OPINION| Mark Sidney| What did you do this Valentine’s Day?
Did you sit in the street, block traffic at a major airport, likely cause people to miss their flights while you pouted?
If your name is Rashida Tlaib, the answer is yes.
This is not the first time the radical leftist Congresswoman has been detained by police.
Huffington Post reported back October 2018 ‘Rashida Tlaib, a Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, was arrested Tuesday in Detroit while participating in a pro-labor rally in support of union rights for all fast food workers.
Tlaib, who seeks to represent Michigan’s 13th congressional district, was one of at least 20 demonstrators arrested during the “Fight for 15” rally, which drew hundreds of striking fast food cooks and cashiers, as well as activists and elected leaders.
Police detained Tlaib and others after they refused to move from their seats at a table set up in the middle of a street, reported The Detroit News. They will be issued citations for a disorderly conduct misdemeanor and receive a court date, Detroit Police Deputy Chief Elvin Barren told the outlet.’
Here is a video of her arrest.
Now she is back at it, and apparently avoiding the consequences of her action because of her job as a United States Congresswoman.
The Gateway Pundit is reporting “Radical socialist Rashida Tlaib made news this weekend after she was detained by police for blocking traffic during a sit-in protest at the Detroit Airport.
The protests were organized in Detroit and Minneapolis to complain about low wages and a lack of health insurance benefits for the catering crews working for Delta Air Lines.
Democrat-Socialist Tlaib wants to put the catering crews out of work by making their employment unaffordable.
Rashida supports Bernie.
Tlaib was detained during the protest after she sat in a road with eight other protesters.
Rashida Tlaib was detained but not processed by police for blocking traffic at the airport — which is a security threat.’
CORRECTION: Rep. @RashidaTlaib was not processed as an arrest with the other protesting workers, but did participate in solidarity in the civil disobedience, including joining the protesters in the van as officers took them for processing.

Clearly this woman has no respect for the rule of law or the concept that actions have consequences. There are plenty of jobs out there, no one is holding a gun to their heads forcing them to take and keep these jobs.
Why let the market and human action dictate prices when you can use guerrilla warfare tactics?
This is the modern day left in a nutshell, they don’t negotiate, they throw tantrums and try to ruin everyone else’s day, regardless if they are in any way involved in their dispute, to get their way.
Congrats Democrats, you have gifted us a generation of children.
