Democrats currently running the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held one of their last hearings to try to paint their political opponents as violent white supremacists who alone pose a unique threat to “our democracy.” One of the witnesses pushing the claim that attacks on LGBTQ people are caused by white supremacists (despite the fact that most such attacks have turned out to be by other LGBTQ people with personal issues) was transsexual civil rights attorney and Harvard instructor Alejandra Caraballo.

Caraballo went on for a while about the threat posed by rightwing rhetoric online. South Carolina Republican Rep. Nancy Mace then asked Caraballo and the other panelists a series of questions, such as, “Is rhetoric on social media a problem and a threat to our democracy?” and “Do you believe that rhetoric targeting officials with violence for carrying out their constitutional duties is a threat to democracy?” They all wholeheartedly agreed.

Then Rep. Mace broke out a series of large posters reproducing Caraballo’s own tweets. They were a series of hotheaded attacks on conservative Supreme Court Justices, calling them “Christofascists,” urging mobs to never let them have a moment’s peace in public places, and suggesting that riots are an appropriate response to rulings that go against gay activists.

One observer noted that it showed “what cowardice looks like” to watch this keyboard warrior’s fake courage “melt to mush” when confronted by her own violent rhetoric.

Rep. Mace went on to describe how she now carries a gun at all times because she was traumatized by a confrontation with someone who was fired up by irresponsible violent leftwing rhetoric like that.

And now you know why the January 6th Kangaroo Kommittee refused to let Republicans cross-examine its “witnesses.” They were terrified that the truth might be exposed. Fortunately, in January, that ends and the established rules of legal procedure return. It can’t come soon enough to save the republic, the Constitution and our civil rights from the people who claim they’re protecting “our democracy” by stomping on the Constitution and our civil rights.
