Progressives have been complaining about the security cost for First Lady Melania Trump’s stay in New York, but what they’re not discussing is the obscenely high cost of the security bill of the Secretary of Education.
Perhaps the reason they’re not talking about it is the fact that they are the cause.
After receiving wave after wave of death threats, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has now been accommodated with additional security measures costing somewhere in the neighborhood of $7.8M taxpayer dollars so far.
While attempting to visit a middle school in February, DeVos was accosted by a large group of progressive protesters who barred her entrance to the school. She was lead to a back entrance, surrounded by security.
In February, DeVos, a supporter of charter schools, was accosted by a group of progressive protesters who barred her entry to Jefferson Middle School Academy in D.C. The protesters carried signs reading “Black Lives Matter,” and “Feminists Are the Majority.” At least one screamed, “Shame!” at DeVos when the newly emplaced Ed Sec arrived at the school. The protesters prevented DeVos from entering the school’s front doors and she had to be let in through a back entrance, surrounded by security.
You don’t normally hear about the Secretary of Education, as it appears to be a very low-key position. Unfortunately, because Trump picked her, DeVos has accumulated an impressive number of death threats. Because of this, the U.S. Marshals were forced to hire additional security to deal with the elevated plans.
If liberals are going to cry about the cost that Trump is running up, then they are going to have to recognize that some of it is their fault.
There are fewer things more disgusting than sending a person a death threat, but sending them a death threat simply because you don’t agree with their politics? That’s right up with with psychopathy.
