#ShutDownDC’s Attempt To Shut Down SCOTUS A Flop

#ShutDownDC’s Attempt To Shut Down SCOTUS A Flop

Large police presence and weak turnout seem to have kept the situation under control.

As I noted Sunday, #ShutDownDC was planning a huge event that would encircle the Supreme Court building and shut down all the streets around it.

Justices are not elected and must follow the law, not public opinion, so this isn’t a political protest in the acceptable sense. No number of people turning out to make their feelings known matters unless the issue is one before Congress, the sole Constitutionally-established legislative branch of government and one whose members depend on popular support for their political lives. The intent of amassing radical loons to surround the Court can only be to intimidate the Court into issuing a decision the angry mob demands.

As it turned out, however, not a lot of people turned up for the lawless intimidation and coercion attempt, and there was a large police presence that kept things from getting out of control.

Given that Team Hillary has recently taken over Black Lives Matter, it’s rather surprising that they don’t have their rent-a-mobs on hand to back up the pro-infanticide brigade.

Or is it? (archive link)

This is always what happens when you let radicals become your brownshirts and give them free rein to commit crimes against law-abiding citizens in the name of your cause. They eventually turn on you.

Interesting language here, they are “holding” the intersections? (archive link)

Anyway, not the banner day for shutting down SCOTUS, but then, they are waiting for the end of term when the decision is most likely to be released. So DC can expect these shutdowns to continue on each release date, possibly with growing numbers.

Not sure why they couldn’t “deploy” whatever grotesquerie they had planned. Possibly the police presence? Possibly the lack of news media there to get their message out far and wide? Possibly waiting for larger crowds? Who knows.

Anyway, the whole thing was pretty much a dud, even from their own reports. Antagonizing establishment Democrats is a bad plan, though, and they will indeed find themselves political prisoners alongside the J6 paraders if they push that line.

    They forget to check the law. They also forgot to read the constitution. Did they think they could shut down one of the three parts of our government???? the executive , the legislative, and the judiciary.

      Yes. Yes, they did think that. They even think they succeeded.

      Obviously, they don’t care about the law, or the Constitution, or about the real world. They have constructed an alternative reality in their heads, and they now demand that we all join them there.

#ShutDownDC is not viable. Karmic irony.

    “Given that Team Hillary has recently taken over Black Lives Matter, it’s rather surprising that they don’t have their rent-a-mobs on hand to back up the pro-infanticide brigade.”

    Maybe a group named “[x] Lives Matter” promoting abortion was too ironic even for them.

    If they could actually shut down DC, the entire country would owe them a huge debt of gratitude.

Street theater didn’t work in ‘Billy Jack’ and it won’t work here either. Even the vaunted BLM ‘mostly peaceful’ protests have moved the needle in the opposite direction by frightening the heck out of folks. The fear turned to anger as nothing was done in response. The antics at the homes of the Justices are simply PO folks by demonstrating the hypocrisy of d/prog relative to actions designed to intimidate and impede govt functions.

I guess they couldn’t afford Ray Epps daily rate for crowd motivation and direction

    henrybowman in reply to buck61. | June 13, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Ray Epps is only available for gigs that screw conservatives.
    Shelter Hope Pet Shop in CA sent him a free weasel.

Just part of a larger army of BLM, Antifa thugs, crazy teachers, demented ‘feminists’, and Soros prosecutors.

As bad as things are, they’re about to get much, much worse:

AG Garland’s Ominous Warning to Trump: I’m Watching the Jan. 6 Hearings… and I Can Assure You Jan. 6 Prosecutors are Watching as Well:

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/06/ag-garlands-ominous-warning-trump-watching-jan-6-hearings-can-assure-jan-6-prosecutors-watching-video/

Sadly disappointed it was, wanted to see if rioting for baby killing would be as protected as I think it would be.

One thing I always notice – the people that show up for these democrat led insurrection attempts always look diseased, like they crawled out of a sewer.

I think they held back thinking it’s hard enough for people to ignore the Jan 6 hearings so you can’t expect them to also ignore their SCOTUS nonsense at the same time. We are being overloaded with big things to ignore and it’s wearing thin.

It’s not a flop until the opinion gets released.

Love how many are wearing masks too.

Ah, those nasty white supremacists trying to stop a practice that impacts population growth in non-white demographics more than in white ones.

I really don’t think these people have thought this through.

I am ashamed of the area where I grew up. It continues to see the killing of a child as the sacrament of fulfilled womanhood.

    Milhouse in reply to gonzotx. | June 14, 2022 at 1:33 am

    For once you’re right. Trump is not a conservative; he’s all about himself, and he’s angry at Brooks for having pointed out the obvious truth, that the 2020 result is final and cannot be reversed even if iron-clad proof were to emerge of its fraudulence. There just is no way to reverse it. It was over once the electors voted, and certainly once the count was held. But Trump doesn’t like hearing the truth.

      taurus the judge in reply to Milhouse. | June 14, 2022 at 8:34 am

      No Milhouse, you are incorrect. (I know this actually 2nd hand from the source and not from media spin but that’s way beyond the scope of a post)

      Also, FYI, I do NOT agree with the “way” trump did this but agree with it (in principle) understanding the real reason. I’m not defending his actions on this specific subject.

