Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., called out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., for their aggressive rhetoric following Friday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
The ruling revoked constitutional protection for having an abortion and returned the issue to the states.
“AOC gave the order today in front of the Supreme Court,” Greene commented on Twitter. “’TAKE TO THE STREETS!’ So did Maxine Waters. And just like that Antifa came out of retirement attacking innocent women. Tell me about women’s rights again.”
Greene posted the remarks along with a retweet of a video of what appeared to be Seattle Antifa rioters tackling a pro-life woman and dousing her with pepper spray.
Greene expanded on AOC’s participation in pro-abortion protests outside the Supreme Court on Friday after a video circulating online showed AOC chanting with protesters that the Supreme Court decision was “illegitimate” and that the women should “take to the streets!”
“AOC just launched an insurrection,” Greene alleged on Twitter. “Any violence and rioting is a direct result of Democrat marching orders.”
Waters also appeared to stir the pot with her comments in front of the Supreme Court, telling people, “The hell with the Supreme Court! We will defy them!” She added, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”
Pro-abortion protests broke out across the country on Friday night in response to the ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade. Left-wing rioters attempted to break inside the Arizona state capitol building before they were cleared from the area with tear gas.
In response to a video of protesters taking over the 110 North freeway in California and assaulting vehicles in the name of abortion rights, Rep. Greene concluded: “Something tells me that lawless criminals assaulting cars demanding abortion rights that they still have in CA isn’t going to make these drivers forget they are paying over $7/gal for gas, can’t afford groceries, and that their state is over run with illegals.”
