Dems Ratchet Up the Hate Rhetoric Against Trump

Chasing administration officials out of restaurants and besieging their homes. This is tolerance.

“Tolerant” leftists are at it again. This time, the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, threw out White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family on “moral grounds” and to uphold “certain standards.” In fact, it was solely because Sanders works for President Donald Trump. Sanders recounted, “I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”

The same cannot be said for far too many rabid leftists these days. Remember when these folks were called “liberals”?

The incident comes just days after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was heckled out of a DC restaurant by a Justice Department socialist and her cronies. Speaking of Nielson, protesters besieged her home Friday, chanting “no justice, no sleep,” while using loudspeakers to blare the cries of detained children. And The Daily Wire reports, “Other DHS employees were warned that there have been credible threats made against both them and their children in a system-wide email that also went out this weekend from the department’s deputy secretary, which also included a list of emergency services and security protocols along with information on how to access the department’s security force.”

Meanwhile, antifa celebrated the release of personal information for 1,595 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees.

Last Wednesday, actor Peter Fonda declared that Trump’s 12-year-old son, Barron, should be “thrown into a cage with pedophiles.” So apparently threatening children is now standard leftist operating procedure.

Why? Because Democrats are fomenting the phony outrage for political gain, and because the Leftmedia is working to paint Trump, his administration and even ICE and Border Patrol agents as Nazis — sometimes literally.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) led the charge over the weekend, declaring in yet another impeachment/immigration rally, “God is on our side!” Not only that, but the aforementioned protesters are doing the right thing. Waters shouted, “If you see anybody from [Trump’s] 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!”

If Democrats aren’t careful, their hateful and overheated rhetoric is going to yield more than protests and loudspeakers. Somebody’s going to get killed. A socialist already attempted to murder congressional Republicans last year. Perhaps the Secret Service should pay Waters a visit.

Evidently, Democrats and their allies are convinced that doubling down on Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” remark from 2016 is the way to election victories in 2018 and 2020. We’d suggest that it’s actually the way to make sure Trump wins reelection.

Addendum: Regarding Waters’s rant, “A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall conduct himself at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.” [House Rule 23, clause 1.]
