Bookstore Owner Defends Bannon’s Right To Be Left Alone After Harassment
A the owner bookstore in Richmond, VA ejected a customer after she harassed former Trump official Stephen K. Bannon yesterday.
“Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business,” said Nick Cooke, owner of Black Swan Books. “I asked her to leave, and she wouldn’t. And I said, ‘I’m going to call the police if you don’t,’ and I went to call the police and she left,” Cooke said. “And that’s the end of the story.”
Cooke said the woman called Bannon a “piece of trash.”
Bannon is the latest Trump official to be harassed in public following a call by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) to “push back” against Trump allies two weeks ago.
“And I want to tell you,” she said in the interview, “for these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, to be able to stop at a gas station, to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them until they tell the president: ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’ ”
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson was chased out of a Mexican restaurant last week, as was senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was refused service at a Lexington, VA restaurant Saturday.
BLP Passage Ends.
Since BLP’s report on Waters, Miller’s home was surrounded by protestors while “Wanted” posters featuring his face were plastered all over D.C., former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt was harassed while eating at a restaurant, and a 16-year old was assaulted for wearing a MAGA hat at a Texas Whataburger.
The left’s deranged hatred for anyone associated with Trump is becoming dangerous and militant.
