‘YOU’RE A DIRTBAG’: Upset Americans Heckle Democrat Al Green As He Boards Connecting Flight
As seems to be becoming a regular occurrence in the post-Trump world, video has surfaced of upset Americans heckling Rep. All Green (D-TX) as he attempted to board a connecting flight back to Texas.
“Four more years, guys. Four more years, patriots,” said one woman. “You are a dirtbag,” she added, as more began chanting “traitor.”
“You’re a traitor, you are a traitor, you are a disgrace to this country.”
It appears security began confronting the group of hecklers, as the woman is last heard saying “I’m not doing anything” before the clip ends.
“Congressman Al Green heading towards his connecting flight,” wrote the Twitter user who uploaded the video. “The whole plane was shouting ‘four more years’ as they got off the plane. One woman called him a traitor.”

This comes as similar videos show Americans heckling Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for their perceived betrayal of President Donald Trump and his 74 million voters.
A large group of people confronted Graham in an airport in Washington, D.C.
As National File reported, one shouted “Lindsey Graham, you are a traitor to the country.”
She continued, “You knew it was rigged! You know it was rigged. You garbage human being. It’s going to be like this forever, wherever you go for the rest of your life,” as the crowd surrounded Graham.

Before the January 6 betrayal, when Romney had repeatedly stated he will side with Democrats and surrender the White House to Joe Biden without so much as the pretense of a political fight, Romney encountered a plane full of pro-Trump protesters traveling to D.C.
“You know what we think!” a passenger yelled. The plane’s cabin then erupted with “Traitor! Traitor! Traitor! Traitor!” while Romney hunched over in his seat in a submissive posture and stared at his lap.
“Resign, Mitt!” another person yelled. “We want to know your connection to Burisma and Joe Biden. Mitt Romney, your constituents want to know why you are trying (indistinguishable)… certify the electoral college. Mitt Romney, you don’t listen to your constituents.”
While this frenetic video appears to have been deleted by Twitter, another video of Romney being confronted before boarding the plane has surfaced.
The way Mitt Romney handles this encounter, and respectfully but firmly continues to answer this woman’s questions, when she frankly doesn’t deserve his attention or time, gives me a little respect for him…

This comes years after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged Democrats to “push back on” members of the Trump administration and Republicans, instructing them to tell Republicans that “they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
