Louisville, Kentucky, a few days ago Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; abruptly left Sarino, an Italian restaurant in Schnitzelburg, on Sunday night after protesters blared Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power” and yelled “no justice no peace.”
This event marked the second time on this weekend that Louisville protesters had heckled McConnell to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
This time “all of the restaurants chefs came out and they were yelling at the protesters,” said Nick Hulstine, a bartender at Four Pegs. “You could see McConnell’s unmarked vehicles and bodyguards in the parking lot.”
Hulstine said Four Pegs was hosting a trivia night when protesters started gathering outside on Goss Avenue. Shortly after, the trivia host announced McConnell was at Sarino and rolled out his speaker to disrupt the senator while he ate.
They did it to hold McConnell accountable,” Ibañez said. “One person had a megaphone … and then management kicked them out.”
Jesus Ibañez, an organizer for Occupy ICE in Louisville, confirmed to the Courier Journal that protesters from his organization confronted McConnell.
Ben Norton, a bar patron who caught the demonstration on video, said several protesters went inside the restaurant and were quickly escorted out. McConnell left out the back door and drove off with his security detail in his Escalade convoy.
As Flavor would say-“Fight the Power! We Gotta Fight the power that be.”
By the way is it just me or does that Mitch McConnell “Mug,” look like plastic?…(Ice Ice Baby too cold too cold)…I’m Just saying!
