Senator Hirono Justifies Mobs Harassing Republicans
Remember those "norms" the media claims to be concerned about when it comes to Trump? Democrats get a pass on them.
Hillary Clinton just declared that civility won't return until the Democrats take over. And Senator Mazie Hirono joins Maxine Waters in justifying and encouraging the harassment of Republicans.
BASH: The president, Republicans are saying Democratic protesters are, quote, ‘an angry mob.’ What I want to ask you about, it is one thing to protest the Supreme Court at the Capitol. That’s been done for generations and frankly since the founding of this country.
BASH: It’s another thing to run senators out of restaurants and go to their homes. Is that going too far?
HIRONO: I think it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated about what is going on. Because hat happened with Judge Kavanaugh from the very beginning, this is not a fair process. What the Republicans did was to telegraph after Dr. Ford’s account came forward, what they telegraph was, one, Dr. Ford, we don’t want to hear from you. Two, if we have to hear from you, we will rig the hearing —
BASH: Should they be going after people at restaurants?
HIRONO: This is what happens because when you look at white supremacists and all that, this is what’s coming forth in our country. There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country. This is the kind of activism that occurs and people make their own decisions. If they violate the law, then they have to account for that.
That's effectively a blank check for everything short of blatant violations of the law with a word salad about white supremacy and Ford thrown in there.
Senator Hirono is saying that if lefties are angry, then they have the right to harass elected officials any way they please. Does this right apply to conservatives angry at Hirono, Feinstein and Schumer?
It presumably does not.
The media twitters in outrage at Trump's criticisms of Senator Feinstein, but is perfectly okay with a Dem Senator encouraging the harassment of her colleagues.
