‘Sounds insurrection-y’: Left-wing activists plan to ‘blockade streets around Supreme Court’ on Monday

Left-wing activists plan to “blockade the streets around the Supreme Court” come Monday, and critics say their plan sounds awfully similar to an insurrection.

The group Shut Down DC, which originally emerged in 2019 to protest on behalf of climate change, states explicitly on its website that on June 13th, it intends “to blockade the streets around the Supreme Court to rise up for the transformative change that our communities need.”

But it gets worse.

“In online meeting footage … the group announced that it planned to seal off all three vehicle entrances to the court so justices wouldn’t be able to get in and announce a decision that might overturn Roe v. Wade,” The Epoch Times has confirmed.

According to a slide presented during the meeting, the goal “is to create a decision dilemma, presenting the Court, Congress, and law enforcement (and the political leaders that oversee them) with three unacceptable (to them) options.”

The options are to “[a]llow the blockade to continue and stop Justices from entering the court,” “[c]ontinue to escalate the crisis in democracy by using police force to forcibly remove us,” or “[o]pen up to implementing the transformation changes that our movements and communities have been demanding.”

The group is apparently motivated by a desire to prevent the Supreme Court from overturning Roe v. Wade, a decision that’s expected to be announced any day now.

“Following decades of organizing by the far right, conservatives now hold a majority on the Supreme Court, and a group of five justices can roll back critical rights and protections that should be settled law. At the same time, the filibuster has left the Senate gridlocked and unable to pass legislation to protect our rights or enact the programs our communities need,” the group’s website reads.

“Right now our political system is in crisis. Times of crisis can either be opportunities to break through the inertia and win transformational change or they can be opportunities for the establishment to further entrench the status quo.”

America’s political system is certainly “in crisis,” but critics say that’s because it currently boasts a two-tiered justice system that allows leftists to do whatever the hell they want to do but simultaneously arrests right-wingers for mere thought crimes.

What’s clear, critics argue, is that if America were a country with a fair and equal justice system, Shut Down DC members would be arrested either right now for plotting an insurrection or on Monday for committing one.

In other words, they’d be treated exactly like the Jan. 6th “insurrectionists.”

Of course, none of these critics expect any of the activists to actually be arrested, and the reason why is because the Biden administration has made it clear that it vociferously supports “abortion rights protests.”

Even when left-wing activists began illegally demonstrating outside the homes of the Supreme Court’s conservative justices, the administration defended them.

“I know there’s an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date. And we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges’ homes and that’s the president’s position,” then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in May 10th.

And so despite their heated rhetoric seen above, critics know better than to expect arrests.

News of Shut Down DC’s planned “blockade” comes only hours after a group of right-wing men allegedly linked to white nationalism were arrested in the Idaho community of Coeur d’Alene on Saturday for wanting to riot at a gay pride event.

Not actually rioting, but wanting to riot …

  1. Democrats see nothing wrong with an insurrection, if it’s their people who are carrying it out. Then they are all for it, but heaven forbid if conservative people object to their votes being stolen. Democrat “insurrectionists” can even break the law, and all is okay. Just like when a Capitol Cop murders a female veteran, and doing the work the democrats want done, that’s forgiven too.

  2. This will clearly demonstrate for ALL to see that our justice system is broken, ruled by an unmitigated DOUBLE STANDARD. Watch and learn…

  3. I believe that’s an arrestable, detestable offense. Let’s get that June 13 investigation ready.

  4. Call in the NATIONAL GUARD. No FBI thugs need to come to this one. I hope someone records all this, including faces and identities. You know like Portland and Seattle.

  5. It’s a Federal law that it’s illegal to protest at the homes of Supreme Court judges, yet the left encourages it and the DOJ ignores it even after an assassination attempt. Our open border violates multiple Federal laws daily and allows into our country violent criminals, cartels, terrorists and the Chinese made fentanyl that kills a hundred thousand Americans every year. The Democrats encouraged the violent riots of 2020 that burned many of our major cities and that caused billions in property damage and killed dozens of people. So who are the real “insurrectionists”. There was NOT ONE armed protester on Jan. 6 and (despite the lies from the Democrats and the media) only one person died during the “riot” and that was a female veteran named Ashli Babbitt who was shot without warning by a Capital policeman. The fact that there have been dozens of American citizens locked up unconstitutionally for a year and a half with no bail or due process should enrage every American. The fact the the IRS, the FBI, the CIA, the DOJ and even the DOD have been weaponized against the Democrats political opposition should enrage every American. I say again, who are the real “insurrectionists”? I think the answer is obvious and their coup continues…..
