Left-wing protestors were spotted protesting outside of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s house on Thursday. The activists played loud music and shouted obscenities. Conservatives have called such protests illegal and called for more protection of the homes of SCOTUS judges.
Douglas Blair, producer and reporter for the Daily Signal, posted the video with the caption reading ” A smaller group decided they wanted to come back without the boombox.”
The protestors can be seen yelling and blasting music while waving a rainbow flag and posters with Barret-Cohen’s face on them.
Blair tweeted that the protestors were playing a song “seemingly” titled, “All you fascists are gonna lose.”
Earlier in May, protestors dressed up in the popular handmaid costumes were seen protesting outside the justice’s house. Despite the visibility of the protest, there were only 7 people there at the time, reported the Daily Signal.
Former Attorney General Bill Barr, who served at the end of the Trump administration, said that some of these protests may be breaking federal law.
“[It’s] not a valid form of protest because it’s a violation of the law. There is time and place for protests, and the federal statute makes it clear if you go to the house of a judge, the residence of a judge to influence the judge in his decisions and demonstrate that that’s a federal crime,” former Attorney General Bill Barr previously told Fox News’ Jesse Watters.
Barr was referencing U.S. code 18 US Code 1503: “whoever corruptly or by threats or force… endeavors to influence, intimidate, or impede any grand or petit juror, or officer in or of any court of the United States… in the discharge of his duty… influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due administration of justice shall be punished.”
Next News network previously reported about another protest outside of Justice Clarence Thomas’ house in May. That protest was met with a police response and shut down without any arrests.
Those protestors at the time also held gratuitous signs with phrases reading: “I’m a vagina voter” and “Keep your religion out of my vagina.”
