DC Socialist Group Chases DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Out of a Restaurant Shouting, “Shame!”

DC Socialist Group Chases DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Out of a Restaurant Shouting, “Shame!”

“We are here to tell her to put an end to separating families, to step down as head of the department, and that ICE and CBP must be abolished.”

Tuesday night, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was chased out of a D.C. Mexican restaurant by a group of socialist protestors shouting “shame!”

The Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America are demanding Nielsen step down and that ICE and CBP be abolished.

A video of the encounter inside the restaurant was posted to the group’s Facebook page with the caption:

We’re in downtown DC disrupting DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner at MXDC. The irony isn’t lost on us that this is a Mexican restaurant. Nielsen has led the program to tear apart familes [sic]. We are here to tell her to put an end to separating families, to step down as head of the department, and that ICE and CBP must be abolished #abolishICE #abolishCBP

And the video:

More from the New York Post:

Demonstrators occupied DXDC Cocina Mexicana at around 8 p.m. as Nielsen was attempting to have a meal with an unidentified man, according to a video posted on Facebook.

Staff members try to contain the situation as members of the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists flood the restaurant, the video shows.

“In a Mexican restaurant of all places,” one protester yells. “The fu–ing gall.”

At another point, a second member of the group plays recent audio of children crying at a detention center in Texas.

“How does it make you feel?” a protester yells.

In another video taken from outside the restaurant at around 8:20 p.m., Nielsen can be seen leaving the eatery and entering an SUV.

A spokesman for Homeland Security later said that Nielsen met some concerned citizens while having dinner.

“The Secretary and her staff heard from a small group of protestors who share her concern with our current immigration laws that have created a crisis on our southern border,” Tyler Q. Houlton tweeted.

Nielsen held a press conference Monday where she sought to clarify the child separation fiasco.

Her press conference is here:

President Trump thanks these ‘protesters’ for their generous in-kind donation to his re-election campaign.

Socialists shouting ‘shame’? I bet not one of these Reds owns a mirror.

How did this well organized mob know that Sec. Nielsen would be there at that time? According to news reports this was a “working dinner” so it’s a good bet that someone inside DHS who knew the Sec’s schedule supplied the information to the agitators. Great security at DHS; makes me feel safe.

    Wouldn’t be a hard stretch to see it turn to violence if they knew where she was.

    This sure looks, and smells, of a set up against her.

    Are we living in a banana republic? I am beginning to feel as if every single agency and department has been infested with SJWs who don’t care if they break laws anymore, seeing as no one gets prosecuted for their crimes other than the ones Herr Mueller goes after.

      JohnSmith100 in reply to oldgoat36. | June 20, 2018 at 8:37 am

      One or more of the people she was meeting was probably involved. I bet they even suggest the Mexican restaurant.

      And yet, the MSM loudly criticize Sec. Pruitt for traveling with a sizable security contingent, and claim that all the threats against him are “made up”.

      rdmdawg in reply to oldgoat36. | June 20, 2018 at 1:18 pm

      Yeah, two systems of laws these days, one for privileged communists and one for the rest of us. The very definition of Liberal Privilege.

    casualobserver in reply to Bucky Barkingham. | June 20, 2018 at 8:14 am

    No set up most likely. Mobs especially in DC can form almost immediately. Every one of them has a phone. None probably live that far away as DC isn’t so big. All it takes is one restaurant employee to signal using any social media app or even a text chain.

      Valerie in reply to casualobserver. | June 20, 2018 at 9:47 am

      I agree that a set-up is not a necessary explanation, but after the overt embrace of violence against Trump supporters by members of the Clinton campaign, it makes no sense to say that such action was “unlikely.”

      The DNC had it in their playbook. Project Veritas got campaign members to talk about it. Once some people were identified, the enterprising kiddies over at Reddit found the payments in the election database.

      The Clinton Campaign used rent-a-rioters and weak-minded fools to provoke violence. The Clinton Campaign has shown no sign of abating these tactics since the election.

        casualobserver in reply to Valerie. | June 20, 2018 at 10:07 am

        Who knows. But it is just as likely that the mob was spontaneous as it was some long planned event, assuming here schedule was known in advance.

    “According to news reports this was a “working dinner” so it’s a good bet that someone inside DHS who knew the Sec’s schedule supplied the information to the agitators. “

    It is a Mexican restaurant. I would bet there are Mexicans working there. Could be one of them recognized her, and is a member of this group, or knows someone who is. Nevertheless, the left did what it does, destroys.

    One day, they will accuse Trump people of being racists, because they never dine in a Mexican restaurant. Except Trump Tower, which has great taco salads.

    The swamp is deep and full of foul creatures. Every single one needs to be fired.

The left’s unbridled anger is out in the open for all to see now. The anger is a sign of the leftists absolute and utter impotence before President Trump. President Trump does not bend like RINO meat.

I’m just glad no one was hurt.

This time.

JohnSmith100 | June 20, 2018 at 8:35 am

The DC Socialist Group must be abolished. Round them up, put them on display where people can express their displeasure.

    oldgoat36 in reply to JohnSmith100. | June 20, 2018 at 10:06 am

    I wonder why these extreme left wing groups aren’t labeled terrorists like right wing groups (not of the extreme variety) were. One word why they are allowed to be out there… freedom.

