Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) called for the targeting of Republican lawmakers and unrest in the streets during an interview on MSDNC.
“There needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there is unrest in our lives,” she said.
Invoking the call of Maxine Waters and other Democrats – she called on her followers to absolutely harass Republicans and other supporters of President Trump.
“This is as much about public outcry, organizing and mobilizing and applying pressure 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,” she said.
“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.”
Fox News reporter Brie Stimson was one of the Mainstream Media journalists who questioned whether or not Pressley was making a threat.
“There was no indication Pressley necessarily meant anything other than peaceful protest. However, critics on social media accused her of condoning lawlessness,” the reporter wrote in her “news” story.
