Harassing Public Officials is Childish [OPINION]
Self-righteous left-wing loons continue to publicly harass those they perceive to be aiding and abetting the Trump Administration.
Just weeks after Trump Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson were chased from restaurants by rabid Trump haters, and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao went nose-to-nose with hecklers outside a fundraiser, the harassment continues.
Renowned defense attorney Alan Dershowtiz says he's been ostracized by the social mucky mucks on the Vineyard for supporting Trump's legal position on several occasions, even though Dershowitz is a Democrat and voted for Hillary Clinton. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was followed to his car by some ling-ding women who chanted “We know where you live" as he left a restaurant over the weekend. And former Trump adviser Steve Bannon was called “trash” by a woman as he shopped in a bookstore on Saturday.
Normal people do not behave this way. Normal people can make it through a day without still seething over an election lost nearly two years ago.
These folks are not normal. We joking refer to them as suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” but there must be something to it.
Without Trump to obsess over, these folks would certainly find something or someone else to occupy their every waking thought. They are the morality police, who make selective decisions about what to be outraged about. They are the anointed ones who sit in judgment of the rest of us.
Normal people have disagreements over policy and politics. The deranged have been chosen from on high to impose their will upon the rest of us, and they will stop at nothing to make sure you understand just how virtuous they are--and how horribly flawed you are.
Should we tell these trolls just how obnoxious they are, or do you think they would even understand?
