Conservatives are furious at Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot after she sent a fiery tweet in response to the leaked Supreme Court decision to end Roe v Wade.
As protests have raged outside of the homes of some of the conservative members of the Supreme Court, and as Catholic churches have been vandalized, the embattled Chicago mayor issued a “call to arms.”
“To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community—the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms,” she said in a tweet.
“We will not surrender our rights without a fight—a fight to victory!” she said.
Conservatives were quick to respond.
“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…,” Tim Young said.
“You hate the Second Amendment and firearms. How you gonna fight?” Beth Baumann said.
“This is absolute bullsh*t @LoriLightfoot and you know it. The court made that very clear in its ‘leaked’ opinion. You should be arrested for calling for the murder of Americans. LIAR,” Monica Matthews said.
“Alright @Twitter time to remove Lori Lightfoot. Those are the rules,” conservative band Five Times August argued.
“A ‘call to arms’ says the Mayor of Murder Capital USA,” conservative radio host Erick Erickson said.
“If a Republican mayor did this, CNN’s John Avlon and Brianna Keilar and Don Lemon would be make snarky faces into the camera with some hushed tones about what dangerous rhetoric the right is perpetuating,” NewsBusters editor Curtis Houck argued.
“She knows exactly what she’s doing with this. And she knows she’ll get away with it because she’s a Democrat,” Matt Whitlock said.
“The Mayor of Chicago is preparing for a civil war. I want to reiterate, we in India are watching the situation closely. We appeal that both sides de-escalate. I’m sure our leaders would be happy to mediate and re-establish the rule of law over there,” author Ajit Datta said.
“Lori Lightfoot advocates for an insurrection after SCOTUS leak,” Breitbart reporter Wendell Husebo said.
