Omar asks, ‘what law?’ then claims Justices ruled it was OK to break the law protecting judges

Despite the grave implications for the Supreme Court as an institution, Democrats clearly believe that it is not only acceptable for mobs to intimidate justices and their families in their homes, but they actually seem to welcome it.

Last week’s publication of a leaked draft document that has been interpreted as meaning the possible end of Roe v. Wade infuriated activists who raged at conservative justices, leading to them being doxed with maps to their houses being posted on social media. This resulted in sending swarms of leftists into their neighborhoods to menace them over the weekend, leading to Justice Samuel Alito, who wrote the opinion, and his family being moved to an undisclosed location out of concerns for their safety.

Despite outrage from conservatives over the lawless tactics, President Biden and the White House have refused to strongly condemn the mobs and outgoing press secretary Jen Psaki actually encouraged the thuggish behavior of her party’s shock troops who are terrorizing judges and their families although it is a federal crime.

As for other Democrats, Fox News and Fox Business correspondent Hillary Vaughn caught up with three high profile progressive lawmakers including two members of the “Squad” as well as Senator Elizabeth Warren whose angry speech in front of the Supreme Court last week poured gasoline on the fire.

In video footage from Vaughn’s chat with the Democrats which aired exclusively on Tuesday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib said that she’s down with the mobs.

“I get interrupted and protested all the time,” the Michigan congresswoman said. “I welcome it in many ways as long as it is not violent rhetoric talking about you know, physical harm and all those things, I think it’s just really important to understand that that happens, we are in public service.”

Senator Warren told Vaughn, “This Supreme Court said back then protesters should be able to get right in people’s faces, now they are erecting barriers to try to keep protesters as far away from themselves as possible, I think that’s fundamentally wrong.”

Also weighing in was Somali-born Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar who appeared to be completely ignorant of the federal law prohibiting the intimidation of judges.

“What is the federal law, I’m sorry?” Omar said when confronted by Vaughn about the mobs, leading to the reporter educating her on U.S. Code 1507.

“Do you think that they should be prosecuted for breaking federal law?” Vaughn asked.

“The Supreme Court itself has heard this argument, and they have themselves said that it is protected by the First Amendment,” Omar responded.

According to U.S. Code 1507: “Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”

The mobs will likely only become more emboldened as their Democrat cheerleaders shower them with love and it could be a long and ugly summer for the justices, conservatives in general and the United States as a whole which has been commandeered by a party of extremists with no respect for the nation’s longstanding institutions.
