Video: Frustrated Drivers Blocked on Busy Road Take Matters Into Their Own Hands and Drag Protesters Out of the Way
We have all seen these protests where leftist agitators fill roadways with demonstrators, blocking cars, and shutting down the streets. But this time, motorists in Rome were not just going to sit idly by and let their lives be disrupted by leftist demonstrators.
How many times have you watched these protests that shut down the roads and wondered why drivers don’t just get out of their cars en masse and start physically draging the screeching demonstrators out of the way?
Well, motorists in Rome did just that this month when members of the extremist climate change group Extinction Rebellion infested the Grande Raccordo Alulare — or simply the “Raccordo” — Rome’s main ring road and one of its busiest, as the U.K. Daily Mail described it.
Members of the extremist group jumped onto the busy road Thursday in rows of bodies, and sporting banners, to protest for radical climate change policies, the Daily Mail reported.
For quite some time, the protesters caused traffic backups that snaked back for miles, using the same road-blocking tactics seen all over the world — including here in the U.S.A.
Naturally, there were no police anywhere to be seen.
But, eventually, irate motorists got fed up with the nonsense and took matters into their own hands.
Drivers began to jump out of their cars and started physically dragging the mewling protesters off the road to allow traffic to resume movement, the Daily Mail reported.
Video of the incident shows one infuriated motorist ripping the banners from the hands of the protesters who were sitting cross-legged on the pavement, and then returning to the line of people and physically wresting them off the road.

So dangerous. These clowns will one day be wiped out and/or cause a major road accident and fatality.https://t.co/MAqZJPLZHFpic.twitter.com/5KRxbfkMDa

Naturally, as soon as they were dragged away, the demonstrators jumped back up and returned to sit in the road.
Still, each time enough room was made, cars began edging through the gaps in the ranks of the protesters.
The dance between the irate drivers and the disruptive
