The same people who hoot and holler about J6 won’t give a damn about this.
Fox: “Law enforcement officers in Phoenix, Arizona used tear gas to break up a sizable group of protesters on Friday outside the state’s Senate building following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade.
‘Protesters threatened to break the AZ Senate entryway glass,’ Republican Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted, as members were in the middle of voting on a series of bills. ‘We are safe inside… God bless law enforcement,’ Rogers said.
The situation escalated into a hostage situation as lawmakers were instructed not to exit the building, Republican Arizona State Senator Kelly Townsend said. The Republican Caucus of the State Senate later called the protest an attempted ‘insurrection.’ ”

Arizona has a stringent abortion law, but does not have a trigger law that outlaws abortion. These states do: Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.
Pro abortion terrorists tried to enter the Arizona Senate building and were repulsed by law enforcement. Let’s see what the J6 Committee says about that. Here are the impressions of Arizona state legislators on the attack.
“We are currently there being held hostage inside the Senate building due to members of the public trying to breach our security,” Townsend tweeted Friday night. “We smell tear gas and the children of one of the members are in the office sobbing with fear. I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately,” she added.
“An angry mob defaced the Arizona Peace Officers Memorial last night, after being dispersed from the State Capitol. This wasn’t a peaceful or lawful protest,” Arizona AG Mark Brnovich said. “We must never tolerate these criminal attempts to tear down our institutions and intimidate our officials.”
“Crowd was dispersed with tear gas.” Rogers added, noting the protests were still continuing and the situation remained “very dangerous.”
“While working inside we were interrupted by the sound of bangs and smell of tear gas,” Rep. Sarah Liguori tweeted Friday evening. “Protestors cleared from the Capitol.”
“Feeling safe at the Capitol as I sit by 3 of my fellow senators who are armed,” added Arizona State Legislator Warren Petersen. “Violent pro-abortion protestors’ attempts of an insurrection at the Arizona State Senate were thwarted Friday night, thanks to the swift actions from local and state law enforcement,” said Kim Quintero, the Republican Caucus’ communications director.
The GOP group said the “extremist demonstrations” were carried out by people “forcibly trying to make entry [to the building] by breaking windows and pushing down doors.”
“We are incredibly thankful for our local law enforcement who quickly intervened during what could have been a destructive and dangerous situation for our members, staff, and public inside the Senate,” said Senate President Karen Fann.
