Left-wing Illinois Congressman Louis Gutierrez is calling for anarchy in response to Trump's election as President. He told the Reader:
"If you believe in anarchy and a clash of American values, you’re going to get a great experiment. Personally, I feel sadness and fear. This is a scary time for our country."
About the election of Donald Trump, Gutierrez told Ben Jorvasky of Reader: "I can't think of anything like it. I remember in 2000, I woke up at 4:30 in the morning and George Bush was the president. I remember feeling a little shell-shocked. But this is very different. This is not Reagan. This is not Bush—father or son. I almost feel sorry about all the terrible things I said about Bush. Man, I was selling wolf tickets when he got elected.
"This is real. This is—you know what I feel? I feel a sense of danger. Existential dread, man. Everybody says, 'Oh, it's all campaign rhetoric.' Yeah? Look at those early appointments. Look at Jeff Sessions. You want to return to a time when women are in the kitchen and gays are in the closet and Muslims are not allowed? Welcome to the Jeff Sessions era. He wasn't qualified to be a federal judge, but he's going to be your attorney general."
