Rep. Nancy Mace (R.S.C.), exposed the apparent hypocrisy of a transsexual activist during Tuesday’s House hearing concerning “anti-democratic extremist groups” and the ongoing threat against democracy.
On Dec. 13, the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties conducted its final hearing on “Confronting Violent White Supremacy.” It sought to discuss “the consequences” of inaction, contextualizing the rise of white nationalism and political violence.
Republicans could invite one witness. Five Democrats were invited to speak.
Alejandra Caraballo, a Harvard Law School clinical instructor and transsexual civil rights lawyer, was one of the Democrats’ witnesses.
Caraballo stated that there was a link between “extreme threats to the LGBTQ community” (white supremacy) and Caraballo referred to the Colorado Springs November Club Q shooting but did not mention that it was allegedly committed by a member of the LGBTQ community.
Caraballo suggested the closing down of all-ages drag shows was a sign of white supremacy. He also hinted at a possible link between anti-LGBT elements in North Carolina and the attack on North Carolina power substations.
Caraballo raised a few grievances regarding the alleged extremist rhetoric that was threatening safety and democracy in America. Subcommittee member Rep. Nancy Mace stated, “Threats against our democracy come from people who seek to undermine both our Constitution and our three branches of government.”
Mace said, “We have to stand up to support the Constitution & the rule of law against people who debase our societies with violence or harassment government officials performing their constitutional duties.”
The congresswoman asked a series of yes-or-no questions of the panelists. These included “Is social media rhetoric a problem and threat to our democracy?” And “Do you think that rhetoric targeting officials with violence in carrying out their constitutional duties are a threat against democracy?”
Caraballo and all other panelists unanimously answered yes. Mace, however, did not appear to agree with the answer of the transsexual extremist.
Mace pointed out that just a few weeks following the attempt to attack a Supreme Court justice, Caraballo tweeted in a now-deleted Tweet: “The 6 justices that overturned Roe shouldn’t know peace again.”
Caraballo tweeted, “It’s our civic duty to accost these people whenever they are in public.” They are pariahs. These justices shouldn’t be allowed to have peace in public again, since women don’t enjoy their rights.
Mace took the opportunity to expose Caraballo’s hypocrisy and highlighted a tweet that the transsexual extremist had posted late last month. It stated, “It is so obvious that Justice Alito has been corrupted and SCOTUS is compromised as an institution.” This is not a court that is legitimately issuing decisions. It is an organ of the far right, which follows only outcome-determinative logic and not any reasoned jurisprudence.
It’s so clear that Justice Alito is corrupt and SCOTUS as an institution is compromised. This is not a legitimate court issuing decisions. It’s an organ of the far right that solely follows outcome determinative logic rather than any reasoned jurisprudence.

Caraballo, who called the Supreme Court “christofascist” on Twitter and has repeatedly suggested that riots would be in order if gay activists aren’t allowed to have their way in court — was vague when asked if this particular instance of extremist rhetoric was a threat.
Instead, the transsexual extremist claimed that these tweets were provided without context.

Asra Nomani, a former Georgetown professor, witnessed the interaction firsthand.
Later, Nomani wrote that she sat next to Alejandra Caraballo (@esqueer_), and watched as her fake keyboard courage crumbled to pieces when @RepNancyMace confronted Caraballo about his violent bravado. “See what cowardice looks and feels like.”

Mace stated that her interest in the use of virtual violence across the political spectrum was not only a professional and legal matter but also personal.
The congresswoman described how she was “accosted” in Washington by a constituent on Jan. 5. This incident Mace attributes to extremist rhetoric online.
Mace stated, “I have a gun wherever I go in my district and at home because I know that rhetoric has consequences.”
She concluded her remarks by emphasizing that “we have to call attention to the threats to democracy emanating from where they are, regardless of whether it’s from the right or left.”
