Anti-Israel agitators flood DC streets, take aim at White House Correspondent's Dinner: 'Shame on you!'

Anti-Israel agitators marched through the streets of Washington, D.C., on Saturday to protest American support of the Israeli military, taking aim at press and media members attending the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Code Pink, a left-wing activist group, organized a protest through Kalorama Park to the Washington Hilton, where the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was being held Saturday night.

On its website, the organization accuses the media of “endors[ing]” the White House’s support’s of Israel.

“The White House Correspondents’ Dinner, traditionally a symbol of journalistic integrity and freedom, has now become a platform that celebrates and endorses the administration’s actions,” Code Pink argues on its website.

“The United States media perpetuates anti-Palestinian narratives and ignores Israeli war crimes. The Correspondents’ Dinner is nothing more than a celebration and endorsement of the administration’s actions. That is not journalism. That is complicity.”

Footage shows crowds of people beating drums and yelling “Shame on you!” to the well-dressed folks walking to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, with many of the men wearing tuxes and the women wearing ballroom gowns.  

Many of the demonstrators wore keffiyehs, waved Palestinian flags or held signs lamenting the loss of human life in Gaza.

It is unknown how much the protests will impact President Biden, who was expected to leave the White House at around 7 p.m. 

He will take the stage at the dinner at around 8 p.m., and is expected to make remarks later Saturday night.
