Democrats sent a clear signal Tuesday that they have no interest in checking violence on the far left.
Led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Democrats shot down a resolution that would have condemned recent attacks on churches and crisis pregnancy centers by pro-abortion extremists, Breitbart reported.
Dems reject resolution
In general, Democrats have condemned the Supreme Court’s repeal of Roe v. Wade as more outrageous than the left’s extreme, violent reaction to the decision.
That would include the illicit and unprecedented leak of the Supreme Court’s opinion, weeks of menacing “protests” outside the homes of conservative justices, and dozens of acts of arson and vandalism.
There have been 50 such attacks on churches and pro-life centers since Roe was overturned in June, and 100 since the Supreme Court’s opinion was leaked the month before, according to LifeNews.
House Democrats rejected a resolution from Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) condemning the violence. Johnson said that Congress’s inaction has emboldened the mob.
“When will this body stand up against the mob? When will we restore law and order?” Johnson asked.
They won’t confront them
Pelosi also declined to condemn pro-abortion extremism when given the chance last month, saying Republicans were “politicizing” the issue.
The Democratic party’s refusal to confront violence coming from their side is part of a wider strategy to paint Republicans as radical and out-of-touch ahead of the midterm elections.
With that aim in mind, House Democrats held a show vote Tuesday to codify gay marriage. All Democrats and 47 Republicans voted yes.
The pro-abortion intimidation campaign has carried on with the more or less explicit sanction of President Biden — who, like Pelosi, is Catholic — and his attorney general.
As unrest over Roe spiraled in June, House Democrats held up legislation to provide more security for the families of Supreme Court justices until their hands were forced by an assassination attempt against Brett Kavanaugh that Biden has yet to acknowledge.
