It’s about time the Federal Bureau of Investigations starts cracking down on instances of extreme violence against pro-lifers!
To be fair, the Biden administration has kept the FBI pretty busy with locking up political dissidents and targeting conservative parents who don’t want their kids wearing masks or being taught critical race theory in school.
The FBI announced on Thursday they will be investigating a rash of attacks and vandalism targeting anti-abortion activist groups and pregnancy centers across the country.
“The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country,” a spokesperson for the FBI’s national press office said.
“The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities.”
Since the May 2 leak of a draft of a Supreme Court opinion for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization signaling Roe v. Wade will be overturned, there have been pro-abortion terrorists have unleashed a wave of brutal violence.
More than 100 House Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday that calls on the Department of Justice to investigate the incidents as acts of domestic terrorism.
The GOP letter also listed 11 incidents from May and two in June. These incidents involved one in Colorado, two in Maryland, two in Texas, one in Wisconsin, one in Oregon, two in Virginia, two in Washington state, one in North Carolina, and one in the nation’s capital (where the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center was vandalized).
The targets were churches, pregnancy centers, and anti-abortion offices.
Last week, 16 Republican senators, along with a number of national anti-abortion groups, sent a letter to Garland telling him “the criminal acts perpetrated against those who oppose legalized abortion are a clear effort to intimidate or coerce individuals who hold pro-life values.”
The gun-toting suspect who traveled from California to Maryland last week in an alleged plot to kill Brett Kavanaugh in his home over anger that he might help overturn Roe has been indicted by a federal grand jury for an “attempt to assassinate” the Supreme Court justice.
Nicholas Roske, 26, traveled thousands of miles and showed up at Kavanaugh’s house in Maryland after midnight with burglary tools, a knife, a gun, and a pair of special boots with outer soles allowing stealth movement inside a house, though he walked away when he spotted a pair of deputy U.S. marshals, who were part of the Supreme Court justice’s security force, outside Kavanaugh’s home, according to court records.
“This kind of behavior is, obviously, its behavior — we will not tolerate it,” Garland said last week.
But have you noticed the media has said very little about this failed assassination attempt? Can you guess why?
Roske told investigators he was angry about the possibility of the high court overturning Roe and also believed Kavanaugh would play a role in upholding Second Amendment rights and loosening gun laws in a separate high-profile case yet to be decided this term.
GOP Senate leadership also sent a letter to the DOJ on Wednesday demanding answers over a lack of criminal prosecution surrounding “illegal picketing” outside the homes of justices.
The Justice Department did not comment on why it was not enforcing 18 U.S. Code § 1507, which prohibits “pickets or parades” near judge’s homes when such protests are done “with the intent of influencing any judge.”
The White House, however, encouraged protestors to surround the private homes of SCOTUS justices. While still working for Biden, former press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration “encourages” protestors to riot peacefully at their homes.
The House overwhelmingly passed a bill Tuesday to broaden security for justices and their families, with all of the 27 votes opposing the bill coming from Democrats.
Of the ‘no’ votes were lawmakers in the socialist ‘Squad’ coalition, all far-left Defund the Police advocates who spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on private security.