      Here it is.

      Trump is in fact a Conservative ( most of his “illusion” is media generated spin- he was a ” Traditional Democrat” but never a “liberal” and much of what he did was business motivated as CEO’s in media typically do)- That’s just the preamble. I’ve heard this from the source himself long before he ever ran for anything.

      Trump knows full well there is no “undoing” and he has never asked for that ( more media spin accepted as fact but never actually said). He did try to stop the process legally but as i was informed, discovered the true level of the theft combined with the RINO support and had to back off to fight another day.

      That sets the stage.

      Trump’s “beef” is with the issue on Brooks that the election was not ‘stolen”. (period)

      It was but that’s another subject and beyond the scope of this post or thread even.

      This is important because both the left and RINO want the sheeple to “accept” that Trump LEGITIMATELY LOST. ( yet they cant identify these 81 million Biden voters and stymie all efforts to conduct a good and proper investigation which would “prove” trump LEGITIMATELY LOST and shut him up forever)

      They want this “forgotten” because:

      They know the legal repercussions should a proper investigation be done for stealing

      They know the “fruit of the vine” such as J6 and other political persecutions would turn against them

      They know the left and Rino would almost cease to exist ( and businesses would suffer that support them

      They know that “big tech” would be reigned in and not be “masters of the universe”

      They know the real “puppet masters” would be unmasked ( and acted against just like 07 December)

      Trump’s acts have nothing to do with sour grapes or reversing anything- it has to do with bringing justice and restoring law and order.

      I have just given you the facts on this matter- what you chose to accept ( or not) is up to you.

        Excellent summation Taurus.

        The republican establishment participated in the election theft. And they want us to accept the result as accurate and correct, including the laughable 81 million Dopey Biden voters.

        The republican party is our problem. They are traitors to freedom and liberty. People that push to “move on” are with them.

        “Trump’s acts have nothing to do with sour grapes or reversing anything- it has to do with bringing justice and restoring law and order.”

        Absolutely.

      Barry in reply to Milhouse. | June 15, 2022 at 11:52 am

      milhouse has always been a neverTrumper, 100%. And that is because he supports the left.

      The election was stolen. But milhouse wants us to “move on” just like that POS Brooks.

      No one should move on. Letting them steal an election is just the opposite of freedom.

      Trump should bring it up at every opportunity. And if you are running for office and try to ignore it then you’re not fit to represent our republic.

So let me get this straight. There was an announcement of some sort of demonstration against one of the branches of government, to which law enforcement brought out extra personnel, blocked areas with real barriers, and made it clear that if protestors got violent, they would be arrested and charged. As a result, the protest happened, no real violence ensued, and everybody went home without the risk of the FBI breaking down their doors at 3am and hauling them into solitary confinement for over a year with the threat of a felony trial on every-changing charges in front of an anti-you biased judge and jury…

Odd how such things happen in one direction.

I don’t understand something. Why is this not “instigating a riot” or “interfering with justice”

The protesters should be arrested and fined for deliberately obstructing traffic. A small band of protesters should not be allowed to inconvenience so many motorists. The group should also be ordered to pay for the increased security costs associated with protecting the SCOTUS judges, employees and property.

One day’s activity for this group is clearly not the end of the story. This will necessarily have to continue until the bitter end of the Court’s decisions this season. By then, we hope the J6 road show will wind down (or will it ever?), and more cases will be revealed of unequal treatment of these protesters versus those for other causes.

The big teal banner is from Extinction Rebellion, a pack of lunatics that believe humanity should be exterminated to “save the planet”. Just another example that all leftist “protests” end up pulling in every group under the sun, and the numbers are always over-inflated as few are actually there for the stated reason.

Roberts needs to release the Roe decision ASAP, not wait. These are unusual times that require unusual measures. Until the final decision is released, there is an incentive to assassinate a conservative judge..

(Not my original idea. Read it somewhere yesterday.)

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to Free State Paul. | June 14, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Problem is, the Dobbs decision will be the last one of the term, as massive violence is to be expected after the decision is issued. While that isn’t rational, it is human nature. Most people invested in abortion rights are probably hoping that Roberts is able to moderate the decision before it is issued. When that doesn’t happen, there is likely to be an explosive reaction in response, and the Justices would be prudent to send their families on “vacation” before they issue Dobbs.

      Barry in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | June 15, 2022 at 12:01 pm

      Likely true. I could care less if they shut down DC, burn it all down is fine with me.

      If we’re real lucky the abortionists will get aborted.

Perhaps the Supreme Court is playing a little counter-game of their own. By not releasing the Dobbs decision, they will fatigue the protestors. If these people intend to come out daily in expectation, and the Court holds the release of Dobbs until the very end, by the time they release it the crowds will be a fraction of what they started out as.

Hard to take a group seriously when they threaten the court with puppets

The_Mew_Cat | June 14, 2022 at 9:31 pm

This was obviously not a serious effort to shut down the Court. Serious efforts on the Left always have big dollar funding, from Soros and the like. They can bring out the required numbers. Soros is clearly putting his money elsewhere.
