Far-left protesters who were upset at Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona over her opposition to provisions of President Joe Biden’s spending bill disrupted a recent wedding and sent the mother of the bride into tears.
The Associated Press reported that Sinema officiated a wedding in Phoenix last weekend. But what should have been a day to remember became a nightmare that those who exchanged vows probably would rather forget.
Protesters outside of the wedding venue were so loud that the bride’s mother came out to plead with them to quiet down. Video of the incident has gone viral on social media:

“Could you just go down to the corner for an hour?” said a woman in tears. “It’s my daughter’s wedding.”
“Just let her get married, please. (Sen. Sinema) is not my daughter. My daughter is getting married. … I don’t disagree … with your rights. It’s my daughter’s wedding.”
“You tell her we don’t like what she’s doing to our country!” shouted a woman wearing a face mask.
The demonstrators were not receptive to the mother’s request about not disrupting the day.
“Shame, shame shame!” some shouted, while one person told the woman in tears to “throw her out” with regard to Sinema.
Another man told the mother, “We’ll leave if (Sinema) leaves.”
The wedding crashing is just the latest instance of Sinema being harassed publicly over her refusal to fold to her party’s far left wing. Democrats had hoped for a $3.5 trillion spending package. The package focuses heavily on social services and climate change.
Earlier this month, demonstrators followed Sinema into a restroom at Arizona State University to scream at her.

After that incident, Sinema later was hectored on an airplane:

So far, the senator has not caved to pressure from demonstrators and others. Both Sinema and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia are holdouts to pushing through Biden’s agenda. Democrats have scaled back expectations to spend the $3.5 trillion and now are pushing a $1.75 trillion spending bill, NBC News reported.
Despite reducing the cost of Biden’s Build Back Better bill, Democrats are at an impasse with regard to advancing it to the president’s desk.
