Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) encouraged Americans this week to “take matters into your own hands” and remove protesters who are blocking roads.

Cotton’s remarks come as far-left pro-Palestinian protesters blocked roads across the country on Monday to protest Israel, which just endured an attack from Iran over the weekend.

The most notable examples of anti-Semitic protesters blocking roads included Interstate 190 leading into O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Manhattan-bound traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York.

Other examples included protesters shutting down Interstate 5 in Oregon, roads in Philadelphia, and the main road that leads to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

“I encourage people who get stuck behind the pro-Hamas mobs blocking traffic: take matters into your own hands to get them out of the way,” Cotton posted on X. “It’s time to put an end to this nonsense.”

The protests were reportedly organized by the far-left extremist group A15 Action, which called for roads to be blocked in cities around the world to show “solidarity with Palestine” as Israel eliminates Hamas terrorists inside Gaza.


“In each city, we will identify and blockade major choke points in the economy, focusing on points of production and circulation with the aim of causing the most economic impact,” the group said on its website. “There is a sense in the streets in this recent and unprecedented movement for Palestine that escalation has become necessary: there is a need to shift from symbolic actions to those that cause pain to the economy.”

The extremist group also lamented on its website that coalition forces were bombing Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists in Yemen.
