Democrat Senator Defends ‘Well Justified’ Harassment of Republicans By Leftists Over Judge Kavanaugh (VIDEO)
Chris Coons, a Democrat senator from Delaware, recently said on Meet the Press that the harassment of Republicans by leftists over Judge Kavanaugh was well justified. It’s amazing that Chuck Todd even asked him about it but his answer was equally stunning.

Coons Dodges on ‘Extreme Tactics’ Used Against GOP Senators, Praises ‘Well-Justified’ Passion of Left-Wing Activists
MSNBC’s Chuck Todd asked Coons about mailed coat hangers, threatening voicemails, and other tactics directed towards senators who may vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
“I’ve got to ask you about some of the tactics, about some of these special interest groups,” Todd began. Todd mentioned the “coat hangers sent to Senator Susan Collins’s office, some really nasty voicemails that have been played, you know, the tactics.” After recognizing that “there’s a lot of passion,” Todd asked of the tactics, “What do you make of ’em?”
Coons seized on the general idea of passion and avoided commenting specifically on the threats made against his Senate colleague Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine). “There is a huge amount of passion, as I think the whole country saw,” Coons replied. He noted that passion has been exemplified by the many arrests made during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings and the many calls made by constituents, and he called those actions “well justified.”

Is this why Democrats never call off their rabid supporters? Because they believe their actions are justified?
