Activists followed Senator Krysten Sinema into the bathroom to press her on her reasons for not agreeing to the “Build Back Better” bill.
The activists confronted Sinema in a classroom at Arizona State University in Phoenix and then filmed and follow her walking into a public bathroom. Under Arizona law, filming someone in a bathroom without their consent is illegal. Protestors continued to ask Sinema to support President Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan, which Democrat progressives are pushing to include amnesty for illegal immigrants.
President Biden called the actions ‘inappropriate’. “I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody,” Biden said. “The only people it doesn’t happen to are the people who have Secret Service standing around them.”
In spite of the President’s condemnation, there was some support for these actions. The website Jezebel published a piece titled “Absolutely Bully Kyrsten Sinema Outside Of Her Bathroom Stall.” In the article, it called the scene an “effective and safe alternative” to enacting change.
“And for all the pearl-clutching, few are providing a more effective and safer alternative to what these activists did. They told Sinema, to her face and through a door that she was failing them and why. There was no violence, no rude language, nothing. Just a few constituents following their representative into a large bathroom to air their grievances. What should they have done instead?” it wrote.
The Young Turks condemned Sinema and supported the protestors in a segment featuring Rashad Richey and contributor Caroline Johnson. “Senator Kyrsten Sinema created this environment by refusing to connect or allow opportunity for dialogue with those that knocked on doors to get her elected,” Richey said. “I think that the articulation of these activists and really, the bravery and courage that that takes is something that should be celebrated across the nation,” Johnson followed.
