RUSH: We have an update on the left wing radical who tried to climb the Statue of Liberty on the 4th of July.
You remember last Thursday Therese Patricia Okoumou was formally charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct, interference with government agency functions, and resisting arrest. After all that, she was cheered outside the courtroom.
Now, her stunt shut down the Statue of Liberty on Independence Day. She and her group, “Rise and Resist,” were protesting our nation’s immigration policies. So she put law enforcement lives at risk, as well as her own, and caused a major disruption to those visiting the Statue.
For all of that, not one apology. The left is treating her like a hero.
Ms. Okoumou is a naturalized citizen, who legally immigrated from the Republic of Congo. America opened her arms in welcome; in return, we get protests, not appreciation.
Now, if an ex-American protested the government in the Congo, what do you think would happen? Let me assure you there would be no hero treatment. You probably wouldn’t be able to find the protester afterwards and she certainly wouldn’t be allowed to come home.
