Left-wing activists celebrate after ‘humiliating’ Klobuchar

Resist Line 3 also bragged about their infiltration of the event, saying activists "flooded in through a service entrance."

Line 3 protesters who call themselves “water protectors” recently confronted Sen. Amy Klobuchar yet again.

The latest incident occurred Thursday in the middle of the senator’s speech at a Democratic fundraising event, a little more than a month after protesters cornered her in an elevator following a similar fundraiser.

On Twitter the left-wing environmentalists posted a truncated video of “indigenous youth questioning [Klobuchar’s] inaction on Line 3.” Despite attempts to take control of the floor, Klobuchar eventually gave up and walked off the stage after protesters began a “Stop Line 3” chant.

The group, Resist Line 3, characterized the move as “fleeing the stage” and celebrated their “humiliation” of the senator.

Resist Line 3 also bragged about their infiltration of the event, saying activists “flooded in through a service entrance.”

“As long as Amy Klobuchar is complicit in Line 3 destroying her own constituents and her own state, she deserves for her events to be shut down. Full stop,” they added.

Anti-Line 3 leftists have been consistently targeting some of Minnesota’s top Democratic politicians over the past couple months. In mid-October they chased Sen. Tina Smith off stage at an academic event, and just a couple weeks prior they confronted her after she gave a speech on climate change.

In early September Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz quit a speech at a fundraiser just a few minutes after beginning because protesters heckled him over his refusal to block Line 3 construction.

The Minnesota DFL Party has ostensibly recognized the persistence of the “water protectors” as a serious problem. Their efforts are said to have played a role in the governor’s decision to hold a virtual reelection kickoff event in late October.
