Kavanaugh Sworn In As Lunatics Pound On The SCOTUS Doors (Video)

Protesters opposed to the Brett Kavanaugh appointment to the US Supreme Court swarmed over Washington massing at the Capitol, disrupting the confirmation vote in the Senate and banging on the Supreme Court building doors while Kavanaugh arrived to be sworn in.

President Trump said you don’t give power to an angry mob. That is precisely what the Democrats have become.

Why are these scumbags allowed to ‘pound on the SCOTUS doors’? Are the police going to allow them to burn the place down too so they can protest?

About 5:45 p.m. ET Saturday, a large crowd of protesters surged onto the front steps of the Supreme Court, chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, Kavanaugh has got to go.”

After police pushed them back from the doors, the demonstrators held signs and chanted, “No justice, no peace,” and “We believe Anita Hill,” a reference to the woman who accused Justice Clarence Thomas of misconduct.

It’s not known if Kavanaugh heard the protesters. Police cleared the steps of the court about 6:15 p.m. and set up barriers.

Earlier, Capitol Police said 14 people were arrested for protests in the Senate Gallery, 13 during the successful vote to confirm Kavanaugh and one a short time earlier.

Protesters stood one by one in different sections of the gallery, most with their fists raised, and yelled “I will not consent.”

“The sergeant-at-arms will restore order in the gallery,” the presiding officer, Vice President Mike Pence, said several times.

Police forcibly removed the protesters, with one person dragged out by their arms and legs. They kept screaming as they were pulled into the hallway.

Crowds started forming around 9 a.m. ET outside the Capitol building and the Supreme Court building and grew through the morning.

Protesters occupied the Rotunda Steps on the East Front of the US Capitol early Saturday afternoon, with about 150 of them being arrested, Capitol Police said in a news release. Video showed them lined up, with wrists cuffed behind their backs on the Capitol lawn. Police cleared the steps and the Capitol Plaza, and the protesters headed back to the Supreme Court.

All the protesters taken into custody Saturday were charged with a violation of the Washington code against crowding, obstructing or incommoding. They were processed off-site. More
