It was only a couple of posts ago that we referred to that incident where Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were confronted as they left a Georgetown event by a little mini-mob waiting outside to harass them — which Chao wasn’t having, by the way. Their beef: children separated from their families at the border, which didn’t seem to bother them during the last administration.
So as both the press and cable news coordinate their efforts to counter the idea that Democrat protesters have ever formed an angry mob, HuffPost jumped in and decided to highlight the thoughts of a woman whose claim to fame is — confronting McConnell in an airport.
"We will not sit down and shut up. We will keep screaming. We will continue to confront our elected officials wherever we encounter them… We have a brave, bold vision for the world we want to live in and of what justice means to us." https://t.co/17kFUxKl9C

The thing is, her side might have lost the election, but their end goal is implementing their “brave, bold vision” for all of us, so we can all enjoy the benefits of what “justice” means to them. So it’s all good, right?
I am the executive director of Positive Women’s Network – USA (PWN), a national network of women and transgender people living with HIV — but you may know me as one of “those people” who followed McConnell through Washington, D.C.’s National Airport last week, as seen in a tweet that quickly went viral. I, and others like me, confronted McConnell and other politicians in airports and offices and elevators earlier this month because they refuse to meet with the people whom they allegedly represent.
Not “allegedly” represent: they represent the people who elected them to represent them. Remember when Barack Obama said that elections have consequences?
Oh, and Khanna also occupied McConnell’s office and interrupted Sen. Susan Collins’ floor speech from the gallery:
What happened at the airport that afternoon is only one part of the story. Last Friday morning, I was among dozens of sexual assault survivors of color who occupied McConnell’s office during the cloture vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, chanting, “We do not consent! No more rapists in power!”
No more rapists in power? Not even Christine Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh of rape. Neither did any other woman who came forward. So it looks like “justice” for the mob doesn’t include due process.
I see they've stop trying to pretend they are a news source and embraced their mantle as a propaganda rag. Good on them.

Go ahead. With every scream and violent mob demonstration, the GOP angel gets another vote.

"We have a brave, bold vision for the world we want to live in and of what [MOB] justice means to us."
Try actually convincing the electorate and winning elections.

Will you do this with all elected officials or just republicans? I mean in Chicago the Democrats have single handed destroyed everyday life for millions. Will they be yelled at?

This is why Democrat platitudes about "civility" are horse shit…liberals are pushing violent confrontations, and if they are not careful, they're gonna get just that…violence.

This goes both ways.
Can't wait to see what your reaction will be when some burly guy gets in the face of – say – 80 year old Maxine Waters.

Jackasses like Naina Khanna rely on the civility of the people they confront. Eventually, those being yelled at, interrupted, called names, threatened and bullied will grow weary of these tactics, and some serious ass kicking will take place. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Yep. Screaming. That’s about all they got

Keep at it. Just don't be shocked when serious people don't take you seriously.
If you actually want to change something, this isn't the way. If you just want to scream to make yourself feel better, then knock yourself out. But stop lying to yourself.

Best way to create world you want to live in? Stop stomping your feet, and quit your crying, then behave yourself and run for Congress where you can make needed corrections.

I'm not sure what their brave vision of the world they want to live in is, but is they have to scream and tell and harrass people to achieve or, it's probably not a good vision.

America is already a "brave, bold vision", and we will not let you destroy it with leftist Fascism, politics of self-righteous hate, the negation of due process, the treason of open borders, or infantile stupidity of leftist domestic terrorism.
