A campaign event in Coral Gables that was supposed to star Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Barbara Lee didn’t go as planned on Wednesday after protesters converged on the locale to let “Communista” Lee and company know how they felt about the congresswoman praising Fidel Castro.

The Miami Herald’s Jimena Tavel documented the “uncivil” encounter (h/t Twitchy). “[Rep. Nancy Pelosi] and [Rep. Barbara Lee] were scheduled to campaign for [Donna Shalala] and [Debbie Mucarsel-Powell] here today. About 25 protesters are standing outside, holding signs supporting Republicans and accusing Democrats of being communists,” wrote Tavel.

“The crowd has grown,” she posted later. “They’re striking the door to the building where the event will take place. They’re also screaming ‘commie’ and calling the Democrats ‘witches.'”

One of the protesters, she wrote, is veteran who took part in the Bay of Pigs invasion. He told her he’s insulted that Democrats would invite Rep. Lee, who said we should all “stop, pause and mourn” Castro when he died. “I’m angry,” veteran Frank de Varona told Tavel.

“Nelson Diaz, the chairman of the Republican Party, said protesters belong to several groups but are all united against Democrats,” Tavel reports.

“There’s nothing worse in this country than [Rep. Lee],” said Nelson Diaz, chairman of the Republican Party. The protesters, he told Tavel, are from different groups but united to tell Democrats that “socialism kills.”

Secret Service and police locked the doors of the building to keep the “angry” protesters out. The event was eventually canceled. While it’s been Democrat politicians who have been urging protesters to be less “civil,” the cancelation left some Democrats complaining about the protesters’ actions derailing the event.

“It’s unfortunate that a group of peaceful citizens can’t engage with the candidates they support, while the protesters get to do whatever they want,” said former Miami Dade County Commissioner Katy Sorenson.

While Lee was the cause of some of the commotion, she reportedly failed to show up.

      Exactly they don’t like it when it happens to them but yet you have Holder telling people when they go low we kick them. Democrats want to harass Republicans in restaurants and when they are out any where in public but complain when it happens to them.

    I understand that the Republicans are after 2 1/2 years of Democrats Mob attacks want to show the Democratic Party who has been pushing there followers to do at any cost are given them a taste of there own medicine. I wonder how long the Snowflake Democrats could take it.
    The Republicans are mirroring the Dems obnoxiously loud attitude, profanity, violent example to give them the full experience.
    I would like to see the Republicans show the Democrats how to properly, peacefully get you point across in a non-Democratic way without profanity, violence, obnoxiously loud attitude.
    The Democratic Party and liberals may not pick up on the proper use of the 1st amendment. If they don’t that would prove there total ignorance. Show by example the way true leaders show there point.
    Republicans simple moto is To lead by Example.
    Republicans moto: Do as we say and Ignore what we do.
    The Democratic Party and liberals don’t understand the true meaning of the 1st amendment. Its to give you the freedom to express your opinion not not to force it especially not with the use of profanity, violence, obnoxiously loud attitude and not allow an other opinion to oppose theirs which takes away everyone else’s 1st Amendment right. The Democrats I don’t think know how to be open minded in a civil debate.

      Up to today’s date – republicans HAVE been quiet. That time is over. Apparently they only understand loud obnoxious behavior – it is what they push afterall.

      That’s why we are in the situation we’re in! The Republicans played nice too long and let the dems get out of hand! Now that Republicans are pushing back everyone is in a twitter. I’d say it’s time to push back on the communist, socialist democrats. Not with violence the way they have, but good old fashioon TRUTH, which is something they don’t have idea about.

    With the shoe on the other foot, Pelosi and the DemonRATS need experiences like this to change their mouths and behaviors, as they don’t have the common sense to speak up about what Republicans have been experiencing. Mad Maxine really needs to experience this!

    That’s pretty funny. Not to be critical, but . . . They’re not yelling enough in quantity or volume. It would probably hurt their throats if they did. And no one can keep this up the way the liberals do; because they’re being paid by Soros the puppetmaster. The rest of us have a life. Plus, what a waste of time to do that. what a stupid way to spend your life so Soros will pay for your weed, or something. They are paving the way for Is lam to fill the vacuum left by the Communists.

    For the cubans that have come here long time ago and integrated into this great country there is no phony explanation of “democratic ideas” from Pelosi, Schumer, lately that ignoramus Supremes Alexandra Ocasio-Cortés, and other scumbags that have sucked from the Soros tits for so long. WE KNOW WHAT THEY WANT! And I, for one, will be dammed if we are going to let them get away with it.
