At the same time Congressional Democrats host televised Jan. 6 witch hunt show trials, leftists are turning a blind eye to political violence and destruction that far-left representatives and senators have repeatedly begged for.
A 26-year-old California man armed with a pistol and other tactical weapons was arrested on Wednesday for attempting to murder U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his home. The man, Nicholas Roske, confessed to detectives that he was inspired to violence after learning from the infamous Dobbs v. Jackson opinion leak that the high court might overturn Roe v. Wade.
A plan to assassinate Kavanaugh and the dozens of assaults on pro-life centers around the country should have sparked countless coverage from the corporate media, who have pegged “domestic terrorism” as the greatest threat to our democracy, as well as endless condemnations from politicians on both sides of the aisle. Yet, the left was largely silent.
When Justice Samuel Alito’s draft Dobbs opinion was prematurely leaked, Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Ron Wyden, Tammy Duckworth, and Reps. Eric Swalwell, Cori Bush, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Tim Ryan all used incendiary language to encourage Americans to reject any SCOTUS decision that hurt their abortion agenda.
That was after politicians such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer had already threatened Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch.
“You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you,” Schumer said in 2020.
The White House finally issued a vanilla statement about the Kavanaugh assassination attempt on behalf of the president on Wednesday.
“President Biden condemns the actions of this individual in the strongest terms, and is grateful to law enforcement for quickly taking him into custody,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates told The Daily Wire.
That statement, however, doesn’t square with Biden’s comments later Wednesday night. Instead of condemning the attempted murder of Kavanaugh, Biden joked about sending his political enemies to jail and threatened that the Supreme Court’s potential decision to overturn Roe v. Wade will cause a “mini-revolution.”
On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who is stalling legislation designed to protect SCOTUS justices while she and her cronies focus on political prosecution regarding Jan. 6, 2021, added to Biden’s nonchalance by claiming that the justices “are protected.”
“Nobody is in danger over the weekend because of our not having a bill,” she told reporters.
This isn’t the first time Democrats and their corrupt corporate media cronies have blown off inconvenient political violence and this likely won’t be their last.
When rioters and arsonists laid siege to the nation’s major cities during the summer of 2020, Democrats and the press cheered them on and bailed them out. The riots that caused billions of dollars in damages were labeled by the propaganda press as “fiery but mostly peaceful.”
When leftists stormed the Supreme Court to protest Kavanaugh’s confirmation, they were heralded by the same outlet that pushed lies fueling the justice’s confirmation battle and Democrats who were upset that Trump had another SCOTUS nominee. The same reaction occurred when climate protesters occupied a federal building.
If you disagree with Democrats, you’re an insurrectionist. But if you’re a Democrat actually inciting violence like Maxine Waters did, of course, you get away with it. If you make an attempt on a Supreme Court justice’s life because a bunch of leftists told you to “fight back,” it is somehow still Republicans’ fault.
Democrats only condemn and exploit political violence when it is convenient for them. Unless their political enemies can somehow be blamed, leftists like Biden, Schumer, and Pelosi will keep ignoring political violence and destruction that can clearly be traced back to them.
