In another example of the never-ending cycle of word policing from the left, CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin couldn’t take it this week when a guest on her show used the “m-word.”
The “m-word,” which apparently required self-censorship from the CNN anchor, refers to the word “mob.”
It was used by Daily Beast columnist Matt Lewis, accurately describing the left-wing protesters against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation by the United States Senate.
“I believe it’s the overreaction of the left. When you see people like Ted Cruz getting chased out of restaurants by a mob-” Lewis said Tuesday, before he was interrupted.
Lewis was referring to the mob who yelled at Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife until they had to leave the restaurant.

There is literally nothing inaccurate about describing the confrontation by saying an angry mob chased Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant.
However, CNN’s Baldwin didn’t like the use of the “m-word” in this situation.
“Oh, you’re not going to use the ‘mob’ word here,” Baldwin said, in defense of the mob.
“It’s totally a mob,” Lewis instantly replied. “It is without a doubt. There’s no other word for it.”

Since that example didn’t satisfy Baldwin, Lewis brought up another example of a left-wing mob: The group that gathered outside the Supreme Court on Saturday, literally trying to claw open the building’s massive doors.
“What about the people who were at the Supreme Court banging on the wall?” he asked.
At that, for some reason, Baldwin wanted to move the discussion along.
“Let me move past the m-word,” Baldwin stammered.
I don’t blame the CNN anchor for wanting to move past the topic. Democrat leadership is responsible for enabling these disruptive mobs.
For example, Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters infamously called for crowds to form around members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet.
“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,” Waters said.

She also praised mobs who run people out of restaurants and bother their families at home.
“Already you have members of your cabinet who have been booed out of restaurants, who have protesters taking up at their house,” she said.
Face it, Baldwin. These left-wing “activists” are mobs — and they exist because Democrat want them to.
