Marsha Blackburn Says 'Liberal Mob' Ruined Moment of Silence for Pittsburgh Victims

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked for a moment of silence for the 11 victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting at her Senate campaign rally on Sunday, only to be interrupted by a "liberal mob."

As Blackburn began the moment of silence, one Blackburn critic screamed, "Marsha Blackburn is a white supremacist!"

As usual whenever there is a large room full of conservatives, the liberal activist's words were drowned out by chants of “USA! USA!” 

The loud, female activist appeared to be one of several protesters removed from the rally. Some were removed quite forcibly.

Blackburn described the protesters' behavior as “despicable” and accused them of being part of “the liberal angry mob.” 

"We know they were yelling 'Impeach Trump' among other things," she said after the event. "I have never in my life heard of people interrupting a moment of silence...I think that's despicable."

She elaborated in an official statement.

Blackburn accused the activists of appearing at her rally under the influence of her opponent, former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen. His campaign denied the allegation.

“It a shame that people disrupted Congresswoman Blackburn’s event and it is a shame that Congresswoman Blackburn’s campaign staffers have been proudly screaming at 37 of Governor Bredesen’s events," said Alyssa Hansen, Bredesen's campaign spokeswoman. "This is not what this election is about and it is time to get back to bringing attention to fixing problems for the people of Tennessee.” 

Sen. Lindsey Graham 2.0 (R-SC), who was also a speaker at this weekend's rally, also used the word "mob" to describe the chaos.

“All the people who want to yell at me would turn the country into a mob,” he said.
