So you believe it is ok to accost someone in public who you disagree politically with?  Even in front of their family?  How would you like to be out with friends and family and have someone create a disturbance everywhere you go, just because of whom your employer is?

 

And you wonder why there is animosity towards liberals who have no regard for other's civil rights.  Yes, there is much posted here about an individual's civil rights, yet liberals have no regard for public official's personal civil rights.  Hypocritical.

If some Kluxer uses the dreaded "N" word, everyone goes nuts and the lefties on these boards try to associate his act with every Republican, Fox news, and Limbaugh.

 

Any thoughts on the "no law broken theory".

Former president George W. Bush coined the phrase "casual cruelties" to describe Trump's approach to others.  Trump continues to denigrate his staff, Congress, and American citizens through his Tweets and at his rallies. Some of the more famous episodes are his referring to Jeff Sessions as "Elmer Fudd" and mocking the shaking of a reporter with MS. All this was done with the support of his staff. 

 

Now, the world should leave leave them alone in restaurants?  Hardly.

Stephen Miller Trashed Pricey Sushi After Bartender Gave Him the Finger
July 9, 2018


White House senior adviser Stephen Miller was so outraged when a bartender gave him both middle fingers that he dumped $80 worth of sushi in the trash, according to a report published Monday.
Miller, 32, was picking up a takeout order from a restaurant near his City Center apartment in Washington, DC, when the barman followed him out into the street and shouted, “Stephen!” before making the rude gesture and cursing him out.
The incident made Miller feel a little raw — so he immediately threw out his pricey meal, he later told co-workers, according to the Washington Post report.


Miller, who is the architect of President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy, also appeared on “wanted” posters someone placed on lampposts surrounding his apartment building.


In June, he was called a “fascist” by a patron at a Mexican restaurant.

I think many Americans are just tired of all the crap and lies that are spued from so many in Washington, esp. The Donald so they feel that is their way of getting back.
Some may not deserve it like the lady on the plane, but officials are fair game I guess because they support The Donald. Many feel they support his lies, and what they feel is the damage he is causing our Country.

Those in the Government need to have a thick skin and should know that when in the Government, they are always going to have someone on the opposite side who dislike them enough to scream and yell. This yr it has been a lot more, with " The Donald being the leader of the pack!! "

He screams and shouts nasty names and insults all the time, so he and his get it back.

Then it's a bad thing. !! The Bully in the playground just can't always win, but he keeps trying.
Live For Today, No One is Guaranteed a TOMORROW !

Who mentioned about laws being broken?  And what about the right of these public officials to enjoy being out with their families?  Has it become that a person's private life is not sacred?  Of course liberals have to resort to mayhem, violence when they don't get their way.  They're more like spoiled kids who resort to throwing a hissy fit when they don't get their way.

 

And you accuse the Republicans? 

 

Conservatives are compared to Nazis, Hitler and their followers...but these actions is comparible to the riots of the 1920s and 1930s.

Do we want "Angry Americans" running the country?

 

I don't...

No matter what we think of government officials in their public capacity I believe it's going too far to harass them in their private lives.  Reminiscent of our being harassed at the port when when we returned from Vietnam ...we just wanted to go home.

  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders was ousted from a restaurant in Virginia.
  • Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was jeered as she dined at Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C.
  • A woman confronted EPA head Scott Pruitt in a restaurant in D.C. while she was holding her baby.
    "We deserve to have somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, someone who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all us, including our children," she said. "I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out." Pruitt didn't respond, and promptly got up and left with his security guards.
  • Protesters were video-recorded confronting Mitch McConnell as he left a restaurant.
    One of the protesters in the video can be heard saying “We know where you live,” which was called a “not-so-subtle threat right out of the Maxine Waters playbook.”
    Rep. Maxine Waters has never called for violence, but has urged the public to peacefully and publicly confront members of the Trump administration. Since encouraging protests, she has received several threats and been forced to cancel appearances.
  • A woman saw Steve Bannon in a Virginia book store. She took the opportunity to call him a “piece of trash.”
    Nick Cooke, the owner of the book store, called the police.
    In a tweet following the incident, Philippe Reines, a former top aide to Hillary Clinton, shared the contact information of the Virginia bookstore. She posted the address, phone number and email of the bookstore, which is available on the store’s website, appearing to urge his followers to contact the business to defend the woman.
  • A woman harassing a Trump supporter on a plane (video)...
