Dem congresswoman arrested for illegal protest inside Senate office building

A House Democrat was arrested in Washington D.C. on Thursday after storming a Senate building to demand an end to the filibuster, which is holding Democrats in Congress back from passing sweeping election reform. 

Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH), the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, was placed into handcuffs by Capitol Police at the Hart Senate Office building.

Democrat arrested for protesting filibuster

Wearing a “protect our voting rights” shirt, Beatty led a group of protesters into the atrium, chanting “end the filibuster!” before police intervened. Capitol Police said that nine people were arrested in a “prohibited area” and charged with misdemeanors.

“At approximately 3:30pm, the United States Capitol Police responded to the Atrium in the Hart Senate Office Building for reports of illegal demonstration activity. After officers arrived on the scene, they warned the demonstrators three times to stop,” the police said.

The arrest capped off a week dominated by national controversy over voting, as Democrats ramped up a push for “voting rights” from the White House on down.

Liberals, frustrated with a lack of progress on sweeping election legislation in Congress, showered praise on Democratic state legislators from Texas who took the radical and subversive step of absconding to Washington to block an election integrity bill in their state.

President Joe Biden also pushed for the Democrat-proposed For the People Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Act in a demagogic speech on Tuesday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he compared Republican efforts to limit voter fraud to the Civil War and segregationist “Jim Crow” laws.

Staged? Dems dial up sentimentality in “voting rights” push

But some on the left are dissatisfied with anything less than killing the filibuster, a Senate procedural tool that requires 60 votes to advance a bill, which for now is dooming their efforts to pass their radical agenda unilaterally.

As they seek to build a sense of moral urgency behind their agenda, Democrats have turned to overwrought, sentimental rhetoric, with frequent references to the far more dramatic events of the Civil Rights era.

It appears that Beatty, like the Texas Democrats who sang “We Shall Overcome” (presumably after drinking a case of Miller Lite), was looking to create an effect. “I stand in solidarity with Black women and allies across the country in defense of our constitutional right to vote,” she said in response to her arrest.

“We have come too far and fought too hard to see everything systematically dismantled and restricted by those who wish to silence us. Be assured that this is just the beginning. This is Our Power, Our Message,” she added.

Pardon the cynicism, but was this staged?
