Left-Wing Mob Descends on DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen at Her Virginia Home

Three days after a left-wing mob hounded Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a D.C. Mexican restaurant, another group of far-left agitators has harassed her outside her Virginia townhouse.

Early Friday morning, according to the Washington Times, about two dozen protesters from the Soros-linked group CREDO Action held up signs outside the embattled DHS secretary’s home that read “child snatcher,” chanting “no justice, no sleep” and blaring an audio clip of crying immigrant children.

Ms. Nielsen was forced to walk by protesters shouting “Shame!” when she left her house, according to video posted on social media. One man shouted, “You belong in the Hague!” and, “You’re a modern-day Nazi!” as Ms. Nielsen entered her vehicle and left.

Heidi Hess, the co-director of CREDO Action, called Nielsen a “child snatcher” and argued that it’s important to expose the decision-makers in the Trump administration.

“There’s a child snatcher living in Alexandria, Virginia,” Ms. Hess said in a statement. “Rightfully so, there’s a huge amount of attention focused on the border and the detention centers but the people who are making the decisions are here in DC, so it’s important to shine a spotlight on them as well.”

U.S. Secret Service officers and other law enforcement personnel were at the scene during the protest, which lasted about an hour, Fox5 DC reported.

CREDO Action is an organizing front for “America’s only progressive mobile phone company,” CredoMobile, which is based out of San Francisco.

The Washington Free Beacon reported in 2012 that CREDO cofounder Michael Kieschnick was a staff member of the Secretary of State Project, a liberal campaign launched by George Soros in 2006 to elect progressive secretaries of state to oversee elections.

Kieschnick is also a member of the Democracy Alliance, the secretive network of progressive donors organized by George Soros that funnels millions to left-wing groups.

In its 2012 report, WFB reported that CredoMobile has donated close to $75 million to liberal causes since 1985. CREDO Action launched a campaign in 2012 to take out eleven tea party members of Congress. The wireless reseller “donates part of its profits to left-wing groups such as the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America, ACORN-affiliated Project Vote, Color of Change, Oxfam, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, Planned Parenthood, and the Sierra Club Foundation,” Capital Research Center reported.

The Credo super PAC reportedly paid $50,417 to Strategic Consulting Group, which is run by Robert Creamer, the Alinskyite organizer and former jailbird who visited the Obama White House 340 times. In 2016 Creamer’s group, Democracy Partners, organized violent left-wing agitators to incite bloody political violence at Donald Trump rallies.
