Left-wing feminist website Jezebel is receiving criticism after openly calling for Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who was stalked and followed into a bathroom by immigration activists, to be “bullied” because she doesn’t support the Biden spending bill.
Activists from Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), which campaigns for loosening immigration laws, were seen on film harassing Sinema over her opposition to a spending bill that the Biden administration is trying to pass.
Sinema received harassment from the demonstrators, at least one of whom was an illegal alien, before being pursued into the bathroom.
“We knocked on doors for you, to get you elected. And just how we got you elected, we can get you out of office if you don’t support what you promised us,” one of the activists states as Sinema enters a stall.

While most people condemned the confrontation, feminist website Jezebel celebrated it with a tweet and headline asserting, “Absolutely Bully Kyrsten Sinema Outside Of Her Bathroom Stall.”

Conservatives were quick to respond.
“If this happened to AOC, and it was conservatives following her into the bathroom, you would cry about it nonstop for the next 15 years,” wrote Matt Walsh.

Others pointed out the hypocrisy of what the response would be if AOC had received the same treatment at the hands of conservatives.

Cabot Philips highlighted how the same publication had dismissed “free speech” as a legitimate justification for bullying women.

“Absolutely reported for inciting violence against an elected official,” tweeted Geoffrey Miller.

The tweet is clearly a direct violation of Twitter’s rules on bullying and harassment which state;
“We prohibit behavior that encourages others to harass or target specific individuals or groups with abusive behavior. This includes, but is not limited to; calls to target people with abuse or harassment online and behavior that urges offline action such as physical harassment.”
Jezebel is directly inciting people to harass Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, but don’t expect the Silicon Valley giant to take any action against their account.
The activists themselves are now being probed by authorities in Arizona and could be hit with over 2 years in jail due to the crime of filming someone in a bathroom without their consent being a class 5 felony.
In the age of mass Silicon Valley censorship It is crucial that we stay in touch.
