Protesters Violently Dragged Out From Sessions Confirmation Hearing [VIDEO

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

A small group of protesters representing StopFascism.org were forcibly removed from the hearing to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions as the next Attorney General of the United States Tuesday morning.

Three protesters refused to leave when Capitol Police came to remove them for shouting “Jeff Sessions is a racist!” The protesters struggled with authorities, chanting “stop Trump, stop the KKK, stop the fascist USA.”

The group also chanted the name of a website, StopFascism.org, a website posted in Russian that warns against the dangers of “fascism” in Russia and the Ukraine. The word “fascism” came dangerously close to becoming the word of the year according to dictionary.com.
