Kurtz: Why is personal harassment of pole is just wrong

‘MediaBuzz’ host Howard Kurtz weighs in on the direction and the harassment of trump-helper, simply because they are people like Maxine Waters are part of the trump administration, and why, pours oil on the fire of bad behavior.

We are buried under a flood of toxicity.

To many people, justifies bad behavior by decrying the actions of the trump-government—and many of them are crying foul would be, if the people on your side, you will get the same abuse.

How I learned Virginia beat added to serve the restaurant’s refusal, Sarah Sanders over the weekend, there is a lot of anger and even hatred, and in the age of social media, it immediately bubbles to the surface. Restraint seems to be melted to dominate since President Trump policy in the family, separations at the border, he has, since then, Vice versa, the reporting.

Pour oil into the fire is Maxine Waters to go to the left wing of the Democratic members of Congress, the called, essentially, for liberals, after Trump, members of the Cabinet, as you go about your life. This seems to me to be beyond irresponsible, and she was still in a language not even the use of an image.

“You are not going to be able to in a restaurant, you are not going to be able to stop at a gas station, you will not be able to shop in a Department store,” said Waters. “People are going to turn on you, you are going to protest, they are going to harass absolutely.”

That’s right—a member of Congress actually called for the administration, the officials harassed. It is not hard to imagine, someone beaten up, or worse, in the process. How is this not a step in the direction of mob rule?

However, it is not hard to imagine, body of water, and their allies spits outrage when Eric Holder, or Valerie Jarrett or David Axelrod had service refused or personally harassed by Obama-haters.

If the owner of the Red hen in Lexington, Va. Sanders asked, and to leave their friends, simply because she works for the White house, CNN’s contribution Ana Navarro said: “you make choices in life. And there are seeds costs the accomplice of this cruel, deceitful administration.”

And MSNBC post, and Washington Post wrote columnist Jennifer Rubin, that it “is both natural is also suitable for decent human beings to shame and shun the practitioner” trump the immigration policy.

Trump jumped into the fray yesterday tweeted: “The Red Hen Restaurant should serve needs to be more on the cleaning of your dirty canopies, doors and Windows (in urgent need of a coat of paint) rather than refusal, a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule that if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

The President is also riled the things of immigration, to unite as a media shift their focus to the efforts, with more than 2,000 immigrant children scattered across the country with their parents.

“We can’t tweet that allow to attack all of these people, our country,” Trump. “If someone comes, we need to process immediately, without a judge or court, bring them back from where they came.”

In other words, the President proposes, and throw the key due process protection, which would run up against a series of Supreme court decisions. But I doubt that he really believes that he can reach. After the defensive over family separations, I think he’s trying not to overreact to the liberals and paint them as soft on illegal immigration, for the mid-term elections.

Nevertheless, it is one thing to battle over the policy and the reports of the children, kept in cages made, this is perhaps the most emotional battle between Trump and his critics in the political and media worlds. It’s another to employ, the Red hen teaching and discriminate against officials in their personal lives.

By the way, DC, Seattle, and the young to deny virgin Islands laws against the performance to people because of their political affiliation or ideology. And while the Supreme court this month, a Baker, is called ruled in favor of religious beliefs, the declining food offer for a gay wedding, the decision was on the narrow land, like a Colorado civil rights panel, the statement to be treated.

The Sanders incident is hardly unique. Screaming protesters gathered in the townhouse of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen, and also forced to an early departure from a Mexican restaurant. White House aide Stephen Miller was confronted and called a “fascist” in a different restaurant. Local demonstrators screamed, Florida attorney General Pam Bondi in a movie-screening—ironically, a Mr. Rogers documentary and you will be escorted.

It is always out of control.

Here, in a nutshell, is the debate between right and left.

David Harasanyi in The Federalist:

“You’re not a budding MLK. No matter what you think, the trombone, and you’re still an intolerable–h-le. You are a member are a tribalist, blindered mob, imbued with a false sense of security that allows you [to justify] rudeness. That is to say, you’re like a Twitter troll really made of.”

Josh Marshall, founder of Talking Points Memo says, we can’t agree “, when it comes to protests, mark my words, civil disobedience, boycott, and public ostracism.” But, he says, “are completely legitimate tools of political action, the civic action. Many of the calls for civility are calls for a unilateral disarmament of which protest against injustices and abuse of power.”

There is nothing wrong with gold old-fashioned American protest. But what’s happening now, is to quickly conduct a slippery slope in the direction of harassment, denial of push-down services, and offensive. It is very revealing that this explodes, while Donald Trump’s presidency, when some in the media and politics is based, that it was okay, the use of the different standards against him.
