A video of a girl in jeans shorts dancing around an elderly man who is peacefully protesting in front of the Supreme Court went viral over the weekend.
The video was shot during protests in front of the high court after the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and shows the girl trying to knock two signs out of the man’s hands. The signs read “She is a good liar” and “Arm teachers, protect kids.” During the brief video, the girl is also shouting “Hey hey, ho ho, Kavanaugh has got to go!” in his face.
Actor James Woods was among the many to highlight the video as a valuable insight into the mind of a liberal.

Outrage ensued on Twitter.
Wouldn’t that be considered assault and obstruction of the first amendment? Reverse the tables there would headlines about the racist violent right!

It's a shame no one respects elders anymore. In a functional democracy, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and if you don't like that, just vote. There is no need for violence and verbal abuse.

Typical response, preach dialogue but resort to taunting and violence when you don't submit to their thinking. This is why many people will turn away from the looney left!

The day is coming when we the people are going to have enough of that crap. I suggest law enforcement step in now.

And that’s exactly what happened, according to a photo posted by Ruptly. The girl is shown from the back with her hands zip-tied behind her, although it is unclear if she was arrested or simply handcuffed and removed from the site. Capitol Police said officers arrested 164 people on Saturday as hundreds of protesters hopped barricades to protest at the Capitol. Dozens more protested on the steps of the Supreme Court, where the incident took place.
Well deserved! Didn't she ever learn about respect. There was absolutely no reason for her to do that to that elderly gentleman, he was peacefully protesting. Sad!
