‘Decent people don’t get harassed,’ says tweeter calling for everyone to harass Mitch McConnell out of public life

We have to, just this one time, give CNBC’s John Harwood some credit for not being transparently partisan; he actually called for the end of the harassment of elected officials in public after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was confronted in a restaurant.

people need to stop doing this crap. personally harassing elected officials is wrong. not how politics should be conducted. if you want change, work/vote for change https://t.co/2plkKpfdJY

it’s also dangerous

When their policies are literally kidnapping & caging children, needlessly causing sick people to die, and stealing the money we have saved for retirement and giving it to corporations, we can’t just remain quiet. THEY WORK FOR US.

Kim, whose blue checkmark leads us to believe she’s employed by SB Nation, is all for harassing McConnell until he’s afraid to show his face in public.

I don’t like Mitch either, but you are a childish and horrible person for advocating the harassment of a public figure. No decent person will ever want to run for office if they know people will behave like you for simply disagreeing on public policy

Mitch McConnell isn't a decent person. The decent people don't get harassed. https://t.co/Iyk8S0Ek6J

Well, that’s reassuring.

"The decent people don't get harassed."

A more perfect statement of victim-blaming could hardly be articulated. Congratulations.

Why do you get to decide who is a decent person? https://t.co/aCq7XMycXx

Hey everybody! The LGBTQFC chick doesn’t catch the irony of her speech, here. https://t.co/RDZbGx5jHN

Harassing an elderly polio survivor and his Asian wife is totally brave you guys https://t.co/pKsncmb3Vo

McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao have already been accosted by a mini-mob upon leaving an event in Georgetown, and McConnell was harassed in an airport, so this isn’t new territory.

Decent people don't harass other people.

No, decent people don't go around harassing others.

Thugs harass people they don't know. Brownshirts harass people who disagree with their politics.

BTW, what size jackboot do you wear?

Yeah that's pretty awful of ya there.

Pretty awful.

Actually decent people don't harass others simply because they disagree with their politics. Decent people find a way to convince others they have a better message. This kind of activity shows that these people have nothing to offer in the way of a good message, so they act out.

I certainly hope somebody who also is intolerant and believes you are not decent accosts you while you are trying to refill your Fanta at the Bojangles

You're not a decent person, therefore you can be harrassed.

— Captain Cargo Pumpkin (@RedneckEducated) October 20, 2018

Actually, the decent people don't DO the harassing. If we need to break it down that far. The left isn't being harassed because the other side are decent people. The right is being targeted by the indecent.

So, really they are only protected by the decency of conservatives
