Twitter finally suspends account of leftist activist group RuthSentUs that doxxed and targeted Supreme Court justices’ homes

The private homes of Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices were specifically and repeatedly targeted by angry pro-abortion protesters throughout May and June following the leaked draft copy of the Dobbs ruling that overturned the abortion rights precedent set by 1973’s Roe v. Wade.

Those protests outside the justices’ homes were directly attributable to a leftist activist group known as Ruth Sent Us, which publicly posted the home addresses, and now more than two months later, Twitter has finally suspended that group’s account, the Daily Wire reported.

The suspension is presumably due to the account’s gross violation of the social media platform’s terms of services and rules against targeted harassment and posting of private information, also known as “doxxing.”

However, the actual reason for the suspension is unclear, as Twitter declined to respond to requests for comment, what tweet served as the final straw to make Twitter decide to suspend the account, or why it had taken more than two months and numerous apparent violations before such action was finally taken.

Account finally suspended

Daily Wire reporter Mary Margaret Olohan posted a screenshot of the suspended @RuthSentUs account and then explained the likely reason for the belated action taken against the account.

“Ruth Sent Us is the group that published a map of the Supreme Court Justice’s homes and encouraged protestors to go to them. Also posted content like this: ‘We’ll be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic Churches have condoned for centuries,'” she wrote.

The reporter noted that Google had taken down the map displaying the justices’ homes shortly after the activist group had posted it, but not before the damage had been done and the information had been spread far and wide.

Group has targeted churches and other pro-life organizations as well as Supreme Court justices

The leftist activist group, which purports to act on behalf of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — even though Ginsburg would likely be horrified by and disapprove of the group’s tactics — went beyond simply posting online the home addresses of conservative Supreme Court justices and organizing protests outside those homes, however.

According to a Fox News report in June, the RuthSentUs group had also posted tweets specifically targeting Justice Amy Coney Barrett, her children, and their church and school — a post that just so happened to coincide with the arrest of a would-be armed assassin outside the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, though it is unclear if that individual had been motivated by the group’s tweets or obtained Kavanaugh’s address via the group’s map.

The activist group also posted countless threats and calls for direct action against Catholic churches and institutions, other pro-life advocacy groups, and even crisis pregnancy centers that assist women dealing with an unaffordable or unplanned pregnancy as an alternative to abortion.

It is a good thing that the RuthSentUs account has finally been suspended by Twitter — arguably two months too late — but the social media platform ought to explain to the American people what took so long and why previous apparent violations, not to mention numerous reports about those violations, were allowed to stand as long as they did.
