There should be "unrest in the streets"over President Trump and his political allies turning a "deaf ear" to Americans' concerns, including those about the "dismantling" of the U.S. Postal Service -- which amounts to voter suppression, U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., said Friday.
Conservatives on Twitter quickly condemned Pressley's remarks as "unhinged," "horrible" and "disgusting."
Pressley made her remarks Saturday on MSNBC's "AM Joy."
"This is as much about public outcry, organizing and mobilizing and applying pressure," Pressley said, after mentioning steps Democratic lawmakers can take, "so that this GOP-led Senate and these governors that continue to carry water for this administration, putting American people in harm's way, turning a deaf ear to the needs of our families and our communities - hold them accountable.
"Make the phone calls, send the emails, show up," she continued. "You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there's unrest in our lives."
There was no indication Pressley necessarily meant anything other than peaceful protest. However, critics on social media accused her of condoning lawlessness.
Trump should have Barr arrest her on conspiracy and domestic terrorism charges. Now she can have all of the unrest she needs while sitting in federal jail. Dumb bald-headed bitch. Look at how looney and far left this idiot has become. It's like she's turned into a feminist misandric Sith Lord.
