“Republicans are painting Democrats and activists as dangerous mobs despite the fact that right-wing terrorists have LITERALLY killed people.
Democrats urged voters not to hand over power to an angry Tea Party mob in 2010, when the Obama White House and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sought to hold on to the House majority.
Eight years later, the tables have been turned, and it is President Trump and a GOP Congress who are warning voters against putting a radical, left-wing mob in charge of Washington.
The Democratic arguments in 2010 failed, at least as measured by the ballot box. Republicans gained 63 seats and took back the House majority.
Republicans, however, think their arguments will succeed this time around given the tactics of the so-called resistance to Trump, which has included heated confrontations with senators and administration officials in restaurants, airports and the hallways of the Capitol.
