A radical leftist group that is very similar to Antifa is now offering bounties for tips concerning sightings of conservative Supreme Court justices, and former FBI Assistant Director of Intelligence Kevin Brock stated these should be “interpreted as a threat.”
Brock then stated that the whole thing is a “danger to America” if the Justice Department decided to treat threats of violence from the left far more lightly than they do threats from the right.
According to Just the News, a self-described anti-fascist group — which hilariously uses fascism to fight against fascism — posted on Twitter that they would pay up to $250 to workers in the service industry in Washington, D.C., if they would alert the organization to sightings of conservative Supreme Court justices who supported a pro-life abortion law in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which led to Roe v. Wade being overturned.
“DC Service Industry Workers… If you see Kavanaugh, Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Coney Barrett or Roberts DM us with the details!” ShutDownDC posted. “We’ll venmo you $50 for a confirmed sighting and $200 if they’re still there 30 mins after your message.”

“Tucker Carlson mentioned the group’s tweet during his Fox News TV show on Friday, telling his viewers to “flood them with reported sightings until they give up,’” Just the News reported.
While the group stated that they did indeed receive an increase in false sightings of the justices after the Carlson program, they also stated that they had a significant increase in monetary donations.
“The Antifa group’s tweet came after protesters disrupted Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s dinner at a Washington, D.C., steak house last Wednesday, following ShutDownDC tweeting that someone had sent them a tip that he was there,” the report stated
“DM us if you want to join him…we’re sure he can pull up a seat!” the group posted on their social media accounts.
During the segment on Carlson’s show, he stated that the “DOJ has done nothing,” despite the fact the group posted up the offer publicly.
“The threat environment related to the Dobbs decision is crackling right now,” Brock, the former FBI intel chief, went on to say in an interview with Just the News on Tuesday,
“In light of the violence perpetrated by pro-abortion groups against pregnancy centers and pro-life organizations since Dobbs, ‘any call from pro-abortion supporters’ against Supreme Court justices has ‘to be interpreted as a threat by any reasonable person,’ he said,” the report stated.
Brock then argued that the Justice Department should be expected to launch investigations and take proper steps to find out who the individuals behind this group are.
He stated that the “reasonable interpretation” of ShutDownDC’s offer “will be, at minimum, to intimidate justices, and at worst, physically harm them.”
“The overriding concern is that the DOJ is not responding to threats of violence emanating from the left side of the political spectrum as diligently as they are when they emanate from the right side of the political spectrum,” Brock went on to say. “That is a danger to America.”
The DOJ did not respond immediately to the request of a comment.
