Democrats and other far-left activists erupted Friday afternoon after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) led chants outside the Supreme Court, falsely claiming that the ruling from the nation’s highest court was “illegitimate” and encouraging activists to take to “the streets.”
The extreme remarks from Ocasio-Cortez come after a left-wing extremist was arrested outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for allegedly trying to assassinate the judge.

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during her press conference that there was “no point in saying ‘good morning,’ because it certainly is not one.”

Pelosi went on to make false claims about what the ruling means for other issues related to pregnancy, as noted by legal scholar Jonathan Turley.
…The majority rejects that claim and notes that "perhaps this is designed to stoke unfounded fear that our decision will imperil those other rights." Having the Speaker refer to the next election despite the express statement to the Court seems to reaffirm that view.

Far-left activist Cameron Kasky appeared to encourage even more extreme action, tweeting: “Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel.”
Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tweeted: “Overturning Roe v. Wade and denying women the right to control their own bodies is an outrage and in defiance of what the American people want. Democrats must now end the filibuster in the Senate, codify Roe v. Wade, and once again make abortion legal and safe.”
Far-left activist Brian Fallon, Executive Director of Demand Justice, tweeted: “If you are not calling for reforming the Supreme Court today, I don’t know what to tell you.”
