Leftists were incensed last month when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the constitution does not contain any right to abortion, with some protesting outside the homes of conservative SCOTUS justices.
Others have tried confronting them publicly, with Justice Brett Kavanaugh being forced out of Morton’s Steakhouse last week. The restaurant has now been accused of entering “the culture wars.”
According to NewsBusters columnist Kevin Tober, Morton’s issued a statement in which it condemned last Friday’s incident.
“Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant,” Tober quoted the statement as reading.
“Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner,” it continued.
“There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency,” the statement concluded.
Those words will likely have little impact on pro-abortion extremists, some of whom gloated over Kavanaugh’s harassment on Twitter.
We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women.

Politico focuses on restaurant
Yet Tober noted that rather than focus on the mob’s outrageous behavior, Politico published an article in its “Playbook” newsletter which alleged that Morton’s call for decency “could just inflame things.
No bias here! According to Politico, Morton’s steakhouse was “steer[ing] right into the middle of the culture wars” by issuing a statement that one of their patrons has a right to eat dinner in peace. pic.twitter.com/NU0ZdslhZC

“Apparently it’s a culture war for a restaurant to defend the right of their patrons to eat in peace and not be bullied by an angry mob, and forced out of the establishment,” Tober observed.
“Of course, they didn’t take issue with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) when she took to Twitter to mock Kavanaugh and Morton’s desire to have a peaceful atmosphere in the restaurant,” he added.
