Democratic politicians think they can get away with being awful and will never be called out on their terrible behavior. Unfortunately for them, the internet never forgets.
Suffolk County District Attorney Rollins was recently confirmed as the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts as one of President Joe Biden’s picks, Fox News reported. Shortly after, a video resurfaced of Rollins threatening and bullying a journalist.

The incident happened in January 2021 when a film crew from WFXT-TV showed up at Rollins’ residence to follow up on a complaint made against her by government employee Katie Lawson, the network reported. Rollins had allegedly confronted Lawson and threatened to write her citation after an incident in a parking lot — though she was not a police officer — and the network wanted to interview the district attorney for her side of the story.
However, when they showed up near her residence, Rollins became belligerent and immediately pulled race into the situation. “So as a Black woman, in this moment in this country, you’re going to put my f—ing house on screen?” Rollins badgered the reporter, though nobody was filming her house.
“No, no, no, ma’am, we’re just here approaching you to ask you a question,” the reporter replied. That enflamed Rollins further who made more hysterical accusations and threats.
“If I get hurt or harmed because of this, you are on the record for that, or my kids are f—ing killed,” Rollins accused. “And you know what I’ll do? I’ll call the police and make an allegation. And we’ll see how that works with you,” she threatened the reporters before turning again to the issue of race.
“So the rantings of a white woman get you here and scare my children?” she went on, though there’s no evidence that the accuser’s race was at all releveant. “Get off our private property, and I swear to God, I’m dead serious. I will find your name,” Rollins threatened.
Despite this volatile behavior and her penchant for pointing out race when it’s irrelevant, Vice President Kamala Harris cast the votes necessary for her confirmation. Rollins was also praised by “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
This incident shows Rollins in an awful light and frankly makes her seem unstable and hostile to white people. However, she is a Democrat and will always get a pass on her behavior from her fellow party members — but the internet will never forget.
