Another “animal rights protester” began shouting at Hillary Clinton today in Des Moines, and again, Secret Service agents rushed onto the stage.
While the Clinton campaign will surely try to blame Donald Trump for fomenting the incident, the far-left “Direct Action Everywhere” is claiming credit.
“While Clinton rallied the crowd at Lincoln High School, activists emerged from the crowd and climbed over the barricades around the stage with signs declaring ‘Get Big Ag Out of Politics,'” the group’s news release says.
They released this video of a woman shouting “Animal liberation now!” they say was taken by an activist:

The group identified her as 26-year-old Kelsey Atkinson, according to The Independent.
“Hillary is taking a huge amount of money from companies like Costco, and when government money goes back to their suppliers, it raises serious questions about undue influence,” she said in a statement.
“If we’re serious about animal protection, we need to stop funding animal torture and start the process of abolishing the systems that exploit them.”
Her social media activity shows the San Francisco resident is an apparent Bernie Sanders supporter.
Here’s a shot of her Facebook page likes:
Her Twitter feed shows she shared many articles and posts with positive information about the socialist senator.
