Over the past week we’ve seen the true nature of leftism on full display in reaction to the leaking of a draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. Leftists have abandoned any concept of civility in their attempt to bully Supreme Court Justice into changing their votes. And this could only be scratching the surface of what’s to come.
To give just one example of how uncivil the left is, Justice Kavanaugh’s own neighbor organized protests against him. In her words: “We’re about to get doomsday, so I’m not going to be civil to that man at all.” What a sweetheart!
Or even worse, the left is resorting to outright violence in some cases when it doesn’t get its way. One pro-life organization in Wisconsin found itself the victim of a firebombing when its building was targeted with Molotov cocktails. Thankfully they failed to fully ignite, so damage was limited, but their building was graffitied with the slogan, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”
The group that claimed resonsibility, Jane’s Revenge, announced that it wanted all pro-life organizations to cease activities within 30 days or it would launch more attacks. While authorities are still trying to figure out who the group is, we can’t rule out the possibility of more attacks like this.
The reality is that leftists become completely unhinged when they don’t get their way. And abortion is central to their belief system, so the fact that a court actually ruled that states can outlaw abortion has blown their minds.
In a society that has grown increasingly polarized, major decisions on hot button issues like this will very likely lead the left to resort to violence. It’s just to be expected.
We can’t let it deter our resolve to do what’s right, and we can’t let it influence our decisions. But we do have to combat it at every turn and root out these violent extremists so that they can’t harm any more innocent people.
