Suggested the public target GOP officials who are continue to “carry water” for the Trump administration
During an interview on MSNBC, Democrat Rep. and “squad” member Ayanna Pressley suggested the public target GOP officials who are continue to “carry water” for the Trump administration and further suggested “there should be unrest in the streets as long as there’s unrest in our lives.”
Is that not literally incitement?

Rep. Pressley could’ve meant peaceful protest, but “unrest” and “peaceful protest” (as characterized by Democrats and the media) are certainly not peaceful these days.
More from Fox News:
There should be “unrest in the streets” over President Trump and his political allies turning a “deaf ear” to Americans’ concerns, including those about the “dismantling” of the U.S. Postal Service — which amounts to voter suppression, U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., said Friday.
Conservatives on Twitter quickly condemned Pressley’s remarks as “unhinged,” “horrible” and “disgusting.”
Pressley made her remarks Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.”
“This is as much about public outcry, organizing and mobilizing and applying pressure,” Pressley said, after mentioning steps Democratic lawmakers can take, “so that this GOP-led Senate and these governors that continue to carry water for this administration, putting American people in harm’s way, turning a deaf ear to the needs of our families and our communities – hold them accountable.
“Make the phone calls, send the emails, show up,” she continued. “You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives.”
Pressley’s comments followed months of protests and rioting in cities across the U.S., over racial injustice — though critics, including police, have claimed that some participants have been destructive simply because of opportunism.
Pressley also called on Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, whom the Postal Service Board of Governors appointed in May, to resign for “corruption” over his restructuring of the Postal Service. At the “bare minimum,” she said, DeJoy should appear before the House Oversight Committee.
I’m struggling to understand how people are falling for the postal service hoax. It’s a shallow and obvious as any talking point ever was. See our previous coverage:
