Governor Gavin Newsom managed to hose all of the homeless encampments off the streets of San Francisco for a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, but the communist dictator might have to find a different route out of town, as pro-Hamas demonstrators have blocked the Bay Bridge.

The Bay Bridge is SHUT DOWN
Biden will not get away with genocide, Biden will not get away with staying in San Francisco without EVERYONE knowing he is supporting the slaughter in Gaza
No more genocide, ceasefire NOW pic.twitter.com/iQWWevwclA

This tactic didn’t go over well in Seattle, where the Antifa “bike brigade” stopped traffic for a pro-Hamas march. In that case, police stood by and deemed that “it is what it is.”
We are surprised to see, though, that some of the numbskulls standing in the street aren’t covering their faces, which is refreshing.
They’re apparently not deterred by the American man in Panama who shot to climate protesters blocking the road.
I bet if Xi Jinping’s motorcade had to cross the Bay Bridge it would be cleared and cleaned up instantly.

It should be illegal to shut down roadways. That is not a peaceful protest.

We’d have to consult our legal expert, Aaron Walker, but it’s tantamount to kidnapping. You’re trapped in your car and can’t go forward or backward. You’re being held hostage — but then again, these protesters don’t seem to have a problem with kidnapping.
I don’t see any police there? Do we just turnover our critical infrastructure to idiots who want to protest? If they want to march…get permission like everyone else.

Has Xi left yet? I’m sure they don’t want him to see this.

Illegally detaining people on a bridge they cannot escape from is kidnapping, a federal crime, isn’t it?
Hey, maybe I’m wrong.

Clowns. Do they think Israel will see this and say, “You know what? They have a point. I know our citizens were massacred, but these unshowered, ignorant, pampered virtue signalers are causing a traffic jam. Get Hamas on the phone.”

How does this influence anybody. It might enrage them, but that’s it.
And not a single arrest will be made

Look how many of them have an “I’m just hanging out” vibe. Slacktivism at its best.
If I got stuck in this traffic, I’d immediately oppose whatever your cause is. It’s such a stupid tactic

Just a day ago, the roads of San Francisco were lined with people flying the Chinese flag. Did anyone try to block Xi’s motorcade? If they did, they probably won’t be heard from again.
