The left threatens death, destruction, and fire if President Trump dares nominate a replacement for RBG on SCOTUS
The news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing has driven much of the left bonkers. They know that President Trump may nominate a constitutionalist replacement and, rather than a robust opposition, are vowing death and destruction in response.
Here's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and note the innuendo in her tone:

Doesn't sound like a democratic response she has in mind. No smiles, no sexy red lipstick, no pricey designer clothes — she's got a dirty t-shirt with something written on it, a blazer thrown over it, and her hair in a rarin' for revolution mess. Among socialists, this is what is meant by meaning business.
Others are much more explicit — such as this blue-check:
If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.— Reza Aslan (@rezaaslan) September 19, 2020
He's talking about dead bodies.
McConnell says the Senate will vote on Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, after preventing Obama from putting Garland on the court. We’re up against people with no regard for the law. And it’s time to stop letting them get away with it. Anyone Trump nominates must be blocked, by the people.— Joshua Potash (@JoshuaPotash) September 19, 2020
If they attempt to fill this SCOTUS seat we must take to the streets like never before and disrupt all life as we know it. In 2016 they denied a vote to seat Garland for nearly a year. This can not be allowed!— James Woods (@RuckSacWoods) September 19, 2020
RIP Ruth Ginsburg. Over my dead body that the racist fucking orange Hitler gets to appoint another arch conservative judge. Over my dead body. People, VOTE and SPEAK UP.

We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) September 18, 2020
It's strange stuff, given that they no longer believe in debate, persuasion, or even congressional maneuvers — they just want to menace, burn, and kill, which is the sort of thing totalitarian mobs in nasty third-world hellholes do, if not National Socialists in action.
And they speak of it as if they haven't already been to that well once, burning and looting to demonstrate their supposed calls for what they claim to be racial justice, frequently targeting small black-owned buisnesses in inner cities to make their mendacious claims.
Basically, it's full blown civil war they want, and, like overconfident Confederates, they may be surprised how quickly they get it. Unlike the Confederates, they lack courage, so it could be over quickly.
What it tells the rest of us is that these aren't rational people. They're so deranged that they'll burn and kill as a means of getting what they can't get at the ballot box. They need to taken at their word that it's insurrection they want and smacked down hard.
