Obviously the left believes acting like churlish punks will help the cause. Maybe next time they can drag Eric Cantor out into the streets and hang him in public for not behaving as they wish.
For the second time in six months, a group of pro-immigration protesters stormed inside the private northern Virginia residence of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.
About two dozen activists from a group called Casa de Virginia appeared at the Cantor’s condo complex in Arlington at about 8 p.m. Thursday. One distracted the complex’s front desk clerk long enough to allow the rest to stream into the lobby area.
Once inside, they attempted to distribute fliers to residents accusing Cantor of being “the one man blocking immigration reform.” They also loudly chanted, according to residents. At least one protester shouted through a bullhorn.
Police were called and the protesters continued their activities on the sidewalk outside the complex before finally leaving around 9 p.m. No one was reported injured and no arrests were made.
An affiliated group called Casa en Action did the exact same thing at Cantor’s condo complex in November. in that incident, one protester gained entry by pretending to inquire about getting a unit, then letting the others in.
Both times, the groups did not alert anyone in the media that they would be staging a protest – despite the fact that publicity is usually the main point of such an event. I only found out about it because I happen to live in the neighborhood.
Cantor should move somewhere with armed guards who should be given to the go-ahead to shoot on sight.
If the purpose of the protest was to cause enough problems to turn Cantor’s neighbors against him, it apparently wasn’t working.
“Nobody here has a problem with them marching in the street. We believe in free speech. It is the home invasion that is the problem. It was like somebody staging a protest in your living room,” Briggs said.
Gomez agreed, stating: “This is no way to do it. Totally counter-productive.”
This is how liberals behave. If they don’t get their way they become a criminal mob.
