A well-known Seattle city councilwoman has been on the receiving end of vicious threats and racist comments after encouraging protesters to shut down President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, reports Q13 Fox.

According to a spokeswoman for Kshama Sawant — one of the few socialist office holders in the U.S. — the councilwoman has been flooded with angry emails and phone calls for encouraging continuing protests against Trump.

Speaking on Election Day, Sawant called on the public to “tell America we do not accept a racist agenda and let’s make sure of that on Inauguration Day.”

After a video of Sawant’s speech went viral, she was deluged with over 200 phone calls to her Seattle office.

“A staffer was told on phone: ‘I will come and tattoo a swastika on your head and on that b*tch’s head,’” Council spokesperson Dana Robinson Slote stated in an email.

“Go back to India b*tch,” one email read. “I am tired of being shamed because I’m a white male. You automatically think I’m a racist. How about you go the f*ck back to India or wherever you came from?”

Another emailer complained that conservatives didn’t riot when Barack Obama was elected, before adding, “Stop being such a cry baby bitch and go hang yourself.”

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
