Former-Home-Shopping-Network-sales-gal-turned-U.S.-congresswoman Marsha Blackburn is trending on Twitter this morning after she went on Newsmax to call for women’s rights activists peacefully protesting the Supreme Court potentially overturning Roe v. Wade to be jailed.
“They should haul all these people down to police headquarters, they should book them,” Blackburn said while speaking about the who people that gathered outside Justice Alito’s house last night to sip wine, nibble cheese, and protest women’s rights being stripped away. “They’re trying to change the outcome of a SCOTUS decision, and they’re doing it by showing force and intimidation.”

Blackburn’s remarks are ironic, to say the least, considering that after Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, she released a joint statement with fellow Tennessee Sen. Bill Hagerty stating their plans to take a “united stand against the tainted electoral results from the recent Presidential election.”
“American democracy relies on the consent of the governed,” the statement read. “Protecting the integrity of the electoral process is paramount to preserving trust and legitimacy in the final outcome.”
In the end, Blackburn, who got her Bachelor’s degree in home economics, ultimately voted to certify the election results. But then a few weeks later she voted to acquit Donald Trump after he incited a deadly insurrection on the U.S. Capitol in an effort to overthrow those very election results.
Here’s what folx on Twitter are saying about Blackburn’s Newsmax appearance…
Hey #Marsha, the purpose of protesting is to bring about change. The right to peacefully protest is protected in the 1st Amendment. And, its not a crime to try to influence the Court’s decisions. Refer to the Constitution you swore to protect and defend.#FreshWords#RoeVsWade

The SCOTUS has upheld:
– Westboro Baptist Church protests at soldiers’ funerals
– Protests outside the homes of abortion clinic employees
– Removal of buffer zones in front of abortion clinics
Either free speech is absolute or it’s not.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn demanded that SCOTUS protestors be "hauled off and arrested." By a unanimous vote, Congress has asked FEMA to intervene on behalf of Marsha's hair and extract all the families and livestock trapped inside it pic.twitter.com/EapeyXv1GC

Her degree is in home economics, not law.

These are the same folks who believe the 2nd amendment allows them to take up arms against their own govt. How can they believe that any protest, violent or otherwise, is wrong?

Why are we required to adhere to the majority opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States when the Supreme Court of the United States is not required to adhere to the majority opinion of the people?
