The thing that all the major media outlets missed is that the fact that this is a ‘progressive’ protestor… obviously, these people have zero understanding of respect.

Kamala Harris is one of the many, many contenders for the democrat presidential race, but she’s been plagued with problems of late, especially from a base that prefers old, white men.

On Saturday’s MoveOn ‘Big Ideas’ forum in California, Harris was speaking when an ‘animal activist’—who happens to be white—jumped on stage and swiped the mic from her hand.

Liberals immediately drew parallels to the ‘symbolism’ of a white man talking away a woman of color’s ability to speak, but they missed the real point.

This is the way progressives have been trained by the liberal education system to behave. Zero respect, zero ability to conduct themselves in public in a normal manner if their ‘feelings’ overcome them.

Townhall reported on the fracas:

Things got interesting on Saturday during MoveOn’s “Big Ideas” forum at the California Democratic Party convention. A protestor with a press pass jumped on stage, walked up to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and took the microphone from her hand.

In the clip, Harris’ husband, Douglas Emhoff, can be seen jumping on stage, trying to pull the microphone out of the guy’s hand.

According to a Boston Globe reporter, the man is an animal rights activist.

Naturally, the issue of race and gender came up.

I asked Aidan Cook, an animal rights activist who jumped onstage to interrupt Kamala Harris, if he had considered the optics of literally taking the microphone away from women of color.

“I did,” he said. “I tried to show my profound respect for each of the people onstage.” pic.twitter.com/uyMpV82lVP

Cook, 24, said he tried to show his respect while grabbing Kampala’s mike by keeping his hands up and telling her “I’m really sorry to be doing this, I just have to ask you an important question.”

Apparently the man is part of the Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) group. According to their website, the group is comprised of “a community of activists seeking total animal liberation through nonviolent direct action and open rescue.”
