Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) relished in U.S. Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh getting chased out of a restaurant this weekend.
Conservatives piled on Ocasio-Cortez for endorsing “illegal intimidation,” Fox News reported.
Morton’s Steakhouse in D.C defended Kavanaugh, who was forced to flee through the back door, saying, “Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner.”
AOC mocked Kavanaugh over the incident and accused the right of “pearl clutching” in response to pro-abortion unrest.
“Poor guy. He left before his soufflé because he decided half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy within the wrong state lines. It’s all very unfair to him. The least they could do is let him eat cake,” she tweeted.
Conservative commenters like Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton condemned AOC for supporting mob harassment, while others pointed out that AOC was spreading “disinformation” by claiming abortion restrictions will force women to go through with ectopic pregnancies.
“@AOC, a Marxist politician, supports illegal intimidation of Supreme Court justices because she is angry that states are once again able to protect the right to life of unborn human beings,” Fitton tweeted.
Dems reject civility
Many leftists have responded to Kavanaugh being harassed by gleefully making the same dull joke about there being no constitutional right to eat dinner in public. Kavanaugh was one of the conservative justices who recently ruled there is no right to an abortion.
Unlike the “right” to abortion on demand, there is a right to go about in public without being intimidated by strangers. It’s a basic precept of civility. But Democrats, despite all of their moralizing on the topic, don’t believe in “norms” any more than they believe in “democracy.”
Just look at how they have treated Kavanaugh since 2018. They tried to derail his confirmation by smearing him as a gang rapist in the national media. Over the past couple of months, “protesters” have been congregating outside his house, and a man even tried to kill him, but Democrats haven’t said a word in condemnation.
The Biden regime has instead signaled its approval of the “protesters” at Morton’s, as it has done previously with the mobs outside Kavanaugh’s home.
When it comes to power, Democrats don’t believe in playing by any rules. The only “norms” they accept are their norms, which they want to force on everyone else.
