Senator Mitch McConnell was verbally assaulted while eating at Havana Rumba in Louisville Kentucky. He took the high road, he didn’t respond to the hissy fit that the leftist was having. No, instead he sat quietly through his tirade. McConnell put out an article to discuss the incident and let all the leftists know that he will not be intimidated.
“I’m not sure exactly what in my career suggests I would be easily swayed by such a spectacle. The reality is simple: I will not be intimidated. But this issue is not really about me, or about any individual elected official. It’s about something larger: The mob mentality that is being systematically fed and encouraged by the far left all across our nation.
The threats and intimidation are even being cheered on by prominent, leading Democrats. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said there should be no civility until her party was back in power. Eric Holder, President Obama’s Attorney General, recently told a group that “when they go low, we kick ‘em. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”
He then went on to make an important point about the state of our country, how we all need to step and be more civil to each other.
“It’s time for each of us to decide what kind of country we want. One side can continue to hurl mud, hatred, and toxic behavior until we reach a breaking point. Or, those with strong beliefs on both sides of an issue can speak up in a civil way.”
“I enjoyed my meal in Louisville on Friday night, and I will continue to eat with my friends and family at my favorite Kentucky restaurants,” McConnell wrote. “I appreciate those who spoke up against the shameful behavior. We hope other customers weren’t too inconvenienced by the extremist left-wing tantrums.”
He is right. Our country has become polarized, it’s an ‘us verse them’ and them kind of mindset that is broadcast over the MSM. We need to come together as we are all Americans. We all have the freedom of speech and the right to disagree. Hopefully, these Democrat leaders can start pushing for civility instead of violent protests.
