While giving a speech at The Heritage Foundation, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) was interrupted by a heckler on Thursday who shouted that China was not the true enemy of the United States. However, the heckler was laughed off the stage and was unable to disrupt the senator's speech.
In his speech, Hawley identified communist China as the most significant threat to American national security and advocated that the nation's primary foreign policy objective should be to prevent China from seizing Taiwan. He claimed that the most effective approach to achieve this goal would be to avoid blindly sending resources to Ukraine.
“I’m not in favor of blank checks to anybody. So I’m not here to tell you that I don’t favor blank checks to Ukraine, but I do favor them to Taiwan. No, quite the contrary,” Hawley explained. “My view is we have got to help the Taiwanese defend themselves. We should be arming and supporting the Taiwanese but on the condition that they spend on their own defense, that they embrace an asymmetric defense strategy, and that they go all in on the defense of their island and prepare to defend it from any potential Chinese invasion.”
While the senator from Missouri was delivering his speech, a woman entered the stage beside him, unfolded a large poster that said, "People & Planet, not War & Aggression," and started shouting over him. She contended that China was not as significant a threat as climate change.

“We spend over $1 trillion every year, and the state — your state of Missouri — over half the people are in poverty,” the protester said as she was approached by security and escorted away.
“China is not our enemy,” she yelled. “The climate crisis is! We need to be this serious about the climate crisis!”
As she was escorted out of the room, the audience chuckled while she continued to shout about military expenditure and how she believed the funds should be allocated toward combating climate change instead.
After the protester was removed, Hawley promptly resumed his speech, using the lone protester's objections as a segue to reinforce his position and simultaneously criticize the Biden administration.

I acknowledge that my joke about her politics and appearance was in poor taste and regret it deeply. I understand that it was wrong and I should have known better. I humbly ask for forgiveness."
