After word came down that Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell honored the iconic Supreme Court justice and then promised to move President Trump’s nominee quickly…
The Senate and the nation mourn the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life.

McConnell’s promise that his Republican Senate will vote on what is certain to be, a reliable originalist (read conservative) jurist sent the Twitterverse’s Left into a meltdown.
If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.

Radicalized Leftist, writer Reza Aslan tweeted: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.”
While that is a very real threat given their repeated acts of smashing storefronts, looting, property damage, arson, and physical assault over the past three+ months, one wonders what’s left for these anarchists to burn down?
Another radicalized Leftistm Beau Willimon tweeted: “We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.”
We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.

Shutting down what exactly? What’s left to be shut down? The governors and mayors of their liberal enclaves have used the CCP virus as an excuse to shut the economies of their states and cities.
If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots.

Still another radicalized Leftist threatened; “If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots.”
Where’s she been for the past four months?
(H/T) Breitbart for gathering these and more tweets in this article.
The threats are somewhat hollow when one surveills the landscape searching for something left to burn.
If McConnell can successfully pull off the confirmation of an originalist justice before the election, Democrats will be getting what they deserve.
It is Democrats who threatened to pack the Supreme Court if given control of the White House and Senate.
It was Justice Ginsburg’s decision to not retire when she was asked during the Obama administration in order to preserve the ideological tilt of the seat she occupied.
It was Democrats who shamelessly smeared Brett Kavanaugh in an attempt to derail his confirmation.
Thanks to President Trump’s resolute stand on behalf of everyday Americans, Republicans may finally show some backbone…
Riots are planned if a vote comes to the Senate? What’s new? Do not be intimidated.
