A week of civil unrest has followed a leaked Supreme Court “opinion” indicating a probable coming vote to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.
The leak was published last Monday. Last Wednesday, progressives published the home addresses of conservative justices. Last Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn militant attempts to intimidate or harm conservative justices.
Many believe Psaki’s comments indicated the White House condoned intimidating conservative justices, hoping such tactics would prompt them to reverse their position on Roe v. Wade.
Not surprisingly, radical left protestors took to the streets over the weekend.
Bowing to pressure to help rein in the radical and sometimes illegal activity tacitly endorsed by his party, on Monday, a day after a protestor threw a “Molotov cocktail” at the pro-life Wisconsin Family Action group (WFA), the White House released this statement:
“President Biden strongly condemns this attack and political violence of any stripe. The President has made clear throughout his time in public life that Americans have the fundamental right to express themselves under the Constitution, whatever their point of view. But that expression must be peaceful and free of violence, vandalism, or attempts to intimidate.”
Psaki followed-up statement by tweeting the President’s condemnation of the attack.
WFA President Julaine Appling reportedly told police that someone had thrown the flaming “cocktail” into her offices at roughly 6 a.m. on Sunday.
The exterior of the building was graffitied with the statement: “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.”
Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes tweeted a statement many view as soft and forced:
“The Madison Police Department understands members of our community are feeling deep emotions due to the recent news involving the United States Supreme Court. Early Sunday morning, our team began investigating a suspicious fire inside an office building on the city’s north side. It appears a specific non-profit that supports anti-abortion measures was targeted.
“Our department has and continues to support people being able to speak freely and openly about their beliefs. But we feel that any acts of violence, including the destruction of property, do not aid in any cause. We have made our federal partners aware of this incident and are working with them and the Madison Fire Department as we investigate this arson.”
The police department is expected to lead a press conference later today. This is a developing story.