      Milhouse in reply to oldgoat36. | June 20, 2018 at 11:23 am

      Labeled by whom? You’re free to label them any way you like, just as they label right-wing groups as they like.

      If you mean the US government, the Dept of State maintains a list of foreign terrorist organizations, but by definition no domestic group, right- or left-wing, can be designated in such a way.

        JohnSmith100 in reply to Milhouse. | June 20, 2018 at 5:32 pm

        It would still be fun to see these people put through the ringer, I am not suggesting any really serious consequences, but they should be made to sweat about their fate.

        murkyv in reply to Milhouse. | June 20, 2018 at 10:32 pm

        While I realize it wasn’t “official US policy”, I seem to recall the Speaker of the House, third in line to the Presidency, declaring the TEA Party a terrorist organization while speaking on the House floor.

        And wasn’t the last administrations DHS looking at ” right wing groups” as “domestic terrorists”?

          Milhouse in reply to murkyv. | June 21, 2018 at 2:26 am

          The current Speaker is free to do the same to whomever he likes. It means exactly as much as you doing it. “Third in line to the presidency” doesn’t give him any more authority than you have. The second in line has no authority over anything whatsoever, which is why the office was notoriously thought of as not worth a bucket, etc.

          DHS circulated a memo warning its employees to be careful about certain organizations; it didn’t affect those organizations at all, except to hurt their feelings. Again, you’re free to do this to the SPLC if you like.

    4th armored div in reply to JohnSmith100. | June 20, 2018 at 10:12 am


“and that ICE and CBP must be abolished”

I noticed that the IRS, the chief enforcement apparatus of collecting money for the greatest influence in our lives, namely government itself, was not on the list.

“All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state” – Benito Mussolini

Senator Chuck Schumer wants Trump to continue Obama’s phone & pen dictatorship: …they know legislation will take a very long time and is unlikely to happen, and the flick of a president’s pen could solve this tomorrow…

So we have a legislature that hasn’t passed a real budget in over a decade and now wants the President to write laws for them as well. Meanwhile, during the House DOJ/FBI corruption hearing, Congressman Cummings spews forth his virtuous tears & jeers performance to encourage us all to act now and think later.

What a disgusting cohort of the privileged we have serving us in Washington, DC.

    This attitude annoys me as well. I heard McCain and Flake were supporting get-tough border policies THREE years ago. It’s easy to be tough when you can rely on the President to accept the blame and simply refuse to enforce the laws you pass for purposes of politics and grandstanding, not to actually have them obeyed.

    If it is a bad law, repeal it. If it is a bad law, pass a new law. If it is an “okay” law exacerbated by a foolish court decision – which is roughly my position – then don’t point fingers at the President, whom you would be absolutely justified to impeach if he did not obey the laws as passed by Congress and interpreted by the courts. But, I apparently ask too much.

    healthguyfsu in reply to MSO. | June 20, 2018 at 12:08 pm

    To quote a protester: “The fu-king gall”

“Love Trumps Hate”
This reminds me of Tom Lehrer’s patter when introducing his song National Brotherhood Week: “I realize that there are some people who do not love their fellow man and I HATE people like that.”
Those on the Left aren’t just guilty of hypocrisy, many believe that their hypocrisy is 100% justified. Why? Because conservatives are bad, evil people. They genuinely believe that conservatives are racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, to say nothing of being selfish and greedy, desiring nothing more that to toss granny over a cliff rather than give up any of out ill-gotten gains. They don’t merely think that some conservatives are like that, they think it is the very nature of conservatives.
I did a blog post on The Morality of Liberalism vs. Conservatism, which references a very interesting study. I’ve done a shameless plug for it here before, but it interested, it is here ( ). In a nutshell, those on the Left simply cannot understand how conservatives think (conservatives have no problem understanding how liberals think). In their minds, the only explanation as to why we conservatives don’t think the same as they do is because we are all those nasty things mentioned above.

    Valerie in reply to topcat69. | June 20, 2018 at 9:57 am

    This is me, waving a big, fat BS flag. Just because jerk blabbermouths like Rush and Hannity like to insult Liberals as if Liberals are the problem doesn’t mean the rest of us have to embrace their psychobabble.

    The Communist Party in the United States lost all its support from sensible people, which is why they have tried to hide under various labels over time. Now they call themselves “socialist” or ‘Progressive,” but it is the same old totalitarian BS that never had a thing in common with Liberalism.

    America is the quintessential Liberal country. That is, it was founded on the proposition that governments are made by men to promote their general welfare. The way to make this work is to have individual rights, equal protection under the laws, and due process of law. Those are the essentials of Liberalism, not the nonsense spouted by the Democratic talking heads right now.

    The use by Rush and Hannity of the title of Conservatism is to make the salient point that the Democratic Party has abandoned the principles of Liberalism, and they are trying to preserve those principles, which is a tad convoluted and overly cute, for my taste.

