We have seen some terribly ugly behavior emanating from the left side of the congressional aisle over the course of these last few months, in particular, aimed at the women of the Trump administration.
It certainly calls into question the democratic party’s purported ideologies of tolerance and equality, perhaps indicating that these “stances” are merely strategic in order to capture the emotionally-centered youth vote. And, even more disturbing is what this behavior says about the left’s record on feminism…especially when you consider their support of Hillary Clinton was largely forced upon them by a DNC who pushed Bernie Sanders out of the race for their once-failed novelty female candidate.
Don’t even get me started on how virtue signaling comes into play here…I’d be typing until the wee hours.
In the most recent instances of harassment of Trump administration officials, just days apart, both Sarah Huckabee Sanders and DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen were kicked out of, or, in Nielsen’s case chased out, of restaurants for being part of America’s conservative political scene.
Much of the nation was horrified by the behavior, and condemned those responsible. Yet, from the left…
Not so much as a single condemnation.
As journalists dig deep into these calls for escalation and, frankly violence, the responses that they are receiving from those on the front lines are terrifying.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deserves a “life sentence” of public harassment for “inciting against the press,” according to a Washington Post columnist.
“Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press — after inciting against the press. These people should be made uncomfortable, and I think that’s a life sentence frankly,” Jennifer Rubin said on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday.
“I don’t think what’s most effective is throwing Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of a restaurant. I wouldn’t serve her either, frankly, but what’s most successful is getting a million people on the street to protest.”
How Jennifer Rubin has come to the conclusion that her knowledge of the inner workings of the White House are somehow more correct than Sarah Sanders are is beyond me. What Rubin implies by calling Sanders a “liar” is that Rubin knows better.
Spoiler alert: She doesn’t. In fact, she couldn’t.
