Alejandra Caraballo, an extreme-left transgender activist, was intensely grilled by Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) as part of a Tuesday hearing in the House for a number of previous statements made by the activist.
The exchange took place during a hearing of the House Oversight and Reform Committee about “The Evolution of Anti-Democratic Extremist Groups and the Ongoing Threat to Democracy.”
Mace posited of all the witnesses called up by the Democrat-controlled committee if someone’s overall rhetoric on social media was an issue or a threat to the democracy of the U.S. Every single one of the witnesses stated, “yes.”
Mace then highlighted a series of older tweets from Caraballo in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade in which Caraballo issued some highly inflammatory statements.
“The 6 justices who overturned Roe should never know peace again,” stated Caraballo in a tweet. “It is our civic duty to accost them every time they are in public. They are pariahs. Since women don’t have their rights, these justices should never have a peaceful moment in public again.”
“I have a question … yes or no: Do you believe your rhetoric is a threat to democracy when you’re calling to accost a branch of government, the Supreme Court?” questioned Mace.
“I don’t believe that’s a correct characterization of my statements,” exclaimed Caraballo.
“Did you not tweet that?” Mace questioned. “That you thought Supreme Court justices should be accosted?”
Caraballo then started to parrot themselves by repeatedly claiming that the comments from Mace were not a good characterization of Caraballo’s exact words.
“It’s clear to me that we have to call out the threats to our democracy emanating from where they come, whether it’s the Right or the Left,” stated Mace. “I look forward to working with anyone, Republican or Democrat … to address these threats from within and without, and I look forward to inviting more people who actually know what they’re talking about to our witness panels in the 118th Congress.”
