More Than 200 'Resistance' Protesters Arrested During Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings

God bless the stupidity of the far left. In an effort to prove to America that the Democratic Party is actually the one that knows how to best govern, party leaders and protesters alike turned last week's Supreme Court confirmation hearings into a clown show resulting in fake news, theatrics, and more than 200 'resistance' left-wing protesters being arrested by Capitol police.

According to NPR, "At least 227 demonstrators were arrested between the start of the nomination hearings on Tuesday and the end of testimony on Friday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police. Most of those charged this week with disorderly conduct, crowding or obstructing paid fines of $35 or $50."

In fact, it took just two minutes into the hearings before a protester was kicked out for disruptions. But, according to Linda Sarsour, this was all part of their plan. 

"Disrupting the hearings was a way for us to go directly into the homes of the American people to say, 'We will not be silenced and you need to be as outraged as we are,'" Sarsour, a co-chair of the Women's March, told NPR. 

This is an interesting strategy because there is nothing that tells the American people the adults are in the room quite like Code Pink folks and washed up Occupy Wall Street rejects throwing temper tantrums on Capitol Hill. (sarcasm) 

It actually proved the opposite. Even Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) condemned the protests. "I think that the average independent voter — the labor family that voted for Trump last time but is now reconsidering — people like that don't think that screaming in a hearing room is a particularly effective strategy or a signal of a party that they much want to belong to," Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., told NPR's Audie Cornish. "So I think it's been not helpful to any cause that I can see."

The silliness of the left during Kavanaugh's hearing displayed, once again, that the progressives in the Democratic Party are asinine and willing to scream, and shout, and let it all out rather than communicate like adults if they do not get their way. But, as an added bonus, President Barack Obama decided to rev up his fall lecture series and remind conservatives how dismal of a president he really was. Hopefully, last week's actions by the left were enough to motivate the GOP base to mobilize the vote to retain the house and keep these jackwagons on the left out of power for as long as possible.
