I’m a little bit late to this, but I’ve been traveling, and am getting caught up, and … this is insane!
UPDATE: Watch PA Rep @BrianSimsPA offer up $100 for the identities & addresses of 3 TEENAGERS who are fighting for the lives of preborn children.
This is despicable. pic.twitter.com/96JC9b8jQB

Rep. Brian Sims is also a gay activist. If you watch the video, you will see that this loony is attacking the peaceable old woman in flatly racist terms, calling her an “old white lady.” And, he did worse; from the Philadelphia Inquirer’s report about the controversy he has caused:
In one video, Sims approaches a woman and three girls who appear to be in their teens outside the Planned Parenthood clinic at 12th and Locust Streets and refers to them as “pseudo-Christian protesters who’ve been out here shaming young girls for being here.”
“I’ve got $100 to anyone who will identify any of these three,” Sims says in the video, adding that he is raising money for Planned Parenthood.
The unidentified woman responds, “We’re actually here just praying for the babies.”
A grown man harassing and doxxing teenage girls engaged in peaceful protest. This is beyond outrageous.
Planned Parenthood protesters are scum! I’ve spent years as a patient escort witnessing firsthand the hate, vitriol, hostility and BLATANT RACISM they spew. You can “pray for a baby at home.” You sure as hell can feed a kid or clothe one instead. Old, fake, White, wrong! #BeReal

I’m old enough to remember when the entire national media was seized up with outrage over what a group of Catholic high school boys allegedly did to harass a Native American protester. (They were, of course, falsely accused.) But here we have a gay Democratic pro-choicer bullying an older woman silently praying the rosary outside an abortion clinic, and doxxing teenage girls.
Where is the national media on this story? Crickets. Nothing but damn crickets. The double standard is sickening … but not surprising, is it?
