Creepy Porn Lawyer Invites 'Mad as Hell' Democrats to Join 'Fight Club'

On Thursday, embattled porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, notorious for representing Stephanie Clifford ("Stormy Daniels") and Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, released a political ad for his political action committee, "The Fight PAC." Despite America's increasing incivility, Avenatti ramped up the anger and concluded his ad by declaring, "Join the fight club."

"We the people are mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore," actors and actresses declare as the ad begins. "Enough with the lies. Enough with the cover-ups. Enough with the bigotry. Enough with the misogyny. Enough! Enough! Enough!"

One man in the video yells, "No more thoughts and prayers!"

"If you've put big money first and us second, your time is done," one woman declares. "Done," another adds. "Done," chimes in a third.

In angry tones, the actors declare, "We want a country that stands for inclusion and fights for fairness."

"We will not be silenced. We will speak truth to power. And we will fight. If we do it together, we will win," they declare. "Join us. Join us. Join us."

Then Avenatti comes in. "Our Constitution says 'We the people,' not 'Me the president.' Stand up. Join the fight club," the lawyer declares. "Use your vote as your voice on November 6."

This angry rhetoric is arguably irresponsible given recent events.

Shane Mekeland, a Republican candidate for Minnesota's state House, blamed Democrats for inspiring the incivility that led a man to punch him out of nowhere, leaving him with a concussion and the inability to campaign outside without getting a headache.

"They're constantly driving this narrative of 'It's okay to be violent,'" Mekeland said. How do they drive this narrative? Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on activists to harass members of the Trump administration in public places like gas stations and restaurants. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) encouraged activists to "get up in the face" of Republican candidates and office-holders. Hillary Clinton said Democrats "cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for." Eric Holder declared, "When they go low, we kick them."

Cesar Sayoc, the alleged "MAGA bomber," referenced Holder's remark shortly before his attempted bombings, suggesting that this liberal anger helped stoke a violent response.

This porn lawyer is only playing into Trump's message of "jobs, not mobs," referencing the angry crowds that took over the Hart Senate Office Building during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation battle. A full 567 people in this angry mob were arrested in the final three days.

Avenatti's entrance into the political arena seems odd, especially considering his background and the recent investigation into potential criminal activity.
