Congressional Democrats just gave the green light to these violent Leftist extremists

Democrats love to cry wolf about the supposed “threat of political violence” from conservatives. But when their mob starts a terror campaign, they play cover.

And Congressional Democrats just gave the green light to these violent Leftist extremists.

Who can forget the summer of 2020? Black Lives Matter spent months burning down city centers in the name of social justice.

Dozens died and billions of dollars in damages were inflicted on innocent business owners and citizens.

But the only thing the Left could mutter was the radical claim that rioting and violence are somehow okay when they do it.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez famously came out saying these extremists “have no choice but to riot.”

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo even asked “show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful” – showing everyone he skipped civics class in grade school.

All of this is just symptomatic of the fact that Democrats make excuses for their side’s violence – they have no principles.

And they proved it once more in a recent vote in the House of Representatives.

Democrats didn’t vote for a resolution that condemned recent acts of violence against pregnancy centers, groups, and churches that support life.

The resolution was passed by the Republican-led House by a vote of 222 to 209. Only Reps. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA), and Marie Perez (D-CA) voted in favor (D-WA).

The House took up and passed two pro-life bills on Wednesday. H. Con. Res. 3 officially condemns the recent attacks and asks the Biden administration to “appropriate law enforcement authorities to support their safety.”

The resolution was written by Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), who said:

Following the leak and issuance of the Dobbs decision, radical anti-life advocates defaced, vandalized, and caused destruction to OVER 100 pro-life facilities, groups, and churches. Since there has been ZERO accountability for the leaked opinion and ensuing violence, we are making the position of Congress crystal clear: Violence, property damage and threats MUST be condemned, and these clear violations of federal and state laws MUST be prosecuted.

Before the votes were taken, Democrats spoke out against both bills.

Katherine Clark (D-MA), who is pro-abortion, went on Twitter to confuse people about the issues. She said, “While Democrats reject violence at every turn, Republicans amplify dangerous voices and are silent as threats against abortion providers and patients rise.”

Democrats did not appear to reject the violence faced by pro-life organizations, prompting CatholicVote to reply, “What part of care center firebombed do you not understand?”

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) took to the House floor to sing a similar tune as Clark, saying, “I am against all forms of violence, including violence against any one of the majority of Americans who support abortion rights.” Schakowsky argued that the House should condemn violence generally, as opposed to the dramatic increase in violence against pro-life centers since the leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, overturning Roe v. Wade.

“We have to make sure that people who are pro-life and pro-people who support abortion rights, and we support life, are included in opposing violence,” she said.

House Republicans pointed to the “nearly 80 documented attacks on crisis pregnancy centers, pro-life organizations, and churches by Far Left radicals since the leaked Dobbs opinion.”

Even though Democrats didn’t back the resolution, many Republicans and pro-life groups spoke in favor of it.

Rep. Mike Collins R-GA) said:

I am unapologetically pro-life. All human beings have a right to life, including unborn children, and I am thrilled that in our first week the new House Republican majority has voted to protect the most innocent and defenseless among us. I also proudly voted to condemn the left-wing violence against crisis pregnancy centers over the past year. These centers provide crucial assistance to mothers, babies, and families in need and must be protected.

Jeanne Mancini, who is the head of March for Life, said:

The March for Life is grateful to House Republicans for prioritizing commonsense and compassionate pro-life bills in the new Congress. This includes a resolution that publicly condemns the rash of violent attacks against churches and pro-life organizations which simply exist to support women in need who choose life, as well as legislation that protects babies born alive after failed abortions. We urge all legislators to vote in favor of these measures which align with the values of the vast majority of Americans.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also spoke about her experience as a mother on the House floor.

“Being a mother is the greatest gift in the world, and childbirth is a true miracle of God,” she said. “From 2016 through 2020, pro-life pregnancy centers partnered with pregnant women at risk for abortion to save over 800,000 lives.”

“Approximately 75 percent of women at risk for abortion who view an ultrasound of their baby in the womb at a pregnancy center ultimately make the choice to continue their pregnancy,” Greene continued. sent out the following tweet in defense of the pro-life care centers:
