Brian Sims, Bigot For The Left

Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Brian Sims, a progressive bully (official portrait)

I’m a little bit late to this, but I’ve been traveling, and am getting caught up, and … this is insane!

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.

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?

UPDATE: The father of teenage girls protesting peacefully outside the clinic, and who are the targets of Brian Sims’s doxxing attempt, are inviting Go Fund Me donations to the Philly pro-life ministry he targeted. I have Catholic friends in Philly who know this ministry, and who know those targeted by Sims. They’re legit, I’m told. Here’s the Go Fund Me appeal, written by the father of those kids, who is also the husband of a woman targeted by Sims. Excerpt:

It’s bad enough that a grown man would be trying to dox three teenage girls.  It’s even worse that he is an elected official.  I’ve got two responses to these despicable actions by “Representative” Sims:

First, Brian, if you have a problem with my wife and daughters praying outside of an abortion clinic, I’m the one you can talk to… instead of harassing teenage girls.

It seems like you like to pick on women, teenagers, and senior citizens (see him harass a senior citizen who was praying by clicking here ).  That’s shameful, and unacceptable.

Second, I have a challenge for the pro-life community.  Rep. Sims offered $100 to anyone who would identify these teenage girls for him.  Instead of $100, let’s join together to donate $100,000 to the pro-life movement.

Please join me in making a donation today.  100% of your donations will go to the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia, which:

*Hosts prayer vigils and outreach campaigns outside Philadelphia’s abortion clinics (like the one in this video)

*Provides thousands of diapers, wipes, articles of clothing for babies, and resources to mothers in need

*Operates a home caring for pregnant mothers

*And so much more…

The money you donate goes directly into the Pro-Life Union’s account – none of it comes to / through me.  You can learn more about this important grassroots organization at http://www.prolifeunion.org
