Dan Crenshaw Raises Key Questions to Twitter’s Jack Dorsey After Online Threats Against Sen. Sinema

A crap-ton has been written over the last several days concerning the disturbing incident from this past weekend involving radical left-wing “migrant youths” who followed Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a women’s restroom and filmed and badgered her as she sat behind a closed-door stall to use the facilities.

While the bulk of the debate has centered around the left’s/media’s rank hypocrisy when it comes to where to draw the line between appropriate forms of protest versus the stalking/harassment of public officials, one issue that hasn’t gotten as much attention is where Twitter stands on the bullying and harassment that has come from other Twitter users as well as left-wing media outlets that are openly encouraging people to bully Sinema everywhere, including in the restroom and on airplanes.

As we reported yesterday, so-called “feminists” have led the way in the online bullying campaigns, chief among them being Jezebel.com, which proudly published a piece originally headlined “Absolutely Bully Kyrsten Sinema Outside Of Her Bathroom Stall.” It has since been slightly changed to read, “Absolutely Confront Kyrsten Sinema Outside Of Her Bathroom Stall.”

In it, staff writer Ashley Reese mocked people who thought it was crossing a serious line to follow a woman into the women’s restroom and film her:

Given these reactions, one would think that an angry activist kicked open the bathroom door while Sinema was taking a massive dump. Instead, they just sort of stood around in a public space, politely but firmly demanding that Sinema to do the job they elected her to do. Even President Biden was seemingly unimpressed by all the whining, telling reporters during a Monday press conference that “It happens to everybody… it’s part of the process.”

He’s right. And for all the pearl-clutching, few are providing a more effective and safe alternative to what these activists did. They told Sinema, to her face—and through a door—that she was failing them and why. There was no violence, no rude language, nothing. Just a few constituents following their representative into a large bathroom to air their grievances.

[…]

But maybe it’s easier to act like a public bathroom is a sacred place than criticize the fact that Sinema decided to hide from her voters like a coward.

In response to the Jezebel article, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) raised important questions to the Twitter Powers That Be, wondering if they were going to apply their rules against urging online and offline harassment to Jezebel for encouraging the very type of disgusting behavior we saw take place at ASU – or if they were going to let it slide because Sinema “isn’t liberal enough” in their eyes:

They were rhetorical questions, of course, because as we all know – some through very frustrating and infuriating personal experiences – Twitter’s rules when it comes to bullying and harassment are highly selective, and tend to only swing one way (against conservatives, naturally).

On a related note, I don’t think I need to speculate on what the reactions of wokesters like Ms. Reese would be if right-wing activists including at least one who was a man followed her into the women’s restroom and began filming, because I think that should be pretty obvious – especially considering the fact that the rules leftists impose on others rarely if ever apply to them and the situations in which they find themselves.

Exhibit A:

I rest my case.
