One of the left’s primary strategies for combatting conservatives is to avoid all intelligent discussion on the issues, opting for targeted harassment to try shaming people into falling in line with the progressive agenda instead of debating topics to find the best solutions for the problems Americans face.
We’ve seen this play out over the last several weeks as both Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen both were denied services and harassed at local restaurants until they left.
Rep. Maxine Waters then issued a call for folks around the country to continue to treat the individuals working in the Trump administration the same way, harassing them whenever the opportunity arises.
This hasn’t sat well with a lot of folks, including many of her fellow Democrats who have called her out for such a horrific suggestion.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
Well, a reporter asked Waters how she felt about the criticism she was receiving from her own party over the comments and she completely lost it.
Over the weekend, Waters celebrated the news of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders being booted out of a restaurant because she’s a member of the Trump administration by calling for more of that kind of personal targeting of administration members. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters said at a toy drive event. “And if you see anybody from that 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. Mr. President, we will see you ever day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!”
After public rebukes from her fellow Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Chuck Schumer, Waters held a press conference Monday at which she defended her comments. When she opened the floor to questions, the first one prompted a defensive response from the congresswoman. Asked what she has to say about the criticism from her fellow Democrats, a clearly incensed Waters tried to blame the backlash on Trump.
“They have not been,” she insisted (video below). “They have talked about civility from everybody. Don’t put this on Nancy Pelosi, don’t put this on anybody — put this on Trump! Trump is the one who is creating lies, trying to have people believe that I talked about harming people. There’s nowhere in my statement, anytime, anyplace that we talked about harm.”
Waters later attempted to clarify that when she made her call for targeted harassment she meant “peaceful protest,” but it seems pretty obvious that’s not the case, especially when you examine her history of wanting to take aggressive action to remove the president from office.
It’s crazy how much political discourse has deteriorated over the last couple of decades, growing ever more hostile until the point folks are willing to do bodily harm to each other because they have different worldviews. That’s just plain outright insane.
Here’s to hoping people learn to find common ground with each other once again and begin to find ways to communicate that uphold kindness.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony
The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.
The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns
Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.
New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
