Humanity 101: Do not threaten people, including those who accuse someone of sexual assault or may not vote the way you want them to.

The Hill published an article yesterday about how Sen. Susan Collins and her office have received threats over Supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“Conservative” blogger Jennifer Rubin and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) decided it’s not a big deal and actually went on social media to MOCK Collins and her office.

Boohoo? Constant act as a victim? Excuse me? So it’s totally okay for these people to threaten Collins and her office? That’s how I interpreted those tweets.

From The Hill:

“My office has received some pretty ugly voicemails, threats, terrible things said to my staff,” Collins said in an interview with WVOM on Wednesday.

“This has been a very ugly process and I think that’s very unfortunate for everyone involved,” Collins added.

I blogged on September 12th about how leftist activists threatened Collins and her office while others have raised money to defeat her if she doesn’t vote against Kavanaugh. One person told a female staffer he wants her raped and impregnated. The office has received 3,000 coat hangers.

Swalwell decided to engage in a conversation with Jake Tapper after he called out the congressman. It didn’t end well for him.

Yes! I guess Swalwell and Rubin did not read the article because it noted how Collins made that same suggestion in her interview (emphasis mine):

Collins said in the interview that Kavanaugh “has received some threats and goodness knows” as the battle over his nomination kicks into high gear. But she also weighed in on reports stating that Ford had been forced out of her home due to death threats after her newly disclosed allegations against the Supreme Court nominee were made public.

The GOP senator said in the interview that she believes Ford should be provided with any protection that she may request “for herself and for her family,” but also urged Ford to speak with the Senate about her newly-disclosed allegations against Kavanaugh, saying that “it would be better for her.”

Ten minutes after the conversation, Swalwell apologized.

Unfortunately, nothing from Rubin.
