Candace Owens is a very pretty, petite, young lady and Charlie Kirk is a tall, handsome young man. Candace is black and Charlie White. Both are professional journalists who write opinion columns for a living. Culturally, they hold the kind of traditionalists views that most Democrats held a decade ago. Economically, they are free-market conservatives.
Candace and Charlie were having breakfast in a Center City Philadelphia restaurant when a group of white young people in their teens and twenties noticed them. The white guys claimed to be part of the “resistance” movement or the so-called ANTIFA organization which claims the right to use violence to muzzle their opponents, to fight what they deem is fascism by using fascist tactics. It is the prison mentality of a rape for a rape.
Democrat congressional candidate Andy Kim was the founder of one of the organizations that make up the “resistance” movement. That’s right, while most level-minded Americans accept the outcome of a democratic election in America, Andy Kim’s first reaction was to make pretend that it was 1940 France instead of 2016 America. He thought it would be cool to pretend that America was Nazi-occupied territory and that he and his pals were the French Resistance.
It was fun a first – like the anti-war rallies of the 1960’s, there is a certain sexuality to all that marching and shouting – but now things have got out of hand. The “resistance” smashed up a United States Marine Corps recruiting office and attacked police because… heck, who needs a reason these days? Because it is there?
Andy Kim could have been affair-minded grown-up, shown a little humility, accepted the outcome of an election, and given the new President a chance. Instead, he decided to form an organization to undermine the elected government of the United States of America. Now he’s trying to tell us how bi-partisan he is and that he wants to work with both Republicans and Democrats. Well, that’s just bullshit and we all know it.
This was Andy Kim’s reaction to a Republican winning…
The Story of RISE Stronger
In the days following the 2016 presidential election, Andy Kim, a former White House Director for Iraq at the National Security Council, gathered several hundred people to a meeting in Washington, D.C. to lay out a vision for a new wave of citizen engagement in this uncertain and tumultuous political landscape in America. That meeting launched RISE Stronger, which has since grown to become a citizen watchdog organization of nearly 30,000 members across the country who are ready to ensure elected officials and government are both responsible and accountable to the people.
…Keeping grassroots activism at the heart of its work, RISE Stronger draws from a vast network of former White House and government officials and other policy experts to inform and augment the work of its members throughout the country. A network of local and state chapters, and an active online hub will serve as an incubator to new ideas and initiatives that propel forward the work of members and increase the engagement of Americans.
“A vast network of… (bureaucrats and Obama White House appointees).” Is this just another name for a shadow government of the far-Left?
Here is a statement put out by Andy Kim before he was a candidate for Congress:

To Members of RISE Stronger,
This has been one of the most volatile two weeks in American politics. We are living in a moment of history, and our ability to stand up together will help shape our nation's trajectory. We have already seen some heroes rise to the challenge - the ACLU/Yale/IRAP team of attorneys who filed the first lawsuit against Trump's Muslim Ban executive order, and the upstanding Judge who placed a stay on the order; Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who stood firmly against enforcing the muslim travel ban, and showed us the importance of checks and balances; and on Wednesday, two Republican Senators confirmed that they would not be voting in favor of Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education, bringing us closer to halting her confirmation.
While the wins seem few and far between, they are critical to keep in mind. Our efforts are working - the calls, the social media, the actions taken by all of you and millions more are being heard. It is an exhausting, uphill battle right now, but we must keep our vision on the present, as well as the future.
Just two weeks ago, RISE Stronger joined the Women's March in what was one of the most inspiring, exciting days of my life. We followed that with a two day, RISE Above conference, co-hosted with Lawyers for Good Government. We had over 800 hundred participants, over 50 high level speakers, and an incredible amount of energy -- amazing results for an organization that didn't exist 12 weeks ago. We now have over 50,000 individuals engaged on our various networks, local chapters in nearly every states, and working groups forming and strategizing on the best ways we can fight back.
Where do we go from here? We continue to build out RISE Stronger as an organization. We are in the process of filing paperwork for RISE to incorporate as a 501c3 and 501c4. Our policy working groups are honing in on confirmation hearings at the cabinet and sub-cabinet level. We are gearing up for the Affordable Care Act fight, a fight I believe we can truly impact.
RISE Stronger is a community, where horizontal, two-way communication is at the heart of the organization. We hope you will join us as we build a strategic and effective form of resistance, that incorporates each and every one of you.
Founder, RISE Stronger
