Biden encouraging people to illegally intimidate SCOTUS justices

Comments made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on behalf of President Joe Biden amount to encouraging people to intimidate SCOTUS justices illegally, according to a Washington Examiner opinion column published Saturday. 

Psaki was asked four separate times by reporters after the SCOTUS leak of a draft decision that overturns Roe V. Wade whether the president condemns those who protest outside justices’ homes, and she refused to give any answer.

“I don’t have an official U.S. government position on where people protest,” she said, even though doing so at people’s homes is illegal.

She also refused to condemn someone who doxed judges by publishing a map of their personal residences.

Making excuses

Look, I think the president’s view is that there’s a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across this country about what they saw in that leaked document,” Psaki said.

She has made excuses for those unhappy about the decision and said she was personally distressed over it.

The situation isn’t helped by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer,  who has directly threatened justices against overturning Roe V. Wade.

“I want to tell you, Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch, you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Schumer said when the court decided to hear a case on a Louisiana abortion law in 2020. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

“Incitement to violence”

It is the opinion of the Examiner that “telling justices they will personally ‘pay the price’ if they vote against Roe and then sending activists to their doorsteps is an incitement to violence.”

If one of these justices’ small children are harmed by activists, it will be Schumer and Biden’s responsibility, the Examiner noted.

While there is a right to “peaceably” assemble, there is not a right to violently do so.

It’s time for Democrats to learn this distinction before another $2 billion in property damage happens (like it did during the George Floyd riots in June 2020).
