Referencing an incident in which he was followed to a bathroom by anti-Kavanaugh protesters, Senator David Perdue of Georgia urged his Republican colleagues to “grow up” and start confronting liberal activists.

This, as opposed to spineless GOP members who waffle on their convictions when confronted by screeching paid activists in an elevator.

A group of Kavanaugh haters opposing his eventual confirmation to the Supreme Court recently followed Perdue and his wife through Reagan National Airport, shouting repeatedly even when the congressman hit the men’s room.

“There are millions of women who have come out about their sexual assault and you don’t feel you have to ask any questions?” they shouted.

Others remarked that Perdue has “to exit at some point” and talk to them. ‘Cause, hey, they’re super creepy.

Perdue responded to the harassment from the Senate floor earlier this week.

“After a personal incident that involved my wife and myself this week, we have seen firsthand the length to which members of the other side of this aisle will go to distract us away from the truth,” he explained.

“I believe my Democratic colleagues have gone one tick too far this time. When paid activists who support you attack my wife, you have gone too far.”

Perdue called out Democrat colleagues who have specifically called for violence against their Republican counterparts:  Cory Booker and Maxine Waters.

Booker, or Spartacus, as he is known in his own mind, urged supporters to “get up in the face” of some members of Congress.

Waters called on Americans to take to the streets screaming, calling for Trump’s head.  She was an initial instigator of this behavior, telling supporters to harass administration officials in public every chance they get.

Perdue slammed the organized activists being sent to carry Waters’ and Booker’s extreme rhetoric.

“This is a George Soros conspiracy, and it’s time we wake up, expose them, stand up, and fight for our country because that’s what’s at stake here,” he said. “It’s time for Republicans to stop being the minority party, grow up and stop playing defense.”

Some seem to be heeding Perdue’s call to action.

Lindsey Graham, the senator from South Carolina, has been in Beast Mode for two weeks now, almost single-handedly saving the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Meanwhile, Sen. Rand Paul’s wife wrote an op-ed demanding that Booker retract his incendiary comments.

“I would call on you to retract your statement,” Kelley Paul wrote Wednesday. “I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personal addresses … and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also took these violent liberal protesters to task.

“I want to make it clear to these people who are chasing my members around the hall here, or harassing them at the airports, or going to their homes,” he announced: “We will not be intimidated.”

It’s about time Republicans started fighting back.
