Mitch McConnell Hounded Out of Louisville Restaurant by Protesters

quote [ Republicans should probably stop going to restaurants: This past weekend, a crowd of protesters chased Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, out of a restaurant in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. McConnell and two other men were leaving Bristol Bar & Grille in downtown Louisville after lunch when a group of angry constituents began shouting, “Vote you out!” and “Go home!” ]

Had this happened in San Francisco, Seattle, or Portland it would be a standard "ho-hum liberal weenies, blah-blah-blah..." deal by the media, but the fact that it was in his own home town, by his constituents, should tell us that Americans seems to have crossed a marker and are really fed up.

Intimidating politicians in this manner is clearly a tool of the left, as this post makes abundantly clear.

It was not some theoretical fringe “five percent” who championed this tactic by stating publicly, “If you see anybody from the cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, or at a gasoline station you get out and you push back on them!

That public call to thuggery and intimidation came from one of the most senior members of DNC.

I'm not intending to ignore the intent of your comment, but neither am I convinced that it’s really material to the phenomenon we’re discussing.
