On Wednesday, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C. reportedly blasted a far-left activist over deadly speech on social media, after the congresswoman exposed her for her own blatant hypocrisy on the subject.
At a hearing of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Mace questioned transgender rights advocate Alejandra Caraballo, bringing up her own contradictory tweets encouraging violence against Supreme Court justices.
According to Mace, those who like testifying before committees to discuss risks to democracy and hate speech online frequently engage in such activity themselves.
“If you’re going to be a hypocrite who advocates violence online, you probably shouldn’t do it coming before me and my committee,” Mace said.
Mace put up Tweets that Caraballo had formerly sent out in which the radical transgender activist had demanded that Supreme Court Justices be “accosted” in public and that they should, in her words, “never know peace again.”
The left hates it when they’re confronted with their own words!

Before denying that her own tweets epitomized violent speech, she agreed with the South Carolina lawmaker that vitriol on social media and statements threatening violence against leaders are risks to democracy.
Since she too has experienced political violence, Mace said she is aware of the potential for real-world harm from internet threats.
The Republican senator claimed she carries a pistol with her everywhere because of threats she received online, threats just like those issued by Caraballo.
