Hawaiian Senator Mazie Hirono entered the national spotlight by following in the footsteps of her fellow Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris to make the Kavanaugh confirmation process a political circus. The hearings may be over now, but Hirono’s public bouts of insanity continue unabated.
Appearing on CNN yesterday, Hirono justified calls for violence that fellow Senator Cory Booker and Representative Maxine Waters have made before her. Note that these new calls for confrontation and violence have all come after a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter nearly shot Steve Scalise to death, and after Rand Paul was seriously injured by a neighbor. In other words: she’s well aware the consequences of her rhetoric.
Hirono was asked by Dana Bash whether or not she thought some left-wingers were going to far in their opposition to Kavanaugh. “It’s another thing to run senators out of restaurants, go to their homes. Is that going too far?” she asked. The answer from Hirono can be summarized in a single word: no. I’m providing a single word summary only because Hirono offered up a word salad as her answer.

“I think that it just means that there are a lot of people who are very, very much motivated by what is going on, because what is — what happened with Judge Kavanaugh is, from the very veginning, this was not a fair process. What the Republicans did was to telegraph – after Dr. Ford’s account came forward, what they telegraphed was, one, Dr. Ford, we don’t want to hear from you. Two, if we have to hear from you, we’re going to rig the hearings, that there…” Hirono stated. Bash interrupted “Should the going after people at restaurants stop?”
Hirono then justified the harassment – because of white supremacy (the Left’s new boogeyman), or something. “Well, this is what happens. They — because when you look at white supremacists and all of that, this is what is coming forth in our country. There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country. But this is the kind of activism that occurs. And people make their own decisions. If they violate the law, then they have to account for that.”
A truly incoherent comment, for sure. Not only is there zero evidence that any of those harassed by hysterical leftists are white supremacists, the majority of those antifa agitators are themselves white. When a group of white protesters is preventing a Cuban American like Ted Cruz from eating his dinner in peace, how is this combating so-called “white supremacy”? Hirono also didn’t denounce violence – just acknowledged that some protesters might get violent and have to face legal consequences. In other words, Hirono’s message to antifa seems to be that violence is OK – just be sure you know what you’re getting yourself in for.

Hirono has only continued to become more abhorrent since the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. She openly admitted that her main goal was to obstruct Kavanaugh’s nomination for as long as possible, and told CNN’s Jake Tapper that she believes Kavanaugh to have committed sexual assault because of “how he approaches his [legal] cases.” I doubt that logic would pass in court.
Hirono also proved how little she actually cares about the alleged victims she claimed to care about, and sent out numerous fundraising emails during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings (that she’d later have to apologize for). It’s unfortunate how liberal the population of Hawaii is- because if she represented any other state (with the exception of California), she’d be long gone come November.
