It’s becoming clear in just a matter of a few days that the marching orders have gone out to harass and harangue Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., into submission for holding out on supporting President Biden’s massive $3.5 trillion Build Back Better spending bill that equates to a social welfare bill that advances the Green New Deal. But then, the mob known as the progressives long ago established that physical intimidation is a go-to tactic.
As for Sinema, radical left-wing protesters are coming out of the woodwork, where even a trip to the ladies’ room is not off-limits. After being accosted by protestors at the University of Arizona, where Sinema is an instructor, who chased her into the bathroom and kept recording while she was in the stall, the moderate Democrat would also be confronted at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., and again on her flight — it’s not clear why flight attendants allowed this.
In a video making the rounds on Monday, Green New Deal Network chief of staff Kunoor Ojha is seen approaching Sinema as she walked through the airport, interrupting her while she was on the phone.
“Hi, Senator Sinema? I want to ask if you can explain to the American people what you’re planning on cutting from Joe Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan?” Ojha asked. “Do you want to cut climate priorities? Is it elder care that you want to cut, or is it child care?”
Sinema held out her hand to maintain distance, as Ojha, who also worked for Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 presidential campaign, was clearly violating her personal space, and said something to the woman, though it was not audible. Others with Ojha began chirping at the senator to do the “right thing” as she continued on her way,

The campaign of harassment didn’t end there, as a second video emerged of a woman named Karina, who identified herself as a DACA recipient, as she confronted Sinema while she sat on her flight about whether she would commit to supporting a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
“I don’t know if you remember me,” the woman said, before broaching the issue. “Can you commit to that, senator?” she then asked, adding, “I don’t want to disturb you, but at the same time, I just want to know if I can get a commitment from you, senator.”
With a U.S. senator aboard, you may think security would be a priority for an airline, but as can be seen at the end of the video a flight attendant appeared to be looking on as Karina accosted Sinema, who was not engaging with the woman.

A frequent question that appeared on social media Monday evening was how does a presumed illegal immigrant get on the flight, as seen here:
Seriously. Can someone explain how an “undocumented” person got on a flight? https://t.co/fTxdOCEtcC

Manchin was also confronted recently by a small navy of unhinged kayakers who paddled up to his houseboat, Almost Heaven, where the Democrat lives while in Washington, D.C.
Not only did Manchin refuse to support the multi-trillion reconciliation package, but he also said his vote would only come if substantial cuts happen to reduce the bill’s price tag to $1.5 trillion.
With a 50-50 split in the Senate, Democrats’ majority comes in the form of the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris as Senate president, meaning Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer can afford no defections. While Manchin and Sinema are feeling the wrath of the progressive left for impeding the progress of the unprecedented spending bill, the moderates were already despised for their refusal to kill the filibuster, which would allow the extreme wing of the party to ram through their destructive agenda with a simple majority vote.
Of course, these activists cross the line because they know they can count on the full support of the liberal media machine.
Case in point, CNN senior political analyst Kirsten Powers excused the dangerous behavior in a tweet supporting one of the protesters who chased Sinema into the bathroom complaining about her deported grandfather dying in Mexico and, as an apparent illegal immigrant, not being able to return to Mexico to attend his funeral.
“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,” Powers tweeted.

Powers wasn’t alone, as CNN’s favorite “Republican,” Ana Navarro did her part to carry their water, getting called out by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who replied: “Ridiculous. [CNN] ‘journalist’ rationalizing & justifying harassing Sinema in the women’s bathroom. Unacceptable, regardless of your politics. And someone needs to tell her the definition of ‘pail.'”
