“As we cheer for the teens leading the resistance, it’s crucial we recognize the roadblocks they face”

This was the subtitle on a Medium story, and it is hard to see how a single sentence could be more wrong. No-one but violent anti-Trump fanatics are cheering for these idiots: it is not a resistance, it’s sedition, and they are not teens: in the main, the black shirts of Antifa and the mis-named “resistance” are violent young men in their twenties.

I hope the “roadblocks they face” are manned by heavly armed police: it is crucial that lawless rioters are slapped down wherever they pop up to riot in the streets. They are “resistance” against the legally elected President of the USA: that makes them traitors or rebels, not heroes to be cheered for.
