Leftist protesters decided it would be a good idea to heckle Senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn and Senator Lyndsey Graham during a moment of silence for the victims of the synagogue shooting. Yes, this does absolutely nothing but make people #WalkAway from Democrats. Can you imagine interrupting a solemn moment of silence to screech about a candidate? We can’t imagine why the protesters thought this was in any way appropriate or motivating for anyone on either side.
Watch as the protesters interrupt:

It was reported that some of the protesters were Black Lives Matter activists:
Black Lives Matter protesters were just forcibly removed from the
@VoteMarsha rally in Nashville
Here’s another angle:
This woman, during a moment of silence for the victims of the Pittsburgh shooting yesterday, yelled “Marsha Blackburn is a white supremacist.” When she was removed, Blackburn said “how despicable that you cannot even have a moment of silence.”
Things got ugly with numerous arrests and forced removal of protesters screaming out. Lindsey Graham finally got up to the podium and cracked a joke. He asked if there were any more protesters in the room now was the time for them to speak up. Leave it to Lindsey to keep things moving!
