Leftists Bury Another Norm: Protesters Target Homes of SCOTUS Justices

The Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito Draft opinion about reversing was met with anger by the public. Roe v. Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas said: “We are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don’t like. It is impossible to be an institution that will give you the outcome you desire. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that.” The kind of events to which Thomas referred include pro-abortion activists blocking church entrances and protesting at the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Alito.

It’s difficult to pinpoint when the Left-leaning generation decided to persuade rather than attack those with different views. The Senate rejected the Supreme Court nomination for the first-ever time in American history. This was not due to ethics or lack thereof, but because Democrats were opposed to his judicial philosophy.

The U.S. Court of Appeals, District of Columbia was nominated by President Ronald Reagan. Justice Robert Bork represented — to Democrats such as Sen Ted Kennedy — a threat of moving the Supreme Court towards the right over issues like affirmative action and abortion. Kennedy was viciously attacked. On the Senate floor, Kennedy described “Robert Bork’s America” as “a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens.”

Two years ago, at a pro-abortion rights rally in front of the Supreme Court, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., shouted: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. Kavanaugh, I have something to say. The whirlwind has been released and you’ll pay for it. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” Following this, Chief Justice John Roberts issued a statement: “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory. But threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.”

At a rally two years ago, Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called for harassment of Trump Cabinet members. Waters shouted: “If you see anybody from that (Trump) Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Joe Biden was once President of the United States. He backed an amend to reverse it. Roe v. Wade, recently slammed its possible reversal: “What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history — in recent American history.”

Even The New York TimesDean Baquet, executive editor, criticized intolerance by the Left. In 2017, Baquet said: “I don’t understand how one can actually have an intellectual discourse in this country if you cannot have the opportunity to read thoughtful people with whom you disagree. The country is at an important moment right now, and I believe the Left should also do soul-searching. … We don’t want to hear anything — we’ve long said this about this about the Right … but the Left as a rule does not want to hear thoughtful disagreement.”

I am pro-life. I don’t support abortion. California is where I live, and voters opposed the restriction of abortion for parental notification as well as waiting periods. Federalist, who thinks that abortion issues should be left to the States, sees my role as citizen, pundit, and person of faith. My goal is to persuade not to threaten. It was once that people from the Left also felt this way.
