(RightWing.org) – Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters are known for interrupting politicians’ campaign events. During the 2015 primary campaign, the activists disrupted both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. They’re back at it again this time around, but this time they interrupted someone who introduced a bill in August to hold rioters accountable for their destructive behavior.
On September 3, BLM activists interrupted a campaign event with Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) where the two were discussing their new legislation aimed to enforce the laws against rioting. The Georgia senator was hosting a get-together when the activists decided to be rude. Protesters began chanting “black lives matter” after the senator began speaking about her anti-BLM stance. When police refused to intervene, supporters at the event spoke up themselves with chants of “USA.” Despite the disturbance, Loeffler continued to speak, not letting them stop her or her message.
After the event, she spoke about the bill she supports during an interview with Fox & Friends. The senator explained she believes lawmakers have to restore “law and order” and “hold them [rioters] accountable” for their actions. That’s exactly what she’s doing by co-sponsoring the “Holding Rioters Accountable Act” with Senator Cotton. The legislation will allow the federal government to reduce funding when the local jurisdictions fail to address the violence.
Loeffler addressed the bill on Twitter, as well.
Our cities are being destroyed & in so many cases, groups like BLM and Antifa are to blame.

It’s about time someone held them accountable. BLM protesters and Antifa thugs have been causing violence in cities across the country. Regardless of how the BLM movement began, it has morphed into a disaster and the rioting and destruction has to stop.
