Media silent as senator openly calls for violence against pro-life Americans

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) Wednesday publicly called for abortion sympathizers to “literally" take up arms against pro-life Americans. She made the remarks while standing on the Senate floor and demanding that the federal government grant women the right to commit feticide. 

“When I hear my colleagues talking about how, you know, it should be states’ rights, or government should not be telling us what to do, the word ‘hypocrites,’ it doesn’t even go far enough to call them out on what they’re doing,” she claimed. “This is an outright attack on women in this country. That is how I see it.”  

“That is how more and more women and those who support our right to make decisions about our own bodies, that is how we see it,” she continued. “And why? Because that’s what’s happening.” 

“Madam president, I yield the floor, but clearly, you know, this is a literally call to arms in our country, I yield the floor,” she concluded. 

The senator’s “call to arms” went unmentioned by tech oligarchs and mainstream media, who have long insisted that even innocuous speech is incitement to violence. 

On January 8, 2021, for example, President Donald Trump wrote the following two tweets: 

“The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!” 

Shortly thereafter, he tweeted: 

“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.” 

For those tweets, Twitter banned the president permanently because the words “incite violence.” 

“Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly,” posted the social media giant after making the decision. “However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules entirely and cannot use Twitter to incite violence, among other things. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement.” 

In May, Axios published a list of “the times Trump has advocated for violence.” The list included Trump’s remarks in January 2021 prior to the Capitol Hill protest, in which he told supporters that "we're going to walk down to the Capitol," and "you'll never take back our country with weakness." 

Despite having also urged his supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” Trump was vilified by the media for the remark, which was categorized as “inciting violence.” 

Axios also claimed Trump incited violence when, as president, he offered to deploy the National Guard to states and cities overrun by violence in the name of George Floyd. 

Last month, the Associated Press ran the headline, “Trump’s angry words spur warnings of real violence.” The accusation was based on a social media post by President Trump, saying, “You’ve declared war on us and now it’s open season on YOU.” 

In 2019, Senator Hirono herself accused Trump of outright inciting violence when he said his “very tough” supporters in the police and military “don't act tough” but have a breaking point.

“I think it’s more than an implicit threat,” Hirono said on MSNBC. “It sounds very much to me that encouraging them to engage in something that’s probably illegal, such as assaulting people … that sounds like a threat to me. I think it’s appalling.” 

Hirono proudly posted a video of her remarks on Twitter, not bothering to edit out the call for violence.
