In the event Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., wasn’t already aware of just how unhinged the left is in pursuit of its destructive agenda, she got a good taste of it over the weekend at the University of Arizona, where Sinema is an instructor.
But then, given that Sinema has become a major obstacle, along with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., for the radical left in forcing their legislative priorities on the American people, the odds are good that she was already aware of this.
While you might think some things are off-limits when it comes to protesting or voicing your dissatisfaction with a politician, like a potty break, Sinema found out the hard way that’s not the case as protesters not only chased her into a restroom while videoing their pursuit but kept recording while the Democratic lawmaker was inside the stall. Beyond the lack of decorum, the uncouth act also appears to be illegal in Arizona.
The footage, originally posted by Lucha Arizona, was shared online by Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Epstein, who said the left-wing protesters following Sinema into the bathroom “to confront her on Build Back Better and immigration.”

Other women were using the facility as the protesters, to include at least one male, confronted the senator, telling her they need President Biden’s Build Back Better plan “right now.” A woman is recorded exiting a stall and walking over to wash her hands as the protesters warned Sinema that they helped get her elected and can help defeat her reelection efforts — she is not up for reelection until 2024.
“We knocked on doors for you to get you elected, that’s how we got you elected and we can get you out of office if you don’t support what you promised us,” a young female protester can be heard saying.
She then seemed to expose herself as an illegal immigrant when she said, “I was brought to the United States when I was three years old, and in 2010 both my grandparents got deported because of SB1070 and I’m here because I definitely believe that we need a pathway to citizenship. My grandfather passed away two weeks ago and I wasn’t able to go to Mexico to visit him because there is no pathway to citizenship and if we have opportunity to pass it right now we need to do it because there’s millions of undocumented people just like me who share the same stories.”
Apparently, she didn’t get the memo that the Senate parliamentarian rejected Democrats’ efforts to include amnesty for illegal immigrants in their $3.5 trillion social welfare reconciliation bill.
The radical left group clearly understood that they were employing a lowball tactic and tried to justify it, saying they would not have to “resort to confronting” Sinema if she was more accessible.
We wouldn’t have to resort to confronting @senatorsinema around Phx if she took meetings with the communities that elected her. She’s been completely inaccessible. We’re sick of the political games, stop playing with our lives.

Then again, given the over-the-top actions seen on the left over the past 4-5 years, following someone into a restroom is rather tame. Actions that Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not only condone but encourage — in 2018 while speaking on immigration, Pelosi said she didn’t understand “why there aren’t uprisings all over the country.”
Not that most left-wing protesters care about breaking the law, knowing that the odds are very high in most Democratic precincts that any charges that may be filed will be dropped, but there is a law in Arizona against recording someone in the restroom, as was shared on social media:

While there were plenty of people condoning the “disgusting” actions of the protesters, there were plenty more, including critics of Sinema, condemning it.
Here’s a sampling of some of those responses from Twitter:
Congratulations, you just did incredible damage to your cause.

This is sick and getting dangerous. You need to stop.

The number of people defending the disgusting behavior of these protesters gives us a pretty good idea of why Democrats managed to lose House seats in 2020 and only tied the Senate.
There is no defending video of a woman trying to use the bathroom.

This is uncomfortable. I don’t think I agree with this.

You don’t stalk someone INTO the restroom to harrass them. This is not how we do it.
I CANNOT STAND Sinema, but this is wrong.

I’m all for constituents asking questions of Kyrsten Sinema, but wait outside the goddamn bathroom next time. This is not ok. https://t.co/YaHike9teI
