The American left really doesn’t like American democracy.

Not two days after midterm elections gave Democrats control of the House of Representatives in the upcoming 116th Congress, while keeping Republicans in charge of the Senate, progressives are planning national rallies Thursday to keep the country roiling.

Now the pretense is fears for the special counsel investigation into the liberal bugaboo of “Russian collusion.”

A group calling itself “Nobody Is Above the Law” is calling for demonstrations in more than 900 cities around the country, in Canada and even in Europe to denounce acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker’s role overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

Whitaker, who is taking over as acting attorney general after President Donald Trump forced the resignation of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday, will be in charge of the probe now.

Sessions had recused himself from any matters related to the Russia investigation, which left Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein with overall responsibility for Mueller’s actions.

Whitaker hasn’t recused himself, but has made it very clear that he thinks the probe is too wide-ranging.

In a commentary originally published by CNN in August 2017, Whitaker went on record criticizing the limitless scope of the Mueller investigation, arguing that Rothstein needed to rein it in or risk having it devolve into “a political fishing expedition.”

“This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family — and by extension, to the country,” Whitaker wrote.

To normal people, that might sound perfectly reasonable. To the left in 2018, even after a win at the ballot box as recently as Tuesday, it’s a reason to take to the streets in fury.

House Minority Leader (and likely Speaker-to-Be) Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday called Sessions firing and Whitaker’s stepping in a “blatant attempt” to undermine the Mueller probe.

Her liberal storm troopers are taking direct action.

“Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it,” the Nobody Is Above the Law website states. “The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation. Our hundreds of response events are being launched to demonstrate the public demand for action to correct this injustice.”

It’s an “injustice” already that Rosenstein is no longer in charge of an investigation he probably should never have been in charge of in the first place?

This is a guy, after all, who reportedly plotted to “wear a wire” for discussions with the president of the United States and talked about using the 25th Amendment to get rid of Trump before his administration even got started.

(Granted, that report was from The New York Times, so it deserves the usual skepticism, but Rosenstein’s denials weren’t entirely convincing.)

All of that is so much white noise to the anti-Trump crowd, though.

In an overwrought Twitter post, uber-anti-Trumper Rachel Maddow of MSNBC called the demonstrations planned for Thursday a “Break Glass in Case of Emergency plan to protect the Mueller investigation.”

But that’s not what it really is. What it is is an attempt by the left to keep its anti-Trump activists at the frenzy they were leading up to the midterm elections.

Winning the House, in the manner prescribed by the Constitution, isn’t good enough for progressives. Trump’s upset victory in 2016 deprived them of the presidential power they thought would be in their hands for all time to come – and they want it back, now.

It remains to be seen whether all the demonstrations that are planned actually come together. But even the prospect of national protests so soon after an election that would at least partially satisfied a responsible political movement tells American conservatives all they need to know about the American left today.

It cares nothing for American democracy.

    Aww the leftist snowflakes just cant act like adults for even one day can they? What I want to know is, when Trump is done with his second term in 2024, what are the dems going to do then? Especially if another Republican wins the election? will they all just commit one huge mass suicide or will they be even worse than they are acting now? what will they use as an excuse the next time? i think they have tried just about everything they had in their bag of Tricks. Russians, rape, race,…. every thing they could use to try and derail POTUS Trump’s every move has been a complete failure. the only people who were able to thwart Trump was his own party when they didn’t vote to repeal Obama care.

    Excuse me dems. Not above the law? Well I say it looks like maybe Trump IS above the law… you all have been looking for ANYTHING illegal to stick to him for two years now and have NOT found one thing! face it, if anyone in America is “Above the law” it is Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America! Either that or the man is one of the very very few wealthy politicians to be totally clean! its got to be either one!

    all this talk about investigations and lies and law breaking just makes me think that there must be a huge amount of this stuff going on in our federal government so I think we need to make a new law that everyone in any elected government office HAS to submit to a full and total criminal investigation and background check! It would weed out all the scum, it would keep these people from doing things they shouldn’t and would save the tax payers a whole bunch of $$$ because all the pay offs, kick backs and favors would all but end! But, would these people vote for a law that could reveal the certain astronomically high level of corruption and crime in our government?? NEVER!! So i think they should all stop it with the accusations and faux outrage about investigation the POTUS and just get back to running the country for the people who elect you to your positions to begin with!

    Maybe these commies will do the honorable thing and commit mass suicide. I will contribute to the flower and teddy bear fund if they promise to do it. There are many fed up Americans, but we vote our choices.

    Will these people ever stop? Why don’t they go get a real job…but then again, Soros probably pays them well! I’m so sick of the divisiveness in this country that they are causing. They need to than the good Lord that they live here and we have a leader who has the guts to follow through with his promises and has certainly improved everyone’s life…even theirs…which they will never acknowledge! So sad!!

    First action Whitaker should take is ban the wearing of masks or anything that make facial identification impossible. Wear a mask at any type of gathering and be arrested immediately
