Various Leftist Twitter users posted threats of violence and destruction if Republicans attempt to fill the vacant Supreme Court Justice seat, following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday.

Writer Laura Bassett said in a tweet that has since been deleted, "If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots." Bassett followed up with a tweet, also deleted, clarifying, "*more, bigger riots."

Emmett Macfarlane, Professor of Political Science at the University of Waterloo, also said before deleting the tweet, "Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to [the Supreme Court of the United States]."
