Female House Democrats Arrested And Handcuffed During Protest At SCOTUS, But 1/6 Insurrectionists Were Not

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and several other Democratic members of Congress were arrested for “blocking traffic” during an abortion rights protest at the Supreme Court.


The arrested members include Reps. Reps. Ayanna Pressley and Katherine Clark:

Here is Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in handcuffs:

Peacefully protesting outside of the Supreme Court for a fundamental human right and equal citizenship will result in arrest, but violently trying to overthrow the government on January 6th in armed rebellion where police officers died does not.

There is something seriously wrong when domestic terrorists get to pose for pictures and post about their crimes on social media and female members of Congress get arrested for protesting the theft of their rights by six Supreme Court justices.

As our own Sarah Jones put it:

Maybe the members of Congress should have been using the new constitutional right given to the by the Supreme Court and been protesting for control over their own bodies while carrying AR-15s?

The situation is a disgrace, and people around the country should not stop protesting until all Americans are treated equally.
