Ted Cruz: Why is the Democratic Party Being Silent on Brian Sims Bullying Women?

Texas Ted Cruz Social Media Politics planned parenthood Pennsylvania North Carolina Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture brian sims Allow Media Exception Abortion

As I wrote yesterday, Daily Wire‘s Matt Walsh and pro-life warriors like Abby Johnson and Live Action’s Lila Rose will be at a Friday rally in Pennsylvania to stand up to Democratic state Rep. Brian Sims’s (D) recent bullying of an elderly woman and praying teenagers in front of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood.

Because there has been so much backlash and pushback against Sims from conservatives and pro-lifers, he issued a non-apology on Twitter yesterday. As Red State‘s Brandon Morse pointed out, Sims tried to paint himself as a misguided hero for his gross mistreatment of the pro-life women in front of the Planned Parenthood.

Another angle to the Sims story that has frustrated a lot of people is the Democratic party’s non-reaction to it. You can best believe that if this had been a Republican state representative harassing liberal women and infringing on their First Amendment rights, it would be on the front pages of the NY Times and the Washington Post.

All the major news news networks would be angrily discussing it and how it fits the GOP’s “anti-women” agenda, and talking heads and feminists would be demanding Republicans from Trump on down condemn the Republican state representative’s actions.

The Democratic party’s silence on this matter has not gone unnoticed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who took to the Twitter machine yesterday to ask a question:

I suspect Cruz’s question is rhetorical in nature. Because they’ve had plenty of time to respond to this story – but they haven’t.

And while the Democratic party has been silent on Sims’s repulsive actions, the mainstream media haven’t been much better, as Newsbusters reports:

It takes one “smirk” from a conservative teen in a MAGA hat to generate a national news meltdown, yet prolonged verbal harassment from a Democratic state representative towards an older woman praying in protest at a Planned Parenthood clinic hardly gets any mainstream attention. Neither ABC, CBS or NBC nightly news programming paid any attention to Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims’ 8-minute plus video of him bullying a peaceful pro-life protester.

While this media behavior is certainly not shocking — what self-aggrandizing mainstream journo would want to sell out a pro-choice lawmaker? — it is absolutely disgusting and betrays a horrific double standard.

[…]

Neither ABC, NBC nor CBS national programs picked up on the story. But let’s not pretend that stories like these aren’t in their wheelhouse. Recall that during the week of January 21, two out of the three networks, both ABC and NBC, rushed to judgment over an ambiguous “smirk” by pro-life supporter and MAGA hat-wearer Nicolas Sandmann.

On top of that, Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania’s “condemnation” of Sims’s behavior has to be one of the lamest in history:

“While we do not condone Representative Sims’ approach, our patients deserve to have access to health care without shame and stigma. Nobody should have to face shaming, judgment, harassment, or intimidation in order to get or provide health care,” [president and CEO Dayle] Steinberg said in the statement.

“At Planned Parenthood, we work every day to ensure every patient receives high-quality health care they need – including abortion services – in a safe, respectful environment,” he continued. “It’s important to know that in Pennsylvania, we’re facing several abortion ban bills that are being pushed by politicians who want to roll back the right to safe, legal abortion. We thank our champions – including Representative Sims – for their unwavering opposition to these bans.”

This is what they do – from the Democratic party, to the mainstream media, to feminist groups. Conservative women who come under attack don’t count in the left’s “war on women” narrative. Only liberal women do, because conservative women refuse to bow down to the left’s dogma on the issue of abortion, and for that, liberals believe conservative women deserve whatever punishment they get.

‘OMG’: Huma Abedin’s Response When Told That Server Had Been Hacked

At 2:57 am on January 9, 2011, Clinton aide Huma Abedin received an email from technology pro Justin Cooper, who oversaw Hillary Clinton’s private email servers.

Cooper: “I had to shut down the server. Someone was trying to hack us and while they did not get in i didnt want to let them have the chance to. I will restart in the morning.”

Abedin: “omg”

This little tidbit was included in a batch of newly released, partially redacted FBI documents from their “Midyear Exam” (ME) probe which can be viewed here. ME was the FBI’s codename for their investigation into Clinton’s use of a private server during her tenure as Secretary of State. This document indicates that there were many occasions when Clinton’s technology team “either suspected it had been hacked or seemingly acknowledged that security measures had come up short.”

