NO RESPECT: ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ rabble break up awards ceremony for 100-year-old WWII veteran

Chaos erupted Saturday when more than 100 protesters stormed an Oregon town hall meeting being held by Democratic U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, resulting in the event being canceled.

Chanting “I can’t breathe” and “hands up, don’t shoot,” the protesters were joined by $15 Now! minimum wage activists as they forced their way into the Portland Community College venue.

Laughing at Liberals posted a video that captured an activist threatening to punch a public safety officer who was trying to shut the doors as the unruly mob pushed its way in.

“I’ll break your jaw, old man!” the protester told the officer.

The Oregonian reported that Wyden managed to silence the protesters long enough to introduce 100-year-old World War II Navy veteran Dario Raschio, who was being awarded several medals for heroism.

“Give me a chance,” Raschio asked, when protesters began shouting from the back of the room as he spoke, according to the Oregonian. “Let’s show a little respect for this occasion.”

Surprisingly, the otherwise disrespectful activists briefly yielded to the former pilot who crashed his plane into the Pacific on Easter Sunday, 1944.

As soon as Raschio had finished, the protesters began shouting again, even mimicking the tactics employed by the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The Oregonian reported that once it became clear the protesters had no intention of allowing proceedings to go forward, the event was canceled.
