First things first: let’s check in on The Washington Post’s “conservative blogger” Jennifer Rubin to find out her take on civility and chasing members of the Trump administration out of restaurants and movie theaters:
I’d like to think the members of this administration would become social pariahs of sorts; they are not entitled to go through life insult-free and embarrassment-free after their egregious conduct in public life. https://t.co/5s8JglvL3t

Boy, that’s a shocker. And yes, her Twitter bio still lists her as a “conservative blogger.”
But there’s an even hotter take in Tuesday’s Washington Post, courtesy of Tom Scocca, who apparently has no idea that illegal immigrant children slept under foil blankets in federal captivity during the Obama administration too.

It’s pretty clear where The Washington Post lands on this whole “harassing members of the administration in public” issue.

Scocca seems most upset with the political pundit class that is still hung up on civility during the Trump administration, as if politeness will get The Resistance anywhere. He writes:
Children, some still in diapers, have been seized from their parents by the government and locked in cages, with no clear way to reunite them with their families afterward. That situation might seem more urgent, in itself, than the question of how people chose to react to the government seizing children and locking them in cages. Yet here we are, caught up in this fuss over — manners? Civility?
Yeah, sorry man, but we are still caught up in this fuss over civility. Maybe not for long, though.
Duly noted. Who else can we chase? https://t.co/X40yNfmVw8

Chasing stupid journalists out of restaurants is the right thing.

Maybe we should start doing this with WAPO reporters and op-ed writers…

If this becomes fine to do against one person, it will be fine to do to anyone. You can expect ALL public officials to be constantly harassed from now on, if this stands, no matter what their party or position.
This is not a good box to open. Be wary.

Just remember: who comes around, goes around. Why shouldn't people chase @tomscocca out of restaurants if they dislike his opinions?
At the moment, I can't seem to think of a reason.

It's absolutely shameful that The Washington Post chose to publish that nonsense and pretend like it is a respectable opinion.
This will not end well.

And WaPo and liberals everywhere should thank their lucky stars conservatives have too much respect for personal freedom to go along with this fascist frame of mind. Looks like we're the only thing standing between anarchy and order now.
