Back in the heady days of 2020, Schumer sent a scathing, potentially threatening message to the more conservative justices on the Supreme Court, attacking them on the topic of abortion and saying:
“You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
He later apologized for those remarks and tried to tone down what he said and the way he said it, saying:
“I’m from Brooklyn, we speak in strong language. I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. I never, never would do such a thing. And Leader McConnell knows that, and Republicans who are busy manufacturing outrage over these comments know that too.”
Despite that, many have pointed to his words and the sort of attitude they epitomize in the wake of the assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh, with a deranged leftist showing up at his house with a firearm, knife, and burglary equipment in an assassination attempt apparently related to Justice Kavanaugh’s signing onto the leaked Alito opinion in Dobbs.
One such person who slammed the Democrats, particularly Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, over that attitude and assassination attempt was Texas Senator and (sometimes) conservative firebrand Ted Cruz.
He, appearing on Hannity, said:
“The Democrat Party today is the party of mob violence. They’re the party — Schumer knew what he was saying when he said, ‘You have unleashed the whirlwind.’ He was unleashing the radicals. You look at this lawless, very likely left-wing law clerk that leaked the decision. The reason the decision was leaked was to allow threats and bullying to come at the justices.
“Listen, a week ago, we saw a Supreme Court justice, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, threatened and a man arrested for attempted murder. Why? Because the left-wing radicals knew where his home was, and the White House was encouraging those radicals to go to his home where they were threatening his children.
“It’s been a week and Joe Biden still has not condemned the attempted murder of a sitting Supreme Court justice. And let’s be clear, why do they want to murder that Supreme Court justice? Because they’re willing to essentially commit a revolution — an insurrection, to use their favorite term — against a branch of government because they want to change the vote on a pending decision of the Supreme Court. It is shameless, and it is also a violation of criminal law.“
While Cruz mostly attacked Schumer, he also turned to attack Attorney General Merrick Garland, who he described by saying “Merrick Garland has become, perhaps, the most political attorney general in the history of this country.”
Cruz, as evidence for that, pointed to the disparity in how parents protesting the school boards out of a desire to get wokeness out of schools were treated by Garland (harshly) and how the leftists protesting outside of the houses of Kavanaugh and others are being treated (little is being done, despite their attempts to intimidate or influence the justices being a crime).
