Poetic OWSers shout down Bachmann speech

News

In what was sure to make Kanye West proud, OWSers hijacked Michele Bachmann's foreign policy speech in South Carolina on Thursday. As Bachmann was talking, roughly 20 protesters drowned her out with a bit of a poem, according to MSNBC:

The protesters, who read from a script, used the "human megaphone" technique as they shouted, "This will only take a minute... You capitalize on dividing Americans / claiming people that disagree with you / are unpatriotic socialists / and you promote discrimination."

Bachmann was escorted off stage for about 10 minutes before returning. "Don't you love the First Amendment?" she said.
