Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich is the latest Democrat to attack Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema over her vote to keep the filibuster. In a since-deleted tweet, Reich suggested Democrats should assault Sinema for breaking with her Democrat colleagues.
On Wednesday, Republicans defeated an effort to change filibuster rules in order for Democrats to push their voting rights legislation through the upper chamber. Democrat Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema voted with Republicans to uphold the filibuster in its current form.

Fox News reports:
National Review’s Charles Cooke said Reich’s remark was tantamount to saying Sinema “must be slapped around by her party if she fails to follow the demands of a white man.”
“No big deal,” tweeted radio host Larry O’Connor. “Just Democrat/Socialist icon [Robert Reich] encouraging violence against a female senator who didn’t vote the way he wanted.”
Reich hasn’t apologized or offered any additional comment since deleting the original tweet about Sinema. The Arizona Democrat has been the subject of sharp and even personal attacks from the left for maintaining her support for the filibuster. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said Manchin and Sinema didn’t care about Blacks and minorities in an interview last weekend.
Reich, now a professor at the University of California-Berkeley, served in the Clinton administration. The left-wing economist has made appearances on CNN and MSNBC over the years to comment on political and economic matters.
Robert Reich needs to be sued by Sinema for trying to invoke physical harm to her body!
Suing this POS is exactly what Sinema needs to do. And hire a bodyguard or take the training necessary to flatten anyone following her into bathrooms, etc. who attacks her. The party of nitwit dimwits is going too far and charges for inciting harm on her need to be criminal and civil against him and those stupid enough to continue this harassment that can and likely will include physical harm and mental already. Arrest and charge the moron and any who act as well. This article proves no one can fix STUPID!
In over seventy years I have never seen such uncivil people in power, too stupid to keep their mouths shut. Disgusting how low the DNC and dimwit nitwits have gone.
I agree, I am a 78 year old voter, and have followed politics since I was 18 and what I see today is the DEMORATS doing everything to destroy this Country and turn it into another VENEZUELA.
Remember the Third REICH: ‘Papers, please!’
You coined it perfectly, we the people must be aware of what these lunatics want.
A MASS BLM WH ENCOURAGED NOT SO PEACEFUL PROTEST NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE AT THIS MAGGOT RAT HOLE. HES GOING TO ENCOURAGE VIOLENCE AGAINST HER, BRING IT TO HIS DOOR. THESE FELONS NEED TO BE PUNISHED.
Why is this no surprise? The Democrats are simply continuing to show their true colors. They are as transparent as can be and we should consider our conservative selves fortunate for it.
Why hasn’t the MSM jumped all over this? Answer? Outrage belongs solely to the bloviating Ass-Clowns of the left. This maggot is now an “educator” at Cal Berkeley. Absolutely nothing more needs to be said.
The more I hear about the democrats and their action to fellow members they are not just being clannish but reflects the actions of a cult.
They delight in violence. If you dont do what they demand you get pushed around OR sent to a locked down location for not being vaccinated. Do you see where they are leading us?
A thought for you. Biden is flooding our states, illegally, with illegals. Pelosi is trying to ban voter IDs. Can you see where this is heading?
This is disgusting !!! To advocate and preach to physically harm anyone is just despicable !!!! If any harm comes to this woman, at least the first lead as to who did it we can point them toward the Democrats. Bullies and thugs , this should be illegal to threaten . If it had been a Republican who advocated this type behavior, the Rats would be crawling all over them, crying , bitching and moaning about the big bad Conservatives.
We will prevail. The right is going to rise up in a way that the left will have no chance to react. Get ready lefties and say your prayers. #letsroll
Call for violence Sinema should carry a gun to protect herself.
Let’s see 60 Minutes do a story on this.
Violence is the MO of the Left! Reich with the Napoleon Complex is not only a Democrat but a rabid Leftist who shouldn’t be allowed to pollute young people’s minds!
Its morons like Reich, who indoctrinate young people, these are the lefties from the 60’s when I grew up that have “perverted” views of what “freedom” is. These young people whose minds were being poisoned are the lefties of today. We must WAKE UP PEOPLE.
The Senator should avoid all D.C. parks or she will be found dead from apparent suicide.
He needs to be arrested for inciting violence on a sitting US Senator.
Kyrsten, just want you to know from regular American’s’ that you very much appreciated for standing
up for us and trying to do the right thing in spite of all the abuse you have been subject to. We would
vote for you across America if we could…your are an inspiration and a pillar for doing and following
your conscience ….doing the right thing for America!!! You will not be forgotten. Please continue to
follow what you know is right. Your party and some others are saying terrible things to you…but this
to shall pass and you will stand tall and proud looking out for us…thank god for you and Joe M. you
to our our only hope seems like. One day you can look back at this and be proud of what you did.
You may not see this post….hope you do, but people across the country are with you. You are a Giant.
Mad Maxie joined the call for violence, she accused Sinema of not caring about blacks. That’s rich coming from an unethical woman whose district is a slum while mad Maxie lives in a mansion outside of her district. Hypocrite much Maxie? Reich is pretty much the same, what has he done for his constituents?
