Remember when Joe Biden called for calm and civility in politics when he was running for president? Well, I guess that’s out the window now.

In recent days, Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have been targets of a harassment campaign. Unhinged leftists have followed Sinema to her house and even into a public restroom.

“Yesterday, several individuals disrupted my class at Arizona State University. After deceptively entering a locked, secure building, these individuals filmed and publicly posted videos of my students without their permission — including footage taken of both my students and I using a restroom,” Sinema said in a statement released Monday. “It is the duty of elected leaders to avoid fostering an environment in which honestly-held policy disagreements serve as the basis for vitriol — raising the temperature in political rhetoric and creating a permission structure for unacceptable behavior.”

Joe Manchin was harassed by kayakers while he was on his boat over the weekend.
But these incidents, according to Joe Biden, are “part of the process.”

The moderate Democrats have refused to support the $3.5 trillion spending plan that Biden supports because of the high cost, effectively thwarting its passage

When asked to respond to the incidents, Biden claimed he didn’t think the tactics being used were appropriate, “but it happens to everybody.”

“The only people it doesn’t happen to are the people who have Secret Service standing around them,” Biden added. “So, it’s part of the process.”

Part of the process? Whatever happened to the “return to civility”?  Joe Biden should have condemned the behavior of activists who are targeting Manchin and Sinema because they thwarted his agenda. Does Joe Biden really believe such harassment is “part of the process,” or were his remarks just a dog whistle for activists to tell them to keep it up?
