Spiderman: Return of the Popcorn Movie

#Resist, They Said, And So Resist He Did

 

Go look through leftists’ bios on Twitter. It will be the rare exception where the following hashtags are not included: #Resist, #Resistance, #ResistTrump. The media loves The Resistance. Loves. What is the next step to an active resistance? It’s really not complicated: Armed resistance. The media-Left plasters Coexist bumper stickers on their cars, but as […]
