Hecklers scream at Blinken for Israel-Hamas ‘ceasefire’ during Senate hearing: ‘Where is your pride America?’

A Senate hearing on a supplemental funding package to assist Israel in its war against Hamas descended into chaos Tuesday morning as more than a dozen hecklers have been detained after yelling at Secretary of State Antony Blinken for a “ceasefire now!” 

The unrest boiled over immediately after Blinken began speaking at the Senate Appropriations Committee meeting, with the first heckler screaming at Blinken to “stop supporting the genocide and ethnic cleansing of the people of Gaza.” 

“Ceasefire now! Save the children of Gaza, save the children of Gaza!” the man shouted as his voice was cracking.  

“Where is your pride America?” he asked the hearing room while being dragged out by security. 

 

“Secretary Blinken, I just really want to thank the Capitol Police for their very calm and professional manner. We all appreciate it,” Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said at one point.
