God bless the stupidity of the far left. In an effort to prove to America that the Democratic Party is actually the one that knows how to best govern, party leaders and protesters alike turned last week's Supreme Court confirmation hearings into a clown show resulting in fake news , theatrics , and more than 200 'resistance' left-wing protesters being arrested by Capitol police.
According to NPR , "At least 227 demonstrators were arrested between the start of the nomination hearings on Tuesday and the end of testimony on Friday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police. Most of those charged this week with disorderly conduct, crowding or obstructing paid fines of $35 or $50."
In fact, it took just two minutes into the hearings before a protester was kicked out for disruptions. But, according to Linda Sarsour, this was all part of their plan.
"Disrupting the hearings was a way for us to go directly into the homes of the American people to say, 'We will not be silenced and you need to be as outraged as we are,'" Sarsour, a co-chair of the Women's March, told NPR.
This is an interesting strategy because there is nothing that tells the American people the adults are in the room quite like Code Pink folks and washed up Occupy Wall Street rejects throwing temper tantrums on Capitol Hill. (sarcasm)
It actually proved the opposite. Even Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) condemned the protests. "I think that the average independent voter the labor family that voted for Trump last time but is now reconsidering people like that don't think that screaming in a hearing room is a particularly effective strategy or a signal of a party that they much want to belong to," Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., told NPR's Audie Cornish. "So I think it's been not helpful to any cause that I can see."
The silliness of the left during Kavanaugh's hearing displayed, once again, that the progressives in the Democratic Party are asinine and willing to scream, and shout, and let it all out rather than communicate like adults if they do not get their way. But, as an added bonus, President Barack Obama decided to rev up his fall lecture series and remind conservatives how dismal of a president he really was. Hopefully, last week's actions by the left were enough to motivate the GOP base to mobilize the vote to retain the house and keep these jackwagons on the left out of power for as long as possible.
Let no liberal speak of civility ever again!
I know an older conservative, Hispanic, woman.
She gets all her news from the TV. She is convinced Trump is out to get the rich richer, the U.S. is in terrible shape, and President Trump has horrible morality problems.
She is also convinced President Trump hates Hispanics and women of color.
I’d bet the Dems paid everyone’s fines also. The fines should be huge, with mandatory jail time.
What’s conservative about her? Is she Pro-Life, maybe?
Otherwise, she sounds like everybody’s typical Democrat neighbor and Hillary voter.
.... Being a so called “Social Justice Warrior” is actually considered a profession these days in the new untamed frontier of snowflakery. These people were more than likely doing this to enhance their idiotic vapid resume’s to advance their new minimum wage “Careers” which will lead them straight to the wonderful world of Government Assisted Welfare.
How much did Soros pay them?
They shouldn’t even be there. Broadcast the hearings on closed circuit to some other room. “Clear the courtroom”
I’m sure the RATs did. It’s a shame they don’t get jail sentences of even a week or ten days, I doubt they’d come back for seconds.
If you google image search "Kavanaugh protestors" it is one unhinged lunatic after the next, red-faced with rage getting tossed out.
I wish I could find one photo that popped up on my Twitter feed of a tranny with fake menstrual blood all over his crotch getting hauled out by security. That was lovely.
Think it's bad now, wait until RBG croaks!
With luck, Trump has already found her replacement.
I'd like to see that.
Each protestor is a useful idiots: useful to leftists, socialists, communists...your typical democrats.
Make it $250.00 first offense double it each time for each offense after the first.
Make it a felony to pay a fine for someone else (other than spouse or child under 18)
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Please tell you ‘conservative’ friend that the rich ALWAYS get richer, regardless of who occupies the Oval Office.
The key is creating the environment to where the poor get richer and so does the middle class.
President Trump is creating such an environment.
No offense to her, but she has a ways to go before earning her conservative stripes.
Do they get paid more if they get arrested?
LOL! That’s funny, may be Buzzy’s granddaughter.
‘We will not be silenced and you need to be as outraged as we are,’” >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
That’s the trouble with Liberal Fascists, the want their way or else!They sought to destroy the process of a duly elected government by creating a pseudo event for propaganda purposes.
The Senators who organized this are frustrated because they lost the election, and refuse to participate according to the Constitution and the Senate’s rules, after having taken a Senators oath to do both.
This is offensive to a duly elected , duly convened governmental committee which had a task to perform according to their duty.The Democrat Senators ignored that duty because they want to be assured the appointee would legislate from the SCOTUS bench.He refused.
As a result Americans have turned to those who govern with regular order and civility.They will not vote Democrat anytime soon after witnessing this circus.
5 thousand dollar fine and they jerk your passport - minimum
If by huge you mean in the middle to high three digits, I will agree. Minimum jail time of 5 days, second offense: 30 days. As it is, these protesters will wear tee shirts bragging about the $50 fine they paid to defeat Kavanaugh.
This is not a disorderly conduct, crowding or obstructing beef outside of Joes Bar & Grill at closing. These citizens are interfering with, and interrupting and delaying the very machine of our government while it attempts to conduct extraordinary business. What would the exposure be if they delayed a naval vessel about to sail on a combat mission?
These people have a forum for their displeasure but it is not at these proceedings.
