So this is what it’s come to. If you are dissatisfied with a policy of the Trump administration, you have the right to heckle, harass, ostracize, and even refuse to do business with anyone remotely associated with the White House. First Department of Homeland Secretary Kistjen Nielsen was forced out of a D.C. Mexican restaurant reportedly for showing the insensitivity of enjoying a meal prepared by a member of a culture she is persecuting. A few days later, protesters descended on Nielsen’s home in Alexandria, Va., calling her a “child snatcher,” and chanting “free the kids” and“no justice, no sleep.”

The most recent target is White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who tweeted a short time ago:

Trending: Cartoon of the Day: Looney Toons

Lucky for the restaurant owner that Sanders isn’t gay, black, or a member of some other “protected class.”* If she were, the restaurant will already have been slapped with a lawsuit.

Putting aside entirely the reality that these malcontents are holding Donald Trump accountable for a policy embraced and executed by Barack Obama, where is their sense of boundary? Better yet, where are leaders of the party of civility?

Shouldn’t members of the congressional minority be speaking out against these gratuitous behaviors? It’s a certainty that they would if one of their own were targeted.

* Actually, Sanders is a member of a protected class — women — but she is denied the protections of the Left because she is also conservative.
