In a shift from years of rhetorical posturing, liberal journalists and other Democrats endorsed the harassment of LGBTQ women after Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.), who is proudly bisexual, was followed into a bathroom in Phoenix and accosted by radical activists who violated state law by recording the encounter on video.
"I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody," President Joe Biden said Monday. "It's part of the process." Several hours after Biden's remarks, White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused to comment on whether the administration condemned the taped harassment of a U.S. senator.
The president wasn't the only lib who defended Sinema's harassers, who belong to an activist organization bankrolled by left-wing billionaire George Soros. "Sinema's constituents feel this is the only way to reach her," wrote Democratic strategist Max Burns. "Don't run for office if you're just going to hide."
Kyle Kulinski, cofounder of Justice Democrats, agreed. "If you don't wanna get followed in the bathroom maybe support the bill," he said in reference to the controversial $3.5 trillion spending bill crafted by radical House Democrats.
"Which is worse: your grandparents being deported or being followed into a bathroom (bc you refused to stop and listen) by ppl desperate for your help? This is not a trick question," wrote Kirsten Powers, a senior political analyst for CNN.
A number of Sinema's colleagues—Sens. Ben Ray Luján (D., N.M.), Catherine Cortez Masto (D., Nev.), Alex Padilla (D., Calif.), and Robert Menendez (D., N.J.)—belong to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which has donated money to Living United for Change in Arizona, the activist group whose members harassed the bisexual woman in the bathroom. None of them returned the Washington Free Beacon's requests for comment on the group's questionable tactics.
