Mitch McConnell Heckled Out of Restaurant for Second Time in Two Days [View all]


Mitch McConnell Heckled Out of Restaurant for Second Time in Two Days
A crowd of protestors played Public Enemy’s ‘Fight the Power’ and shouted “no justice, no peace”

No restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky, is safe for Mitch McConnell, it seems. Protesters followed the Senate Majority Leader to his dinner destination on Sunday night, blasting Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” and chanting “no justice, no peace.” McConnell and his group was forced to leave Italian restaurant Sarino mid-meal due to the disturbance, according to the Courier Journal.

The episode follows a lunch in Louisville over the weekend after which McConnell was chased by protesters yelling “Vote him out!” “Abolish ICE!” and “Go home!” (McConnell is based in Louisville when he’s not in Washington, D.C.)

A bartender who works at the restaurant next door, Nick Hulstine, saw the protesters coming and offered up his speaker system to play “Fight the Power.” One of the protesters had a mega-phone, and a group of about 10 entered the restaurant while McConnell was dining. According to passers-by, the staff at Sarino wanted to serve McConnell, and were yelling at the protesters to leave. Some staff began to escort the protesters out. Ultimately, it was McConnell who left, with bodyguards and in unmarked cars this time, per the Courier Journal.

“They did it to hold McConnell accountable,” Jesus Ibañez, an organizer for Occupy ICE in Louisville, confirmed to the Courier Journal. Though McConnell opposed the Trump administrations separation of children from their parents at the border, he does support the administration’s other immigration policies, including forced detainment.
