New polling from the Judicial Crisis Network and CRC Research suggests that American voters largely agree that political violence is not a solution to the problems facing the nation today. Despite an overwhelming number of voters who want the Department of Justice to intervene against all forms of political violence, Attorney General Merrick Garland is picking and choosing which acts of intimidation will be prosecuted based on what might benefit the Democratic regime.
Of the 1,600 registered voters surveyed in July, 58 percent said Garland should enforce federal law prohibiting protests at the homes of Supreme Court justices, with only 30 percent saying he should not. An even higher number, 60 percent, believe President Joe Biden should condemn those kinds of actions as well.
Both Democrats, 52 percent, and Republicans, 71 percent, agree that “seeking other ways to disrupt the justices’ private lives” undermines democracy and should not be tolerated. Eighty-five percent of Republicans and 61 percent of Democrats also say that offering “‘bounties’ for tips about where justices are dining” is “extreme and goes to[o] far.”
Yet, the same DOJ that rushed to capitalize on the National School Boards Association’s collusion with the Biden White House to smear concerned parents as domestic terrorists remained largely unresponsive to the attacks on Republican-nominated justices.
Despite the fact that 84 percent of registered voters “agree that those who engage in acts of vandalism and violence against pregnancy resource centers and churches should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Garland also refused to take action against the widespread assaults on pro-life Americans and their property.
Instead of listening to the demands from senators, faith groups, and pro-lifers for the DOJ to do its job, Civil Rights Division Chief Kristen Clarke, a top DOJ official, smeared pregnancy centers as fake clinics that are “harmful” and “predatory,” all Democrat talking points.
Additionally, Garland released a statement publicly disagreeing with the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision. That particular statement only devoted two sentences to announcing that the DOJ “will not tolerate” violence and threats of violence. Meanwhile, following the Dobbs leak and Garland’s refusal to enforce the federal law prohibiting protests at justices’ homes, a pro-abortion fanatic had shown up at Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house to assassinate him.
While violent leftists called for an “open season” on pro-lifers, the Supreme Court, and its justices, Garland bragged about watching Democrats’ Jan. 6 show-trial hearings and reassured the corrupt corporate media that his prosecutors were doing the same.
Garland’s lack of urgency about the left’s political violence in response to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, even as the AG prepares to indict his party’s main political opposition and those who support him, strongly contrasts with how voters feel the DOJ should operate.
