Activists Protest Outside McConnell’s Home for Not Advancing Bill Democrats Blocked
On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home was accosted by BLM activists demanding coronavirus relief funds.
One of the activists screamed:
“If we don’t get $600! [Crowd: No peace!] I said if we don’t get $600! [No peace!] I said if we don’t get $600! [No peace!] I said if we don’t get $600! [No peace!]
“No $600! [Crowd: No peace!] No $600! [No peace!] No $600! [No peace!] No $600! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!]
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe! Black Lives Matter! Black Lives Matter! Black Lives Matter! Black Lives Matter! Black Lives Matter!
“I need that money, and until I get that money, I’m going to be right here on C Street everyday until I get it. No justice! [Crowd: No peace!] No justice! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!]”

One small problem, aside from a house of a 78-year-old being stormed like this—Senate Democrats were the ones who killed the bill. The party of the little guy, supposedly, blocked the bill that included funding for the people left unemployed by coronavirus-induced lockdowns.
Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer even said that the attempt to pass legislation was “a rather pointless vote on the latest highly partisan Republican emaciated COVID relief bill.”
The Daily Wire reported:
On Thursday afternoon, McConnell appeared on Fox News where he addressed Democrats’ latest decision to kill stimulus spending to help Americans, which he said was part of their goal of providing “no help for American families before the election.”
“What part of this bill are they opposed to?” McConnell asked. “What we tried to do, Dana, was to craft a package that underscored the things that we supposedly agree on — kids in school, replenishing the popular small business loan program, which is out of money, more money for hospitals and covering unemployment insurance for another six months. What’s to not like about that?”
“What they’re saying is, we won’t pass things that we are even in favor of, unless you give us trillions more. The national debt is already the size of our economy for the first time since World War II,” McConnell continued. “We’re not going to squander funds here. We want to narrowly target the needs of the American people. That’s what this vote is about.”
Whether one agrees with the bill or not, it’s a fair question to ask: if Democrats killed the bill, why are activists blaming the GOP?
The answer is that it’s not about unemployment money, legislation, or anything else other than destroying the GOP and putting the Left in power. This is the same reason that Senate Democrats killed Tim Scott’s police reform bill in June, all while claiming they want police reform.
The strategy has always been to advance the Left because its only principle and goal is power.
