On Saturday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was followed through a parking lot and threatened by ICE protestors at the Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville, Kentucky.
According to the Washington Post, the protestors were composed of “Democratic Socialists and other angry protesters” questioning McConnell on the separation of children from families and when they will be reunited.
During the entire video, some protestors shout “vote you out” with a mixture of other chants thrown in the mix including “Where are the babies,” “Abolish ICE,” and coarse name calling like calling the Majority Leader “turtle head.”
One protester went so far as to threaten the senator, yelling, “We know where you live!”
While there have been peaceful protests outside of politicians homes, recently leftists have been getting up-close and personal with public officials like we’ve seen with DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.
At the end of the video, protesters chant, “No comfort for fascists. No justice. No peace.”
Well, no justice plus no peace sounds a little fascist. Okay, very fascist, but don’t tell the Democratic Socialist liberals that.
The Democratic Socialists of Louisville denounced the protester who called McConnell “turtle head” and said “we know where you live.”
“This person is not a DSA member, nor do we know who he is or what he meant by that statement,” the DSA statement reads. “We believe it is a reference to peacefully protesting in front of McConnell’s house, which is a regular occurrence in Louisville. However, we cannot speak more to the comment because it did not come from our organization or our members.”
This is the second notable time where the Majority Leader was approached in public for this policy. Last month, when leaving a Georgetown event, his wife and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao defended her husband to a group of angry protesters.
