The anti-“mob” argument on CNN has reached insane levels as we demonstrated yesterday.
Last night Don Lemon and his liberal panelists continued the anti-mob argument, arguing that the protesters who ran Ted Cruz out of his restaurant were just ‘upset’, that they weren’t a mob.
You really need to watch this whole segment to see the insanity:
The whole segment is ridiculous, but what really got me was near the end when Don Lemon suggested that because the Constitution doesn’t say where you can protest, that you can protest anywhere and anytime you want:
Look at the Constitution of the United States and it gives people the right to protest. It doesn’t say where you can protest and how you can protest. …In the Constitution you can protest whenever and wherever you want. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it at a restaurant. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it on a football field. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it on a cable news show. You can do it wherever you want. To call people mobs because they are exercising their constitutional right is just beyond the pale.
Don Lemon is a moron. You don’t have the right to protest anywhere you want. You don’t have a right to protest on private property. It’s absurd and irresponsible to even suggest that. The Constitution merely protects people’s right to PEACEABLY assemble:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
What we’ve seen from the leftist mob during the Kavanaugh fight is not peaceful at all. They are holding elevators, blocking entrances, running people out of restaurants, getting in their faces, etc. These are thuggery and intimidation tactics, period.
As Nathan Wurtzel put it on Twitter, “The cycle of partisan violence and advocacy of partisan violence needs to end.” And that’s exactly what this was, partisan advocacy of partisan violence.
Remember, as pointed out by Grassley, the media was only interested in the anti-Kavanaugh protesters during the Kavanaugh fight:
Sen. Chuck Grassley calls for collegiality, telling the media, "You folks can have something to do with it."

The bias has never been on display more than it is now. It’s really incredible to see CNN advocate for these intimidation tactics but they are all in, revealing themselves for that they are.
