(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The Biden administration has moved from tacitly endorsing mob protest at the homes of conservative justices to now overtly encouraging abortion activists to descend on the justices.
After tap-dancing around a reiteration that President Joe Biden, while refusing to publicly condemn mob intimidation, has consistently held “that violence, threats, and intimidation of any kind have no place in political discourse,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki actively encouraged mob protest and menace.
“So, I know that there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes,” Psaki said at a Tuesday press briefing. “And that’s the president’s position.”
The “peaceful protest” that the White House encouraged has already forced Justice Samuel Alito to leave his home because of safety concerns and threats, which have steadily escalated since the leak of a draft majority opinion that indicated the court was ready to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The radical abortion group Jane’s Revenge on Tuesday issued a violent threat to anybody opposing baby-killing, while apparently savoring in the revelation that they were behind the firebombing of a pro-life office.
“We have run thin on patience and mercy for those who seek to strip us of what little autonomy we have left,” the group stated in its self-proclaimed First Communique.
“As you continue to bomb clinics and assassinate doctors with impunity, so too shall we adopt increasingly extreme tactics to maintain freedom over our own bodies.”
If that wasn’t enough peaceful protest for Psaki, the group continued, “Next time the infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive. Medical imperialism will not face a passive enemy.
“Wisconsin is the first flashpoint, but we are all over the US, and we will issue no further warnings,” Jane’s Revenge declared.
The message was embraced by various antifa and anarchist groups who were eager to join the mostly peaceful protest movement encouraged by the White House.
“Honestly I don’t know what the fascists on the supreme court were expecting,” one activist said.
“They don’t realize that they’ve been backing us into a corner and we’ve all fu**ing had enough at this point.
Multiple individuals express a desire for recruitment. “OMG where TF Can I sign up?” asks one. (Somewhat surprisingly no anarchists on the thread give the user a hard time for thinking he/she should wait to be recruited rather than simply acting.) pic.twitter.com/wTDZ3xuzAO

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, blasted the Biden administration for its weak and violence-inciting response to the growing mob protests, which most Democrats have failed to overtly condemn.
“None of these Democrats care,” Cruz said on Fox News.
“Joe Biden won’t condemn it. The White House won’t condemn the leak.
“Instead, they sit back and say, ‘oh, isn’t that interesting, you’re just passionate, as Nancy Pelosi says, as Jen Psaki says,” Cruz blasted.
Drawing an apt comparison, Cruz said the country is about to get “a replay of 2020, a replay of the Black Lives Matter and antifa riots.”
“It is disgusting to see Joe Biden and the entirety of the Democrat party turn a blind eye,” Cruz said.
“These radicals are inviting violent directed at our judiciary and directed at the rule of law.”
It’s disgraceful that Democrats are championing the radicals who are protesting at Justices’ homes and protesting in churches. pic.twitter.com/ANgiJgk5gu
