Pro-Trump Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz were chased out of a press conference they were attempting to hold Tuesday afternoon by a mob of violent far-leftists who were dead set on silencing them.

As The New York Post reports:

Congress members Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Louis Gohmert (R-Texas), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Bob Good (R-Va.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) gave remarks from a podium outside the office of the DOJ, to which Greene claimed they were barred entry.

“We want to know how the detainees are being treated inside the jails,” Greene began before introducing Gohmert.

“Antifa and BLM set fires to this country for months and we did not see an interest from federal law enforcement at those claims, but now there are Americans all over this country who are being harassed, who are being targeted by law enforcement, and if there is a basis for that, we need to make sure we get it,” Gaetz told the crowd.

Throughout the 20-minute event, one protester incessantly blew some kind of loud whistle while others attempted to shout down the Congress members, and by the end, a small crowd with signs surrounded the podium, forcing the lawmakers to be ushered away by staff.

When even elected congressmen and women can’t speak their minds in public without risking assault by a violent mob what really remains of freedom of speech?

I believe you should be commenting on Common Sense’s post. He’s the one who’s saying grown men like Gaetz shouldn’t fear 20 year old rabble rousers who well might be anarchist ANTIFA members.

Sadly, there was a dedicated Leftist on one site who believed the 1st Amendment allowed not just shouting down speakers and disrupting meetings, but using threats and if necessary mob action to shut down what he considered racist misogynist, and fascist speech. He was also a site to site stalker. THAT is the Left.

ok I kinda agree but me I would have had protection and these antifa clowns, well as I have said the vast majority are cowards, the ones that need to be taken care of we should be doing that. These few are probably in the country illegally and should be deported or better charged and have serious jail time if not moree harsh punishment, if not???

We fully understand, that censorship is in full bloom under the current Progressive Socialist regime. They have all of the tools at their fingertips to ensure their views are the only ones heard.

Obviously, they don’t fear 20-year-old spoiled college students. Fact is, they’re sufficiently experienced to recognize the point at which a small gathering has grown into a media circus. These days, everyone fears big media. Some of us hate what it has become.

Clearly, most media have collapsed and rebirthed into political shills. These days they’re powerful and partisan instruments of socialism. But the worm always turns unless someone steps on it. When media begin to reel from the wrongs they’ve committed, powerful socialists will destroy them.

You don’t seem to understand where they are and what is going on. They are in Washington, D.C. The FBI reports directly to the Democrat party. The D.C. forces are under Democrat control. The Federal police forces are under Democrat control. The streets of D.C. are under US Military control. I don’t think they have sent the National Guard home yet.

If you take the time to add up all of the Federal police agencies in that area, you would think protection for Congressional Representatives would be automatic. Not so in Biden’s Progressive Socialist District of Columbia.

They should have been inside the DOJ and where not allowed to go there, Very unusual, to say the least. This is not your father’s Constitutional Republic, where ALL members of Congress had the right to protest in our Nation’s Capital. Only members of the Progressive Socialist (used to be called Democrats) party are allowed to express their views in public. Anyone else does so at risk of harm to their body or reputation. Censorship is live and well in Washington D.C..
