While conservatives are accused of being violent insurrectionists if they attended the Trump rally in Washington D.C., leftists have no problem with initiating actual violence in the name of what they call “justice.”
According to New American, lefists groups are planning to storm Washington D.C., if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade this summer, which would essentially make abortion illegal federally.
The 1973 ruling legalized abortion in the United States, leading to the deaths of millions of unborn American babies.
New American reported:
#ShutDownDC plans to block streets near the Court in D.C. as part of a plot to stop justices and their staff from having access to their chambers. Organizers recognize that their planned actions fall into illegality, and even acknowledged the probability of violent confrontations with police.
The Department of Homeland Security circulated a memo in May that put the Supreme Court on alert of threats. Law enforcement is currently looking at threats from pro-abortion individuals to justices and staff at the Court building.
One organizer noted according to the Washington Free Beacon that, “One of our goals would be to expand the current political crisis by shutting down the Supreme Court,” The outlet also reported that “the group planned the blockade for Monday, June 13, a day when the Court will likely hand down opinions.”
The Washington Free Beacon said the briefing detailed a “tactical” plan to bar access to the Supreme Court’s parking garage, the entry point for Justices and court staff. The plan also includes the blocking of two points on 2nd street near the High Court and a third location would also be blockaded, both being busy roads for commuters.
“To coincide with the blockade, #ShutDownDC is planning a rally in front of the Court on First St., which lies between the U.S. Capitol and the Court’s marble plaza. Organizers described the rally as a “low-risk” location, in contrast to the blockade posts where they anticipate arrests and skirmishes with police,” the Washington Free Beacon noted further.
“It’s possible we will see many different law enforcement agencies, as we’ve become used to,” an organizer said.
Organizers have admitted that the actions they plan to take are illegal but did not name any specific Justices that would be targeted and said that the objective was simply to disrupt the court and its proceedings.
“In this space we may talk about some action ideas that stretch the bounds of constitutionally protected speech,” a slide shown to attendees noted.
“Avoid saying anything you wouldn’t want to see on Fox News,” it added.
It was also noted by another organizer that the group was behind the illegal demonstrations that were conducted outside the private residences of Supreme Court Justices after an unofficial opinion by Justice Alito hinted that Roe v Wade may be overturned.
One organizer bragged, “We were the first to hold an action at Brett Kavanaugh’s house, and then recently we held an action at Samuel Alito’s house,”
“This is a crisis moment for democracy and for our rights, so we need as many new folks leveling up in their mobilization as possible,” the organizer said.
It will be interesting to see whether these left-wing extremists will be met with the same vitriol in Washington D.C., as Trump supporters were when they questioned the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.
