Democrats call those who disagree with them, “the mob.” Democrats think only their side is allowed to protest and organize, and only against their political opposition. When the other side does it, they whine like the little bitches that they are. They call those who don’t get in line and follow them “divisive.”
The way the Democrats think it should work is like this. Congressman Jerkwater doesn’t want to support the ObamaCare Bill, so they offer him a $40 million courthouse in his district and $2 million in his re-election fund to buy his vote. Then, he goes back to his district and holds a “townhall” where he lectures his constituents on all the great things he’s doing in Washington. They lock out people who disagree with them, while letting their union thug supporters in. They send out phony letters from fake constituents proclaiming support for ObamaCare. And they think that’s how the system should work.
Democracy is not crushing, locking out, shutting up, or demonizing all disagreement. Democracy *is* disagreement. Democracy isn’t citizens sitting politely while their elected “betters” issue edicts from on high. Democracy is raucous. Democracy is loud. And when the elected betters are too arrogant to listen, Democracy can be rude and in-your-face.
