The attempted assassination of a sitting US Supreme Court Justice should alarm everyone, regardless of political persuasion. Alarm, yes. Surprise, no.
The radical Left has been sowing seeds of derangement since the leaked document overturning Roe and Casey was made public.
After the arrest of an armed man near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home, a video surfaced on social media showing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer forcefully declaring, “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” (Emphasis added) The attempted assassin came appallingly close to making good on Schumer’s threat.
This dangerous rhetoric extends beyond one unhinged politician.
An attempt to kill a Supreme Court justice, firebombing of pregnancy help centers, and vandalism against dozens of churches and individuals have been fueled by words and actions of the radical Left.
Regarding protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, then White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, “I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date. And we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges’ homes, and that’s the president’s position.”
These protestors received the endorsement of the President of the United States even though they violate federal law.
Despite the radical pro-abortion group Ruth Sent US tweeting “We are committed to non-violence” they posted unsettling tweets directed at Mrs. Kavanaugh showing they are familiar with her routine and know where her children attend school.
Irresponsible members of the media have actually encouraged violence against pro-lifers. Responding to the firebombing of a pro-life group in Wisconsin, Caroline Reilly, a reporter with Rewire News Group tweeted, “More of this. May these people never know a moment of peace or safety until they rot in the ground.”
The Department of Homeland Security issued a warning that more domestic terrorism may be coming, and it’s clear these acts are unanimously one-sided.
So-called comedian Samantha Bee declared in an obscenity-laced diatribe, “How dare Republicans demand civility as they strip away our civil rights.” I doubt a majority of Americans would agree that ripping a baby limb from limb in the womb qualifies as a “civil right.”
Vice President Kamala Harris channeled Chicken Little and declared that reversing Roe means “Women will die.” Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton piled on saying the Court’s action “will kill and subjugate women.”
A couple years earlier, Jimmy Kimmel offered a lowbrow assessment that if Kavanaugh were elevated to the Supreme Court his “pesky penis” should be severed.
Can you imagine the media outrage had conservatives made similar statements about liberal justices?!
Of course, the sky won’t fall with the reversal of Roe v Wade. Life Issues Institute has produced a half-hour radio special titled, The Sky Isn’t Falling: Realities of a Post-Roe America. Our guests demonstrate that women will flourish without abortion. This program will equip you to respond to the misinformation campaign being waged by the biased media and pro-abortion activists.
We cannot remain silent and allow the radical Left to control the narrative. Listen to the program and take advantage of the many available resources. This is a great tool to educate millions of Americans being fed lies from the abortion industry and its advocates.
Speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
