A man was arrested near the home of Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday morning after allegedly threatening to kill the Supreme Court Justice. SCOTUS justices — especially the conservatives ones — have faced intense backlash since the alleged Roe v. Wade decision was leaked, and the left’s rhetoric against those justices hasn't helped. In fact, that rhetoric may be directly responsible for terrifying events like this one.
For example, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened Kavanaugh in March 2020, saying he would “pay the price” if he didn’t vote to uphold Roe v. Wade.
Then there was former White House press secretary Jen Psaki who made it clear that protests at the homes of Supreme Court justices were not condemned by the Biden White House amid outrage following the leaked draft decision regarding Roe v. Wade. Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany took to Twitter to remind us of the president's position on protests outside of judges’ homes.
Here's the former press secretary's statement:
“I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date, and we certainly do continue to encourage that, outside judges’ homes, and that’s the president’s position.”
Of course, the Biden White House press office was quick with some creative damage control. In this case, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates used strategically placed em-dashes and highlighting to suggest that Psaki didn't say what Psaki clearly said:
See what he did there? Yeah, nice try, except pretty much no one was buying it.
