This weekend was a bellwether one for the Washington Capitals. They absolutely crushed the Tampa Bay Lightning twice on their own ice, 6-2 and 4-2. And I want to talk about something kind of similar today.
Not hockey, but someone who just can’t stop getting shelled right on their home turf, Delegate Alfonso Lopez (pictured right).
Over the weekend, Delegate Lopez was no doubt thinking that he had earned a reprieve from the constant barrage of legislative life. He attended what must have seemed like a softball event; an Arlington town hall hosted by the far-left group Indivisible at the Arlington Central Library.
“Surely,” he must have thought, “in a room like that, only slightly to the right of Vladimir Lenin, I can answer a couple of easy questions, bash the Republican majority, excuse my lousy legislative efficiency, and get home in time for dinner.”
Alfonso was wrong.
Midway through, a group of illegal immigration activists, calling themselves La ColectiVa burst in to the meeting to continue their campaign against Lopez by shouting down those asking and answering questions. Their main goal is to shame Lopez for work he did for the Immigration Centers of America, particularly a facility in Farmville, in his day job as a lawyer.
As you can see on the video, they then proceed to spread the peanut butter of their wrath all over the wonderbread that was the table of legislators before them. Enter the friendliest policeman I have ever encountered. He politely makes his presence known, offers to leave, and points out where he will be if anyone needs him to a chorus of admonitions by the illegal immigration activists, who, in a fit of irony, are yelling at him asking why he was called.
The entire scene is really a caricature, and shows in sharp detail the cannibalistic nature of the far-left progressive movement. It’s a race to the Left, then a race to the bottom.
