House Democrats on Tuesday held a hearing on “white supremacy” as a threat to national survival so they could continue to portray Republicans as enemies of the state.

Yet GOP Rep. Nancy Mace brought the receipts.

The South Carolina Republican lit up a transgender activist who appeared as a star Democratic witness on hateful rhetoric, using the activist’s own words to spotlight hate speech.

During the hearing, Mace asked if violent rhetoric aimed at government officials carrying out their constitutional duty is a threat to democracy. All the Democrats’ witnesses agreed.

Then Mace turned to Alejandra Caraballo, a transgender activist at Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic.

Mace then highlighted Caraballo’s tweet from June following the overturning of Roe. v. Wade.

“The 6 justices who overturned Roe should never know peace again,” Caraballo tweeted. “It is our civic duty to accost them every time they are in public. They are pariahs. Since women don’t have their rights, these justices should never have a peaceful moment in public again.”

Mace then asked Caraballo, “Do you believe your rhetoric is a threat to democracy when you’re calling to accost a branch of government, the Supreme Court?”

Caraballo weakly responded that the congresswoman did not offer a fair “characterization” of the tweet. But Caraballo did not deny writing it.

“I carry a gun everywhere I go when I’m home in my district because I know personally that rhetoric has consequences,” Mace said to Caraballo.

She then said that her home and car had been vandalized and broken into and that she’s had to beef up her personal security.

Mace then pointed out that Caraballo, in another tweet, had called the Supreme Court an “organ of the far right.”

Mace then recalled for the witness that a would-be-armed assassin was arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home this summer.

“It’s clear to me that we have to call out the threats to our democracy emanating from where they come, whether it’s the right or the left,” Mace said in closing, “and I look forward to inviting more people who actually know what they’re talking about to our witness panels in the 118th Congress.”
