“If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f**king thing down,” Reza Aslan, an Iranian-American and former CNN contributor who claims to be a ‘religious scholar’ tweeted.
He would later tweet in response to a statement from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who vowed to give any nominee made by Trump a vote, “Over our dead bodies. Literally.”
Writer Beau Willimon added, “We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.”
GQ reporter Laura Bassett wrote, “If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots.” She would follow that up with “*more, bigger riots” but she deleted it.
Meanwhile, a professor at the University of Waterloo tweeted: “Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS.” He then protected his account on Twitter because, in reality, obviously, he’s a coward.
Now, granted, for the most part, it would be easy to wave off the threats made by these lunatic threats as hyperbole — were it not for the fact that our country has just endured months of rioting, looting and statue-toppling violence, ostensibly in the name of a career criminal in Minneapolis who may have died a wrongful death but who certainly does not deserve sainthood. (Related: Marxist-planned ’50-day siege’ at White House, set to begin yesterday, fizzles with empty park.)
And we might be able to dismiss them if we weren’t already aware of a sinister plot by the Stalinist Democrat Left to try and steal the election in November with waves of fake mail-in ballots and endless lawsuits — many of which would ultimately wind up before the Supreme Court, making that the No. 1 reason why the president and the Senate GOP have to put a successor on the high court.
So the threats have to be taken seriously, even if the whiny, butt-hurt leftist Twitter warriors are making them from the safety of their homes and basements aren’t actually going to be the ‘heroes’ lining the streets readying for battle.
Because as we’ve seen all summer long, there are hidden forces behind the current violent protests — organizing them, funding them and, reportedly, transporting them.
There is no doubt, then, that those same ‘revolutionary’ forces will exploit the president’s next Supreme Court nomination to launch all kinds of new violence. The only good news is that the rioting will no longer be about alleged ‘police systemic racism’ or ‘Black Lives Matter’ (see how quickly the revolutionary left pivots from one issue to another, always plotting, always exploiting, always lying in wait for the next opportunity to tear the country apart?).
What the president does in response to these threats is all-important. He can’t really take them with a grain of salt, not that he has thus far. He’s been calling for “law and order,” literally, since the George Floyd incident. And in some cases he’s managed to achieve it.
Part of his response plan ought to be a mobilization of willing souls on the local level who are not afraid to put their country and their communities and their families first — above politics — in order to save the greatest nation on earth from assured self-destruction that a second civil war would create.
We cannot tolerate the perpetually angry left attacking the civil society every time they don’t get their way.
That said, 2020 cannot be over quickly enough.
