Liberals threaten ‘American Spring,’ insurrection if Trump signs religious freedom executive order

On Friday, Newsbusters reported that liberals are threatening an insurrection — an “American Spring” of sorts — if President Donald Trump signs a draft executive order that protects religious freedom.  According to liberals, doing so would protect Christians, and this simply will not do because, as the fake news Washington Post columnist Catherine Rampell claims, Christians would bring a form of sharia law to the U.S. — seriously.

According to Newsbusters:

Early this week, The Nation’s Sarah Posner published a leaked copy of a draft executive order “establishing a government-wide initiative to respect religious freedom.” Some liberals are planning an insurrection if it gets enforced.

“If Trump signs a ‘religious freedom’ executive order, this country will EXPLODE,” Huff Post Queer Executive Editor Noah Michelson tweeted. “That’s not a threat, it’s a PROMISE. Get yourselves ready.”

Linking to an article about the proposed order, Star Trek actor George Takei threatened: “If Trump signs this, prepare for an #AmericanSpring the likes of which the nation has never seen.”

Later, he criticized the Trump administration’s “threats” to the LGBT community. “You want to see us #OccupyDC? Because we WILL,” he darkly hinted.

The ACLU was blunt in its response to the news. Linking to a Vice video which speculated over the executive order, the progressive legal group tweeted: “If he does [sign it], we will sue.”

The left-wing “Nation” admitted in an update:

A White House officialspeaking with ABC News, did not dispute the authenticity of the draft religious freedom executive order, but officials said it is one of hundreds circulating, some drafted by the transition team, others by the White House, not all of which are likely to become policy. The official did not say who drafted this particular order.

Got that?  It’s a draft — one of many — and there’s no indication that Trump will even sign it.  But the Trump-hating left is already working itself up into a frenzy.

Let’s face it — the modern American left is no longer the loyal opposition.  It now seeks insurrection and is ready to impose its will through threats of force, violence and intimidation.
