflection of the incivility of American society, generally. And I think it’s also evidence that people will go to any length when they’re encouraged by people on Capitol Hill, like one congresswoman saying, ‘Confront them in the restaurants.’ And another senator saying, ‘Get in their face.’ We as senators ought to be setting examples for civility, not encouraging incivility. You’ve heard about the resist-ance since November 2016. You’re seeing the resist-ance headquarters right here on Capitol Hill, all among Democrats.

Grassley kept putting a little flavor on the title “resistance,” almost mocking the use of the title, as if these protesters believe they’re on the same level as the movement in France that fought against the Nazi German occupation of their country.

Pro-tip: They’re not.
