Josh Hawley says Code Pink ‘astroturf wackos’ need to be called out

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) argued that Code Pink protesters need to be reminded that they are financially backed by China amid their protesting for the Hamas terrorist groups.

Footage of Hawley being confronted by protesters from Code Pink, a left-wing feminist antiwar organization, went viral on social media on Wednesday, during which the Missouri senator informed them how the group is backed by China amid the country’s human rights violations against Uyghurs. Hawley argued that the protesters confronted him over his support for Israel, and that he enjoyed the exchange that he had with them.

“These are people that can’t even admit that the Uyghurs are in internment camps, concentration camps, and yet they say that Israel is a terrorist state?” Hawley said on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle. “Give me a break! It is astroturf whackos is what these people are, and it’s time they got called out.”

Hawley also argued that “globalist billionaires” are backing President Joe Biden in his 2024 reelection bid because they are betting on the demise of the United States, making the U.S. poorer and China richer. He also accused these billionaires of sending U.S. jobs overseas, and that Biden’s policies are “bankrupting” the country.

“It’s bankrupting this country and destroying the working class of this country,” Hawley said. “They know Donald Trump will stop it. That’s why they oppose him.”


Hawley’s comments on Biden’s policies hurting the middle class mirrors what Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said earlier this week, who predicted that former President Donald Trump can count on the working class vote ahead of the November elections.

The confrontation Hawley experienced is one that many lawmakers, including many Democrats, have faced amid Israel’s conflict in Gaza with Hamas. Biden stated Wednesday that it is now up to the terrorist group to accept the current ceasefire proposal.
