Democrats are irate over the leaked draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.
Things have reached such a fever pitch Justice Alito was forced to take his family into hiding.
Now Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is inciting violence against Supreme Court Justices with these four words.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued a tweet calling on “friends in the LGBTQ+ community” to recognize this moment as “a call to arms.”
Lightfoot said, “To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community — the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms. We will not surrender our rights without a fight— a fight to victory!”
To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community—the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms.

Lightfoot’s tweet comes as Democrats have been filled with rage ever since the leak of a memo indicating the Supreme Court is poised to overturn the Roe v. Wade abortion ruling.
In an interview on far-left MSNBC, the Mayor said, “I think everybody who saw that draft opinion has gone through a range of different emotions. And that’s why I’m calling upon fellow elected officials across the country, and particularly my fellow mayors to join me in making a pledge that we made today, which is a justice for all pledge. And fundamentally, it reaffirms Chicago as a welcoming city, a city that doesn’t discriminate, and a city that’s going to stand with women.”
One Twitter user wrote, “The Mayor of the most violent city in America is here to worry about woke nonsense instead of people literally dying in the streets there,” nodding to the fact that Chicago has turned into a crime-infested hellscape under the Mayor’s “leadership” with 194 murders in 2022 so far, with police reporting overall crime up 35%.
Fearful that protests from the pro-abortion rioters alone might not be enough to sway the Supreme Court to see things her way, Lightfoot decided to enlist more help from other corners of the far-left by insinuating that SCOTUS could potentially take a sledgehammer to other causes she holds dear.
“This includes women’s rights, trans rights, immigrant rights and of course the right to same-sex and interracial marriage. We simply cannot stand idly by and let that happen,” Lightfoot said.
Lightfoot, and her ilk have not been and will not be banned from social media for her agitation in yet one more example of Big Tech looking the other way when leftists do things considered to be unacceptable from the Right.
Apparently it’s OK to incite violence on Twitter just so long as it’s for the right cause and against the right people.
