White House Gives Tacit Endorsement for Protesting at Justices’ Homes

'Look, I think the president’s view is that there’s a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across this country... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The White House gave a winking endorsement and nudging support Thursday to leftist groups that have doxxed conservative justices on the Supreme Court and encouraged activists to invade private property to protest the court’s leaked opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade.

When asked in a Thursday press briefing if President Joe Biden was concerned that there could soon be radical activists protesting on someone’s private residence, White House press secretary Jen Psaki replied, “I don’t have an official U.S. government position on where people protest.”

That likely sparked a fervid outbreak of anarchical visions for activist groups like Ruth Sent Us and ShutDownDC, which are planning protest marches at the homes of conservative justices Amy Coney Barrett, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch.

“You guys spent some time yesterday talking about what you think are the extreme wings of the Republican Party,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki.

“Do you think the progressive activists that are now planning protests outside of justices’ houses are extreme?”

Psaki again gave those “progressive activists” a pass.

“Peaceful protest?” she said. “No. Peaceful protest is not extreme.”

“But some of these justices have young kids,” Doocy countered.

“Their neighbors are not all public figures, so would the president think about waving off activists that want to go into residential neighborhoods in Virginia and Maryland?”

Psaki again refused to outright condemn that type of social disrupting families with kids.

“We certainly encourage people to keep it peaceful and not resort to any level of violence,” she generalized, before trying to switch topics without providing specifics and circle back to comments from yesterday.

“Not about yesterday, just about moving forward,” Doocy pressed.

“These activists posted a map with the home addresses of the Supreme Court justices,” he said. “Is that the kind of thing this president wants to help your side make their point?”

The inferred answer, given Psaki’s obfuscation, is that of course that’s how leftists want to make their point, through mostly peaceful protests that have a propensity of somehow producing rioting, looting, burning and overall mayhem.

“Look, I think the president’s view is that there’s a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across this country about what they saw in that leaked document,” Psaki said.

“We obviously want people’s privacy to be respected, we want people to protest peacefully if they want to protest,” Psaki said. “That is certainly what the president’s view would be.”

And if that means stomping all over someone’s private home, well, the White House doesn’t have “an official U.S. government position on where people protest.”

Vice President Kamala Harris, however, offered her take earlier this week on how protesters should act.

“What is clear is that the opponents of Roe want to punish women and take away their rights to make decisions about their own bodies,” Harris said.

“This is the time to fight for women and for our country with everything you have.”
