The Autumn Witch of November is getting close and nervous Democrats are getting antsier by the hour.

Now we have the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Wife getting harassed in a restaurant.

Been happening for a while now and mostly against Republicans.

One of these days somebody's gonna get hurt (oh wait that's already happened)

What are Democrats so afraid of ?

Must be the low unemployment rates across all demographics.

Or maybe it's the lower taxes ?

Could be they are afraid of losing the illegal immigrant onslaught ?

Vote your brains out Nov 6th 😎

Trump might be right, Democrats are cuckoo 😃



WATCH: Mitch McConnell Confronted By Protesters At Restaurant

Yet another Republican has been harassed while dining out, this time Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were finishing up their meal at Havana Rumba in Louisville, KY, when four men began yelling at them, according to video obtained by TMZ. In the short clip, the leader of the protesters asks McConnell: “Why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave the entire country?”

Someone else can be heard yelling “Ditch Mitch!”

What are they afraid of?

From what I read in the NYT, they fear the election will reflect a triumph of Trumpism, which will result in the death of a lot of their favorite programs like ACA; they fear a packed Supreme Court that will over turn Roe v. Wade, (which I seriously doubt).

However, IMHO, its less fear than it is loathing and hate. If the can't at least take back the House, it sets their timeline for change way back. What change? They demand to eviscerate or eliminate the Electoral College; the demand to eradicate political gerrymandering so they can disenfranchise white rural and suburban voters and now they apparently demand UBI, and of course, Open Borders.

They will, of course, eventually succeed in one way or the other on all their demands. But probably not before the next Great Depression which may well serve to accelerate their platform for ruining the US.

What the purple #### are republicans (or anyone else right of Marx) doing eating in public???

Don't they know they're not allowed to now!

They can only eat at designated food places determined by the authoritarian left. The leftists have done us a favor by marking these places with small yellow stars so people know where to keep themselves.

Jezus!

What an idiot!

Nuts. Pelosi just got a taste of the same. I think this is going to be the norm from now on.

What I saw in that video was a man and woman eating in a rather cheap looking kind of fast food restaurant. The man looked like Mitch and we did not see the woman's face to confirm who she looked like.

From that, I wonder what the hell was the Senate Majority leader and his wife doing eating in a cheap place like that.
I also wonder, as Senate Majority leader, does he not have any security for himself while in public? Where were the body guards?

So there the two are sitting in an uncomfortable booth and the Mitch is sitting with his back to the door. Come on now, even I do not sit with my back to any public door while eating and I have never had threats made to my life as has McConnell.

As for the ''protesters'', well, they did not look like protesters to me. They looked like a bunch of restaurant diners who were there for a gathering. They were not protesters. Did anyone see any protest signs? I didn't.

The article says that four men were yelling at the couple. I saw only one, and one woman from the other side of the table calling them out. Only one man was up close to the couple. What I also saw was at least one of the other patrons at that table was trying to quell the situation, urging the one and only one man who was near the couples table to back down, to take it easy.

Finally there were two guys come from off camera who spoke to the yelling guy, diffusing the situation. They may have been the missing security or they may have just been restaurant employees, there is no way to tell other than speculation.

So, from the video, this was not a group of protesters, nor a gang of four men harassing McConnell.

Likely it was that one of a few diners noticed McConnell and began to express their frustration with government.
A citizen addressing grievances with the current government in public. Basically it was one guy who was not within the limits of conservative political correctness.

A question one might ask is, just why would the Senate Majority leader from Alabama be doing, when he should be in DC, doing in a cheap foodery in Kentucky in the first place. Might they have been visiting friends? Possibly, but if so why are they not with those they are visiting or even have those people with them. And further, isn't Kentucky a red state? Just how long might it have taken McConnell to find a couple of hecklers against him in a conservative state?



So no on that TMZ interpretation. No one has offered another easily plausible interpretation of the video and situation.
This could just as easily have been a set up by McConnell and other right wingers to add one more case of disgruntled liberals ''attacking'' innocent conservative politicians in public. Because we should know by now that that is a major narrative of the conservative meme machine.

I offer these observations, not saying my observations are correct, it is just that that is what I saw from the video along with a couple of suggestions of what was really happening there. I was not present at that moment and have no further information to build upon.

I know that you support the current administration, DB, but I can't help but notice that you seemed to have missed the small fact that McConnell was dining at a place called Havana Rumba.

What's the lesser of these two offenses? That he was clearly at a communist rally, or his blatant (and insensitive) cultural appropriation?

Take your time.

Owner, Marcos Lorenzo immigrated to the U.S. from Cuba in 2000 hoping to realize the American Dream. His humble beginnings included plenty of hard work and determination as he learned the U.S. restaurant business. A civil engineer by training he applies a technical approach to the daily operations of the restaurants. However, cooking is his new found passion!


Havana Rumba

Now don't we look silly!

Something I've noticed from all this hoopla going on the past couple of years? People are now willing to trust a politician because they're part of a certain party. I remember when ATS didn't trust either party.

Oh well, those were the good ol' days I guess.

I believe the Senate is in recess and last time I checked a person is free to eat in the restaurant they choose if they can afford it.
Whether it is one or more people harassing McConnell, it is just plain wrong - and rather pathetic.

You did know, before you typed that, that that restaurant is owned by a former Cuban? You did, right??

Oops.

What's scary is that they don't even stop to consider the possibility of propaganda from their own side and just automatically accept that it happened at face value.

Identity politics is the worst, it puts party above all so any one person in ther party represents the whole party and must be defended at all costs.

Sad to see people who are so smart continuously get fooled. Those in power know all about psychology, this whole political circus is one big psychological operation. Look at people's attitudes, they're nasty and angry, those in power know how to divide us and they're doing a great job of it right now.

You sound defensive. Did I point you out in particular or does what I said hit a little close to home for you? Sounds like it, that's the only reason I can see for you getting offended.

By the way, great comeback. You must have spent all morning coming up with it.

Does cheap looking equate to bad, in your opinion? I've eaten in some places that looked cheap, but served excellent food, at very reasonable prices, which is the key to a good restaurant. A lot can be forgiven if the food is good.

Have you eaten there, so that you know first hand??

The very fact that he was harassed should be the point of discussion here, not the appearance of the restaurant. IMHO, of course.

That is all you have? WOW?
What is it about my observation that you agree with, or, disagree with? I thought it was a simple uneffected observation of that video. Do you see it otherwise? Without the glasses of liberal hatred?
