Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, 76, was stalked, harassed, and threatened by a mob of anti-ICE protesters as he left a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. Among the mob were members of the Democratic Socialists of America, which later bragged about the bullying on Twitter.
The harassment was captured on video by anti-ICE protester Andrew Massie, who posted it to his Facebook account.
In the video, a motley crew of “Walking Dead” rejects stalk and threaten McConnell as he leaves a restaurant and walks to his car with local politician Jonathan Shell.
“We know where you live, Mitch! We know where you live!” one man shouted. Others yelled, “Abolish ICE!” and “Where are the babies, Mitch?”
As McConnell’s car pulled away, one protester boasted, “We did good.” Fortunately, the protest did not escalate into violence this time.
The Louisville chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America justified its stalking of a 76-year-old man on Twitter, saying: “Cowards like Mitch McConnell run from people peacefully assembled to hold him accountable, but those who enable monstrous policies will always find protesters outside their homes, offices, and restaurants.”
Public servants have a responsibility to face their constituents. Cowards like Mitch McConnell run from people peacefully assembled to hold him accountable, but those who enable monstrous policies will always find protestors outside their homes, offices, and restaurants.

The mob is lucky that McConnell’s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, wasn’t around to clap back at them.
As BizPac Review reported, Chao shouted down an angry mob outside her home in Washington, D.C., when a group of leftist protesters bullied and threatened her husband.
Democrats have been ratcheting up the violence and threats ever since Congresswoman Maxine Waters incited liberals to confront and harass Trump aides and supporters whenever they see them in public.
Some conservatives are fighting back. Investigative reporter Laura Loomer filed assault charges against Maxine Waters after the California congressman hit her in the face with a stack of papers.

Many conservatives are now expressing concern that the violence will escalate and something tragic will happen. In June 2017, Republican congressman Steve Scalise was shot at a baseball practice by a liberal Bernie Sanders supporter who wanted to kill Republican lawmakers.
Aiding and abetting this mob violence is the mainstream media, which continue to foment outrage by pushing fake stories blaming President Trump’s administration for enforcing longstanding federal immigration laws.

Where was the liberal outrage when Barack Obama separated children from their illegal-alien parents for eight years? The silence was deafening.
The leftist media continues to foment anti-conservative political violence.
From least severe to most these are only but a few acts committed by unhinged parties suffering Trump derangement syndrome. The leftist media continues its failure to condemn political violence. pic.twitter.com/gIw3cmOTKK
