U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was targeted by more left-wing “protestors” this week.
Politico reports that Kavanaugh was chased out of a D.C. restaurant on Wednesday.
Per the outlet:
“THE RIGHT … TO EAT DINNER”— On Wednesday night, D.C. protesters targeting the conservative Supreme Court justices who signed onto the Dobbs decision overturning the constitutional right to abortion got a tip that Justice BRETT KAVANAUGH was dining at Morton’s downtown D.C. location. Protesters soon showed up out front, called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out and later tweeted that the justice was forced to exit through the rear of the restaurant.
Here’s the referenced tweet from ShutDownDC:
We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women.
Conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices have been targeted by the political left ever since the leak of the court’s draft decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade.
Kavanaugh, in particular, has seen some of the worst of it. Besides this most recent incident, he has even been the target of an assassination attempt.
Fox News reported:
[The suspect] had a Glock 17 pistol, ammunition, a knife, zip ties, pepper spray, duct tape and other items that he told police he would use to break into Kavanaugh’s house and kill him, according to a criminal complaint and affidavit filed in federal court in Maryland. [The suspect] said he purchased the gun to kill Kavanaugh and that he also would kill himself, the affidavit said.
As Wednesday’s incident demonstrates, these attacks on conservative members of the court have not slowed down. And, many are arguing that they haven’t because leftist leaders indirectly continue to support them by not condemning them.
President Joe Biden, himself, provided a case-in-point on Friday.
During his abortion speech, he directly targeted the court and its conservative members.
“We cannot allow an out-of-control Supreme Court working in conjunction with extremist elements of the Republican Party to take away freedoms and our personal autonomy,” Biden said.
As Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo recently put it, “this conveys a clear message to fringe elements of American society [that], mainly, it’s okay to target justices.”
