The Democrats refuse to rein in the Code Pinko thugs and vandals who continue to disrupt hearings on Capitol Hill. Earlier today, it was an unhinged protester who attempted to smear red paint on Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
The NYPost has the video and a report:
An anti-war protestor, whose hands were painted red to look like blood, stormed up to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as she arrived to testify on Capitol Hill this morning, shouting “war criminal” before being hauled away by bodyguards…The demonstrator was easily within arms distance when she accosted Rice who remained calm as bodyguards jumped on the intruder.
There was a brief struggle between other members of the anti-war group “Code Pink” who were tossed out of the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing room by Capitol Police.
“Out!,” shouted the chairman of the Foreign Relations committee, Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Cal.) to the protestor who also demanded the removal of several other Code Pink members, a group that often disrupts hearings on Capitol Hill.
One of these days, these people will really cross the line. And their allies in the Democrat Party will not be able to weasel out of their responsibility for providing them moral and political support and cover.
