After Antifa Attack on DHS Sec., CNN Analyst Wants Her to Eat With Only Her Race


Liberals and progressive leftists were in a state of constant outrage even before President Donald Trump took office, but every few weeks or so there appears to be another media-driven instance of over-the-top and self-righteous maximum outrage for them to immerse themselves in.

The latest instance of leftist rage is centered on the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” border enforcement policy, which has the inevitable result of temporarily separating children from the parents of illegal immigrants while they are processed and prosecuted prior to deportation.

One of the main targets for the leftist outrage is Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who found herself the subject of an incredibly rude protest while she attempted to enjoy a quiet dinner at a D.C.-area Mexican restaurant on Tuesday evening.

The incident, which was broadcast live on social media and received rave reviews from other leftists, resulted in Nielsen leaving the restaurant after enduring more than 10 minutes of protesters loudly shouting “shame” and “end family separations” at her, according to The Washington Post.

The group responsible for the protest that ruined Nielsen’s dinner — as well as other diners in the restaurant — is the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America, which is reportedly affiliated and allied with a local antifa group dedicated to the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

“How dare you spend your evening here eating dinner as you’re complicit in the separation and deportation of over 10,000 children separated from their parents?” screamed one male protester while Nielsen sat in silence.

“How can you enjoy a Mexican dinner as you’re deporting and imprisoning tens of thousands of people who come here seeking asylum in the United States? We call on you to end family separation and abolish ICE!” the protester added.

As noted, leftists and Trump-haters cheered the display of intolerance by the anti-ICE protesters who descended upon Nielsen in the Mexican restaurant.

The Washington Examiner’s chief political correspondent, Byron York, even noted a rather racist tweet in support of the protesters and against Nielsen that was posted by CNN’s purportedly “Republican” panelist Ana Navarro, who had tweeted, “Are there no Norwegian restaurants in Washington, DC?”

York noted the clear implication from Navarro that Nielsen “should stick to her own ethnicity in choosing restaurants,” as if it is wrong for people to enjoy the cuisine of other ethnicities and cultures … which used to considered be a defining part of the left’s push for “multi-culturalism,” but which is now apparently viewed as “cultural appropriation.”

Has the left's anti-Trump hatred gone too far?
York pointed out an additional display of anti-white racism from the vociferously anti-Trump Navarro in a separate tweet aimed at Nielsen which read, “NO enchiladas for you!”

The liberal left — of which Navarro is a part, despite her claims to be a “Republican” — will incessantly assert that they are against racism in all of its forms, then utter blatantly racist rants like Navarro’s tweets above, which presume that people should only be allowed to eat the food produced by their own ethnic cultures.

Perhaps even worse than Navarro’s racism is her cheering on of the incredibly anti-social tactics utilized by the leftist protesters to disrupt a restaurant and ruin the private dinner of a woman who oversees an agency that is merely enforcing laws that have been on the books for decades.

Furthermore, this incident just goes to show how seriously distressed and fueled by hate our society has become, that the actions of these protesters can not only be deemed acceptable, but also cheered along by members of the supposedly unbiased media.

Now, imagine for a moment that a pro-life group had similarly barged into a restaurant and disturbed the private dinner of Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards — would Navarro and the rest of the left be OK with that and berate Richards with racist remarks in the aftermath … or would they hypocritcally lose their minds and scream to the high heavens that such behavior is out-of-bounds and not allowed at all, in any circumstance?
