Reich Tells Democrat Senators to Give Kyrsten Sinema ‘the Backs of Their Hands’

After the Democrat voting legislation was shot down in the U.S. Senate Wednesday night, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich took to Twitter to encourage Democrat senators to give obstructionist Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema “the backs of their hands.”

“Tonight, Republican senators lined up to shake Kyrsten Sinema’s hand,” Reich tweeted. “Democratic senators should have given her the backs of their hands.”

Had a Republican politico tweeted this call for violence, the shrieking outrage from the left would have been deafening. But they never scold their own, especially since his violent misogyny was directed at a Democrat woman who did not fall in line with the radical left’s agenda. So instead, it was the leftist media silence that was deafening.

More independent-minded figures called Reich out for his message, however. Journalist Glenn Greenwald — no right-winger but a journalist courageous enough to criticize far-left lunacy — responded on Twitter, “What are Democrats supposed to do to Sen. Sinema with ‘the backs of their hands’, @RBReich?”

“Feminists sure got quiet on this one,” tweeted conservative Stephen L. Miller.

Reich is a prime example of the fact that just under their facade of tolerance, compassion, and inclusiveness, the left is full of violent hatred for their political opponents, and that includes fellow Democrats who vote from their conscience instead of a lust for power.

A former Secretary of Labor during the first term of President Bill Clinton, Robert Reich is currently the University Professor and Maurice B. Hexter Professor of Social and Economic Policy at Brandeis University. In 2001, Brandeis named Reich to co-direct an undergraduate program for “Social Justice and Policy” at the university’s Heller Graduate School. In announcing the new program, the university touted its devotion to the “problems of social equity” and its commitment to exploring the connection between “social values and practical policies.”

To this founding vision Reich has stayed true. With its focus on “the gap between richer and poorer citizens,” and its declared intention to determine what can be “done to reverse this trend,” the undergraduate course Reich teaches seems modeled more on a policy think tank that is bent on fashioning a political agenda, than on a university curriculum concerned with the pursuit of knowledge. Even the course’s title, “Wealth and Poverty,” hints at its political tilt, echoing as it does the zero-sum certitudes of leftist strategists like Reich, who perceive economic issues as a pitched Darwinian battle between rich and poor.
