Five Republican members of Congress were chased out of their own rally in front of the Department of Justice (DOJ) by a crowd of liberal protestors.
From The Daily Caller:
Five Republican members of Congress were chased out of their own rally outside of the Department of Justice (DOJ) by left-wing protesters Tuesday.
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, Virginia Rep. Bob Good, and Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar held a press conference and rally outside the DOJ’s offices to protest the alleged treatment of Capitol riot defendants. Attorneys for the defendants have argued that their clients are not being treated fairly, and in some cases are being held in solitary confinement for up to 23 hours a day.
The congressmen explained that Attorney General Merrick Garland did not respond to a letter they sent him outlining their concerns about the treatment of Capitol riot defendants, and that they were not allowed access to him at the DOJ building.

As Greene began her comments, a protester began blowing a whistle in an effort to drown her out. Other protesters held up signs reading “Traitors and Rapists Sit Down” and “Pedophiles for Trump.”
Matt Gaetz would later comment that “communist leftists” were dead set on silencing free speech and that he would not be the one to back down.
This is not the first time Gaetz has been run out of town at one of his own events. Gaetz previously tried to hold rallies in California but these events were shut down by the cities he was trying to host them in.
