Will There Be Blood? America Post-Abortion – Opinion

A cynic may think that SCOTUS might just be teasing leftist activists by releasing opinions or decisions, which, in normal circumstances, would lead to them spitting hate on the streets, following Thursday’s ruling regarding concealed carry. But these — as DobbsThis is the most important decision to make. Roe V. Wade, hangs in the balance — are not normal circumstances.

Diversifying the hatred so that it is less ferocious may prove to be a wise decision by SCOTUS. Dobbs does come (and the leaked draft already has lefties sharpening their handmaid’s tale costumes), their collective hate won’t be focused all in one direction and perhaps the response will be a bit mitigated.

And maybe it’ll work. But Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz doesn’t necessarily think so. He believes we could be at the brink of the Summer of 2020 Riots 2.0.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas predicted that an upcoming Supreme Court ruling could trigger a “reprise” of the riots in 2020 during a Wednesday Fox News appearance.

“They’re going to engage in riots, they’re going to engage in violence,” Cruz told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “We’re going to see a reprise, I fear, of the Black Lives Matter and the Antifa riots where they’re going to try to use political violence to advance their ends, and the Department of Justice needs to step in and stop them.” (RELATED: Cruz Blasts Democrats As Party Of ‘Criminals’ And ‘Violence’ After Threat To Pro-Life Groups)

Since a draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that would overturn Roe v. Wade leaked in May, dozens of pro-life groups, churches and crisis pregnancy centers have been attacked. One pro-abortion group, Jane’s Revenge, posted a statement last week taking credit for multiple attacks across the country, including the firebombing of pro-life groups and crisis pregnancy centers in Wisconsin, Oregon and New York.

In the wake of George Floyd’s death in 2020, riots broke out nationwide, causing at least 24 deaths and over $1 billion in property damage.

Some of the more vocal and — frankly — execrable factions on the extreme left have already promised to “rage” when the decision is released.

Last week, a friend sent me a photograph of a flyer that was appearing all over Washington. “DC CALL TO ACTION NIGHT OF RAGE,” it declares. “THE NIGHT SCOTUS OVERTURNS ROE V. WADE HIT THE STREETS YOU SAID YOU’D RIOT.”

It continues: “‘TO OUR OPPRESSORS: IF ABORTIONS AREN’T SAFE, YOU’RE NOT EITHER.’ JANE’S REVENGE.”

That’s an incitement to more than peaceful protest against the Court. The threat of violence has to be taken seriously because Jane’s Revenge has already taken credit for acts of destruction against pregnancy-crisis centers around the country. Nicole Ault, a nearby journalist, reports on the alarming trend against prolife groups who counsel pregnant women contemplating abortion.

This is without doubt why the court delayed releasing its final opinion Dobbs. This gives law enforcement the time they need to deal with these implicit threats and explicitly threatens, as well as providing grist for more extreme groups and hopefully distracting them from the final decision.

But no one should be naive — losing RoeIt is likely that this will not be an insignificant thing for the radical left, and they will likely raise some hell. But Americans should take some comfort in the knowledge that progressive protests outside Justice’s homes, up to and including a legitimate assassination attempt on Justice Kavanaugh, did not deter SCOTUS from doing the right thing and respecting the Constitution. Americans must be as quiet and strong-willed when they are confronted by the inevitable emotional outbursts.
