With the impending confirmation of soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, left-wing protesters are storming Washington, D.C.
Acting like zombie robots, videos are emerging of protest leaders instructing activists on their activities on Capitol Hill. The instructions are to go to Senate offices to confront Senators telling them their stories.
The instructions are read off line-by-line, with activists repeating the statements made in robotic fashion.
In one of the videos, a protest leader is heard instructing protesters to visit Sen. Heidi Heitkamp’s office. One protester is heard responding back confused, asking “Why? She’s on our side.”
PROTEST LEADER: “I am going to go to Heidi Heitkamp’s office”
CHANTING: “I am going to go to Heidi Heitkamp’s office”
CONFUSED PROTESTER: “Why? She’s on our side.”

Considering that Heitkamp is opposing Kavanaugh, she is correct in that assessment.
In response to the videos, Sen. John Cornyn Tweeted out, calling them “Kinda cultish.”

While Kavanaugh’s confirmation is a virtual certainty, Democrats are hoping for a miracle.
There are a few Senators being targeted with hopes of becoming a surprise no vote. The most probable of those is Sen. Jeff Flake, who has been flakey on Kavanaugh since the first sexual assault allegation drops.
Big League Politics Editor in Chief Patrick Howley explained how Flake could end up being convinced the same way Sen. Muskowski of North Dakota was in a recent video.
These protests are meant to target people like Flake, who could be flipped.
