Neighbors of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh have had all that they can take of disrespectful pro-abortion activists depriving them of their right to peaceful enjoyment with ongoing protests outside of their homes and some shared their thoughts with The Washington Post.
The WaPo reached out to a handful of Kavanaugh’s neighbors in Chevy Chase, Maryland seeking comment on the protesters who have become a regular presence, continuing their campaign of harassment nearly a month after the historic overturning of landmark abortion rights ruling Roe v. Wade.
Among the eight people who agreed to speak with the outlet are three who “spoke on the record, voicing frustrations with protesters — not their presence so much as their volume and their often jarring language. Four, who spoke on the condition of anonymity citing concerns over their privacy, shared those frustrations,” and one who sought to remain anonymous but who said that she had “problems with protesters,” most have had enough.
Among those who responded was 46-year-old artist Emily Strulson who lives a block away from Kavanaugh and “first marched for abortion rights as a middle-schooler with her mom on the National Mall” who, after the SCOTUS aborted Roe v. Wade wrote in chalk on her driveway that “Reproductive Rights are Human Rights” and had over 200 “Chevy Chasers for Choice” yard signs “printed and distributed that echo the widely held sentiments of her left-leaning jurisdiction just north of Washington,” according to the paper.

But being subjected to two months of “loud and vulgar” protests that have chased the family out of their home on Wednesday evenings for a “long dinner” at a restaurant, Strulson is tired of the leftist invaders.
“I understand where their passion comes from,” she said, “but I’ve had enough.”
The paper reported that while Strulson stayed inside, the protests were “getting generally louder as the weeks passed” and eventually, reached the point that her husband emailed a member of the Montgomery County Council to warn him of “of significant disruptions caused by the demonstrators.”
“He said protesters had become ‘more belligerent, using lots of foul language in their chants’ and “have left signs with offensive language’ on his street. He continued, “I am expressly concerned for the safety of children on our street, including my own. Kids have stopped playing outside due to fear and the consistent presence of protesters,'” according to the report.
“The vast majority of people here are pro-choice,” said Lyric Winik, another one of the justice’s neighbors. “And the very vast majority of people here think that these protesters have gotten out of control.”
She said that attempts to get the leftists to dial it down have been rejected.
“They just call us fascists,” she said. “Nothing about this is healthy. We’ve got kids on this street scared to leave their homes.”
Last month, Fox News Digital spoke to a source who is a neighbor of Kavanaugh’s over the increasingly disruptive and aggressive protesters, “They are people who come from out of the area. They have a staging point in a parking lot fairly nearby.”
Telling the network that the protests come during evenings, the neighbor said, “That’s when people are putting their kids to bed, there’s little kids who live on the street. It’s a horrific experience.”
“It’s not great if you have kids of any age, but it’s unbelievably stressful and the kids are very upset, the kids have to be sent inside and it’s so loud you can’t put your kids to sleep,” according to the neighbor. “They picked the exact time and they don’t care.”
The mob has shown little concern for neighborhood residents, according to the Washington Post, “Demonstrators take strong exception to the reactions, saying that to whatever extent they disrupt tranquility, it is part of a much more important message — bringing attention to how a number of justices altered the lives of millions — and a message could be even stronger with the residents’ participation. As they chanted recently: ‘Out of your houses and into the streets!'”
“We already have our rights being taken away,” said 28-year-old activist Sadie Kuhns. “We’re having our voices, literally the volume of our voices, policed, on top of everything else that we’ve already been stripped of.”
Kuhns was dismissive of the neighbors’ rights, saying, “We’re there for about 30 minutes between 7 and 8 p.m. and then we leave.”
“It’s a minor inconvenience once a week for a matter of minutes, whereas people are inconvenienced now and threatened now, their lives are threatened for the foreseeable future,” she said.
Of all of the conservative justices other than Clarence Thomas who has been subjected to vile racist attacks, none have had the wrath of the mob turned on them more than Kavanaugh, who during his Senate confirmation hearings was the target of a vicious coordinated smear campaign by Democrats, activists and their winged monkeys in the media that sought to falsely portray him as a rapist.
The respected conservative jurist and his family came very close to being murdered by a fanatical left-winger who, egged on by the incendiary rhetoric of Dems and the media, traveled from his home in California to Chevy Chase on a mission to assassinate him which only failed because the mentally disturbed man got squeamish at the last minute.
The protests are ongoing and not one Democrat leader has expressed a smidgen of concern for the neighbors and their children.
