Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley called for “unrest in the streets” on national cable news Saturday morning. The Blaze’s Paul Sacca reports:
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) called for “unrest in the streets” on Saturday during an appearance on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.”
“I’m looking to the public. You know, this is as much about public outcry, and organizing, and mobilizing, and applying pressure so that this GOP-led Senate and these governors that continue to carry water for this administration, putting the American people in harm’s way, turning a deaf ear to the needs of our families and our communities, hold them accountable. Make the phone calls, send the emails, show up,” Pressley said of President Donald Trump’s allies.
“There needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives and unfortunately there’s plenty to go around.” Pressley told “AM Joy” guest host Tiffany Cross.
Cross replied, “I have, I have no retort to that, congresswoman. That’s, that’s certainly accurate.”
This isn’t the first time that Pressley has called for “unrest in the streets.”
“There will be unrest in the streets for as long as the is unrest in the lives of Black Americans,” Pressley told Jim Braude on WGBH News’ “Greater Boston” in June.