This batch contains 277 pages of email exchanges, text messages and information about the specific equipment used by Clinton and her minions.

The documents include an email Abedin sent to Cheryl Mills and several other State Department officials three hours after she learned from Cooper that someone had tried to hack the server which said, “Don’t email hrc [Hillary Rodham Clinton] anything sensitive. I can explain more in person.”

An email from Cooper to Hillary said, “It is a constant fight to keep up with the security measures and unfortunately we keep seeing reminders of why we need to.”

After Clinton aide Monica Hanley had received a suspicious email in August 2010, she wrote to Abedin, “Yeah I wonder if someone hacked in. that stinks.”

Handwritten notes from the FBI’s interview of Justin Cooper in March 2016 start on page 19.

Note: Cooper, you may recall, was the employee who had famously smashed several of Hillary’s old devices with a hammer. That information came from a different source.

Here are some of the most notable revelations from the Cooper interview notes:

The server rooms in both locations were often left exposed.

He described the presence of a “SCIF” — an acronym “sensitive compartmented information facility” — in Clinton’s Chappaqua, N.Y., and Washington, D.C., homes.

Open door — not always secured, sometimes when HRC not @ residence was not closed. (both reside).

He described “safes” in at least one of the SCIFs, followed by a note from the agent, “No understanding of when open/closed” — although it was unclear whether that comment referred to the safes or the doors leading to the server room.”

There were “home computers” but “no secure computers” in the SCIFs…However, “phone/fax/video” were “secure” in the residences.

There were reports in August 2018 that Clinton’s server had been hacked by a Chinese state-owned company. The business, which operated in the D.C. area, penetrated Hillary Clinton’s private server and inserted code that forwarded copies of Clinton’s emails to the Chinese company in real time. I wrote about that here.

The Daily Caller’s Richard Pollock broke the story. According to Pollock, “The Chinese wrote code that was embedded in the server, which generated an instant “courtesy copy” for nearly all of her emails and forwarded them to the Chinese company.”

This was discovered by the Intelligence Community Inspector General in early 2015. The IG immediately briefed FBI officials, one of whom was Peter Strzok.

A former intelligence official who spoke to The Daily Caller would not divulge the name of the Chinese company, but  did say it was a “front group” for the Chinese government.

The FBI denied the story. An FBI spokesperson told Fox News that “The FBI has not found any evidence the servers were compromised.”

However, a May 2016 email from Strzok, obtained by Fox News last year, said “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some Clinton emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.”

It sure looks like Hillary Clinton and those who worked closely with her were well aware of the impropriety of her use of a private server. It also appears that the FBI was covering up for her.

We’re now starting to see irrefutable evidence that Clinton used her private email account to conduct all of her State Department business regardless of whether or not it was classified.

Documents are now being released at a faster rate than in the past. We’ve learned a lot about the massive abuses of power by Obama era officials, but it’s still only a fraction of what Attorney General William Barr knows. The directness of his testimony during the recent Congressional hearings made that clear.

Barr’s comments have scared the *%$* out of Democrats and driven them into a state of panic.

At any rate, it looks like the parade of documents has finally begun. Más, más!

If Donald Trump Is A Con Man, The Media Are The Biggest Marks In History

Westlake Legal Group trump-thumbs-up-620x358-copy If Donald Trump Is A Con Man, The Media Are The Biggest Marks In History media bias Media Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Con Man Allow Media Exception 2016

The New York Times is running a story that shows President Donald Trump lost nearly a billion dollars in failed businesses over the course of a decade. As expected, many in the media are out in force, noting that it is more proof that Trump is a con man and a liar.

The stories of Trump’s failed businesses are stories that were run at many right-leaning outlets back in 2016 – including here at RedState – and would not be new to the media if they had covered Trump honestly back then.

It is funny, truly funny, to see many of the same people who gave Trump enormous coverage in the primaries and paved the way for his nomination call him a con man acting like a wealthy mogul in order to increase his own popularity and social value. Essentially, they are outing themselves as the people who fell for his con in the primaries.

Anyone who paid attention in 2016 knew the stories of Trump’s failures in the business world. They already knew about the string of failed experiments Trump attached his name to. The media had access to these stories, but instead gave countless hours of TV coverage, inches of print coverage, and thousands upon thousands of tweets about his crowd sizes, his audiences, his message, and everything else about his campaign. They gave him millions in unpaid advertising in their new programs, papers, magazines, and websites, and they now have the audacity to point out that Trump is a “con man” who has failed at every business venture he’s attempted.

You know what he hasn’t failed at? He hasn’t failed at conning the media into giving him free airtime. He hasn’t failed at making them oppose him so vigorously that his conflicting messaging, questionable statements, and outright lies don’t penetrate to the American public. He gets them to constantly lose their minds over every little thing even remotely related to his presidency that all people see are crazed media figures lashing out.

Despite all their negative coverage, Trump’s favorability isn’t tanking. It’s low, but it’s steady, and even showing signs of increasing. The economy is doing much better because of his regulatory rollback, and jobs are being created at a much faster rate than the Obama Administration could have ever dreamed of inspiring. Americans saw smaller tax bills (or bigger tax returns) in April and instantly knew what happened.

That isn’t a con. That isn’t a lie. That is what the public sees. For all Trump’s faults, his administration is actually doing a lot of things right. The insane coverage and the speculation over what Trump might or might not do/cause to happen don’t make a difference compared to the results.

So, while the media is busy outing themselves as “victims” of a “con man” and opposing him every step of the way despite being a large reason as to why he’s in office right now, Trump is going to continue doing what he’s been doing, and they are going to fail to understand why they don’t have any affect on that.

Ever since the Mueller report was released and it was revealed that President Trump had ordered White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller (SPOILER ALERT: He didn’t), the House Democrats have been all mouth-frothy and thigh-sweaty to get their hands on various documents that McGahn provided to the Special Counsel. The White House and McGahn have not been all that gung-ho about providing the documents so Fat Jerry Nadler’s committee issued a subpoena. Today, McGahn’s attorney told the committee that he would not be honoring the subpoena.

“The committee seeks to compel Mr. McGahn to produce White House documents the executive branch has directed that he not produce,” Burck wrote in a letter, obtained by POLITICO, to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.).

“Where co-equal branches of government are making contradictory demands on Mr. McGahn concerning the same set of documents, the appropriate response for Mr. McGahn is to maintain the status quo unless and until the committee and the executive branch can reach an accommodation,” Burck added.

At the same time, the White House was telling Nadler, via their directive to McGahn, that he probably shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for the documents to show up:

“The White House records remain legally protected from disclosure under longstanding constitutional principles, because they implicate significant executive branch confidentiality interests and executive privilege,” Cipollone wrote to Burck on Tuesday. “For these reasons, the Acting Chief of Staff to the President, Mick Mulvaney, directs Mr. McGahn not to produce these White House records in response to the committee’s April 22 subpoena.”

What is going to make this much more difficult for Nadler, is that former White House lawyer Ty Cobb structured the access of Mueller’s people to McGahn’s documents as executive branch employees being allowed temporary and limited access to those documents and the White House approved the documents Mueller included in his report. Because the documents were never “produced” or “turned over” as part of a subpoena process, the White House retains control of them.

At some point, Nadler is either going to have to roll the dice and go to court…and probably, in the long run, get his fat, gravy-infused butt handed to him…or he’s going to be a laughing stock. Wait…too late for that.

BREAKING: NY Times Obtained Trump’s Tax Information For The Years 1985-1994

The New York Times has obtained a decade of Trump’s tax information from 1985-1994. They did not receive copies of the actual returns, only limited information about them.

Specifically, the newspaper “obtained printouts from his official Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts, with the figures from his federal tax form, the 1040, from someone who had legal access to them.”

This information showed that Trump reported $1.17 billion in business losses over that period.

The Times reported they contacted the White House several weeks ago about this information and a senior official issued the following statement:

The president got massive depreciation and tax shelter because of large-scale construction and subsidized developments. That is why the president has always scoffed at the tax system and said you need to change the tax laws. You can make a large income and not have to pay large amount of taxes.

According to the Times:

On Saturday, after further inquiries from The Times, a lawyer for the president, Charles J. Harder, wrote that the tax information was “demonstrably false,” and that the paper’s statements “about the president’s tax returns and business from 30 years ago are highly inaccurate.” He cited no specific errors, but on Tuesday added that “I.R.S. transcripts, particularly before the days of electronic filing, are notoriously inaccurate” and “would not be able to provide a reasonable picture of any taxpayer’s return.”

