Thousands of emboldened left-wing activists linked to anti-Trump protests plan to converge on the U.S. Capitol next month.
Democracy Spring, which has been endorsed by groups funded by billionaire George Soros, will ironically protest "billionaires and big money interests" in politics by holding a giant sit-in from April 11 through April 18. The group's website promises "drama in Washington" and "fire that transforms the political climate in America."
Kai Newkirk, campaign director of Democracy Spring, was the man who interrupted Trump at the fifth Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Dec. 15, 2015, Breitbart News reported.
"The American people deserve free and fair elections, not billionaire auctions," Newkirk yelled during the CNN debate.
"We will demand that Congress listen to the people and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do – or until they send thousands of us to jail," the group's website states.
Roughly 2,000 people have pledged to attend the sit-in.
Some of the organizations that have endorsed Democracy Spring and what it bills as "the largest civil disobedience action of the century" include:
- American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO)
- Code Pink
- Democratic Socialists of America
- National Organization for Women (NOW)
- Soros-funded groups: MoveOn.org, the Institute for Policy Studies, and Demos
Democracy Spring says its protests will be non-violent, but support by groups like MoveOn.org is likely to raise red flags with law-enforcement agencies. MoveOn.org took credit for shutting down a Donald Trump rally in Chicago on March 11. Four people were arrested and two Chicago cops suffered injuries trying to restore order.
"@JohnKingCNN on MoveOn's support for student leaders who organized protest of #TrumpRally in #Chicago," the organization tweeted as the network discussed chaos inside and outside the University of Illinois-Chicago Pavilion.
Conservative radio host Michael Savage recently predicted that left-wing groups would be energized by the delicate approach authorities have used with protesters linked to Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, and Soros-funded groups.
"They think that they have the stage. They're wrong," the host said Monday during "Savage Nation," WND reported. "They don't have the power in this country. They're a small group of people. ... They're going to provoke violence on the other side, and that is bad for America. It's very bad for America. That is what the left specializes in, which is violence and anarchy of this nature."
Savage's comments came just 10 days after the hacking group Anonymous announced plans to attack Trump's websites on April 1.
"We need you to shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know," an individual wearing a Guy Fawkes mask said to hackers in a YouTube video posted March 4. "We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand. ... This is a call to arms."
Anonymous first declared a digital war against Trump in December. Its new effort, dubbed OpTrump, will allegedly to part "on a larger scale," the Hill reported Tuesday.
