Susan Collins calls the cops to report a vile hate crime due to plaster on the sidewalk

Call the ACLU! Call the ADL! Call the SPLC! GOP Senator Susan Collins has been severely accused of hate WITH SIDEWALK PLASTER.

Wonkers, we are deeply concerned. As the Bangor Daily News was the first to report, the Republican from Maine called the police to report a threatening message written by an unknown person or people who defaced the sidewalk outside his home, an act of gross vandalism that can only be repaired by a afternoon shower or from a garden hose.

“Susie, please, Mainers want WHPA —–> vote yes, clean up your mess,” wrote the vile criminal, asking Collins to vote for the Law on the protection of women’s health, a federal statute to protect nationwide access to abortion before the Supreme Court allows 26 states to ban it altogether. In February, Collins voted against passing the bill to a grassroots vote.

Presumably the part about her “mess” is a reference to Collins’ votes for judges Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, who assured her that they had the utmost respect for precedents, as if they were not awarded to the nation. court as part of the right’s 50-year campaign to undo every little social progress of the past two generations, with women’s rights to bodily autonomy the first prize.

“If this leaked draft opinion is the final decision and this report is accurate, it would be completely inconsistent with what Judge Gorsuch and Judge Kavanaugh have stated in their hearings and in our meetings in my office. Obviously, we will not know the decision and the reasoning of each judge until the Supreme Court officially announces its opinion in this case, “he said. She said last week, presumably sporting her signature Susan Collins frown, for terrible things she will spend exactly zero political capital to block.

There is no law against chalk drawings in Maine. And if there were, the police would have to arrest every eight-year-old girl who plays hopscotch on the asphalt, not just people who criticize politicians, because that’s the way the First Amendment goes, in theory anyway. However, Collins called the police for the chalk appeal, because he apparently thinks he is entitled to a buffer zone to separate her from his critics of him. Unlike, for example, women who access health care at Planned Parenthood or staff from abortion clinics in their own homes, none of whom are worthy of such protections.

“We are grateful to Bangor police officers and the city public works clerk who responded to the disfigurement of public property in front of our home,” Collins told the local newspaper.

Although police agreed the message “was not outright threatening,” the city of Bangor still sent a sanitation worker over a weekend to relieve Senator Snowflake of the unfortunate reminder that some 50 million American women and girls they will now be locked in states that deprive them of the right to control their own bodies, thanks to her and the GOP.

Because when you are a star in a counter-majority institution, you represent a counter-majority political party, you claim your own values ​​to a reluctant electorate as a complacency to your radical base, they let you do it.