A former I.R.S. official said that, “far from being considered unreliable, data used to create such transcripts had undergone quality control for decades and had been used to analyze economic trends and set national policy. In addition, I.R.S. auditors often refer to the transcripts as “handy” summaries of tax returns.”

The article listed the five top takeaways from the financial data which are printed below. Details can be viewed here.

Everyone knows this was a particularly difficult period for Trump financially. News of his financial problems appeared regularly in the New York newspapers throughout those years.

It would be interesting to find out who revealed this financial data to the New York Times.

All in all, this information is a great big nothing burger.

WATCH: CNN’s Cuomo and Insane Pro-Abortion Panelist Declare Unborn Babies Aren’t Human

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2018-09-06-at-9.03.12-AM-620x304 WATCH: CNN’s Cuomo and Insane Pro-Abortion Panelist Declare Unborn Babies Aren’t Human Rick Santorum republicans Politics News Media human beings Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats CNN Christine Quinn Chris Cuomo babies Allow Media Exception Abortion

CNN really delivers the gems sometimes. Last night during Chris Cuomo’s show, we may have gotten one of the greatest “this is CNN” moments we have ever witnessed.

Hosting a panel featuring former Republican Sen. Rick Santorum and Christine Quinn, with Cuomo and Quinn taking the pro-abortion advocacy side of things. The trio began discussing the Georgia “heartbeat bill” passed earlier Tuesday which would effectively ban abortions in most circumstances.

After some back and forth, the panel got onto the subject, Santorum raised the question as to whether or not a baby inside a mother was a human being. Cuomo and Quinn, multiple times, flatly denied that it was human and continued to tell Santorum that he no one getting an abortion is happy about getting one.

As I’ve covered before, that’s a flat-out lie.

Cuomo gave Quinn the last word, and that’s when the pro-abortion advocate made one of the most ridiculous statements ever heard out of CNN.

“When a woman gets pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her. It’s part of her body,” said Quinn.

Ya know, the left likes to claim it’s the party of science, but here we are seeing them proving that they’re more like the party of morbid fantasies. Apparently, the Georgia bill, which describes any baby with a heartbeat in the womb as a person, has really driven the left to take the most extreme opposing side it could.

That side appears to be the side of denying that the baby inside a woman’s womb isn’t even human. This is the picture perfect example of lunacy.

If you would like to see the context in its entirety, you can watch the nearly ten minute back and forth between Santorum and the pro-abortion fantasy squad. I recommend you take the time to watch it because it really highlights how extreme the left has become on the issue.

Twitter Wrongly Banned an AOC Parody Account. But is it Any Different Than the Real One?

[SCREENSHOT FROM URL]

 

On Monday, Twitter banned an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez parody account, according to Fox, “apparently because it sounded too much like” the actual congresswoman in its mockery.

The account labeled itself a parody in both its name and biography. However, Twitter explained that @AOCPress was shut down because of its “misleading account information in order to engage in spamming, abusive, or disruptive behavior including attempts to manipulate the conversations on Twitter,” as per its regulations.

In other words, the account didn’t do what Twitter claimed it did.

#Baloney

The account’s creator, Michael Morrison, also got canned.

An email from the platform pointed out this, too:

“You also may not ‘post duplicative or substantially similar content, replies, or mentions over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account, or create duplicate or substantially similar accounts.’ This account will not be reinstated.”

Yappin’ to HumanEvents.com, Michael said he thinks he got the turd treatment because his creation’d become such a hit:

“In the past month and a half alone, the account grew by roughly 50,000 followers. We’ve had tweets with over 30,000 likes on them, so I think Twitter decided it was time for [the account] to go.”

It’s easy to imagine it growing, and it’s even easier to believe it could get confused with the real person — in an election for “Purveyor of the Dumbest Things Ever Said in Politics,” in a matter of mere months, the FartFighter’s elevated herself to the level of Fierce Contender (here, here, here, here, and here).

So a parody account farted back. No surprise.

But then Twitter pulled the plug…or, plugged the…you know.

And some people are protesting. Like ol’ DJTJ:

Some believe AOC is a parody of AOC, so the blur was somethin’ Twitter didn’t like:

@AOCPress isn’t the only conservative(?) tweeter getting its beak shut as of late: As I covered on April 30th, Oscar nominee James Woods got thrown into the social media slammer (here).

