Protesters increased in their aggressive demonstrations on Capitol Hill after Senator Susan Collins (R-Mass.) pushed the Kavanaugh confirmation over the top Friday.
Several instances of the aggressive tactics by angry and frustrated protesters were caught on video and shared on social media.
Protesters drowned out Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) while he was trying to speak to reporters with chants of "shame on you! Shame on you! Shame on you!" Manchin was the only Democrat to indicate that he would vote positively to confirm Kavanaugh.
Reporters also seemed annoyed by the intrusive demonstrators.
Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana posted video of protesters harassing him as he went to the Kavanaugh vote. One woman can be seen being dragged away by a policeman, and another shouts at him while holding a baby.

"This is what the U.S. Capitol was like today as I walked to the Senate floor for the vote on Judge Kavanaugh," Kennedy tweeted.
Many demonstrators were targeting Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who had asked for the Kavanaugh vote to be postponed in order to allow for an FBI investigation.

There was also a human wall against misogyny composed of statements by President Donald Trump.
In front of the Capitol—barricaded in a somewhat unprecedented measure—is BrickXBrick, a group dedicated to building human walls in protest of acts of misogyny. Their outfits include quotations from President Trump that degrade women. pic.twitter.com/p252YcwDpW— Kara Voght (@karavoght) October 5, 2018
Protesters were also assembled and arrested from in front of the Supreme Court:
