Early this week, The Nation’s Sarah Posner published a leaked copy of a draft executive order “establishing a government-wide initiative to respect religious freedom.” Some liberals are planning an insurrection if it gets enforced.

Linking to an article about the proposed order, Star Trek actor George Takei threatened: “If Trump signs this, prepare for an #AmericanSpring the likes of which the nation has never seen.”

The ACLU was blunt in its response to the news. Linking to a Vice video which speculated over the executive order, the progressive legal group tweeted: “If he does [sign it], we will sue.”
