The reluctance of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WVA) to support the Biden Administration’s $3.5 trillion spending bill has led to sustained attacks on them.
Sen, Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) declared that “two senators have no right to sabotage what we want. We are, in the Russian vernacular, the Bolsheviks—the majority. You know, Lenin had the same sort of problem with the Menshiviks—the minority—when he was establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat back in 1917.”
Thus far, Sinema has faced the worse harassment as a gang of leftists chased her from a class she was teaching at Arizona State University into the women’s restroom where they photographed her entering a stall. Manchin was accosted by kayakers outside the houseboat he lives on in Washington.
President Biden called the harassment “part of the process. It happens to everyone who doesn’t have Secret Service guards accompany them everywhere they go. If you don’t want to be accosted or followed you need to get yourself elected president like I did.”
CNN’s Ana Navarro said that “while I don’t think its appropriate to chase anyone into a bathroom, I kind of think that Senator Sinema has only herself to blame. If she were loyal to the Party this wouldn’t have had to happen to her.”
Sinema called the harassment “an illegitimate protest. I respect the free speech rights of those who disagree with me, but engaging in illegal activities such as gaining entry to closed university buildings, disrupting learning environments, and filming people in a restroom are not part of these rights.”
Sanders wared that “Sen. Sinema’s effort to resist our attempts to bring her back into the fold is ill-advised. She would be better off confessing her crimes and taking whatever punishment the Party doles out to her, like Zinoviev, Kamenev, and many others did back in 1936.”
