Somehow I don’t think the National Guard will be called out in response to this one. And if it were, the media and its leftist allies would respond with the same hysteria that they did to the efforts to stop the Black Lives Matter attacks on Washington D.C.
#ShutdownDC is planning to block streets adjoining the Court to prevent the justices and their staff from reaching their chambers. Organizers acknowledged their operations go beyond constitutionally protected activity, and they referenced the likelihood of arrests and clashes with law enforcement during a Tuesday night briefing the Free Beacon monitored.
One of our goals would be to expand the current political crisis by shutting down the Supreme Court, one of the organizers said. The group planned the blockade for Monday, June 13, a day when the Court will likely hand down opinions.
#ShutdownDC is concocting its ploy amid continued concerns over the Supreme Court’s security and that of the justices following the unprecedented leak. The Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence arm circulated a memo in May warning of a sharp rise in threats to the High Court. Law enforcement is investigating violent threats from pro-abortion extremists against members of the Court as well as the Court building itself, the memo said.
The Tuesday night briefing included more than 60 activists and was led by four or five organizers, some of whom concealed their identities. The presentation included a detailed tactical plan for blocking access to the Court’s underground parking garage, which is the primary entry and exit point for employees and justices.
#ShutdownDC is part of the whole shadowy nexus of anti-Trump and radical environmental groups that has operated alongside AOC’s DSA, unions and assorted lefty groups and establishment organizations. ShutdownDC was linked to the Jane Fonda environmental protests. It’s one of those groups that’s involved in pretty much any significant lefty D.C. protests. So this goes right back to the entire radical activist complex. Will they be held accountable? Not under Biden, obviously.
But this is an attempt to interfere with the functioning of not only a court, but the nation’s highest court, and the culmination of the work of the entire judicial branch, to intimidate and prevent them from issuing a ruling.
If that’s not an insurrection, what is?
So where’s the National Guard, the months of hearings to determine what people in the Biden administration know about this, and the yearly anniversaries?
