Three “Recall Gavin Newsom” activists launched a threatening tirade against lawmakers during a budget review hearing in California on Thursday and harassed another official, declaring “we didn’t buy guns for nothing!”
The three women made the incendiary remarks at a session on the Sacramento governor’s 2021-22 budget at the city’s Capitol.
In video footage, the activists are seen taking turns to address lawmakers, pedalling conspiracy theories and making comments supporting the anti-vaccine movement.
One woman, wearing a Stars and Stripes facemask, was holding a board with a sticker on it calling for the removal of California Governor Gavin Newsom. In her speech directed at officials, the unidentified woman also criticised California State Senator Richard Pan, who has previously faced death threats for authoring one of the toughest pro-vaccine laws in the country.
