Or as Michelle Obama likes to say, “When they go low, we go high.” So high.
Protesters who held a demonstration outside the home of Minneapolis police union chief Bob Kroll and his wife, WCCO reporter Liz Collin, have been condemned by some Twin Cities media members and state lawmakers after video showed them destroying a piñata of Collin’s likeness.
And of course they’re harassing her at her workplace.
Outside the boarded up windows and doors at WCCO-TV in downtown Minneapolis on Wednesday was a group of protesters demanding anchor Liz Collin resign.
As a result of the ongoing calls for Kroll’s resignation, Collin’s social media pages have been inundated with comments – some abusive – about her husband and his role in city police.
WCCO-TV has taken measures to address the situation both during newscasts and online, with a statement saying: “WCCO-TV anchor/reporter Liz Collin is married to Bob Kroll. To avoid any potential conflict of interest, Liz has not reported on Minneapolis Police and Minneapolis Police Union issues for at least two-and-a-half years.”
Imagine if conservatives were harassing a public official’s wife. We’d be up to our ears in sanctimonious lectures about sexism and threats to the First Amendment.
But this is just the new Democrat normal.
