It’s déjà vu all over again.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.) could not walk in peace to his own car over the weekend in Louisville, Kentucky, after a group of angry protesters saw him coming out of a restaurant and taunted and hounded him as he made his way to the car with several other people.
Following him into the parking lot, protesters — including Democratic socialists — chanted, “Where are the babies?” and “Vote you out!”
This latest harassment of the senior senator from Kentucky is clearly connected to the increasingly heated rhetoric from those on the Left against tough border policies designed to protect America — policies that aim to deal with illegal immigrants who are crossing our border unlawfully, often bringing children with them. It follows on the heels of the harassment of other members of the Trump administration in recent weeks, including Sarah Sanders, Kirstjen Nielsen, Elaine Chao — who pushed back on the protesters when they confronted her and her husband after an event at Georgetown University recently — and others.
See the video, below, of the taunting (warning: strong language):
Rep. Maxine Waters (D.-Calif.) is still taking heat for suggesting to her supporters and others a few weeks ago that people should go after members of the Trump administration and Cabinet in public: “If you see anybody from that [Trump] 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.”
In this latest incident on Saturday, one protester even said to McConnell, “Yeah, we know where you live, b****.”
Among the other comments thrown McConnell’s way as he walked — dressed casually for the weekend in jeans and a button-down shirt and minding his own business — were these:
- “No comfort for fascists.”
- “What are you doing to get the babies back?”
- “Abolish ICE.”
- “No justice, no peace!”
After the chanting protesters followed him to his car, one man in the group can be heard saying in the background, “We did good, fellow citizens” — while others laugh.
When the car pulled out of the parking lot, the protesters began to chant again.
Sadly — these people are proud of their actions.
