President Joe Biden’s White House as well as a whole host of top Democrat politicians and voices are refusing to condemn the actions of pro-abortion protesters against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Late last week Kavanaugh was eating at the swanky Morton’s steakhouse restaurant in Washington DC. A group known as ShutDownDC showed up in the middle of his meal and chased him out the back of the restaurant after demanding the management remove him.
To make it even worse, the radical leftists behind the incident posted on Twitter offering bounties for sightings of the Conservative SCOTUS Justices. They offered $50 for a sighting and $200 if they stick around for 30 minutes so they can get an angry mob together to harass them.
Democrats in power were quick to respond to the incident. However, instead of simply condemning the clear intimidation, they either refused to speak poorly of them or outright defended them.
FOX News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the harassment, to which she said, “people should be allowed to be able to do that (protest)” before adding “This is what a Democracy is.”
She was not the only White House official to defend the antics of ShutDownDC over the weekend. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was questioned about alleged “protests” during an appearance on FOX News Sunday.
When he was asked if it was appropriate for the mob to harass Kavanaugh and the other restaurant goers and target their locations, he responded with “Yep, pretty much.”
Left wing firebrand Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also joined in public discourse around the incident. She mocked Kavanaugh for having to flee with his security out the back door before he could eat his dessert courts. AOC even compared him to the disgraced final Queen of France Marie Antoinette who was publicly executed by an angry mob after declaring if the poor were hungry, “let them eat cake!”
It’s clear that the leadership on the left is standing behind the protesters who harassed Justice Kavanaugh and intend to do so going forward. What do you think their goals are by supporting them? Do you think they just want to stand with their voters or is there something more insidious going on here?
