The Left’s Dangerous Assault on a Senator Cannot Be Normalized

This demonstrates just how far gone the Left is.  There are no boundaries of civility, no barriers of propriety, and no excesses that cannot be justified in their warped minds.

Over the weekend, a group of male and female radicals, including at least one illegal alien, at Arizona State University followed U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a restroom demanding that she support the $3.5 Trillion Biden Wreckonciliation bill demonstrates just how far gone the Left is.  There are no boundaries of civility, no barriers of propriety, and no excesses that cannot be justified in their warped minds.

However, this should not be shocking to Trump supporters and cabinet members who have were attacked coming out of rallies, attacked coming out of the White House, attacked at the Trump inauguration, attacked at restaurants, and attacked driving down the streets.

It should not be a surprise to anyone who has been watching the rise of the brownshirt ANTIFA, the military arm of the Democrat Socialist Party, which has incited riots, attempted to burn down federal buildings, and attacked police across America with little legal repercussion.

 

And it should not come as a surprise to Members of Congress as a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to gun down Republican lawmakers practicing for the Congressional Baseball game, have been accosted in the halls of the Senate over the Kavanaugh nomination and have even been assaulted trying to mow their lawn at home by a crazed leftist neighbor.

The assault of Sen. Sinema, has been encouraged by the Rep. Maxine Waters of the Left who famously fomented violence in 2018 saying, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

The abuse of Sen. Sinema in a public restroom was encouraged by her fellow Democrat Senator Cory Booker who urged supporters to “…get up in the face of some Congresspeople.”

Obviously, Rep. Waters, and Senators Booker and Bernie Sanders are not responsible for the actions of their supporters, but perhaps now that their same side of the aisle colleagues are bearing the consequences of their incitement, they will think twice before they speak.  Of course, it would be too much to expect them to go all the way back to 2015 when they falsely accused then-candidate Trump and his supporters of being Nazi’s to understand what they unleashed.

It is inexcusable for a group of so-called protesters to accost any elected official in the way that Sen. Sinema was attacked, no matter which side of the aisle one sits on.  Perhaps this event will wake up the Left up to the poison they have poured into the ears of the unstable Left, justifying, and extolling political violence for five years has inevitable consequences.

Politics is a rough and tumble business. But even though we no longer agree that it stops at the waterfront, perhaps we can agree that it should at least stop at the water closet.
