Capital Police Swarm After Confrontation at GOP Rep.'s Office

Share

“When they go low, we go high,” first lady Michelle Obama once said of the Democratic Party.

Apparently, the high road now involves trying to force their way into a GOP congressman’s office.

Maryland Republican Rep. Andy Harris found himself in a scary situation as he tried to keep a group of protesters out of his office, according to Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery.

“Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) just had his office door pushed through and was assaulted by demonstrators, a (Capital Police) officer tells me,” Bendery posted on Twitter.

A video of the incident was also posted.

The video didn’t show the assault Bendery said occurred, but demonstrators could be seen swarming at the door to Harris’ office and pushing it open.

Bendery offered some more bizarre details on Twitter.

“Another little detail, per Cap Police officer: Harris was trying to hold his office door closed but was not successful. Also, the demonstrators were smoking weed. (?!),” she added.

It’s alarming when a group of people, even some drugged-up protesters, try to force their way into someone’s office. And yet that’s what the left seems to have devolved into during the Trump era.

The protesters were justifiably skewered by the public over this incident.

Look, at the end of the day, regardless of political affiliation, it’s never OK to forcibly trespass or try to assault someone. That literally accomplishes nothing other than giving police officers more paperwork to fill out.

This entire ordeal illustrates just how little the left has in its quest to derail Republicans and President Donald Trump. Slanderous accusations have gone nowhere. Attacks on Trump’s policies have yielded nothing. Impeachment calls have fallen on utterly deaf ears.

Nope, apparently all they have left is to delay, obstruct and attack. I was always told as a child, “Show me a man who has to resort to violence, and I’ll show you a man who’s out of ideas.” That couldn’t be more fitting for those on the far left.

Fortunately, Bendery reported there were no injuries.

Still, this illustrates just how dangerously close Democrats are coming to actively embracing violence to oppose Trump.

“When they go low, we go high”? Perhaps Michelle Obama was using “high” in a colloquial sense. If so, these protesters trying to barge into Harris’ office were living up to Obama’s mandate.
