Gee, who could’ve seen this coming?
20 leftist radicals were arrested today in the US House after they harassed Republican lawmakers and disrupted procedures.
Far left members of National People’s Action took credit for the disruption.
They’re outraged that they won’t be getting more of your money.
The Washington Post reported:
More than 20 protesters were arrested Monday afternoon after causing a disruption in the House gallery as lawmakers debated the debt-reduction deal negotiated by the White House and congressional leaders.
Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said 22 protesters were arrested and charged with disruption of Congress.
The protesters, who were sitting in one of the visitors’ galleries overlooking the Republican side of the chamber, unfurled a large black banner and began chanting against the debt-limit compromise.
They chanted several slogans, including: “Boehner, get off it; it’s time to tax corporate profits.” It appeared that after one officer tried to yank the banner from the group, a protester either took a tumble or dove over the row of seats in front.
The protesters could be heard chanting even after they were brought into the hallway outside the gallery. According to reports by CNN and the Hill, the protest included members of the groups Vocal New York and National People’s Action.
The only surprising thing about this rally is that Code Pink did not take part in it.
