Well, that didn’t take too long, did it? As my colleague Sister Toldjah reported, mere hours after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was announced, progressives on Twitter and other social media platforms had a collective meltdown in response to the reality that that mean guy in the Oval Office might be appointing another justice to the highest court in the land. 

True to form, they took to Twitter to express their holy outrage at the thought of having another justice who isn’t a rabid progressive take Ginsburg’s place. Some of these intrepid individuals have taken action that only the bravest of us could even consider: Going on Twitter and calling for political violence from the comfort of their home.

Dr. Jessie Christensen, an Australian astrophysicist, claimed that he would riot if President Trump and Republican members of the Senate push to confirm an appointment. “IF THEY RAM THROUGH AN APPOINTMENT IN THE NEXT TWO MONTHS I WILL RIOT. This is an actual nightmare,” he tweeted.

Former CNN contributor Reza Aslan expressed similar sentiments. “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f*cking thing down,” he threatened.


Progressive writer Laura Bassett also weighed in on the matter, claiming that more riots will ensue if the left doesn’t get its way. “If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots,” she tweeted.

Author Beau Willimon also joined in. “We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election,” he tweeted.

But isn’t this another case of a dog’s bark being bigger than its bite? Does anyone actually believe that these people will even engage in violence? Apparently not. At least one Twitter user pointed out the obvious: 



He’s right. None of these people will participate in any of the violence they hope to incite with their social media platforms. If there is more rioting and looting, it’ll be done by Antifa peons acting out their faux angst. After all, it’s past the point of them pretending they are rioting for George Floyd, right? What better excuse can they use than to act like they are upset about another Supreme Court seat going to a conservative-leaning judge? 


But the reality is that these threats of violence are about as useless as a life preserver in a kiddie pool. Why? Because these thugs are going to riot and loot no matter what. It’s not as if they really need an excuse. Their agenda has nothing to do with black lives or Supreme Court appointments. 

These people want to burn the entire system down and remake the United States government in their Marxist image, not influence policy. So they couldn’t care less about Ginsburg’s seat. The fact of the matter is the violence will continue as long as governors and mayors allow it to happen.
