At one point during his outdoor rally at a building supply company, Romney was interrupted by protesters chanting, “We are the people.” He quickly dismissed them.
“No, actually, these are the people,” Romney shouted back. “These are the people; you’re the interrupters. We believe in the Constitution. We believe in the right to speech. And you believe in interrupting. Take a hike.”
Romney’s supporters drowned them out by chanting “U-S-A.”
Elizabeth Myers, in an email, said she was one of the protesters at the rally. She said the demonstrators started the chant "U-S-A," which the rest of the crowd ultimately joined.
The chant went: "Mr. One Percent. Corporations are not people. We are the people. We are America. We are the 99%. U-S-A."
Though it was unclear to most of the crowd who the protesters were representing, Romney suggested they were attacking “free enterprise.”
“I love these guys, by the way, who don’t like America and our free-enterprise system, and they have something else in mind,” he said. “Take a look at Cuba; take a look at North Korea; take a look at the former Soviet Union. Our system works. What they’re fighting for does not work. I believe in America.”
