Many years ago, Democrats were known for their staunch support of peaceful protests and our First Amendment rights guaranteeing free speech. Today, party activists have become intolerant, hateful and in too many cases violent.
It seems that almost every week a Trump administration official or supporter is being harassed by leftist protesters. It happened to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Senior White House Policy Advisor Stephen Miller and former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. Of course, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not allowed to eat dinner at the Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia because of her support for the President’s policies.
Yesterday, it happened again as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt was harassed at a restaurant while eating lunch. This is the fifth Trump cabinet member or supporter that has been targeted in recent days. Never before have so many cabinet members of a presidential administration been badgered in public by political opponents
Congresman Cedric Richmond, the Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus issued this statement today defending Congresswoman Maxine Waters after her urging the refusing to accomodate members of the Trump administration in public restaurants, gas stations and other similar locations.
The Red Hen got egged today, except it was the wrong bird. The Washington DC Red Hen which has nothing to do with the one in Virginia whose owner disgustingly gave Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the boot, has received threats and eggs thrown at it.
