Last week was a whirlwind of a week, with Leftist and media-driven outcry about the border policy — I'm sure you remember it well. Most of us assumed President Trump's hasty executive order to reverse the policy would put an end to the screeching and tantrums. After all, what would the protestors have to protest if we just gave them what they said they wanted?
Afraid not, folks.
This weekend, protestors swarmed the house of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, shouting "no justice, no sleep." They played audio of sobbing immigrant children on loudspeakers. The protests (there will plenty more to come, say organizers) have been organized by Credo Action, a "social change network" whose "ABOUT" section reads like an essay on Karl Marx from a Freshman taking Intro to Philosophy.
CREDO organizer Heidi Hess released a statement to the press:
There's a child snatcher living in Alexandria, Virginia. Rightfully so, there's a huge amount of attention focused on the border and the detention centers but the people who are making the decisions are here in DC, so it's important to shine a spotlight on them as well.
Nielsen was confronted by protestors from none other than the Democratic Socialists of America last week, while leaving a restaurant. The protesters booed and shouted angrily at her. Here are some of their insults:
"Aren't you a mother, too?"
"How do you sleep at night?"
"Do you hear the babies crying?"
"If kids don't eat in peace, you don't eat in peace."
Following the incident, Claire M. Grady, the acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, sent out an email warning more than 200,000 DHS employees that "In recent days, DHS has determined there may be a heightened threat against DHS employees in response to U.S. Government actions surrounding immigration."
They only get louder and stronger and more aggressive.
The protestors were protesting what, exactly? President Trump's border policy? We've said it before and we'll say it again: President Trump issued an executive order reversing the policy last week.
The irony is so strong in all of this that it's actually a bit nauseating. Above all, it's a great example of the Left's evolving approach to "dialogue," that even when they get what they want, as they have in this case, they continue. In fact, they often get nastier: Threaten, intimidate, bully, harass — until you get what you want. Then threaten, intimidate, bully, and harass — until everybody knows that you got what you wanted. Then threaten, intimidate, bully, harass — until everybody self-flagellates in the most humiliating possible manner. Then, well, you get the point.
This process of theirs goes on forever. They only get louder and stronger and more aggressive.
