What Team Biden has so far done in response to the doxxing and attempted intimidation of the Supreme Court justices following the leak of Alito’s abortion opinion is disgusting: in not speaking out against the left’s horrific, cartel-like attempt to intimidate the agents of justice, the Biden Administration has acted absolutely disgracefully.
That, at least, was the message that Texas Senator Ted Cruz had when he appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” and tore into the Biden White House for so far refusing to condemn the attempted intimidation of the Supreme Court through doxxing and “protests” at the houses of the justices
Speaking about what those left-wing groups are doing to try to force the Supreme Court to do what they want and Team Biden’s refusal to condemn them, Cruz said:
“We have got left-wing groups now that have published the addresses of justices. The intent of this clerk was to bully and threaten and intimidate the justices to changing their votes.
“And I got to say, this week, it was shameful that the White House refused to condemn violent protesters threatening the families of the Supreme Court.”
Continuing, Cruz hammered home the point that Biden knows what’s going on and intentionally refusing to speak out against the attempted intimidation of the conservative justices, saying that Biden’s refusal to speak out is threatening their lives:
“It is disgraceful. And Joe Biden used to be chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Joe Biden knows it’s disgraceful.
“He’s literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they’re unleashing. It’s the same thing we saw with Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, where the left embraced them. And now they’re embracing mob violence to get their partisan outcome.”
Cruz has a point. The President of the United States should not be sitting quietly by as black-clad thugs show up at the homes of justices of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land, in an attempt to force the justices to vote a certain way.
Thuggish intimidation of justices and demands that they toe a certain political line is behavior that happens in a narcostate or banana republic, not a functional nation like the United States of America used to be. Yet now it’s happening here and Slow Joe couldn’t be bothered to even comment on it.
Fortunately for America, the justices are so far not intimidated by the left and aren’t backing down. Justice Clarence Thomas, for instance, said that the court can’t be “bullied” into voting a certain way. Similarly, the five justices that voted to overturn Roe are reportedly still voting the same way.
But, regardless of the actual outcome in this case and whether the five conservatives stand tall or back down, a dangerous precedent has been set.
In not speaking out against the attempted intimidation of justice, Slow Joe has essentially given the green light for future political figures to throw mobs against judges that vote the wrong way, further pushing America over the anarchic edge.
