Protesters dressed in Nazi garb interrupted a free-speech panel featuring conservative pundit Ann Coulter — who was set to discuss censorship on campus — at the Politicon convention in Pasadena, California, over the weekend.

“Our Nazi leader! Our Nazi leader!” one of the protesters was heard shouting on video. In a separate clip she also was heard yelling, "Heil, Trump!" while giving the Nazi salute while accompanied by a similarly dressed man.

Think the capacity crowd of political junkies was going to put up with it? Heil no.

The protesters were drowned out by chants of "USA! USA! USA!" and "Trump! Trump! Trump!" as the pair were led away.

But it didn't end there.

Another couple began shouting “Trump, Pence must go!” KCAL-TV reported. And like the first pair of interlopers, the station said they were drowned out by the crowd reprising its “Trump! Trump!” chant before getting the hook from security.

CNN's Jake Tapper weighed in on the action and made his stance clear:

Coulter has recent personal experience with the free speech crisis on college campuses. She had been set to speak this spring at the University of California, Berkeley — where left-wing protesters previously rioted over the prospect of conservative views being publicly aired — but Coulter canceled her speech due to lack of security and support.

“I think our First Amendment is under attack right now,” he told the station.
