A man protesting the resignation of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, made at President Donald Trump’s request, was unable to clearly tell this Big League Politics writer why he was at the protest.
At the #ProtectMueller protest in Wichita, Kansas, one protester struggled to explain why he was protesting. The protest had been arranged months in advance by the powerful Democrat activist group MoveOn, and was part of a nationwide series of protests officially titled the “Nobody Is Above the Law – Mueller Protection Rapid Response.”
The protest was planned to spark nationwide action should President Trump do something MoveOn believes could threaten the integrity of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election.
While live streaming the event to Facebook, I interviewed one man who struggled to explain his presence at the protest.
The protester began, “I’m here because I’m upset with the… problem with the,” and after a long pause continued, “this morning, kicking out Jess Sessions, and putting in his place somebody who isn’t really, that hasn’t been confirmed by the Senate, so isn’t really legitimate to be in that job.”
I then asked the protester whether he liked the job Sessions was doing, to which he promptly responded, “Nah, no. He’s uh, he’s, there’s so many problems with him, but at least he was sort of official.”
After asking what he hoped to achieve through the nationwide protest, the protester responded that he hoped “Trump will realize that, ‘Oh, I touched the hot stove, and I better not do this.'”
When asked if he thought this would aid Mueller in his investigation, he said that Mueller is “doing just fine where he is,” and after another long pause, “he just needs to carry through with his investigation, and some things are, some dominoes are gonna fall because of what he’s done.”
Responding to a final question about last Tuesday’s midterms, he expressed disappointment that Democrats lost ground in the Senate, though seemed optimistic about the two Democrat victories in the state of Kansas.
On a cold, rainy Thursday afternoon, the event attracted about 40 protesters to Old Town Square in Wichita, Kansas. The protesters began with a series of speeches, then marched around the square while chanting various slogans, most frequently “Protect Democracy,” several times before assembling in the center a second time. They remained there as a few journalists snapped photos.
As the crowd began to dwindle, an activist returned to the group, shouting loudly that one of the local television stations had just arrived. At this point the activists gathered in a semi circle and resumed chanting. The protest concluded after about 80 minutes.

Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
