Conservative activist Kaitlin Bennett was escorted away by police after she tried to interrupt a liberal speaker.

The incident, which was caught on video, appeared to take place in Houston prior to last week’s Democratic presidential debate. The video was later posted online by The Blaze’s Elijah Schaffer, who was sympathetic to the right-wing heckler.

The video shows a speaker, who is black, talking about systemic racism.

“They have found ways to cage our babies, separate families, mistreat and abuse us,” the woman says before she was interrupted by Bennett.

“What about abortion?” Bennett exclaims.

“A black woman is speaking,” the crowd informs Bennett, who is white. “The queen is speaking.”

“You need to go,” one person warns.

As the conservative activist begins arguing with onlookers, Houston police approach and pull her away. The officers appear to inform Bennett that she must stay in the area designated for her group.

“I want everybody to take a look over here,” the speaker announces, pointing out Bennett. “This is what happens.”

“F*ck the white girl,” someone in the crowd shouts.

“Get your ass the f*ck on,” another person says.

Bennett later shared the video with her Twitter followers as badge of honor.

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper on Wednesday seemed to be at odds with President Donald Trump when it comes to invoking the Insurrection Act to quell protests over the killing of George Floyd.

Esper explained at a press conference that members of the National Guard had been deployed to keep order "in support of local law enforcement."

"The option to use active duty forces should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations," he explained. "We are not in one of those situations now."

"I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act," Esper insisted, referencing Trump's threat to use the law against protesters.

“If they don’t get their act straightened out I will solve it. I’ll solve it fast,” he said.

The president also pushed back against the narrative that he was "hiding in a White House bunker" as protesters demonstrated outside.

"They said it would be a good time to go down and take a look because maybe sometime you’re going to need it," the president said, adding that the visit was more of an "inspection."
