Democratic senators were not the only faction acting like children during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. According to Politico, almost two dozen protesters (mostly feminists) were arrested.
“Capitol Hill police say they arrested almost two dozen protesters who disrupted Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing on Tuesday,” reports Politico. “The demonstrators were initially charged with disorderly conduct.”
Most of the unruly protesters were women, many of whom were lamenting that Kavanaugh would take away abortion rights or outlaw homosexuality along with the thousands of Chicken Little declarations that have hijacked this SCOTUS nomination.
The Women’s March also promised to disrupt the Kavanaugh hearings “every few minutes,” boasting that they have “hundreds of women” ready to get arrested for the cause.
“Beginning September 4th, a coalition of 20 women’s organizations will gather in Washington, D.C. to look our Senators in the eye and remind them that women across America are watching,” the group said in a statement. “We’re picking up where the fierce women who came before us left off.”
