She was being deliberately disruptive, and deserves what she gets. One cannot simply behave badly like that, at such an event, with no consequences. What she did is not lawful protest.


You seem to be forgetting that laws dont apply to people on the left. Its like the book Animal Farm - Everyone is created equally, but some are more equal than others.

If people on the right behaved in the same manner as Maxine Waters is doing the term racist would be used every other word by the left.

How Trump refusing to accept the outcome of the election is dangerous to our "democracy" (Republic) while its not dangerous to it when Clinton throws a temper tantrum is further proof of how out of touch Democrats have become. They have become the part of Elites and yet somehow cant figure out why they keep losing elections.


Well stated!! It's astounding that they can't even seem to see their own double standards! The whole, "Do as I say not as I do" attitude is getting old. Waters and others of her ilk are like a bad joke, that people keep telling, not realizing it's not entertaining!!

it's somehow acceptable for that woman and her pals to break the law,

Did the others do something? I am not aware of that do you have a link?
Did you watch the video where she made the sound?

The People's voice is not heard anymore and yet we let the government do as they will. They lie, they steal from us, they grow rich off the public and the media never covers any cry from the public. They don't even have to show up and do their jobs, they just live for big corps money and work with the peddlers. It truly shocks me that this is now acceptable and people have forgotten, forgotten so many things. I am afraid the youth will have their chance to understand again soon enough.


Yes they did, and she did a lot more than just make a quiet noise. The group was there to be disruptive, and the game the media's playing, pretending a "laugh" is why she's being prosecuted, while ignoring the rest of her actions and that she's not the only one being charged, is just that; a game. She and her pals chose to disrupt court proceedings, and they can now face the music for their choice. Legal protest doesn't include disruption of business, court proceedings, etc. I am all for legal protest, so long as those doing it don't break the law. Disrupting court, or a business, blocking sidewalks, entries, and streets, etc., isn't legal protest. Teaching out youth that breaking the law is acceptable isn't a good plan.

I guess you missed the list of all the right wing outbursts that were just told to leave during confirmations and hearings.

I guess you missed my response to that post that shows the protestors were arrested, charged and were found guilty / accepted guilty pleas.

I did miss that. I saw one case where they were charged.

Personally I don't care much. I think obviously you should be escorted out and slapped with a misdemeanor. But this happens all the time.

What you are trying to say it's it's the liberals. Always the liberals...

You conservative and liberal folks can be real silly with your alliances.

Actually I am not saying that nor have I ever said that. What I did was show that previous interruptions in congressional hearings resulted in the same outcome - people be arrested, charged and getting their day in court.

I can only go by the whole episode they showed on the news channel where I watched it. I don't care about either Sessions or this Woman one way or another, I care when the law becomes a hammer and not applied reasonably and fit the crime.



Teaching out youth that breaking the law is acceptable isn't a good plan.

What kind of world is it, what kind of country where you see someone who is believed to have shown the qualities of a racist and is heralded as the opposite so you make a sound, and for this, you can be imprisoned for years? I don't find that something to be proud to teach our children.




Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, has drawn much criticism due to racially charged comments he made when he was a U.S. attorney in Alabama in the 1980s.

The claims of "racial bias" have been refuted although you would never know that because the liberal left would rather constantly report lies than the truth.

5 Main Myths About Jeff Sessions DEBUNKED

It covers the following -
1. Sessions supported the KKK.
2. Sessions’ issues with the Voting Rights Act means he’s a racist.
3. Sessions said a white civil rights lawyer was a “disgrace to his race.”
4. Sessions’ comments about the NAACP makes him a racist.
5. Sessions called his fellow black lawyers “boy,” making disparaging comments about African Americans during his tenure as US Attorney.

All debunked yet the left still repeats the false accusations as if they are valid.

I don't really care personally I only care that many people believe these are the things he meant and they were not jokes.Their belief in his being racist makes the "outburst" understandable and to the degree, she should have quietly been asked to leave.



“Senator Sessions was denied appointment as a federal judge in 1986 for a slew of racist comments, including calling the work of the NAACP and ACLU ‘un-American.’ He has also repeatedly spoken out against the federal Voting Rights Act.”

So this isn't calling out democrats as the only ones?

So in other words the Republicans don't have bad jokes?

The law should not be applied 'reasonably'. It should just be applied. Picking and choosing who to apply the law to is what liberals want, but it is not healthy for any society.

Sentencing can be reasonable.

If they'd resisted leaving, and were charged, as in this case, that would have been just. A hearing isn't the pace for a protest.

Had she and her pals left quietly, there likely would have been no charges. Laws exist for a reason, and they were deliberately disrupting court proceedings. Anyone doing that can face jail time. They planned it.

It isn't about discussing Sessions, and you know it. It's about disrupting proceedings. She can protest all day long, in a proper setting. Legal protest does NOT include disrupting business, court proceedings, etc. That is her flaw. Besides, this habit of labeling everyone not a Leftist as "racist", that some have, is ridiculous. I don't see that as something worthy of teaching my children.
