    Default Republican Scaremongering - Democrats Are 'The Mob'

    Republicans are using fear mongering tactics and criticism of the “mob” to energize Republican voters.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) bragged on Monday that Republicans “stood up to the mob.”
    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) criticized Democrats last week for encouraging “mob rule.”
    Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) on Friday seized on President Donald Trump’s latest suggestion that those protesting Kavanaugh’s confirmation are “a paid mob trying to prevent senators from doing the will of their constituents.”
    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) tweeted criticism of the media’s coverage of the “angry mob” of protesters storming the “steps of the Supreme Court building.”
    Trump even chimed in on Saturday night during a rally, as the Post notes, calling Democrats an “angry mob.”

    Gengalndoh has already used the term in a thread.

    I wish he were stupid, he's just deplorable, amoral and rat cunning. The antithesis of "presidential" .

    He's the most consequential President of the last 25 years if for no other reason he has taught the conservatives how to have a spine and punch back twice as hard.

    Trump has exceeded my expectations in virtually every way, his presidency so far a resounding success. The rest of the party is catching on.

    Settle in, Peter. There will be an ebb and flow as always, but the Trumpies are here to stay.

    So in your opinion America is leaving the civilised world for it's own dark cell? You may be right but I hope not.

    He's wrong. Trumpism will be an ugly little footnote in history, and twenty years from now most of today's Trump voters will pretend he never existed.

    The Republicans learned very well from the Nazis that their success depends entirely on the selection of an opponent to demonize and serve as the focus of all the blame and cause of all of their supposed woes. The Nazis had the Jews. Republicans have liberals and Democrats. Trumpkins have brown people and "illegals".
    I rather be an American than a Republican.
