Liberal activists are gearing up to ensure there will be no peaceful transition of power on January 20, 2017. Tweets calling for a “DisruptJ20” actions have gone viral and likely sparking a host of safety concerns for the Secret Service. Donald Trump will not be deterred — he will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States!
The DisruptJ20 activists are essentially planning riots in Washington, D.C. on inauguration day. The potential rioters are planning “direct action” to create “total paralysis” as Donald J. Trump takes the oath of office.
“We’re not just organizing some boring-ass march,” Legba Carrefour, one of the DisruptJ20 movement leaders, told Vocativ. “We want direct action.”
The anti-Trumpers behind the planned disruption are allegedly trying to network all types of activist groups to converge as one in Washington on January 20. Carrefour said the ultimate goal is to “build on an evolving movement.”
Legba Carrefour has been entrenched in “radical activism” for about two decades. He said he wants the disruption activists to follow the example set by the Black Live Matter movement.
The “direct action” Carrefour is envisioning on inauguration day is to block highways around the city and to engage in activities which can include non-violent and “less often violent” antics that target specific people, property, or groups, which the activists feel have become offensive.
Some of the Twitter users who are passing around the #DisruptJ20 hashtag are openly actively calling for violent to thwart the Donald Trump transition. Carrefour would not state during the interview whether or not he encourages, or even condones, violence during the protests.
“We’re just providing an infrastructure. I can’t comment on what anyone else is doing,” Carrefour added. He could comment if he wanted to – he just chose not to. Inciting a riot is illegal, which Carrefour surely knows.
“In my 20 years of doing radical activism I’ve never seen an uprise or a social unrest like I have with this,” Carrefour said. “And for good reason.” The good reason? He did not elaborate. Apparently electing a president who will uphold the Constitution, put America and Americans first, is just too offensive a concept for Liberals to understand, let alone applaud.
What type of “infrastructure” is his group providing to the anti-Trump activists? They are securing housing for out of town protesters, meet up spaces, water for the marches, and forums for the various groups to organize their frivolous efforts to stop Donald Trump from reaching the White House.
Washington, D.C. police officials and federal agents are already deeply engaged security planning for January 20. They are reportedly expecting up to 30,000 protesters. A total of 16 different activist groups has already signed up to be a part of the DisruptJ20 protest. Some of the groups have reportedly been prone to violence and rioting in the past.
