The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has brought with it Democrats saying the Senate shouldn’t vote on a SCOTUS nominee until after the election, while Sen. Mitch McConnell has said “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
With that, GQ political columnist Laura Bassett, who questioned a system of government that made an 87-year-old woman undergoing chemo feel compelled to keep working as a Supreme Court justice in order to hold fascism at bay, says riots are on the way. Well, more riots:
If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots.

There was an addendum to the riot threat, but it disappeared:

Maybe the rioters will have to start wearing jerseys indicating which “cause” they’re rioting for.
If McConnell follows the constitutional process, we in the media will encourage riots, which our base will then execute.
Yes, we know. https://t.co/pBDB8VMPiL

You're going to riot regardless of what does and does not happen with SCOTUS and the election. We get it. You're a Democrat activist, it's all you do. Threat, riot, threat, riot, etc. https://t.co/1aS4YKa7Pn

Meanwhile, former CNN contributor Reza Aslan tweeted last night that if Trump and the Republicans attempt to fill the SCOTUS opening before the election “we burn the entire f***ing thing down.” So yeah, the Left’s handling it all really well.
