The FBI announced on Thursday they will be investigating a rash of attacks and vandalism targeting anti-abortion activist groups and pregnancy centers across the country.
“The FBI is investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country,” a spokesperson for the FBI’s national press office said.
“The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities.”
This comes after weeks of constant domestic terrorist attacks against pregnancy centers, pro-life organizations, religious groups, and Republican lawmakers.
More than 100 House Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday that calls on the Department of Justice to investigate the incidents as acts of domestic terrorism.
The GOP letter also listed 11 incidents from May and two in June. These incidents involved one in Colorado, two in Maryland, two in Texas, one in Wisconsin, one in Oregon, two in Virginia, two in Washington state, one in North Carolina, and one in the nation’s capital (where the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center was vandalized).
Since the May 2 leak of a draft of a Supreme Court opinion for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization signaling Roe v. Wade will be overturned, there have been pro-abortion terrorists have unleashed a wave of brutal violence.
Last week, 16 Republican senators, along with a number of national anti-abortion groups, sent a letter to Garland telling him “the criminal acts perpetrated against those who oppose legalized abortion are a clear effort to intimidate or coerce individuals who hold pro-life values.”
Nicholas Roske, 26, traveled thousands of miles and showed up at Kavanaugh’s house in Maryland after midnight with burglary tools, a knife, a gun, and a pair of special boots with outer soles allowing stealth movement inside a house, though he walked away when he spotted a pair of deputy U.S. marshals, who were part of the Supreme Court justice’s security force, outside Kavanaugh’s home, according to court records.
“This kind of behavior is, obviously, its behavior — we will not tolerate it,” Garland said last week.
But have you noticed the media has said very little about this failed assassination attempt? Can you guess why?
Roske told investigators he was angry about the possibility of the high court overturning Roe and also believed Kavanaugh would play a role in upholding Second Amendment rights and loosening gun laws in a separate high-profile case yet to be decided this term.
GOP Senate leadership also sent a letter to the DOJ on Wednesday demanding answers on why they were not enforcing 18 U.S. Code § 1507, which prohibits “pickets or parades” near judges’ homes.
The White House still encouraged protestors to surround the private homes of SCOTUS justices. While still working for Biden, former press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration “encourages” protestors to riot peacefully at their homes.
On Tuesday, the House overwhelming voted on a bill to beef up security for Supreme Court Justices.
Among the ‘no’ votes (all Democrats), were members of the ‘Squad’ — a far-left coalition of lawmakers who collectively spend nearly $1 million annually on private security.
You really can’t make this stuff up…
