State Department worker quits because of failed resistance to Trump policies

In an op-ed published by the Washington Post, the U.S. Foreign Service's Chuck Park laid out the reasons why he is resigning from the State Department, including what he calls a lack of resistance from within the ranks to President Trump's policies.

Park said liberals and conservatives are wrong to assume there are people in the federal bureaucracy who are working to undermine Trump, so much so that he nicknamed it the "The Complacent State," a play on the term "Deep State."

"Over three tours abroad, I worked to spread what I believed were American values: freedom, fairness and tolerance. But more and more I found myself in a defensive stance, struggling to explain to foreign peoples the blatant contradictions at home," Park wrote.

Not enough resistance I see.

Another pompous ass grandstanding his resignation as if he'd be missed.
Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor
