Law enforcement foiled an assassination plot against Justice Kavanaugh over the leaked Roe v. Wade draft decision.
The media has contrived to bury the story under their push for gun control, their Capitol riot hearings, and every other subject that they would like to talk about.
If a Republican had been caught trying to kill a leftist Supreme Court justice over a draft decision leaked by a conservative in the conservative media, it would not only be the top story for weeks, but would lead to calls for…
– the role of Facebook and conservative media in “inculcating violence and extremism”
– every Republican and conservative who ever criticized that particular justice apologize for their role in creating a “climate of hate”
– the impeachment of every conservative justice on the court for possibly having something to do with the leak
and that would be combined with non-stop warnings about “rising right-wing extremism” and the “threat to democracy” requiring more attacks on civil rights, domestic surveillance, and perhaps deploying the National Guard to Washington D.C.
But since it’s Justice Kavanaugh, there’s an awkward shrug.
