Pro-abortion protestors this week reversed course and demonstrated outside of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home in San Francisco. This marks a switch from targeting conservative Supreme Court justices and Catholic churches.
Pelosi on Monday was full of indignation for conservative Supreme Court justices and praise for pro-abortion activists. She said she was “moved” by the “righteous anger” of agitators and accused Republicans of wanting to both punish and control women.
This time, however, it was the Democrats attacked for being “complicit” in the possible striking down of Roe v. Wade. One female protester with a bullhorn declared that the goal is to keep abortion legal and accessible — and not rare.
Pelosi was singled out for stating years ago that Democrats are too focused on the issue and that it should not be a litmus test.
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was also slammed for saying abortion should be “legal, but rare.” The protester added “as if abortion is a tragedy.”
The unrest was touched off last week with the unprecedented leak of a draft Supreme Court decision. The non-binding writing shows five justices on board with ruling in a case before the court that essentially overturns Roe.
The draft, written in February by Justice Samuel Alito, is not final and came well ahead of the final decision expected next month. But that means little to radicals who now descend on justice’s homes, vandalize churches, and now target their Democratic allies.
Early last year leftist radicals vandalized Pelosi’s home with messages advocating universal basic income and rent cancellation. A severed pig’s head was found on the sidewalk.
This is the problem with having groups such as BLM and Antifa ready to pounce at the slightest provocation. When it works in the Democrats’ favor, it’s fine. But when they turn on their handlers, the results can get ugly.
