Fetterman slams anti-Israel agitators, says disruption ‘makes you an a–hole’

Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., ripped anti-Israel agitators who have recently blocked bridges or yelled at Starbucks employees and customers, posting a strongly worded message on X Tuesday. Fetterman responded to a video posted Sunday showing protesters with a megaphone and donning Palestinian flags and other garb entering a Starbucks in Ann Arbor, Michigan, chanting, “Starbucks, Starbucks, you can’t hide, not ‘til we free Palestine.” “I don’t know who needs to hear this, but blocking a bridge or berating folks in Starbucks isn’t righteous, it just makes you an a–hole,” Fetterman wrote. “Demand Hamas to send every hostage back home and surrender.” As hundreds of anti-Israel agitators stopped traffic in California along the Golden Gate Bridge and in Oakland on Monday, several other large protests have surfaced across the country. ANTI-ISRAEL AGITATORS SHUT DOWN TRAFFIC, DISRUPT CITIES ALL ACROSS US IN DEMAND FOR GAZA CEASEFIREIn New York City, nearly 300 protesters gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange on Monday morning.In Fetterman’s home state of Pennsylvania, dozens of protesters disrupted traffic during rush hour in Center City on Monday as they waved Palestinian flags during a teach-in, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
