Rep. Michele Bachmann's speech was interrupted Thursday by a group of chanting protesters who were reportedly part of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Bachmann was giving a foreign policy speech on the USS Yorktown in South Carolina Thursday when the group began call-and-response chanting.

"Mike check. This will only take a minute. We have a message for Ms. Bachmann," the protesters said, according to video from the event.

Bachmann's supporters began yelling back to "sit down," and eventually the Minnesota Republican was escorted off the stage by a police officer.

MSNBC said that Bachmann returned to the stage minutes later, saying: "Don't you love the First Amendment?"
