Climate activists decided to make it a miserable Fourth of July celebration as they marched onto the inner loop of Interstate 495 located just outside of Washington, D.C., for a protest. Because hey, why celebrate how awesome America is on her birthday when you can take to the streets and complain about how much the country sucks and ruin everyone else’s fun while you’re at it?
It was just after noon when local police were contacted about a group of individuals sitting on the Beltway blocking all lanes. If there’s one thing the left is good at it, it’s being a pain in the keister.

According to a report published by The Daily Wire, Maryland State Police ended up arresting 14 individuals who were involved in the protest. They were charged with disturbing the peace and for failure to obey a lawful order.
Not long after, things got violent. Four protesters were then charged with resisting arrest while one counter-protester was slapped with a charge of second-degree assault and resisting arrest.
The group that was responsible for the protest, Declare Emergency, put out a statement saying, “A group of ordinary concerned citizens has blocked the inner loop of the Capital Beltway in an act of civil resistance. Their demand is for President Biden to immediately declare a national state of climate emergency. Today there were almost two dozen Declare Emergency campaign supporters on the road, coming from as far away as Oregon, Washington and Florida to make their voices heard here in DC/MD/VA area.”

Oh, but there were other liberal groups around the country trying to bash on the good old US of A. A motley crew of pro-abortion fanatics gathered at the Michigan state capitol to complain about the fact that abortion is not a constitutional right. Because apparently, these people seem to think they have some sort of right to kill unborn children, which is sickening to say the least.
“The 4th of July parade in Downtown Lansing ended shortly after it started when pro-choice protesters blocked the parade from continuing,” the local NBC affiliate went on to say in their report. “The parade started at the left of the State Capitol building but was stopped by protesters as soon as they turned to the front of the building.”
Andy Schor, the mayor of Lansing, spoke with the station where he said that “he supported the protest but was disappointed that the parade ended.”

“And some activists protesting against big oil took their lives into their own hands when they stormed onto the track of a Formula One race, on which speeds top 200 mph,” the Daily Wire reported.
The protesters then invaded the track located at the British race shortly after a major crash drew out a red flag.
“The protesters were dragged away by marshals as drivers sped by, with Northamptonshire Police later confirming seven arrests had been made before the race resumed after over a 50-minute delay,” Sky Sports said in a report on the incident.
“Totally irresponsible,” Formula One CEO Stefano Domenicali said in a comment to Sky Sports. “People can protest something by voice, but running the risk on a track, jeopardizing and having the really serious stuff for the drivers and themselves is totally stupid. This is not acceptable, you can protest whatever you want, there is freedom to speak, but this is really ridiculous.”

I think the message here is that liberals are absolutely no fun. In fact, they seem content to be the kind of people who not only hate participating in fun — fun that doesn’t involve some wild perversion or something of that nature — but who also hate to see anyone else having a good time.
Just loosen up, folks.
