The Judicial Network (JCN) just released a political ad containing the 911 call of Nicholas Roske, the man who is facing charges for attempting to murder U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The ad is 30-seconds long. The first 18 seconds feature the audio from the call that took place on June 8, 2022, between Roske, labeled as the “liberal gunman,” and a 911 operator from Montgomery County, Maryland.
It starts off with the operator asking Roske whether he is “thinking of hurting anyone, including yourself?” to which Roske calmly responds, “Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court Justice.”
Next, the operator asks Roske whether he has “access to any weapons?” Roske replies, “I brought a firearm with me. There is pepper spray. There is a knife.”
The 911 operator then asks Roske whether he is “on foot” or “in a car.” “I’m just standing in front of the house,” Roske says.
“What were you coming to do, just to hurt him?” asks the operator, to which Roske simply replies, “correct.”
The remainder of the ad
The final 10 seconds of the ad feature a voice-over. The narrator says:
This assassination attempt on a Supreme Court justice should have been a tipping point for Democrats. How far does it have to go before Democrats stop endangering Justices?
As that voice-over is playing, social media posts calling for the assassination of Justice Clarence Thomas could be seen in the background, as could a number of leftwing politicians, including Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), Reps. Maxime Waters (D-CA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and others.
In the caption to their social media post, JCN writes:
Democrats are putting the lives of Supreme Court justices and their families in danger by encouraging radical protestors and refusing to condemn the ongoing threats against the justices. Enough is enough. How far does it have to go before Democrats call for it stop?
The Washington Examiner reports that this new ad, called “Tipping Point,” is one of two ads from JCN that, together, cost roughly $10 million. “Tipping Point” will air in Georgia, Nevada, and Washington D.C.
“We’re hoping that it will encourage [voters] to put some more pressure on the government to enforce our laws protecting our justices,” JNC President Carrie Severino explained.
“We think that these laws that protect our justices should protect justices regardless of what political party appointed them,” Severino added.