But have no fear: the Big Cheese is watchin’ like a hawk. And you know they ain’t gonna muzzle that squawker:

I haven’t seen @AOCPress’s material, but it is hard to imagine how one might take the absurdity of her statements and the ferocity of her misunderstanding to greater heights. She thinks everything can be free for everyone without most everyone having to pay for everything to be free for them; she asserts that we end air travel as she flies; and she gives interviews like this:



If they’re gonna ban @AOCPress for being a parody, they’d might as well close up shop for @CNN.

-Alex

P.S. Speaking of parody, why isn’t SNL milking the goldmine of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for all its worth? Maybe because of this.

Twitter’s Not Just Banning Parodies – They’re Banning Links to a GOP Candidate’s Website

Over the last week, Twitter’s been purging accounts – almost exclusively of the conservative variety – with alarming frequency. James Woods, an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez parody account, and David Horowitz are among those banned in the last two days.

Jack’s now adding election interference to his repertoire, banning users from posting a link to Los Angeles City Council candidate Brandon Saario’s website just a month before Election Day.

Saario knew that he was facing an uphill battle in getting the word out about his campaign in Democrat-controlled Los Angeles and knew that Twitter, Facebook, and the like weren’t exactly friendly to conservative candidates or causes. But, as everyone who follows or works in politics knows, any serious candidate must have a presence on all of these platforms.

Former State Assembly candidate Roxanne Beckford Hoge sounded the alarm:

Users who tried to click through to Saario’s website from his Twitter profile received a scary message:

Those using Twitter’s desktop site received the following message when attempting to send any tweet containing a link to Saario’s website. Tweets with the same verbiage, but no website link, were allowed to go through.

Here’s one example of verbiage Twitter classified as “might be automated.”

When reached by RedState, Saario said he hadn’t received anything from Twitter notifying him that there could be a problem with the link to his website or with automated posts, or what he could do to rectify the situation. He said the same thing happened about a month ago and after multiple messages to @TwitterSupport the ability to post a link was restored. This time, it’s been 48 hours with no response from Twitter.

There has been no visible response from the California GOP or the Los Angeles County GOP to this issue on social media.

If it’s not okay for bots to interfere in the electoral process, why is it okay for @Jack to systematically silence conservative voices?

Newly released text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page show them questioning the origin of various stories they were seeing in the news.   

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, sent a letter to Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael K. Atkinson to find out if he’s launched a probe “into these apparent leaks.” They wrote:

These texts and emails raise a number of serious questions and concerns. For example, who are the ‘sisters’ and what does it mean to say that the ‘sisters have [been] leaking like mad’?  What are they worried about, and what are they kicking into ‘overdrive’?  Which ‘agency’ is he referring to and why does Strzok believe the referenced news article highlights that ‘agency as [a] source of some of the leaks’?

On December 16, 2016, Strzok sent a text to Page: “I think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking into overdrive.” “Our sisters” is a reference to the CIA, which is the sister agency to the FBI. John Brennan was the CIA Director at the time.

On April 13, 2017, Strzok sent an email to members of his counterintelligence team which said, “I’m beginning to think the agency got information a lot earlier than we thought. They haven’t shared it completely with us. They’re leaking it. Might explain all these weird seemingly incorrect leads all these media people have.”

Rush Limbaugh addressed these communications on his radio show on Tuesday. He said:

Strzok and Page are seeing stories appearing in the media about the Trump-Russia investigation and they know the information is incorrect. And they immediately think that this stuff is coming from the CIA.

Now, this is significant, because we now know that there was no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. So it looks like — and the source for this is Strzok and Page, the FBI agents. It looks like the CIA was, in fact, leaking false Trump-Russia stories to the press to undermine Trump. These are leaks that even the FBI agents running their own version of a coup thought were wrong and incorrect.

These FBI people are looking at a bunch of stuff in the media that isn’t true, at least as far as they know it.

And they’re concluding that Brennan and the CIA are leaking and putting this stuff in the media that they, then, have to deal with themselves. And they are concluding here, these are “incorrect leads all these media folks have.” That is a solid indication that the FBI’s looking at this as it’s happening, and that the CIA is releasing a bunch of BS that even the FBI thought was BS. And the media was just swallowing it all up, not questioning any of it.

