Of course, the pair couldn’t resist mugging for the cameras as they were “arrested” by Capitol Police.
Seventeen House Democrats were arrested along with fellow pro-abortion protesters for blocking traffic in front of the Supreme Court during a planned “civil disobedience” pro-abortion protest.
Axios reports, “U.S. Capitol Police said that it started arresting demonstrators after they failed to follow their three warnings to stop blocking a street in Washington, D.C. near the Supreme Court.”
Among the demonstrators were the members of the far-left Democrat “Squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and the newest recruit, Cori Bush.

Not wasting an opportunity, both AOC and Ilhan Omar pretended to be handcuffed as they were escorted away by police.

The best part about this is that for a second, AOC forgets and raises a “solidarity” fist and then quickly returns her hand behind her back to make it look like she’s been handcuffed.

Just look at their grins… this is precisely what they wanted.
Why did they want it? Because they know how the Regime Media works — that’s why they faked the handcuffing.

Journos are always caterwauling about how there is such low trust in the media.
This sort of blatant partisanship is why people don’t trust the media to tell the truth. They’re literally making up a story with these images.
Absolutely irreparably broken.
— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) July 19, 2022
Rep. Omar’s office even alerted journos that they were about to take part in the protest so that cameras could be there to catch their “civil disobedience.”
Inbox: Rep. Ilhan Omar, other members “will participate in a civil disobedience” at the Supreme Court in protest of Roe v. Wade decision. Release says the action will happen shortly.

They wanted photos of them being “arrested” spread all over the internet.
They did seem to have forgotten about Right-wing Twitter that is on the ball with these sorts of things.
Conservatives mocked both AOC and Omar for faking that they were handcuffed.
Note the handcuff pose, abandoned only to raise her fist in the air. The queen of gestures. https://t.co/48S5OyiiE6

AOC will probably tweet soon about how she was nearly a victim of police brutality.

You guys… @AOC is such a victim that she has to pretend that the big, mean policeman put her in handcuffs…
She probably also thinks he wants to date her. pic.twitter.com/BvBF23BzUp

AOC: Prison changed me
Ma’am, you didn’t go to prison
AOC: I still experienced what it was like to be arrested
Ma’am, you weren’t arrested
AOC: I had handcuffs on
Ma’am, you were not cuffed
AOC: WHY DO YOU WANT TO DATE ME?

The protest was celebrated by the pro-abortion activist group that is a front for Communism, Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. The pro-abort Commies that take kids across state lines to illegally protest in front of the houses of Supreme Court Justices were thrilled that some of the Congresswomen were wearing green bandanas.
Now is the time to put our bodies on the line. To #RiseUp4AbortionRights again and again. Mass sustained non-violent resistance that disrupts this society demanding LEGAL ABORTION NATIONWIDE NOW!
👏 to these congress folks. Notice how they are wearing #Green4Abortion? 💚 https://t.co/yDKrW2qMIj

The “Democratic-Socialists” in the Squad are aligning themselves with Maoists in their ghoulish appeal to kill unborn children in the womb and no one is batting an eye.
Well, we shouldn’t be surprised. Most of the Regime Media are just the same sorts of pro-abort, kill the baby right up to the moment of birth monsters that are completely out of touch with the vast majority (72%) of Americans that believe that abortion should be restricted after 15 weeks, which is in line with the Mississippi law that brought Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health to the Supreme Court in the first place.
They’re also out of touch with women who are much more likely to be pro-life than men.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
