When one protester attempted to inject their pro-China sentiments into the conversation during a Republican Congressional hearing, they were doubtless expecting some reaction from the panel – but certainly not this. The moment quickly became viral after the Chairman of the House Committee stepped in and unleashed a savage and humiliating comment that the leftist protester will remember the rest of his life.
On Tuesday night, two protestors briefly interrupted the first hearing of a new congressional select committee focused on China, during which witnesses discussed the challenges the Chinese Communist Party poses to the U.S.
During his speech about the importance of the Select Committee on Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party, former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster was interrupted by a woman yelling and holding a sign that read, “China is not our enemy.”
McMaster continued, but was interrupted almost immediately by a man who had also been strategically seated behind the witness panel, standing up with a sign and shouting about “saber rattling.”
This man was immediately confronted by the committee’s chairman, Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wisc. ), who told him that his sign was upside down. When the man turned his sign right side up, it said “Stop Asian Hate” – before being led out.
Before resuming his testimony, McMaster commented that the interruptions had “reinforced to some degree what you might call a bit of a curriculum of self-loathing that has taken hold in academia for many years.
In a statement, CODEPINK – a left wing organization advocating for peace and social justice – said the pair acted on its behalf.
Alliance for American Manufacturing president Scott Paul, who was also on the witness panel, had another observation about the demonstrators.
The first protestor at least attempted to make her point that “China is not our enemy” but was hilariously forgotten about when the second protestor pulled out his upside-down sign, sparking mockery from Rep. Gallagher who promptly told him that his sign was indeed upside down. The liberal nonsense surrounding China and their alleged non threatening nature toward the U.S. is getting out of hand, and it was refreshing to see these two crazies removed immediately from the important hearing.
