Democrats: Stop the Public Confrontations

IndieDems states without reservation: the public confrontations that some so-called liberals, progressives, or Democrats have staged with Republican officials as targets are wrong. They are dead wrong. These types of tactics have no place in a civilized society.

The most stunning fact about them is not only that they are morally repugnant–they are self-defeating. We cannot defeat fascists with fascist tactics. Our message gets lost in the process. Our Republican opponents are the most immoral denizens ever to hold public office. Led by Trump, they wage a daily war against America’s basic democratic, moral, and Christian value. Why in the world would we sacrifice our hold on the moral high ground by becoming more like them?

Our appeal to the American people is diminished every time some presumed liberal/progressive engages in the adolescent bullying that some have recently displayed against Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell, and Sarah Sanders. Let’s keep our image clear: we are the antithesis of the Trumpists, not their copy cats.
