John Boehner probably isn’t the only member of Congress who’d like to curse out Ted Cruz on national television. The senator has been clamoring for another pointless government shutdown, this time over federal funding for Planned Parenthood, but on Monday night the Senate moved to keep the government funded — at least for the next few months.
One such politician is councilwoman Kshama Sawant of Seattle. Sawant believes that the anti-Trump sentiment in this country is just beginning to flourish, and she is walking a very fine line with the laws regarding inciting a riot with there latest plan of action.
“Sawant is encouraging demonstrators to shut down Trump’s inauguration in January. Here’s what to know about Sawant’s call for protests.
“In a packed post-election rally at Seattle City Hall on Wednesday afternoon, Socialist councilmember Kshama Sawant called for a massive protest on Wednesday night and a nationwide shutdown on Inauguration Day in response to president-elect Donald Trump.
“I appeal to you, [Wednesday] at 4 o’clock, at Westlake [Park], let’s have a massive protest, and tell America we do not accept a racist agenda,” Sawant said. “And let’s make sure on Inauguration Day … let’s do a nationwide shutdown.”Sawant has been a rabble-rouser in the past, with an arrest record stemming from a protest over the minimum wage of airline workers in 2014. The far left councilwoman has yet to meet with authorities over what could be construed as instigating a riot.
