A group of organizers and activists have banded together to put pressure on Democratic lawmakers who are "failing" them by launching the political action campaign "We Will Replace You," an organization warning Democrats failing to oppose President Donald Trump's agenda will come at a cost.
"We will only defeat Republicans on the local, state, and federal level if we go on the offensive," the group said on its website.
"Democrats must know there is a price for collaborating with Trump. Any Democrats who would give legitimacy or support to Trump do not represent us and must be replaced by people who will stand up for our lives, our values, and our democracy."
Waleed Shahid, a co-founder of the progressive group All of Us and co-founder of We Will Replace You, told the Guardian that Democratic leadership loves "the grassroots activism, but they don't want to take the next step and challenge the Democratic leadership."
Protests have popped up in droves since Trump won the election in early November, and some town hall meetings with lawmakers have turned fiery in weeks past. This weekend, rallies were planned all over the country ahead of President's Day protesting Trump's major orders and cabinet picks.
The group "We Will Replace You" questioned some Democratic senators' decisions to vote to confirm Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State and join in confirming Mike Pompeo as the new CIA director. Resisting Trump, it said, would mean voting "No" on all Trump appointees, publicly supporting impeachment if Trump is found to have broken the law or violated the Constitution, and pushing for Steve Bannon to be fired.
