Squad Members Among 14 Members of Congress Arrested at D.C. Abortion Riot

'I will continue to do everything in my power to raise the alarm about the assault on our reproductive rights!'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Talib, D-Mich., were arrested Tuesday, alongside 15 other members of Congress, in their latest abortion insurrection in Washington, D.C.

Meanwhile, fellow Squad-member Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez, D-N.Y., pretended to be hand-cuffed for the cameras.

Omar stated explicitly that she was there to protest the recent decision in the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, reported Fox News.

“Today I was arrested while participating in a civil disobedience action with my fellow Members of Congress outside the Supreme Court,” she said. “I will continue to do everything in my power to raise the alarm about the assault on our reproductive rights!”

U.S. Capitol Police warned the insurrectionists against obstructing roadways and gave them ample opportunity to clear out

“It is against the law to block traffic, so officers are going to give our standard three warnings before they start making arrests,” noted USCP’s official Twitter account.

Shortly afterward, police announced, “[s]ome of the demonstrators are refusing to get out of the street, so we are starting to make arrests.”

One insurrectionist Democrat legislator, Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y., signaled a detachment from reality, by comparing the elite lawmakers’ ‘struggle’ to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

“Today we marched to the SCOTUS to protest the radical right-wing decision to overturn Roe,” she said on her Twitter account.

“It’s time for some good trouble,” she continued. We won’t go back.”

The court’s Dobbs ruling last month determined that the nearly 50-year-old federal abortion mandate established under Roe v. Wade had never been constitutional in the first place.

Comically, one Twitter user recorded Ocasio–Cortez feigning handcuffs as a patient police officer escorted her out of a crosswalk.

This temper tantrum is but the latest in a long line of leftists breaking the law for the sake of infanticide.
