The politics of aggressively confronting conservative lawmakers quietly having dinner with family and friends has apparently morphed into politicians attacking conservative citizens.
In fact, Pennsylvania State Representative, Brian Sims, has faced backlash from a video he made where he tapped himself attacking pro-life supporters quietly standing outside Planned Parenthood.
What is especially concerning is Sims bizarre belief that he can actually videotape and offer a “bounty” of $100 dollars to anyone revealing the identities of pro-life supporters — including an elderly woman and several young teens standing in front of the facility counseling woman — and not be held accountable for his actions.
The self made video captures Sims running across the street demanding the identities of 3-young female teens walking away from the unhinged Democratic legislator.
The bearded lawmaker is heard on the video stating, “What we’ve got here is a bunch of … pseudo-Christian protesters who’ve been out here shaming young girls for being here.”
Adding, “So, here’s the deal, I’ve got $100 to anybody who will identify these three, and I will donate to Planned Parenthood.”
Sims then turns his attention to a lone pro-life demonstrator standing quietly and praying, and begins to harass and intimidate the young man demanding his name and where he lives asking, “What makes you think it’s your job to tell women what to do with their bodies?” Scowls the angry lawmaker.
The bemused protester perhaps intimidated by Sims appearance, voluntarily gives the information, before Sims storms off verbally denouncing the protester stating “The truth is I’m not really asking because I don’t care, shame on you!”
In another graphic incident Rep. Sims repeatedly harasses and bullies an elderly pro-life woman standing outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Sims southeastern Pennsylvania district, vilifying the woman as a “racist” which ironically Planned Parenthood often targets within their promotions woman of color.
Sims video’s have apparently caught the attention of conservative writer Matt Walsh, especially the one of Sims offering a “bounty” for the identity (including addresses), of the 3-young teenage girls, posting out on social media if anyone was up for a pro-life rally in Rep. Brian Sims district.
“This coward is accosting women and children at this clinic in Center City. Let’s organize a huge pro life rally at this location. I’d be happy to drive up there. Who’s game? Let’s see if Brian is man enough to show up when there’s more than just kids and elderly women there.”

Life News a conservative publication has also started a petition calling for Sims resignation stating; “Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims repeatedly bullied the pro-life woman in an unhinged rant as she stood alone outside a Planned Parenthood in his district in southeastern Pennsylvania. Sims called the woman a “racist” and her sidewalk counseling “grotesque.”
Adding, “He followed her around, hurling insults at her; and at one point, he got in her face with his camera and ignored her requests to leave her alone.”
Also joining the chorus of growing individuals asking for Sims head is Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio, stating for the record; “State Rep. Brian Sims’ harassment of a woman’s peaceful and religious exercise of her First Amendment rights is yet another example of a troubling trend of growing extremism and hypocrisy among Democrats. People are entitled to exercise their First Amendment rights and should be free from intimidation and harassment, even when their views makes left wing Democrats like Rep. Sims uncomfortable.”
Adding, “We need elected officials who work to solve the problems of Pennsylvania families – not those who like Rep. Brian Sims, Rep. Danielle Friel Otten, and others continue to use identity politics to divide.”
“Having met Rep. Sims, I am surprised at this episode of despicable conduct. Given the nature of his conduct, he owes an apology not just to the woman he harassed, but to the people of Pennsylvania that expect more out of their elected officials.”
