Lawmakers Battle Protestors During Speeches

Sure, they may have been Democrats out of California...

But they're still America's elected leaders.

We wouldn't want conservatives to have to go through what Democrats Katie Porter and Adam Schiff just did, but did they deserve it simply for being lying Democrats?

Here are the facts, and you can decide for yourself.

Katie Porter and Adam Schiff were speaking at their party's endorsing convention when "a small number of non-delegate protesters circumvented venue security and disrupted the program."

It doesn't appear as though excessive force or extra law enforcement was required to eventually get them to leave, but does that make this okay?

Schiff and Porter were constantly interrupted during their speeches by pro-Palestinian protestors.

"Ceasefire now!" the protesters shouted while the representatives were speaking.

Porter tried to get the protestors to be quiet so that she could hit her points, but the protestors weren't incredibly fond of cooperating.

"I respect your opinions, and I have heard you," Porter said. "I'm going to ask you to allow me to please finish my remarks."

The demonstrators ignored her request. The two forum moderators asked for quiet as well and were also unsuccessful.

California Democratic Party Chairman Rusty Hicks then joined Porter onstage, telling the protestors that "every candidate in this race deserves to be heard."

"Give every candidate the opportunity to be heard before we go and make our voice heard at the ballot box," Hicks demanded.

Hicks released a full public statement after the protestors eventually peacefully went home, saying:

Free speech and freedom of expression are constitutionally protected rights that we uplift as California Democrats and every Convention participant has the right to be heard. This afternoon, we heard from four outstanding candidates for U.S. Senate. Unfortunately, a small number of non-Delegate protesters circumvented venue security and disrupted the program. They were heard and following a closing statement by the final candidate, the program was concluded and all attendees exited the venue. We look forward to the continuation of a successful Convention this afternoon with voting on endorsements, caucus meetings, and hospitality events.
