'Insurrection' Trends After Hysterical Democrats at Long Last Get Hoist by Their Own Petard

Ever since the Capitol riot, Democrats, the media, and of course ankle-biting Never Trumpers desperate for a perma-gig on MSNBC have tried to portray what happened on Jan. 6th, 2021 as an “insurrection” coordinated and signed off on at the highest echelons of power in America.


There is no evidence to support such sensational claims, not about it being an “insurrection,” not about it being planned by powerful Republicans, none of it. In fact, what we know so far suggests a ragtag bunch that unfortunately took advantage of an opportunity to storm the Capitol building on the same day then-President Trump held a rally urging supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard” regarding their concerns about the presidential election results.

Nevertheless, the accusations continue to be made as the farcical Capitol riot “investigation” by the Jan. 6th Committee continues to play out despite the fact that it has not been the political election-year game-changer Democrats had planned for it to be.

While opinions between Republicans and Democrats vary as to what an “insurrection” actually means, if we go by what appears to be the left’s definition, it would seem that’s exactly what they’ve been calling for in the aftermath of the blockbuster report from Politico about the draft majority opinion from SCOTUS in which Justice Samuel Alito wrote in response to the Mississippi pro-life case currently before the court that “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.”

We documented late Monday several instances of prominent Twitter blue checks on the left calling for, in so many words, total war in response to the story, similar to their hysterical reactions to the news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death in September 2020.


For instance, Vox.com senior correspondent Ian Millhiser tweeted “Seriously, shout out to whoever the hero was within the Supreme Court who said ‘f*ck it! Let’s burn this place down.'”

“Progressive pastor” John Pavlovitz wrote “This is war.”

Agitators who the media will soon be calling “peaceful protesters” were screaming their heads off behind barricades just feet away from the steps of the Supreme Court building in scenes reminiscent of the brutal Supreme Court confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh, where at one point we saw radical leftists pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court to stop Kavanaugh from being sworn in.

But it’s not just random leftists in Washington, D.C. and the verified ones on Twitter who are whipping the outrage mobs into a frenzy – it’s powerful elected officials on the left and those who want to be who are using similar and in some cases worse language, language that if the words were coming from a Republican we’d have 24-7 wall to wall coverage for weeks on end about how Republicans were “inciting” folks to riot.

Here’s a screengrabbed version of a tweet from California Gov. Gavin Newsom calling on folks to “fight like hell”:


Independent journalist Andy Ngo caught DeSantis hater, moonbat Democrat and current candidate for Florida Attorney General Daniel Uhlfelder of “Grim Reaper” infamy calling for “revolution”:

As a result of calls to action like that and similar ones like it, conservatives were quick to put the label “insurrection” on it, causing the word to trend on Twitter for hours as liberals got hoist by their own petard.

After all, we elect presidents. Presidents get to nominate Supreme Court justices. The Senate has a very important “advise and consent” role in the process. When the Supreme Court decides a case, that’s the final word regardless of whether someone likes it or not (at least until the next court case presents itself on down the line). If Democrats are going to “fight like hell” and “revolt” against the Supreme Court assuming the draft majority opinion holds, doesn’t that amount to an insurrection, after all?

Just askin’.
