Dear #DisruptJ20: Thank You.

Dear #DisruptJ20 Protesters,

As I sit here and watch Donald Trump sworn into the presidency with Hillary Clinton watching from a few feet away, I can think of only one thing to say to you: Thank You. You are the reason we are here today. Without your efforts, we would never have come this far.

Over the past year, your members and others like you on your side of the aisle have relentlessly opposed the nomination and the election of Donald Trump – now our 45th President. You have used insults, disruptive protests, and violence to attack anyone that disagrees with your point of view. You have done everything in your power to label your opposition as racist, misogynistic, and intolerant. You have used racial slurs against black Republicans, and have bullied gay Republicans. You have turned crying wolf into a career. You have mocked religious freedom, and trampled on our freedom of association.

Logic and reason are void from your propaganda and your materials. You do not engage or discuss, you attack and belittle. You bully, insult, and assault.

If you hadn’t done any of this, Hillary Clinton would be our President right now. If you hadn’t done everything in your power to isolate and insult every working class voter in the country, they might actually have voted for your candidate.

So, #DisruptJ20, thank you. Your protests today remind me of the valuable service that you have provided our nation.

Please, continue. In fact, let me know where I can donate – I’ll gladly send you some support. Conservatives need you to continue your efforts if we want to accomplish any of our reforms. Obama may be gone, but we need a bogeyman to run against during the midterms, and we are beyond excited at your willingness to step into this role.

Your nation owes you a debt of gratitude.

Please, by all means, continue.
