Screenshot: Senator Tom Cotton

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) made headlines by suggesting that Americans should “take matters into their own hands” in response to anti-Israel protests taking place across the country.

Specifically, he was addressing a situation where pro-Palestinian protesters blocked traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

Cotton, in an interview with Fox News, said that if the protesters were on a bridge in his home state, things would be handled a little differently.

The Senator channeled his inner Try That In A Small Town.

“If something like this happened in Arkansas on a bridge there, let’s just say that there would be a lot of wet criminals that would have been tossed overboard, not by law enforcement, but by the people whose road they are blocking,” Cotton said.

Tom Cotton Has Some Advice On How To Deal With Protesters

Senator Tom Cotton is right. These protesters are emboldened to shut down traffic, to harass everyday people, because there are no repercussions for their actions.

If law enforcement isn’t going to, ya know, enforce the law, then the people are left to their own devices.

Cotton further expounded on his thoughts in a post on the X social media platform.

“I encourage people who get stuck behind the pro-Hamas mobs blocking traffic: take matters into your own hands to get them out of the way,” he writes.

“It’s time to put an end to this nonsense.”

It certainly is.

The First Amendment allows “the right of the people peaceably to assemble.” But these protests are essentially accosting people against their will. It is harassment.

Lawbreakers Need To Fear Law Enforcement, Not The Law Abiding

The one flaw in Tom Cotton’s plan is that the justice system in leftist cities like San Francisco is corrupt from top to bottom.

Two famous people who took matters into their own hands by defending their own lives or the lives of others around them – Kyle Rittenhouse and Daniel Penny – have been treated like the real criminals.

Who is going to be there for people like that if they decide to treat these protesters roughly?

The pro-Palestinian protesters haven’t just been targeting the average American. They obviously upset Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) when they went after her outside a movie theater last month.

A group of protesters stormed a cafeteria inside the Dirksen Senate Office Building just days ago. Some of those involved in the protest can be heard chanting that the “Senate can’t eat until Gaza eats!”

One woman in Germany shows people how to deal with those protesters blocking bridges or highways. This past summer, the woman dubbed the “brutal blonde” dragged a climate protester out of the street by her hair. 

When the protester came back, she dragged them away again.

And that’s basically how you do it, folks.