      Mac45 in reply to Valerie. | June 20, 2018 at 10:53 am

      What constitutes “conservatism” and “liberalism” changes with time. This is why it is dangerous to try to label oneself as a Conservative or a Liberal. The meaning of the label keeps changing as time goes by.

      Conservative is defined as:
      1) Averse to change or innovation and holding traditional values. – adjective
      2) A person who is averse to change and holds traditional values. – noun

      Liberal is most closely defined in this context as:
      1) Regarding many traditional beliefs as dispensable, invalidated by modern thought, or liable to change.

      Today, the positions of the Founders are traditional and therefor conservative, even though they were considered liberal at the time of the founding of this nation. Liberal ideals would be those which do not reflect the positions of the Founders and the traditions which have grown up in this country in the first 150 years of this nation’s existence.

      Liberalism now embraces totalitarianism, state supported welfare, mob rule over the rule of law and a general reduction in personal liberty.

        Valerie in reply to Mac45. | June 20, 2018 at 6:20 pm

        Like the way the meaning of the Constitution changes over time? Do you really want to go there?

          Mac45 in reply to Valerie. | June 21, 2018 at 10:10 am

          Valerie, the Constitution is a contract with carefully written clauses. And, if those clauses are interpreted in the strictest manner possible, they “meaning” of the Constitution does not change much. However, by their very definitions, the terms conservative and liberal are completely flexible depending upon the circumstance pending at the time. What is a liberal position today, would become conservative 100 years from now, if it has been widely adopted by the society.

It was a set up

One would think the restaurant owner would have been on the phone to the cops and had those screaming threats dragged out for prosecution. Places like that in DC are valued for their discreet location where two or more high muckity-mucks can get together and discuss swamp things without having gators bother them.

Then again, if the owner got some pictures, he may just distribute a few hundred dollar bills to certain individuals and some ‘random’ muggings may leave the protesters with lasting aches and pains. Just saying, it’s the DC way.

    I won’t assume the owner wasn’t the one to call in the communists. Who’s to say.

    Valerie in reply to georgfelis. | June 20, 2018 at 10:01 am

    You ever try calling the DC police? This incident was doubtless over in a matter of minutes.

    I hope some of the patrons got and will post some of the footage. If that happens, we will find out whether there are some familiar faces among this group of “protesters.”

The emigration reform they want begins at Mexico’s southern border. That is well before the progress of child trafficking, before human rights violations, and separation of families. Mexico is a first-world, safe nation, right? They need to address human trafficking before shared responsibility. Well, we can help, if they ask.

Those scenes from the Obama era, peddled by the press without attribution, have suddenly triggered people. And the collateral damage along the trail of tears forced by social justice adventures in Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe, too?

bobinreverse | June 20, 2018 at 11:54 am

If the DC cops had been called would have been one of few times they arrive in time – to arrest Nielsen.

healthguyfsu | June 20, 2018 at 12:10 pm

This is not a protest…it’s a mob

Recent news: Nielsen apparently so panicked by getting yelled at by a bunch of Leftists, is offer an executive order for Trump to sign that would end separations. Once again, Trump caves to Schumer!

    You realize that’s a really good trick? One generally known as “deliberately flouting a court judgment and renouncing the rule of law” ?

    I’ve heard the talk too, but let’s see what actually happens.

      MarkS in reply to JBourque. | June 20, 2018 at 12:59 pm

      Bloomberg headline(paraphrased) President Schumer directs acting president Trump to sign an order ending separations and The Donald is compliant!

    Mac45 in reply to MarkS. | June 21, 2018 at 1:13 pm

    This might be true. However, the result of the EO is to force the Congress to step up and pay for housing “family” detainees, which wouldn’t be allowed under Flores, as the children can not be detained longer than necessary to place them with family or licensed programs. It would have forced Dems and pro-immigration interests to argue against reuniting families in order to prevent the children from being detained indefinitely. And, it has now resulted in the pro-immiration interests from showing their true goal, the immediate release of all illegal immigrants. And, because of the wording, the EO is not going to affect the current situation of seperating adults and children while in detention.

MacsenMcBain | June 20, 2018 at 12:58 pm

If I vote for Trump in 2020, it will be primarily to spite these people, and others like them.

This is all to maintain chaos….. the unrelenting drumbeat the Left promises will end if they get their way…until they want more. As Rush said today… the Left is pushing so hard they will get casualties. Who throws fire bombs, who shoots up places, who destroys to get their way? Now the Left has the bit in their teeth and will ramp this up now till election time.. it is all they have. It is desperation time. Same old playbook because human nature has not changed. The Left talks of high-mindedness but lives off of anything but.

It seems that one of the people who harassed Sec. Neilsen is a DOJ employee. Gotta love it.

This is how it went down 50 years ago:

If these goons keep this up, they’re likely to create some sympathetic martyrs as those willing to put up with some abuse volunteer to present themselves in places of public accommodation where they may not be welcome.

One difference, however, is that the press covered this fifty years ago, but likely will not do so now. Then again, there are other ways of reaching the public now, and it’s certainly far easier to capture events on video than it would have been then.
