A little over a week after a man was allegedly trying to murder Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the US House of Representatives passed legislation aimed at enhancing security for the Justices families. Surprisingly, 27 Democrats were against the bill, one of who was AOC, who decried the legislation because it didn't contain safeguards that would protect “everyday people.” As if that's what they were deciding on.
The following day, the politician uploaded an Instagram video boasting of her attempts to thwart the bill:
I awake this morning, and I begin to hear whispers about there being going to be a push to approve legislation to amend the Supreme Court supplemental protection bill on the same day that school gun safety legislation to protect children has been in limbo.
So, we could provide protection to us and here with ease, right? However, can we create protections for everyone? I don't think so.
The bill is now delivered to the desk of President Joe Biden for his final approval. It offers 24-hour protection to Supreme Court justices' families and was ratified 396-27 by the House following a unanimous vote from the Senate in May.
The 27 Democrats who didn’t support the bill were of the mind that it did not include protection for court employees such as clerks and their families. Why shouldn't the mailman be protected as well?
The vote follows the shocking assassination attempt on Brett Kavanaugh, and the media's reluctance to report on his arrest. alleged murderer. RedState has covered Nancy Pelosi's “unprincipled” response, how CNN journalists brushed it off, and even Bill Maher blasted the New York Times for its lack of coverage of the events.
Tuesday marked an almost bizarre time within “journalism”: The New York Times has been criticized for its coverage of incidents. It's probably not “journalisy,” but I can just declare “Bwaaa ha haaa!”
The vote is just five years after an incident of violence that was based on ideology, and which the media doesn't pay much focus to: the shooting of a Republican congressman's baseball tournament by one Bernie Sanders supporter. The attack caused Rep. Steve Scalise = life-threatening injuries, while three other people were wounded, including two officers of the police.
We're all aware that if it had been a right-winger who blew into the air during the Democrat ballgame, we'd have wall-to-wall coverage of the anniversary at CNN and endless opinions within the NY Times.
The bill is also amidst the controversy over Democrats who are openly advocating for violent action towards Supreme Court Justices who might be considering changing Roe v. Wade. “I would like to inform you, Gorsuch, that I would like to inform you that Kavanaugh you've let loose the whirlwind, and you'll be the one to pay. You will not know what is going to happen if you decide to go on with these horrible rulings,” said Senate Majority Chuck Schumer, on the 4th of March, 2020. The president Joe Biden, meanwhile, has been unable to sanction those who demonstrate outside Supreme Court Justices' houses–which is in violation of the law. The DOJ seems to be in a hurry with other things, but they've yet to take a step to enforce the law.
The complete list of 27 people who did not believe it was necessary to pass legislation further safeguarding our Supreme Court Justices can be located here. It should come as no surprise to learn that the most common suspects are part of the shambles of those who are:
Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., Rep. Barbara Lee D-Calif., Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and the highly regarded Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.
In the world that we live in, Democrats are openly calling for violent action against Supreme Court justices, then vote against legislation that would safeguard those Justices as well as their family members. It's hypocrisy with a capital H.
