Things got interesting on Saturday during MoveOn's "Big Ideas" forum at the California Democratic Party convention. A protestor with a press pass jumped on stage, walked up to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and took the microphone from her hand. 

In the clip, Harris' husband, Douglas Emhoff, can be seen jumping on stage, trying to pull the microphone out of the guy's hand.

According to a Boston Globe reporter, the man is an animal rights activist.

Naturally, the issue of race and gender came up.

Apparently the man is part of the Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) group. According to their website, the group is compromised of "a community of activists seeking total animal liberation through nonviolent direct action and open rescue."
