During a recent interview, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) was asked if she thought running conservative lawmakers out of restaurants and basically using violence against them over their recent vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) was going too far.
Specifically, while on CNN’s, “State of the Union,” Sen. Hirono was questioned by Dana Bash, who’s one of the news outlet’s journalists and an anchor of the show, about whether or not publically harassing republican legislators in the wake of Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court was inappropriate.
“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,” began Bash.
“It’s another thing to run senators out of restaurants and go to their homes,” she continued before asking, “is that going too far?”
Bash’s question, to be clear, was in reference to the countless leftist activists who have been discriminating against conservatives as well as relentlessly harassing them.
At first, Hirono appeared to dodge the question. “I think it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated about what is going on,” retorted the democratic lawmaker.
“Because what 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,” adder Hirono before being cut off by Bash.
“Should they be going after people at restaurants?” pressed the CNN journalist.
“This is what happens because when you look at white supremacists and all that, this is what’s coming forth in our country,” claimed Hirono, quite shockingly.
“There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country. This is the kind of activism that occurs and people make their own decisions,” she continued, adding, “if they violate the law, then they have to account for that.”
Basically, by saying this, Hirono appeared to be suggesting that it is justified to actively harass conservative lawmakers and other Trump supporters because doing so is simply a reaction to the actions of “white supremacists,” which countless recognize to be utterly absurd.
She basically implied that GOP representatives and senators were also white supremacists. However, people understand that this sort of inflammatory and false rhetoric is nothing new from the left.
For example, earlier this month, the mayor of Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey signed an order placing Michael Cioffi, who is the chief of the local police department, on leave shortly after an audio recording was played during a council meeting in which Chief Cioffi reportedly made utterly hateful comments against Carrol McMorrow (R), who’s the president of the city council.
During one point of his rant, for instance, Chief Cioffi stated, “I’d like to kill her but I can’t.”
At another point in the recording, he said, “she is one hell of a b****, let me tell ya.”
The student’s teacher allegedly attempted to mock his beliefs by calling him ‘Trumpy’ and berating him daily.
A few days before that, Jerry Brown (D), who’s the governor of California, asserted that “something” has to happen to President Donald Trump. If not, he argued, President Trump may undermine the entire world.
Several days prior to that, the editors of The Washington Post, a well-known liberal news outlet, published an op-ed suggesting that President Trump is partly to blame for damage caused by natural disasters.
This is because, according to them, he has so far refused to support any far-left environmental regulations that would significantly harm the economy. In addition to this, he is also somewhat “complicit” because he has expressed some understandable skepticism about certain details relating to climate change.
And before that, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who is known by many as an unhinged critic of republicans, ruthlessly slammed President Trump during an event in California. Much like Hirono, the leftist lawmaker also, quite disturbingly, appeared to celebrate making conservatives feel unsafe.
Prior to that, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), who used to be a federal judge before being impeached for apparently being corrupt and engaging in perjury, joked about how someone saving Trump from drowning would be a “catastrophe.”
Specifically, he criticized leaders who lie and suggested that this is what his successor does while at an event in South Africa. He also appeared to imply that President Trump could, quite ludicrously, undo democracy.
In addition to that, journalist Jennifer Rubin, who’s a well-known opponent of Trump, basically called on others to harass White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for life because the press secretary supposedly lied to the press and incited action against them.
