Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was invited to a meeting at Jefferson Middle School Academy Friday morning by the Washington, D.C. teacher’s union. However, when she arrived for the meeting, a handful of protesters took up positions on a narrow stairway and blocked her path . . .
As DeVos turned away from the blocked stairway, a man holding a Black Lives Matter sign ran after her saying, “Keep giving money to Senators and buying your way to the position, you should be so proud of yourself.” DeVos got back in her car as the same man yelled, “Go back!” and then “Shame! Shame! Shame!” As the car tried to pull away, the man ran in front and prevented it from moving. At this point the video cuts off, but the Washington Post reports that DeVos persisted and eventually made it inside for her 10am meeting.How far do the Freedom-haters think they can push this "resistance" business?
Conservatives are generally a well-behaved lot, but their populist step-siblings have somewhat shorter fuses. These demonstrations of poisonous hate may not always be met with dignified forbearance.
