White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders forced to leave a restaurant because she works for President Trump. DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen harassed at a restaurant and harassed at her home by “protesters” because she’s enforcing our immigration laws and, by so doing, protecting our country.
DHS employees warned that there are “credible threats” being made against their children. A washed-up celebrity threatens the 12-year-old son of the President of the United States with kidnapping or worse, while a Canadian follows suit by threatening the President’s 4-year-old granddaughter. ICE employees doxxed by radical activists. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi harassed at a movie theater because she supports President Trump.
None of this behavior is new. It’s a continuation of leftist tactics used in the past, but the incidents are increasing in frequency as the left becomes more unhinged and protesters become more emboldened by the deliberate inaction of civil authorities and the complicity of businesses, social media, mainstream media, and entertainment venues.
In May a young black man was harassed and threatened with violence at a restaurant for daring to wear a MAGA hat. Similarly, Tomi Lahren, a conservative FOX News contributor, was verbally attacked in a restaurant, where a glass of liquid was thrown at her. Vice President Pence was booed by leftists at a Broadway show (and the entire audience was subjected to a virtue-signaling lecture by a cast member); an outdoor theater production was disrupted by leftist protesters “triggered” because a white actress was cast in an Asian role; people trying to enjoy a Sunday brunch were disrupted and harassed by a flash mob of progressives seeking to deliberately make the diners “uncomfortable”; and a symphony orchestra performance was stopped in its tracks by Black Lives Matter activists who held the “polite” audience captive, forcing them to listen to the protesters’ singing and chanting until they finally decided to leave, the complicit establishment having done nothing to disrupt the disrupters. (Audience members who did object were subsequently rudely doxxed and harassed on social media.)
Today, the tactic is taken to a new level–a Democrat member of Congress incites the harassment and public stalking of members of the Trump administration:
Congresswoman Maxine Waters claimed that God was on the side of people who drove Trump officials out of restaurants during a speech at a “Keep Families Together” rally on Saturday. …
“We’re gonna win this battle,” Waters said. …
She said, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome any more, anywhere!”
So if you don’t agree with Maxine Waters, apparently you’re her enemy, despite being her fellow countrymen. On behalf of non-citizens, she’s going to make war against you, and she promises to win the battle, because God is on her side.
In Nazi Germany, Jews were forced to wear badges so that they could more easily be identified for persecution. Not to mention genocide.
Is it only a matter of time (or an election) until all conservatives are similarly forced to wear badges so that intolerant progressives know whom to stalk, harass, and drive from the public sphere as, like the Faith Militant, they shout “shame?”
Might this not lead to something even worse?
Is this not domestic terrorism?
This will not end well unless the Democrats come to their collective senses.
Is there any hope of that?
