Democrats have enouraged protests at conservative Justices homes despite the clear risk of violence.
Democrats have whipped up threats against the conservative Supreme Court Justices after the leak of Justice Alito’s draft opinion overtuning Roe v. Wade. The conservative Justices home addresses were doxxed, and activist groups have protested outside their houses with the approval of Democrat politicians and even law professors:
- Leaked Draft Supreme Court Opinion Overturns Roe v. Wade, Politico Reports
- Clarence Thomas: “We can’t be an institution that can be bullied”
- Pro-Abortion Activists Hold Crazed Protests At Justices Kavanaugh and Roberts Homes
- Pro-Abortion Activists Target Justice Alito’s Home
- ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Pro-Abortion Activists Protest Outside Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s House
- WaPo Begrudgingly Admits ‘Protests’ Outside Justices’ Homes ‘Appear To Be Illegal’
- Georgetown Law Prof Supports Mobs Protesting at Homes of SCOTUS Justices
The risk from such protests and doxxing is that someone would commit an act of violence against one of the conservative Justices, and that seems to have happened.
The Washington Post reports, Man with weapon detained near Brett Kavanaugh’s home:
A California man carrying at least one weapon near Brett M. Kavanaugh’s Maryland home has been taken into custody by police after telling officers he wanted to kill the Supreme Court justice, according to people familiar with the investigation.
The man, described as being in his mid-20s, was found to be carrying at least one weapon and burglary tools, these people said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. Police were apparently notified that the person might pose a threat to the justice, but it was not immediately clear who provided the initial tip, these people said. The man apparently did not make it onto Kavanaugh’s property in Montgomery County but was stopped on a nearby street, these people said.
Two people familiar with the investigation said the initial evidence indicates that the man was angry about the leaked draft of an opinion by the Supreme Court signaling that the court is preparing to overturn Roe. v. Wade, the 49-year-old decision that guaranteed the constitutional right to have an abortion. He was also angry over a recent spate of mass shootings, these people said.
The FBI and DOJ have been slow to act, and the White House has been slow to condemn the protests, even though the threat of violence was real. The NY Times reports:
Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland said in a statement on Wednesday that he had asked Attorney General Merrick B. Garland in May to increase security outside the justices’ homes.
“I call on leaders in both parties in Washington to strongly condemn these actions in no uncertain terms,” Governor Hogan, a Republican, said. “It is vital to our constitutional system that the justices be able to carry out their duties without fear of violence against them and their families.”
In light of the Kavanaugh news, first question to the White House today should be:
“Does President Biden stand by this?”
PSAKI: “And we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges’ homes and that’s the president’s position.”

Kavanaugh has been a particular target of Democrat vitriol, including by Chuck Schumer:
Seems relevant this morning…
