Democrats are proving once again that they are the party of violence after projecting for the entirety of Donald Trump’s presidency that conservatives pose the bigger threat to the social fabric of our nation.
Following a mob harassing Justice Brett Kavanaugh outside a swanky Washington, D.C. steakhouse last week — not long after the man and his family were the targets of an alleged would-be assassin — Democrats and their left-wing allies are gleefully cheering on more such harassment of conservative high court jurists following their overturning last month of the wrongly decided Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide in 1973.
Kavanaugh, for the record, was forced to leave out of a back exit to the restaurant, and the eatery was none too pleased by the incident.
A steakhouse rep sent POLITICO, which first reported the incident, a statement: “Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant. Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency.”
But again, Democrats have no issue with this whatsoever (likely because — at least up to this point — none of them are subjected to similar harassment).
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) shared a tweet from Huffington Post senior editor Andy Campbell slamming Politico for “clutching pearls” for writing up a short account of the harassment of Kavanaugh near the end of its Playbook feature last week.
AOC wrote on Twitter, “Poor guy. He left before his soufflé because he decided half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy within the wrong state lines. It’s all very unfair to him. The least they could do is let him eat cake.”
“I will never understand the pearl clutching over these protests,” Ocasio-Cortez she wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Republicans send people to protest me all the time, sometimes drunk and belligerent. Nobody cares about it unless it’s a Republican in a restaurant. Can someone please explain the obsession because I don’t get it.”
First things first.
National Review fact-checked the self-avowed Democratic socialist and noted that she was spreading misinformation in her post “regarding ectopic pregnancies – which occur when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus where it can not survive and can be fatal for the mother,” The Blaze reported.
“While Ocasio-Cortez seemed to smile upon the demonstration, her reason for supporting such action is fictitious,” the outlet stated. “The treatment of ectopic pregnancies — which occur when an embryo implants itself outside of the uterus, oftentimes on the fallopian tube — remains legal in all 50 states. Embryos that implant outside of the uterus are not viable, and even the most strident of pro-life groups support the immediate treatment of them as a medically necessary act, not an abortion.”
Washington Examiner writer Jerry Dunleavy went on to point out: “Not only is medical treatment for an ectopic pregnancy not illegal anywhere in America, but implying to your 13 million followers that it is illegal is the sort of thing that could actually cause someone to risk death for no reason rather than seek out the treatment they may need.”
Finally, a number of commentators pointed out to AOC that she previously complained about someone who merely took a photo of her while dining.
In February 2019, she spouted, “Tonight a dude was creepily (and obviously) taking a picture of me while pretending he wasn’t and I had to break his imaginary fourth wall and say ‘Hi! I’m a person! This is weird!'”

For the record, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s spouse, Chasten Buttigieg, also appeared to cheer on the harassment of Kavanaugh; many online commentators took him to task over the fact that the Kavanaughs were recent victims of an assassination plot.
If Democrats did not have double standards, they wouldn’t have any at all.
