Code Pink Activists Who Disrupted Jeff Sessions Hearing Just Got Hit With Consequences
The confirmation hearings for Attorney General Jeff Sessions were contentious, with Democratic opponents accusing him of being racist and unfit for the job.
Three Code Pink activists took their dissent even further, disrupting the hearings earlier this year, according to The Hill, and months later they’re facing the consequences.
The predominantly female Code Pink describes itself as a "grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S.-funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect our resources into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities."
Somehow in all that wording, they made room for protesting Sessions, dressing in their trademark bright pink colors and holding protest signs inside the Capitol hearing room.
Two men even dressed as Klu Klux Klan members, one of them shouting, “You can’t arrest me; I’m white! White people don’t get arrested!” as the security officers proved him wrong by dragging him out of the room.
According to The Hill, Code Pink activist Desiree Fairooz was thrown out, too, when she laughed loudly at something she disagreed with during the hearing.
But what the article doesn’t mention is how disruptive the Code Pink activists were, as seen in this video:
