Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) took on the pro-abortion fanatics aiming to disrupt the Supreme Court in an interview on “Fox & Friends” on Monday. DeSantis compared the Supreme Court blockade, as well as the actions of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s would-be assassin and protesters picketing Supreme Court justices’ homes, to Democrat complaints regarding “insurrections.”

DeSantis said the following:

I think that we have a rule of law in this country, and you don’t get to just have a mob descend on a Supreme Court justice’s house or try to impede the operations of government because there may be a decision you don’t like. That would be considered an insurrection, to stop the court from functioning. And yet they seem to be able to get away with a lot more than if the shoe were on the other foot.

As DeSantis explained, Supreme Court justices have been the target of a multi-pronged left-wing effort to reverse an alleged draft of a Supreme Court opinion that would repeal Roe v. Wade.

On Monday morning, “ShutdownDC” protesters surged the streets surrounding the Supreme Court, calling the court “illegitimate” and seeking to block vehicle access to the building.

This latest effort to influence the court comes shortly after a madman armed with a Glock 17 pistol, a knife, and zipties, among other things, was arrested near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Maryland home on Wednesday and admitted that he planned to murder the judge.

“That was like, not even significant news in a lot of the mainstream media,” DeSantis said of the planned attack, “And not only was it significant because it’s an attack on somebody’s life, [but] they’re trying to change the outcome of decisions that they are concerned that they don’t like, and that is just totally antithetical to a rule of law.”

Pro-abortion activists have engaged in other affronts to judicial impartiality in recent weeks as well. Protesters have committed criminal offenses by marching outside of the justices’ homes, though the Department of Justice (DOJ) has apparently decided against enforcing the law.

Such efforts are ironically occurring as the House January 6th committee continues to rail against the alleged right-wing “insurrection” on live television. Don’t be surprised when these left-wing attacks on the rule of law don’t get the same attention.
