Last Monday’s Supreme Court released its draft majority opinion regarding Roe V. Wade. This confirmed that the left will not be held to the same standards as the right. There have been many instances of Twitter blue checks calling for an end to war. This is similar to the hyperventilated reactions to the September 2020 death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Extremists against abortion such as the “Ruth Sent Us” and the “ShutDown DC”, have also targeted conservative Justices in their homes. They posted their addresses online using Google maps to intimidate them about the Mississippi case. After 16 years of falsely accusing Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, of inciting insurrection on Jan 6, 2021 Democrats are now fomenting violent protests. Now, we turn to Monday’s “The View” program, where the hot topic of the day was the protests that were organized in front of Justice’s homes.
At one point during the segment, co-host Sunny Hostin donned her Serious Girl hat to talk about reports that Justice Alito (who wrote the draft majority opinion) and his family had to be moved to an undisclosed location.
Hostin offered Alito three seconds’ sympathy before moving to intimidation and protests.
“… Maybe these protests or outcries give Chief Justice Roberts leverage and allow him to find moderation in his approach to the case. She didn’t seem to be aware that Justices are not supposed to rule on public sentiment but on Constitutional law.
Hostin’s comments afterward were like her letting an unintentional truth slip about herself:
It’s amazing to me that Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, and other Supreme Court justices, came out at the 11th Circuit Judicial Conference declaring that they won’t be bullied and that people should accept the results that aren’t in their favor.
Others justices will argue that peaceful protest outside our homes is not permitted. Both men and women are entitled to privacy.
Next, I will be discussing the rant about Sunny Hostin. Watch the video below to see the reactions of the crowd and the applause she received from her co-hosts. She almost felt like she was preaching the gospel.
Sunny Hostin touts protests at the justices’ homes because it makes “really clear” to them what the left wants and hopes it gives “leverage” to Roberts.

Let’s start by saying that the Justices do not believe it is wrong for people to protest their views. This was Hostin’s fabrication, and it was not challenged by any panel.
Hostin, a former federal prosecutor, brags about her membership in the Supreme Court Bar. Hostin says she views cases as having to go on Constitutional law and not on public sentiment.
Hostin is again The View’s Supreme Court lawyer expert. Hostin doesn’t know that the U.S. Code states that it is illegal to protest or create disturbances near judges’ homes or offices with the intent of obstructing them or hindering them.
DOOCY: “So he doesn’t care if they’re protesting outside the Supreme Court or outside [a justice’s] private residence?”
PSAKI: “I don’t have an official U.S. government position on where people protest.”
How about Title 18, Section 1507 of the United States Code? https://t.co/ys1NorIFsj pic.twitter.com/4ZRioVwHtj

Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor, correctly pointed out that legal analyses in the media are in bad shape. The View features legal analyses by “legal professionals”, like Hostin, that are based on fiction and intended to win cool points among panelists. They get the audience to behave like seals.
It’s easy to make this country a better place. These women add nothing but pain to the discourse.
