Silent treatment


From the Register:
Trump protesters turned away at Dana Rohrabacher, Mimi Walters offices: We just want to be heard

excerpt:
Protesters seeking to express opposition to the immigration and travel ban, and other actions taken by President Donald Trump, have received less-than-welcome responses from people at the district offices of U.S. Representatives Dana Rohrabacher and Mimi Walters.
On Tuesday, property managers at Rohrabacher’s Huntington Beach office called police. And later that day protesters outside Walters’ office in Irvine were locked out.

Protesters have appeared at both offices, and at the office for Rep. Darrell Issa, several times in recent days. In at least one visit to Issa's office, a representative met with small groups to discuss the immigration and travel ban.

Silent treatment, eh? What about the riot at UC Berkeley the other night? You know, the one where the gay European, conservative, Milo Yiannopoulos was violently accosted by uncivil, intoleranct students and denied free expression of his opinions?

Seems that this blog and UC president Janet Napolitano sure are giving that the silent treatment.

Very inspiring turn-out at Walters office. She was indeed critical of Turmp's policy - as was Dana Rhorbacher. It's important to remind them of this and pressure them to support our communities on this issue.

You mean Obama's 2011 policy? How is it that you "progressives" think you can fool people into believing this is somehow Trump's policy and that it's a Muslim ban when it's neither?

The Democrat M.O. to deflect any accountability or responsibility in a nutshell:

1. During the campaign and the following 8 years of Obama, blame Bush.

2. If #1 above doesn't work, blame Trump.

Who on earth is this brainless fuckwad writing his Fox recaps? The drivel is so obviously embarrassingly stupid, it has to be the work of an underpaid troll.

Or an enslaved troll. Clearly this person was water boarded.

We're responding to people--these Trumpian trolls--who live in a bubble of fake news. Pity the poor fools, they know not what they say. Flat Earthers.

"Though the protesters think of themselves as idealists, they engaged in political thuggery, pure and simple.” (Rohrabacher)

Nice.
