Justice Samuel Alito has reportedly been moved to an undisclosed location for safety, after leftwing radicals attempting to intimidate conservative justices for considering overruling Roe v. Wade, all in the name of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, listed conservative justices' home addresses online.
Militant leftists, including a group called Ruth Sent Us, are trying to physically intimidate the five justices who are expected to sign the final version of Alito's leaked opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, overruling Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, with the other four justices being Clarence Thomas - appointed by Bush 41 - and the three justices appointed by Donald Trump: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
They are also reportedly targeting Chief Justice John Roberts. This shows the unreasoning nature of their ire, as Roberts' questions during oral argument in Dobbs strongly suggest that he was exploring ways to uphold Mississippi's ban without overruling Roe.
While doxing the justices' home addresses is ostensibly so protesters can go to those justices' homes to protest - which many Americans consider objectionable by itself, and in fact which violates federal law at 18 U.S.C. 1507 - many others also note this could lead to violence, if an activist were to attack a justice or the justice's family.
Rumors around D.C. are that Alito and his family have been moved to an undisclosed location for safety, according to interviews on Fox News and WMAL radio, given the additional opposition he is facing as the writer of the leaked majority opinion.
Ruth Sent Us is a reference to the late Ruth Ginsburg, who passed away in 2020 and whom President Trump replaced with Justice Barrett. Claiming the late justice would condone such things is outrageous, given her friendships with conservative justices and that she was best friends with the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who relentlessly tried to overrule Roe throughout his 30 years on the Supreme Court.
Scalia passed away in 2016 and was succeeded by Gorsuch after Trump took office in 2017. Before that, Scalia and Ginsburg vacationed together with their spouses, went to the opera together, and even sang together. They vigorously disagreed on legal issues in their dueling Supreme Court opinions, but they and their families were very close.
Moreover, Ginsburg criticized Roe v. Wade. She was certainly one of the foremost supporters of a constitutional right to abortion, but she repeatedly said that Roe was badly reasoned and vulnerable to harsh criticism. She even faulted where Roe suggested an abortion right could be found, as she would not even have agreed that a right to abortion is situated in the Constitution's Due Process Clause. Instead, Ginsburg believed that such a right was on firmer footing if it was guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment's Equal Protection Clause.
All that notwithstanding, Ruth Sent Us and other radicals are following a dangerous course by targeting the justices' homes, given that such online hate maps have led to acts of terrorism.
In 2012, the radical-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) posted such a map to the Family Research Council (FRC), a nonprofit that supports "faith, family, and freedom." Leftwing activist Floyd Lee Corkins II used that map to find FRC's offices with firearms and 100 rounds of ammunition, where he shot office manager Leo Johnson but was disarmed before he could assassinate the rest of the staff. Corkins was later convicted of domestic terrorism and imprisoned.
There is a difference between free speech to express opposition and trying to physically intimidate a judge to change his court decision out of fear for his or her family's safety.
You have to admire the stupidity of the left's arguments on RvW:
1. "My body my choice" - that went out the window with vaccine mandates.
2. "It's a woman issue" - they can't define what a woman is.
3. "Pro-life is racist" - Ironically, it's mostly black babies that are aborted. In recent years, 35 - 40% of all abortions were performed on black women, with over 20 million black babies aborted since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. It is without doubt the main reason why the black population remains stagnant in proportion to the entire American population. If anything, it's abortion itself that is racist.
Leftists should just admit they want to be able to commit state sanctioned murder - the only difference here is that they want to use a vacuum cleaner instead of a drone strike.
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood with the express purpose to limit the black population. She was a racist that took action, and became one of the Democrat's most revered heroes. It's sickening.
Democrats have ALWAYS been the party of racism. From defending slavery to writing segregation laws to founding the Ku Klux Klan to murdering black babies, that is the Democrat way. FJB!
Come on FBI, arrest these law-breaking thugs. Unlike the J6 crew, these guys are breaking the law.
