GOP Congressman Slams Ayanna and Her Call for Unrest: She's 'Carrying the Water for Anarchists Looting and Robbing'

Republican Georgia Rep. Doug Collins thinks Rep. Ayanna Pressley is making things more violent in America.

That’s my interpretation, at least, of his comments on Fox & Friends Monday.

In case you missed it, as reported by RedState’s Bonchie over the weekend, Pressley said this to MSNBC’s Am Joy:

“I’m looking to the public. This is as much about public outcry and organizing and mobilizing and applying pressure so that this GOP-led Senate, and that these governors that continue to carry water for this administration, putting the American people in harm’s way, turning a deaf ear to the needs of our families and our communities, hold ’em accountable. Make the phone calls, send the emails, show up. “You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives, and unfortunately, there’s plenty to go around.”

Bonchie was thought it was doggone daring:

Apparently, only Donald Trump can use “dog whistles,” because Rep. Ayanna Pressley used a pretty big one this morning to the collective shrugs of the mainstream media. I’m not even sure it qualifies as a dog whistle, given it’s a fairly direct call to action. It’s more like a dog shout.

To Rep. Doug, her message was “highly irresponsible.”

And it’s a threat to public safety:

“Those comments are just fanning the flames of what we’re seeing,” Collins continued, “we had officers hurt last night again in Seattle. Do you know who she’s carrying the water for? She’s carrying the water for anarchists looting and robbing and going through our cities. She’s carrying the water for those who want to defund and disrespect our police.”


Allow me to add context…this is the kind of “unrest” we’re seeing as of late — it doesn’t count as “rest” just because someone goes unconscious (Language and Brutal Violence Warning):

Is that what we need more of?

According to Doug, Ayanna wants “to take away our police and security.”

He sees the Massachusetts Democrat’s position as endemic of the greater group:

“I think that shows exactly what they want to do, they want to keep everything up in the air because they want to get at this election and they want to blame it all on Donald Trump.”

As for things being kept in the air, the condition of America’s streets isn’t likely to remain for long. It’s going to either get better because it stops, or better because it continues and is made to stop. The latter will come courtesy of things, for a time, getting worse.

Here’s how Bonchie put it:

Something has to give or the only possible outcome is going to be more violence. People are not going to sit idly by forever as others block streets, threaten their families, and lay siege to their homes and neighborhoods.


It seems to me we’re in a really bad place when any official — for any reason — calls for “unrest in the streets.”

That’s the exact opposite of what we need.

Why in the world is such violence being allowed?

Given the looming nature of November, perhaps some Democrats want continued disorder that can be blamed on the sitting president. But what good is it to elect their “best” leader for America, if America has ceased to exist?

The videos above — and so much that we’ve seen over the past few months — isn’t America.

We must ensure it’s never allowed to be.
