One of six doxxed Supreme Court Justices, Clarence Thomas, has responded to noisy pro-abortion protesters by saying he and his fellow SCOTUS judges will not “be bullied” by those who show up at their private homes to express their anger over the leaked draft ruling that presages the overturning of “Roe v. Wade.”
But that has not stopped the abortion activists from showing up in large numbers.

Several dozen protesters marched to the homes of the justices Saturday night chanting and carrying signs with profane messages. Police were lined up in front of the justices’ homes. There did not appear to be any attempts to trespass. However, when police at Kavanaugh’s home warned protesters about the illegality of picketing outside the home of a judicial officer the protest got heated and more police arrived. The protesters dispersed afterwards.
Certainly, one might want to offer some measure of attempted balance when studying the protesters, their actions, and their various motives.
After all, regardless of their satisfaction, they - like most residents of America - are forced to pay the salaries and retirements of government officials, including the Justices.
But, of course, the protesters weren’t protesting this fact.
Indeed, they were showing up at the private residences of government employees to protest the fact that these government employees appear to be ready to hand back to states what is, according to their Constitution, supposed to be a state issue: the definition of, and punishment for, intra-state capital murder and murder-for-hire.
This is, of course, the murder of babies in the womb, an issue the adjudication of which - for nearly five decades - has been inappropriately usurped by the feds, and which the pro-abortion club often claims is a “private matter” between a woman and her doctor.
Or, as The View host Whoopie Goldberg blurted it’s a decision between, get this:
My doctor, myself and my child!
Meanwhile, like Goldberg, the protest hypocrites who ceaselessly prattle about privacy also enthusiastically arrived at the private homes of the SCOTUS judges.
Because again, it’s not about being forced to pay for judges who operate in the government, it’s about the fact that those judges in the government ruled to uphold federalism and the rules of the government. And of course, these protesters so greatly adore the murder that they erroneously depict as privacy they went to the private homes of the judges to protest in favor of that so-called “privacy.”
Makes complete sense.
On Twitter, the Daily Signal’s Douglas Blair posted photos of some of the protesters, allowing viewers to see the extent of their logic, which included a sign reading, “Abortion saved my family…”

Again, try to figure that one out.
Nowhere to be seen was any indication that these people oppose the existence of the state or police funded by state taxation, or that they oppose the statutes purportedly protecting them from aggression by others. Indeed, most Americans will have a difficult time finding a so-called “abortion rights advocate” who doesn't believe that the polis, aka the “government,” should stop people from harming or robbing other people, or punish them should the criminal acts not be prevented.
Yet these abortion advocates won't give thought to the fact that fetuses are, by definition, human lives as well.
And they won’t acknowledge the fact that this is a state issue, and that, under the Equal Protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, the U.S. Constitution requires all states that have created statutory prohibitions against murder or attempted murder to apply those prohibitions equally.
If they want to be protected by government, they must afford that protection to everyone, from a fetus, to an elderly person.
Curiously, the same kinds of “privacy advocates” who doxxed the Justices and/or used the information to show up near their homes also did so in the name of now deceased former Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Writes Lizzy Murica for Law Enforcement Today, the organization called “Ruth Sent Us” heavily promoted the idea of protesting near the Justice’s residences and offered info on the streets on which the judges live:
On its homepage, Ruth Sent Us calls for ‘Walk-By Wednesday,’ scheduled for Wednesday, May 11, 2022, to occur at the homes of six Supreme Court justices. The site characterizes its targets as ‘extremists’ and ‘six Christian fundamentalist Justices.’
Whether that latter description is true is debatable, and it’s completely irrelevant to the matter of honestly deciding cases on appeal that are brought before the SCOTUS as an appellate court within the U.S. constitutional system.
And, as Frederic J. Frommer writes for the liberal prayerbook called The Washington Post, even pro-abortion Ginsberg thought the “Roe” decision was the wrong one to advance the issue.
’Doctrinal limbs too swiftly shaped, experience teaches, may prove unstable. The most prominent example in recent decades is Roe v. Wade,’ Ginsburg said at a New York University Law School lecture. ‘A less-encompassing Roe, one that merely struck down the extreme Texas law and went no further on that day … might have served to reduce rather than to fuel controversy,’ she added.
Overall, Ginsberg did support federalizing the issue. But on more than one occasion, she signaled her dissatisfaction with the “Roe” ruling that established the fifty-year-long federal hegemony over abortion.
Regardless of how one feels about the leak, or about “Roe,” it certainly seems worthwhile to question the double-standards of the protesters, and to wonder why Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki did not speak out against this kind of activity.
Perhaps she has no problem with people protesting at the private residences of government employees who actually uphold their oaths to the U.S. Constitution.
Goodness knows, she and the rest of the Biden administration seem to hold contempt for the Constitution as a matter of course, so this silence fits right in.
