They Tried Clawing Open The SCOTUS Doors
“Not my judge, Brett Kavanaugh,” they chanted in the above video. Another video showed several protesters clearly trying to beat on the Supreme Court doors as the crowd chanted, “shut it down!”
“Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Kavanaugh has got to go,” the protesters chanted as they flooded the steps of the court, many with fists raised in the air, others with arms linked.
Law enforcement was able to eventually form a line between the door and the group of protestors.
As reported by NBC News:
Kavanaugh was confirmed 50-48 on the Senate floor. Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana was absent for the vote due to his daughter’s wedding, prompting Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska to vote “present” as part of a practice called a “pair between senators.” Murkowski opposed Kavanaugh, but withdrew her vote as part of the practice, which keeps voting margins the same, indifferent of Daines’ absence.
Following Kavanaugh’s confirmation, protesters began singing, “We Shall Not Be Moved,” an African-American spiritual, outside the capitol.
Around 6 p.m. on Saturday, Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice in private ceremony.
Earlier in the day, protester Alethea Shapiro traveled from Long Island, New York, to Washington, D.C., for the second weekend in a row to protest Kavanaugh.
Hours ahead of the Senate’s vote, Shapiro joined the hundreds of women and men protesting on Capitol Hill.
“I’m really very worried about women’s reproductive right,” Shapiro said, as chants decrying Kavanaugh echoed around her. She added before the Senate vote that Kavanaugh’s impending confirmation made her sad, “but I’m really hopeful because I feel like this is a revolution. People won’t understand the power and passion unless you’re here.”
And that’s the way the cookie crumbles. The accusations didn’t hold up, they didn’t hold weight… but they can’t accept that. Their way or the highway.
