Angry mob of leftist protesters force Justice Kavanaugh to escape D.C. restaurant through back door

Leftist pro-abortion protesters still haven’t accepted the Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow individual states to regulate abortion, and are continuing to try and make life a living hell for the high court’s Republican-appointed justices.

That includes Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was forced to exit a popular Washington D.C. steakhouse through the back door earlier this week after a mob of pro-abortion protesters showed up to harass him outside the front of the restaurant, the Daily Caller reported.

Kavanaugh was unharmed during the incident, but what occurred is still rather concerning given that it was only a few weeks ago that a would-be assassin was arrested outside his home and he and his fellow GOP-appointed jurists continue to be harassed and threatened by mobs of protesters outside their own homes.

Kavanaugh targeted at a restaurant by protesters

The spontaneous protest against Justice Kavanaugh occurred Wednesday night when a leftist protest group, ShutDownDC, learned that Kavanaugh was dining at Morton’s Steakhouse and rapidly organized a mob of protests to demand that he be kicked out and harangued him from outside the restaurant.

According to Politico‘s Daniel Lippman, Kavanaugh himself never actually heard or saw the mob of protesters and was able to finish his dinner in peace, though his security detail hustled him out the back before dessert in order to dodge the angry mob out front.

In response to what happened, a spokesperson for Morton’s said in a statement, “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.”

“Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. 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 added.

Leftists go after restaurant for defending Kavanaugh

That response from Morton’s didn’t go over well at all with the protesters, and the restaurant chain itself soon came under attack by pro-abortion activists who, with some coordination and promotion in a since-deleted tweet thread from leftist activist William LeGate, flooded the restaurant chain with fake reservations and negative reviews.

It didn’t take long for Morton’s to figure out that scheme, though, and the effort to deluge the restaurants with fake reservations nationwide soon came to a halt after Morton’s began to require a credit card hold to guard against no-shows and filed reports about the false reservations with the OpenTable app that was being abused by the protesters.

Politico’s Lippman also noted that Yelp also took notice of the “unusual activity” and temporarily disabled the ability of users to post reviews about Morton’s D.C. location.

Bounties offered for public sightings of justices for rapid protests

Unfortunately, after that plan to attack Morton’s backfired and fell short, the leftist protesters organized by ShutDownDC have once again returned their attention to the GOP-appointed Supreme Court justices and kicked things up a notch by essentially offering bounties for information that will lead to future protests against them in public locations, according to the Washington Examiner.

A tweet from the group offered $50 to anybody who spotted one of the justices in public and $200 if they were still there 30 minutes later when protesters arrived, and specifically placed those bounties on the heads of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh.
