Ugly protests erupted outside the homes of several Supreme Court justices Saturday night.
An angry mob showed up in Chief Justice John Roberts’ neighborhood as well as Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.
Imagine what would’ve happened had Trump supporters marched on the home of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. President Biden would have called out the military, Congress would have called for hearings, and CNN anchors would have soiled themselves.
It turns out the protests may, in fact, be illegal.
“According to 18 U.S.C. 1507 – which relates to Obstruction of Justice – anyone who has the intent of ‘interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the tent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer’ and pickets or parades in or near a court building or residents ‘occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness or court officer’ will face a fine or imprisonment of one year,’ the New York Post reports.
If that’s the case, police should arrest every person protesting outside the homes of the Supreme Court justices. They should be treated just as harshly as those arrested for the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Tonight’s protests were nothing more than an attempt to terrorize the third branch of government and bully them into changing their decision on Roe v. Wade.
That, ladies and gentleman, is what a judicial insurrection looks like.
