Leah wrote a column in The Daily Caller Tuesday about how the venom from the left toward President Trump and his supporters is a lot like what Wisconsin conservatives endured during the 2011 protests over collective bargaining reform.
Read the full column here.
“The anger, hate and venom being directed by Democrats toward anyone who supports President Trump is déjà vu for conservatives in Wisconsin.
“When I worked with Governor Walker to take on the union bosses who were bankrupting our state, we were shouted down, harassed and even threatened simply for standing up for what we believed in and delivering on our promises.”
“Unfortunately, we learned firsthand that when the unhinged cannot win on the issues, they will attempt to win through the politics of personal destruction.
“America is winning in so many ways with President Trump — from appointing judges who believe in the Constitution and delivering historic tax cuts to cutting regulations that strangle our small businesses and telling foreign nations that we will not bow to them. Because they can’t battle these wins, liberal ugliness will get worse before it gets better; desperate liberal politicians like Tammy Baldwin know no other way.”
“Conservatives have stood up to the unhinged left before, and we cannot be afraid to do so again. Intimidation, scare tactics and threats of violence didn’t stop the Walker-GOP agenda in Wisconsin, and it will not stop President Trump from draining the swamp, either.”
