Last night as she stood beside Chuck Schumer, AOC basically said the world is going to end of Republicans put another judge on the Supreme Court:

AOC is hysterical. She claims that everything from ‘reproductive rights’ to labor rights to healthcare and the climate are “on the line”. She adds in voting rights too, and calls for an unprecedented mobilization of people against an ‘early’ nomination.
She also tells McConnell, while standing beside Schumer, that he’s playing with FIRE:

Here’s AOC telling her constituents they need to be ‘reaaa-dy’ to be ‘responsive’:

To be clear she doesn’t explicitly call for anything more than calling Senators, but this kind of unhinged rhetoric is only going to end in more riots, more businesses looted and destroyed and more people killed. But Democrats don’t really care as long as it stops the nomination process. Whatever it takes!
But they should care because it’s one of the biggest reasons more Democrats are jumping on the Trump train. I just hope that Trump is willing to use the insurrection act in the event that we have riots all over the country, which seems likely given the toxic environment Democrats have created. It’s what a law and order president would do.
