I am old enough to remember liberals attacking Trump supporters with Make America Great Again hats on right after the election.
I am old enough to remember Antifa protestors attacking police officers just a few weeks ago.
And I am old enough to remember the left declaring that anyone who helps Trump is a white supremacist who can be attacked on moral grounds.
So it is really damn rich to watch reporters and liberal activists complaining about the Secretary of Health and Human Services taking private flights while on the job. The left has not only become increasingly violent, but they have started grounding their violence in the language of moralism.
Tom Price is in charge of the cabinet position that oversees Obamacare. Democrat members of Congress say Tom Price and his Republican colleagues would kill you and your children.
And you want him walking through a public airport? His presence not only puts his own safety at risk, but ensures inconvenience and possible safety issues for others.
The left has created a violent situation presently in the country and now complains when those they would cheer if shot take steps to avoid being shot.
Every single Cabinet secretary should be flying private given Antifa, the so called Resistance, and rise of violent leftwing nutters. Honestly, I assumed they already did and was surprised to learn most didn’t.
But Tom Price in particular, given people like James Hodgkinson and Jimmy Kimmel, should particularly stay out airports. My goodness, I tweeted out that I had no problem with this and was bombarded by angry leftists saying they had a right to let their voices be heard and confront Tom Price. So yes, they are admitting they want to confront him at the airport, which would just inconvenience everyone else. But at least they’d feel good about themselves.
By the way, it is a stupid and ignorant belief to think Tom Price is arranging his own travel, but more than one prominent leftist has largely based their objection on that claim.
