A group of left-wing activists attempted to intimidate Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi while she tried to enjoy a night at the movie theater in Tampa Bay.
Bondi reportedly had to be escorted out of the theater by law enforcement as the activists got in her face and shouted her down.
"Shame on you!" one woman is heard shouting after accusing Bondi of taking away people's health care.
"You're a horrible person!" another person is heard screaming.
However, a spokesperson for Bondi, Whitney Ray, told the Tampa Bay Times that the attack went farther than just words.
"The video they are choosing to share is of the least aggressive portion of the attack that transpired after police arrived to control the scene. What they are not sharing publicly are several previous encounters involving large men getting in the Attorney General's face, spitting and blocking her exit," Ray said.
Ironically, Bondi was seeing a film about Mr. Rogers titled, “Won't You Be My Neighbor.” The Florida attorney general said in an interview there is a lesson to be learned from Mr. Rogers.
"We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences," Bondi said. “We all believe in free speech, but there's a big difference there."
The harassment of Bondi comes after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on her left-wing supporters to attack Trump administration officials in public.
"If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.
The concern now is whether the heated rhetoric will get out of control and ultimately result in violence.
