The left has become extremely hostile to the right, particularly those in the Trump administration.
Rather than voicing their frustration through usual political means — voting or peaceful protest — leftists have taken their outrage to the private sphere, insisting that the crime of serving in the Trump administration deserves unending harassment even during private, non-work hours.
Last month, California Rep. Maxine Waters told her supporters to physically confront and harass Trump officials whenever possible so that it’s made clear to them that they’re not welcome, “anymore, anywhere.”
It seems many leftists have taken her instructions to heart, especially in our nation’s capital.
In a recent incident in downtown Washington, D.C., senior White House adviser Stephen Miller went to a local restaurant and ordered takeout sushi, The Washington Post reported.
After Miller had left the establishment with his food, a bartender from the same restaurant followed him outside.
“Stephen!” he yelled.
Miller turned around, only to see the bartender with both middle fingers in the air, cursing at him.
Thankfully, Miller took the high road and didn’t throw the $80 worth of sushi in the bartender’s face. He did, however, toss it in the trash.
According to The Washington Post, “Miller threw the sushi away, afraid that someone in the restaurant had spit in or otherwise tampered with his food, he later told colleagues.”
Only a few months ago, Miller also found his face printed on “Wanted” posters placed in the area near his City Center apartment, the Washington Examiner reported.
Miller isn’t the only Trump official who has faced this kind of treatment by sneering leftists.
According to the Post, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway was in a downtown grocery store, when a man walking by with his shopping cart yelled, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Go look in the mirror!”
And of course, Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant while peacefully eating with her family.
Every day it becomes clearer that the party that has always claimed to be tolerant is embodying the definition of intolerance — and it’s not going to end well.
