Liberals Melt Down Over Bipartisan SCOTUS Security Protection Bill

  • The Senate moved to quickly enhance security measures for the families of Supreme Court justices Monday as protesters descended on their private homes and published their home addresses online.
  • Liberals complained about the enhanced security on Twitter, which they viewed as wrongly prioritizing the Court when lawmakers should have been focusing on abortion rights. 
  • “This is such an insult to the untold number of people who’ve face violence and harassment over the past several decades just trying to obtain abortions, these Senators are all just fucking sick in the head,” said Jason Linkins, deputy editor of The New Republic.

Liberals melted down on Twitter in response to a Monday bipartisan effort in the Senate to enhance security for the families of Supreme Court justices.

Senators quickly passed the Supreme Court Police Parity Act, which extends police protection to justices’ families, on Monday as pro-abortion protesters gathered in front of justices’ homes to protest a leaked draft opinion revealing that justices would likely overturn Roe v. Wade. Liberals condemned the move as a distraction from the issue of abortion rights.

“This is such an insult to the untold number of people who’ve face violence and harassment over the past several decades just trying to obtain abortions, these Senators are all just fucking sick in the head,” wrote Jason Linkins, deputy editor of The New Republic.

“So this bill is just zipping through the gov’t, making it more difficult to protest Supreme Court justices where they live. they can reach into our homes to control our bodily autonomy but we can’t show up at their gates to say hey what the fuck,” wrote Jes Skolnik, a writer and member of Trans Journalists Association.

Adam Serwer, a writer for The Atlantic, suggested Democrats who helped justices get improved security had an issue with the public backlash against Roe being overturned, a phenomenon that would presumably help their party.
