Democrats in the House block a bill which would increase protection of Supreme Court Justices and their families
Since the leaking of the impending Roe v Wade decision last month, protestors and thugs have been out in force outside SCOTUS Justices’ homes, threatening and intimidating them.
Wednesday, an armed man was detained for threatening to kill Justice Kavanaugh over the Roe decision.
That same day, House Democrats blocked a Senate-passed bill, the Supreme Court Police Parity act, which would increase protections for SCOTUS Justices and their families.
That bill was passed unanimously by the Senate over a month before the House tried to take it to a vote only to be blocked by Democrats. Why?
Psaki:”I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date. And we certainly do continue to encourage that outside Justices homes. And that’s the president’s position.”
Schumer: “I want to tell you – Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch – you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
The Democratic Party is unhappy with the SCOTUS decision and wants it to be changed, that much they are open about. The types of comments officials in the Senate, House, and White House have made, and the holding of this bill hostage, indicate that not only are they in favor of the protests, but that they have no interest in protecting the Justices at all.
To many it seems like a coordinated Democrat effort to use protestors to intimidate the Court.
The intimidation tactics are unlawful, illegal, and morally wrong, yet there is no action being taken against them.
The threats of violence and the plot to kill Kavanaugh did not stir the Democrats to vote for the bill which would secure the Justices against violence.
Schumer said the quiet part out loud before all this even happened–“you won’t know what hit you” is a clear threat.