And that’s because it came from Obama’s CIA, which they revere.

On December 14, 2016, NBC News published an article entitled “U.S. Officials: Putin Personally Involved in U.S. Election Hack.”

It says:

U.S. intelligence officials now believe with ‘a high level of confidence’ that Russian President Vladimir Putin became personally involved in the covert Russian campaign to interfere in the U.S. presidential election, senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News…Two senior officials with direct access to the information say new intelligence shows that Putin personally directed how hacked material from Democrats was leaked and otherwise used. The intelligence came from diplomatic sources and spies working for U.S. allies, the officials said.

Strzok and Page know they didn’t leak this information and assume their “sisters” at The Agency did. And the timing of the NBC article coincides with Strzok’s December text.

Limbaugh said:

This is a flat out lie. Either somebody literally made this up, or they got scammed by some agents in Russia who are running a scam on Brennan and they knew what Brennan wanted to hear, so they told him. Who knows how it happened, where it was originally sourced? But this has to be somebody at The Agency telling this to NBC.

This is the kind of crap that was going on. I was infuriated. I was. I cannot tell you how enraged I was during these entire two years. Every day, there was stuff like that. Every day, and four times a day, because once NBC ran it then it was picked up by the New York Times and the Washington Post, and it was an echo chamber for every one of these cockamamie, lying assertions such as that.

John Brennan and James Clapper, who was the Director of National Intelligence at the time will have to account for this and much more.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz report due in about three weeks will address FBI leaks to the media, in addition to their alleged FISA abuses. Leaks by the CIA and any other intelligence agencies implicated in this conspiracy will require a separate investigation. It’s likely that Attorney General William Barr’s DOJ is already on it.

We learn new information every day, but we can be sure that Barr knows a great deal more.

The Democrats feel the walls closing in on them and as their fear increases, their narrative becomes more and more desperate. Consider how little time it took to turn William Barr into a villain. It’s as if the Deep State has a formalized “central command” which issues the orders and the talking points.

The problem is that many Americans believe the rubbish they hear from the mainstream media. Half of America probably thinks William Barr is a criminal.

The Trump/Barr camp has to start fighting back even though they may not have all the answers yet.

Something must be done to stop the madness.

My Red State colleague Alex Parker has written about recent incidents involving PA state Rep. Brian Sims (D) engaging in despicable behavior against peaceful pro-lifers at a local Planned Parenthood in Philadelphia.

In one incident, Sims bullied an elderly pro-life woman , demanding her home address, and mocking her Christian faith. In another, he made a video offer to Twitter followers of $100 to dox three teenagers who he harassed as they peacefully prayed outside of the Planned Parenthood.

Because of the relentless backlash that has ensued, Sims, who fancies himself as a one-man wrecking crew in defending far left causes, issued a non-apology apology today on social media. His statement doesn’t really quite cover the fact that he, as a government official, was interfering with American citizens and their right to protest.

In response to Sims’s reprehensible behavior, the Daily Wire‘s Matt Walsh, who frequently writes about pro-life issues, had the idea of organizing a rally at that same Planned Parenthood to counter Sims. The idea, he writes, has taken off:

Last night, I suggested on Twitter that we organize a massive rally at that very same Planned Parenthood in Philadelphia. I thought it would be good to show Sims and everyone else that we are not going to sit back submissively while pro-lifers are abused for speaking out in defense of the unborn. Happily, this rally is now becoming a reality. Minutes after I sent that tweet, a number of pro-life groups reached out to help organize. Several prominent conservative voices expressed their desire to be a part of the effort. Hundreds of people said they would like to attend.

So, at 11 AM this Friday, I will be at that clinic on 1144 Locust St in Philadelphia alongside Abby Johnson, Lila Rose, Graham Allen, and many others. If Sims wants to show up with his camera again, any one of us would be more than happy to engage with him. I know he prefers to target elderly women and teenage girls, but now he’ll have the opportunity to pick on someone his own size. The lesson here is simple: If you try to intimidate us into silence, we will only get louder. Bullying tactics will achieve the exact opposite of what you intended. That’s the takeaway.

Walsh even encouraged Sims on Twitter to attend the rally with camera in hand:

This ought to be good.
