In the wake of Joe Biden and Democrats' attempt to get rid of the filibuster, both Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema have stood against this. As a result, they have both come under attack from members of the democratic party and the media. One of the most chilling attacks came from a staff member at the ACLU, Sarah Michelsen, who urged individuals to keep up the pressure to “break” Sinema. The senator has been persistently harrassed by activists who even followed her into a bathroom to shout at her.
Michelsen took pleasure in seeing that Sinema seemed emotional in a speech in which she voiced her opposition to removing the filibuster. Michelsen encouraged activists to “keep going” with the attacks because they are “breaking her.”
ACLU which is the acronym for American Civil Liberties Union is a nonprofit organization founded in 1920 "to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States. However, many now believe the ACLU has changed dramatically in the last 10 years into another political arm for the Democratic party.
