Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley is a member of the far left ‘Squad’ from Massachusetts.
During a recent appearance on MSNBC, she came right out and called for unrest in the streets.
As if we haven’t had enough rioting and violence in America, we now have a sitting member of Congress calling for more, openly on television.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley Calls for ‘Unrest In the Streets’ Targeting Republicans, MSNBC Host Giddily Nods Along
Apparently, only Donald Trump can use “dog whistles,” because Rep. Ayanna Pressley used a pretty big one this morning to the collective shrugs of the mainstream media. I’m not even sure it qualifies as a dog whistle, given it’s a fairly direct call to action. It’s more like a dog shout.
Here are the comments in question. Pressley was on Joy Reid’s old show and called for “unrest in the streets” targeting Republicans.
It’s cliche at this point and always assumed, but if a Republican went on Fox News and told their voters to create “unrest in the streets” targeting Democrat office holders, the melt downs would be absolutely epic. CNN would lead every hour for several days straight opinion on how dangerous such calls are and how Republicans want people to get hurt. Yet, when a Democrat like Pressley does it, they smile and nod along. To be clear, if you watch the video, that’s exactly what the host does. She’s practically giddy at the idea of targeting Republicans with “unrest.”

This is simply unacceptable.
There is a political party encouraging, supporting and excusing the riots, violence, arson, murder in in our cities. https://t.co/qyBHI1aXmj

A sitting US representative is urging for violence against individuals. How is this not something she should be removed from office ?
