Republican congress members are knocking a Democratic state representative after he posted videos of himself “proudly” harassing people outside of Planned Parenthood.
In a video that went viral this week, Sims videotaped an “old, white lady who’s going to try to avoid showing you her face” while he harassed her by asking questions and trying to get her face on camera.
Due to her Christian beliefs on abortion and her actions of praying, he called her “extremely racist.”
In case you missed it, watch the video below:
Republican lawmakers aren’t having it with the Democrat’s harassment as House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) tore into Sims for showing “how low the left will go to bully, demonize, and taunt those they disagree with.”
“This is harassment, and this man is a coward,” Scalise declared.
This wasn’t Sims’ only incident of harassing people — as Live Action posted in an update, Sims approached three teenagers and a few other people who were also praying outside of the Planned Parenthood location and offered $100 to dox them.
“There’s nothing Christian about what you’re doing,” Sims told the women.

“This elected official just bullied teenaged girls and proudly put it on Twitter for all to see,” Scalise tweeted in response. “Where is the left condemning it?”

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) also slammed Sims for his “tasteless behavior … as he demonstrates how tough he is while mercilessly berating a quiet elderly woman for over 8 minutes.”

“Bring it, Bible Bullies!” Sims tweeted in response to the viral videos of himself. “You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values.”
Crenshaw offered advice to men based on this: “Great example to show young boys how NOT to act.”
