If you’ve been watching Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, you’ve no doubt seen the repeated interruptions from screeching protesters. Guardian political reporter Ben Jacobs (yeah, the broken glasses guy) can’t help but notice a pattern:
It's remarkable how protestors have interrupted the Kavanaugh hearings at several different moments when Kavanaugh was about to answer tough questions from Democrats

What’s he suggesting, exactly?

Yep. No interruptions during the Sasse civics class but as soon as Coons begins to speak. Weird 🤔

I'm sure it's totally a coincidence.

Yes. Doesn’t it just make you wonder??!

You’re onto something

Onto what? Another right-wing conspiracy?
Do you think they are working for the Republicans?
— Crow (@sistercrow) September 6, 2018
Fake protesters perhaps?
— Meeche (@meechebucco) September 6, 2018
I noticed that too. The protesters are mostly interrupting Democrats. Agent Provocateurs from GOP?

Agree. Right wing plants

Linda Sarsour is most definitely a right-wing plant.
How many do you think are GOP plants to paint Dems as obstructors

Maybe that's why @ChuckGrassley won't ban them. Not good.

All the world is a stage. All the GOP are staged.

So GOP is hiring crisis actors? I love it.

I NOTICED THAT ALSO…LIKE PLANTS TRYING TO SWAY THE FOCUS THUS MAKING DEMS LOOK BAD…OTHER THAN WOODWARDS BOOK…I THINK A LOT OF THIS..OP-ED/PROTESTS/ETC…ARE PLANNED DIVERSIONARY TACTICS FROM THE RIGHT..STEPHEN MILLER..TO TAKE THE FOCUS OFF THE BALL

Almost makes us nostalgic for “White Power”-gate.
Let’s review the footage. I’ll bet they were all discreetly flashing the “white supremacy/okay” sign as well. 👌 pic.twitter.com/qpcDjjwq0M
