Prepare for a major uprising.
Early this week, The Nation’s Sarah Posner published a leaked copy of a draft executive order “establishing a government-wide initiative to respect religious freedom.” Some liberals are planning an insurrection if it gets enforced.
“If Trump signs a ‘religious freedom’ executive order, this country will EXPLODE,” Huff Post Queer Executive Editor Noah Michelson tweeted. “That’s not a threat, it’s a PROMISE. Get yourselves ready.”
Linking to an article about the proposed order, Star Trek actor George Takei threatened: “If Trump signs this, prepare for an #AmericanSpring the likes of which the nation has never seen.”
Later, he criticized the Trump administration’s “threats” to the LGBT community. “You want to see us #OccupyDC? Because we WILL,” he darkly hinted.
After all, as Washington Post opinion writer Catherine Rampell posited, Christians would bring a form of “sharia law” to America through such an order.
