As expected, activists are already cueing up to protest the anticipated strike down of Roe V. Wade, with some groups even plotting to descend upon Supreme Court Justices’ homes.
Some have speculated that this harassment of Court Justices was the primary reason for the Monday night SCOTUS draft leak. Claiming that a public frenzy was intended to serve as a Democrat last-ditch attempt to change the minds of certain Justices before any official decision was made through intimidation.
One progressive activist group known as “Ruth Sent Us” declared today as “walk-by Wednesday,” urging protestors to intimidate “six extremist justices” in their homes – “three in Virginia and three in Maryland.”
These were the targeted Justices: Amy Coney Barrett, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch.
The Left posted a website with the justices' private addresses. Protestors are being asked to go directly to their homes (some have families and small children). Pray hard for the safety of the 5 justices.

According to Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino on Wednesday, these actions should serve as a stark warning of the “lengths to which [protestors] are willing to go in order to undermine the Court’s independence.”
Many have noticed the parallels between the escalation of activists now versus what the nation witnessed during the summer of 2020 after George Floyd’s death.
For example, pay attention to the aggressiveness of language being used by protestors.
“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights,” the Ruth Sent Us group proclaimed. “We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics.”
Protests are forming and being organized across the country, with events like ShutDownDC advertising a “candlelight vigil” for this Saturday evening.
Other protests have felt more reactionary and disorganized in nature, like the ones that took place in Los Angeles and New York overnight thanks to the recent news.
In LA, for instance, police clashed with a group of demonstrators who had gathered outside City Hall to protest the Supreme Court’s possible overturning of Roe v. Wade.
The situation quickly escalated when people started throwing objects at officers, who then deployed non-lethal projectiles and made several arrests, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Signs from the event read: “We need to talk about the elephant in the womb,” “I am a woman not a womb” and “Pro-woman, pro-child, pro-choice.”

It’s important to realize that these threats of violence and harassment from left-wing groups will only increase over the next few months. Which is why some conservative politicians are quickly getting ahead of intimidation tactics to express their willingness to not back down.
As Josh Hawley shared on Twitter about Antifa “scumbags” threatening his family: “They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door.”
“Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence,” he added.
Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel. They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence

Let us hope the SCOTUS Justices won’t be intimidated either.
