The Left’s mob has finally turned on them. Now Biden can’t even leave his house.
And a shocking attack on Joe Biden left the White House under siege.
Thousands of Palestinian supporters gathered in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to urge a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas conflict. However, the demonstration erupted into a violent clash with law enforcement, causing damage to the White House fence.
Pro-Palestinian protesters took part in the March on Washington for Gaza, which called for “an immediate ceasefire, an end to U.S. military funding to Israel, and the lifting of the siege on Gaza.”
Protesters carried Palestinian flags and chanted anti-President Joe Biden slogans. Protesters brandished signs reading, “Genocide Joe has got to go” and “Biden has blood on his hands.”
“F*** Joe Biden!” yelled the audience. Demonstrators tossed dozens of bloodied baby dolls over the White House fence.

However, the rally turned violent when supporters of Palestine threw objects at law officers defending the White House. The mob also reportedly broke the security fence in front of the White House, requiring Secret Service agents to respond in riot gear to try to calm the situation.
On the X social media site, video journalist Julio Rosas commented, “DC police and Secret Service had to rush to one part of the security fence to prevent a breach from the Palestinian crowd.”
Wid Lyman, a field reporter, wrote: “Protesters have breached the reinforced gate and riot police have confronted them – other protesters began scaling the fence.”
Some demonstrators near the barricade could be heard yelling, “Break it down!”
Staff at the White House and journalists were “relocated” during the escalation.
The U.S. Secret Service told Fox News, “During the demonstration near the White House complex Jan. 13, a portion of the anti-scale fencing that was erected for the event sustained temporary damage. The issues were promptly repaired on site by U.S. Secret Service support teams.”

“As a precaution, some members of the media and staff in proximity to Pennsylvania Avenue were temporarily relocated while the issue was being addressed,” the message went on to say. “The Secret Service made no arrests associated with the march and there was no property damage to the White House or adjacent buildings.”
Metropolitan Police Department Chief Pamela Smith said in a statement, “The right to peacefully protest is one of the cornerstones of our democracy, and the Metropolitan Police Department has long supported those who visit our city to demonstrate safely. However, violence, destructive behavior, and criminal activities are not tolerated.”
“While a majority of today’s demonstration remained peaceful, there were instances of illegal and destructive behavior in Lafayette Park, including items being thrown at our officers,” Smith added. “We are supporting our partners at the United States Park Police as they investigate and hold those found responsible accountable for their actions.”
Of course, the same old tired “mostly peaceful” protests. We’ve heard that before.
Authorities prepared for potential disturbances in the capital by erecting an additional fence around the White House before Saturday.
