The recent news that Mitch McConnell was verbally harassed and had his food stolen while he was dining with his wife is very disturbing. This has been happening far too often in America, and people should stop engaging in this non-constructive type of behavior.

The idea that someone can be stopped from enjoying a meal at any restaurant in America simply because another person does not agree with that person's political viewpoint is reprehensible, and it does nothing to help the aggressors make others better understand or agree with their point of view. Actually, I think it has the opposite effect.

Mitch McConnell is a politician who is not helping America. Still, as an American, he has the right to live in America and not be personally confronted by angry and aggressive people when he is doing things many Americans enjoy doing on a daily basis. There are other more constructive ways people can use to express their displeasure with political leaders. Those who can't think of how to do that without acting in an anti-social way in which they bother and scare more people than just their intended target should be dealt with in the criminal justice system.

That kind of idiocy does irreparable damage at many levels.
