Earlier today, I was watching the videos of the leftist mob surrounding and attacking Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens as they sat down for breakfast in a Philadelphia cafe.
If you would like to watch it yourself, you can follow this link where the videos were covered previously.
I watched as members of the group got dangerously close as they blew whistles right in the ears of Owens and Kirk, as well as stuck bullhorns in their faces while they spoke into them. This caused Owens to become angry and warn the woman with the bullhorn to keep it out of her face.
As I watched, I began wondering how I would react in this same situation. If it were myself and a political colleague who knew what the job entailed, I’m more or less sure I’d have handled it exactly how Owens and Kirk did. Smile, wave, and film everything. Even having water thrown on me (assuming what was thrown on Kirk in one of the videos was water) would probably cause me to put my hands up to show that I’m not retaliating despite the fact that it would be considered assault on their part. I don’t want the left to have any excuse to escalate the situation further, and I don’t like the feeling of handcuffs myself.
