Here’s your mainstream media guide to help you navigate what undoubtedly will be increasingly violent demonstrations to come from the radical left.
Rage-filled — and illegal — pro-abortion rallies at the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices are “mostly peaceful.”
Doxing justices and getting in their faces before the court hands down a momentous court decision is free speech.
Georgetown University Law Professor Josh Chafetz will tell you that such “aggressive” demonstrations are justified “if the mob is right.”
As the College Fix reported, Chafetz defended the leftist demonstrators, tweeting, “The ‘protest at the Supreme Court, not at the justices’ houses’ line would be more persuasive if the Court hadn’t this week erected fencing to prevent protesters from coming anywhere near it.”
“And before the ‘oh so you support J6 lmao!’ trolls show up: the difference is *substantive*. When the mob is right, some (but not all!) more aggressive tactics are justified.”
The professor’s comments have been roundly criticized by many observers, including by Ilya Shapiro, the constitutional law scholar put on administrative leave by Georgetown University in February following a tweet that liberals widely decried as racist for defending race-blind nominations to the Supreme Court.
“If only I had justified mobbing justices’ homes instead of criticizing their selection by race and gender,” stated Shapiro’s tongue-in-cheek response.
But you have to be on the “right side” of the issue — which, at painfully woke institutions of higher education like Georgetown, means the left side of the issue.
