After perpetual badgering by a left-wing activist, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had a two word response that apparently sent chills down her spine – Be nice.
“Be nice, don’t be rude,” Zinke said as activist Cassandra Begay followed him around shouting questions.
Begay smiled and said “Oh okay,” when Zinke addressed her, but later took to social media to claim that she was “scared” over his “aggressive” actions.
Via the Daily Caller:
Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke told an American Indian activist to “be nice” after she badgered him about not meeting enough with tribal leaders about the Bears Ears National Monument.
“Be nice, don’t be rude,” Zinke said, confronting activist Cassandra Begay outside the Bears Ears monument in Utah.
“Oh, ok,” Begay said to the camera before she began yelling after Zinke again.
The activist group PANDOS claimed the video shows Zinke acting “aggressively.” After the incident, Begay said she felt “scared” when Zinke approached her.
“Holy crap!” she fretted on Facebook. “I thought Zinke was going to violently attack me at Bears Ears!”
And here was the snowflake’s reaction to a potential ‘violent attack.’
She looks thoroughly petrified, does she not?
Zinke was visiting Bears Ears National Monument as part of an ordered review of national monuments by President Trump. Former president Obama declared Bears Ears a 1.35 million-acre monument, something a Utah delegation of representatives declared jointly, an “unprecedented land grab.”
“I was scared, and my heart was racing,” Begay recalled. “It felt condescending and unnecessarily aggressive. I have no idea why asking a simple question to somebody who is on a listening tour would react so aggressively.”
“It felt like he was about to snap!” she added.
Environmental activists apparently have a very different definition of ‘aggressive,’ ‘violent,’ and ‘about to snap’ than the average … bear.
