HAWLEY UNLOADS: People Terrorizing Justices and Their Families are 'Scumbags'

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.09.22

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) unloaded on protestors and far-left activists who are targeting members of the Supreme Court over the leaked Roe v. Wade opinion that may overturn the long-standing ruling. Hawley says they are “scumbags.”

“People who would try to terrorize the justices and their families at their homes are scumbags,” Hawley told Fox News Digital.

“The left tried that tactic on me and my family, terrorizing my wife and baby. It failed. The real story here is that Joe Biden is encouraging it. That makes him no better than the pathetic thugs who engage in this behavior.”

Many on the right feel the Biden Administration hasn’t gone far enough to condemn and deter violent action against pro-life groups and conservative Justices —Fox News’ Peter Doocy pushed press secretary Jen Psaki on the issue last week. Doocy asked Psaki if the protests outside the Justices’ houses was too extreme.

“Peaceful protest, no. Peaceful protest is not extreme. We certainly encourage people to keep it peaceful and not resort to any level of violence.”

The office of a pro-life group in Wisconsin was hit with a Molotov cocktail and vandalized over the weekend; there are also reports of churches being attacked and vandalized in Colorado.

Unrest is rapidly escalating nationwide.
