We’re not saying this to be mean, but we really did have to go to imdb.com to find out from what movie we should know actress and activist Piper Perabo. She’s been in a lot, but her big break seems to have been “Coyote Ugly” back in 2000.
Linda Sarsour wasn’t the only big name removed from the hearing room; Perabo was too, and CNN was kind enough to give her space on their site to write about the experience.
I was arrested for what I believe in.

She writes at CNN as if she were called on to give a statement from the gallery:
I was the fourth person to stand and speak. My statement: “Senators, this President is an unindicted co-conspirator in federal crimes and should not be allowed to choose a judge that believes the President is above the law. Especially a judge that would take away women’s equal rights. Please, be a hero and vote no on Kavanaugh.” Well, that’s what I planned to say, but was pulled away by the Capitol Police before I could deliver all of it.
The police took me and about 10 other women to the basement. They handcuffed us with big, white zip ties. They took our possessions. They put us in police vans. More and more people were being brought to the basement to be arrested. They were almost all women.
Women are the future, after all.
Perabo admitted that she was scared when she was arrested, and MoveOn last week was generous enough to make a video featuring both her arrest and a list of liberal talking points about Kavanaugh.
I admit it – I was scared.
But what's more scary to me is the prospect of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

It must be a truly bizarre experience to be Kavanaugh. You muddle along for fifty years, then wake up one morning and for some reason the lady from “Coyote Ugly” hates your ever-loving guts. https://t.co/rGijoGpu92

Remember, people like this are insane enough to believe it's acceptable to disrupt a government hearing. That isn't protesting, that's being rude and obnoxious. https://t.co/y41qLbgumD

You know what else was probably scary? Being Kavanaugh’s 13-year-old and 10-year-old daughters being escorted from the hearing room while people were screaming and shouting at their father.
I'm genuinely concerned for the mental health of these people, especially considering there's a good chance Trump will replace RBG. https://t.co/lbCuemRNa5

Girl he's getting confirmed y'all might as well suck it up. Your Democrat leaders are more besties with republicans than you think. https://t.co/GJw6UAFvTN

Want proof that there's no use sending them choir boy conservatives (and I don't mean that pejoratively) in hopes they'll be reasonable? Look no further than hysterics surrounding the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh. This will be their reaction. Every. Time. No matter who we send. https://t.co/2F2Zv6qk7T

Yep … they were ready to go even before Kavanaugh’s name was announced.
GAME OVER? Cher & Bette Midler sing the Resistance blues, declare likely Kavanaugh confirmation 'the end of your freedom' https://t.co/dXQmNwpgrk
