Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot recently tweeted out a ‘call to arms’ to the LGBT community over the Supreme Court opinion that suggests the court is going to overturn Roe v. Wade.
While it’s not clear what abortion has to do with the LGBT community, her call to arms is stunning.
Isn’t this the sort of thing that Democrats and the media consider a dangerous insurrection?
FOX News reports:
Lori Lightfoot warns the LGBTQ+ community, ‘The Supreme Court is coming for us next’
Lori Lightfoot, the Democrat lesbian mayor of Chicago, took to Twitter Monday to warn others in the LGBTQ+ community that the Supreme Court would be “coming after us next,” following the leaked draft opinion striking down the key abortion precedent Roe v. Wade (1973).
“To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community—the Supreme Court is coming for us next,” Lightfoot wrote on Twitter. “This moment has to be a call to arms. We will not surrender our rights without a fight—a fight to victory!”
Lightfoot had announced an initiative to make Chicago an “island of reproductive freedom” and a “safe haven” for abortion in the Midwest earlier Monday. Her “Justice For All Pledge” dedicates $500,000 towards access to abortion in her city, including transportation and lodging for women coming in from out of state.
Here’s her tweet:
To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community—the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms.

Is she crazy?
Would love an explanation as to how you will have this “call to arms” in a city that is a gun-free zone… https://t.co/1aWHvYs4UM

And the media will let her get away with this.
It must be nice to be a Democrat.
