So sorry that this happened. Next time report and then, ideally, get lawyer. This is sadly common. It should not matter that they did not have sound. Very well could constitute illegal hostile work environment.

Arguably it's not. In fact, a union is suing the federal government arguing that it is a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. They won a similar lawsuit in 2013

Good point. Actually, federal workers cannot strike under under the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947.

If you report and that happens, it could be considered illegal retaliation if you are moved to a less desirable work location. If you report and company tries to remove you, you'd want to raise the fact that you are the one being punished. Could get them to back off. Yes, they should move the wrongdoer before they move you

Absolutely. It will also show how much the federal government plays a role in the private sector. All kinds of private businesses will be affected. Certainly government contractors, but other industries - like oil and gas exploration which relies on permits from the Bureau of Land Management - will be hurt, as will their employees.
