Supreme Court intimidation has taken justices to a dark place

今日, during the dark hours before dawn, a man was arrested near the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The man was reportedly carrying weapons and burglary tools. He has been charged with the attempted murder of a Supreme Court justice. He told police he intended to kill Kavanaugh, motivated by the prospect of the justice’s expected votes in forthcoming abortion and Second Amendment cases. This is the latest development to follow the leak, in early May, of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion overturning ロー対ウェイド事件. ウェイドドブスv. ジャクソン女性の健康組織.

Within days after the leak, activists spearheaded by a dark-money group calling itself “ルースは私たちを送った” doxxed the six justices expected to be in the Dobbs majority, posting a map of their homes in a solicitation — complete with the offer of stipends — of protests that predictably introduced a new level of personal danger to the occupants of the highest court in the land. The justices were given extra security, and the Supreme Court building itself went into lockdown with 8-foot fencing erected around it.

The dark place the Court finds itself today is just the latest episode of a saga that dates back some 35 年. いつ Robert Bork was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1987, People for the American Way, the National Abortion Rights Action League, and numerous other dark-money groups on the left waged an unprecedented campaign to smear the nominee via media, joined by prominent Democratic politicians. Not coincidentally, Bork had been nominated to replace swing justice Lewis Powell, and Court watchers at the time believed his vote could make the difference between upholding and overturning Roe.

Four years later, the same groups almost defeated the nomination of Clarence Thomas in a campaign of vilification that was even more personal and ugly than the one launched against Bork. The persecution of Thomas has never stopped.
