Things went awry for San Francisco Attorney General Brooke Jenkins during a debate at San Francisco State University last week.
According to Fox News, a mob of demonstrators took over the room she was in, causing her to leave the building.
The confrontation occurred as Jenkins was attempting to face off in a pre-election debate against fellow Democratic challengers John Hamasaki and Joe Alioto Veronese, with many protestors chanting, “No justice, no peace!”
DA Brooke Jenkins (@BrookeJenkinsSF) you’re a COWARD for leaving the district attorney forum simply because protestors wanted to speak up. All you had to do was listen pic.twitter.com/rNX77bBkMq

Jenkins is not the only Democrat to recently find herself being confronted by left-wing protestors as New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was in a similar situation early this month.
Fox News reported that the incident occurred on October 13 at an event in the Bronx and features demonstrators unfavorably comparing Cortez to former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard over her support for American assistance to Ukraine.

“None of this matters unless there’s a nuclear war, which you voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine,” one of the protesters yelled.
“You ran as an outsider, yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine. You’re voting to start a third nuclear war with Russia and China. Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?”
“Tulsi Gabbard has shown guts where you’ve shown cowardice,” another protester said. “I believed in you, and you became the very thing you sought to fight against.”
“I believed in you”
“I believed in you, and you became the very thing you sought to fight against. That’s what you’ve become,” he said. “You are the establishment.”
Gabbard announced that she left the Democratic Party this month, citing differences over foreign policy as one of her reasons for doing so.
