Schuylkill Leadership in Harrisburg Silent on Rep. Brian Sims Planned Parenthood Videos

brian sims video

Two videos surfaced recently of Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Sims berating pro-life protesters outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Philadelphia.

Sims posted the latest video on Twitter’s seldom-used live-video streaming service called Periscope. In them, he loudly shouts at protesters. In the latest, it’s just one woman. He identifies her as an “old white lady” and follows her back-and-forth on the sidewalk outside the clinic.

For the record, Sims is white. And what he chastises the woman for doing in this video, he does himself.

He’s been in office since 2012 and just won re-election in 2018. He’s openly gay — and will let you know every chance he gets — and very vocal pushing the far left agenda.

Your people in Harrisburg are apparently OK with this. Like many others in the state House and Senate, Schuylkill County’s representation stayed silent on this topic.

Brian Sims Racist Planned Parenthood Video

The video starts on a screen with the following message: “Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE! They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition.”

Of course, the far left says that about everyone, not just Planned Parenthood protesters and pro-life advocates.

Here’s the video:

In it, Sims claims to have a Constitutional right to shove his phone in the woman’s face and berate her. He says it’s the same as her right to protest outside the Planned Parenthood clinic.

“You’re allowed to be out here but that doesn’t mean you have a MORAL right to be out here,” Sims tells the woman.  He then panders to two police officers walking in front of his camera just passing by.

“How many children have you fed today,” he asks her for some reason. “How many children have you clothed?”

“An old white lady telling people what’s right to do with their bodies,” he carries on. “Shame on you! Shame! Don’t convince yourself that what you’re doing isn’t extremely racist.”

Now, he may be talking about his Constitutional right to protest but that’s supposed to mean a peaceful protest. That’s hardly what’s happening in this video. Sims resorts to racism (though he claims this woman is racist, somehow) by calling the woman “white” throughout the video.

Sims Threatens Doxxing Teen Girls

This latest video has Sims pleading with viewers to donate $100 to Planned Parenthood for every hour the woman stands outside the clinic. That’s nothing compared to what he did in a previous video he posted from outside the same Planned Parenthood.

Check that out here:

In this one, he confronts four younger women. He also identifies them as white. One of them immediately and hilariously told him, “I’m far from white.”

Sims though, offers to donate $100 on behalf of anyone who can identify the people in the video. This is a dangerous online trend known as doxxing.

Three of the people appear to be teen girls. Another person he confronts actually tells him his identification.

Sims is too breathless in each video to be paying attention. He’s obviously very proud of himself for what he’s doing and he clearly hopes everyone congratulates him for his so-called bravery.

Sims and His White Guilt

The state Representative is also very ashamed to be “a white person” as he likes to identify everyone he meets by the color of their skin. Isn’t that REALLY racist?

He lectured “white people” while shaming the woman in the latest video:

“If you’re a white person like I am, we have a lot of catching up to do. We have a lot of apologizing to do. And I’m going to start by apologizing for this woman.”

The “Apology”

Later in the week, Sims took to social media to post an update. Some in the media give him a pass and call it an apology video. He actually never says the word sorry in it. His line of “I can do better” can be taken six ways from Sunday. He thinks he’s doing the right thing in the end, so does that mean more doxxing videos?

We’re not posting that nonsensical video because it’s hardly an apology. In it, he spends more time talking about himself than he does addressing the videos.

Conduct Becoming a State Representative?

There are a thousand things wrong with what Sims is doing in these videos.

Yes, everyone has a right to protest. People are free to be pro-life and pro-choice and our great country allows for civil protests supporting those claims.

What Sims is doing is far from civil.

And this wouldn’t be much of a story if Sims were some random jackass with an iPhone shoving it in protesters’ faces. In case you missed it above, this is a sitting state Representative.

Schuylkill County’s Contingent in the Capital City Silent

Coal Region Canary reached out to three of Sims’ colleagues in the state House chamber: Reps. Jerry Knowles, Mike Tobash, and Neal Goodman. We wanted to know if they were OK with their co-worker acting like this and threatening private citizens’ safety.

Their response? Crickets.

We’ve gotten nothing back from any of those three. And they’ve posted nothing about it on their social media pages or websites.

State Sen. Dave Argall did chime in this week. But instead of taking a stand, he posted more of a public survey on his Facebook page.

In fact, some readers suspected his poll question — posted on his actual website — was just a means of collecting emails for his newsletter.

Argall hasn’t released the results of his poll but that didn’t stop some from responding to his Facebook post.

But that’s nothing more than what we just did here — opening another online channel for people to discuss this topic.

Rather than ask us our opinion of someone in the state House, they need to tell us that they know this is wrong.
