After a confirmed death threat to Justice Kavanaugh, how many democrat leaders called on the protesters violating federal law outside of his home to stand down?
You are correct Democrat leaders did not call out protesters and in some cases went out of their way to encourage protests in front of his home and while eating at restaurants. It was wrong then and reminded the electorate how Dem leaders were either silent or encourage protests/riots in 2020.

But Republican leaders should call out this disgusting and potentially violent behavior. It is an easy and right thing to do. But for political animals that only do things that help them …it is also politically the best thing to do.

Exactly. What Dems did then is no reason/excuse for what Reps do now. Right and wrong should be independent of what someone did before you. This dude is all about the whatabouts though so good luck getting anywhere with him.

“The House passed the bill Tuesday, 396-27. Democrats said they would pursue the protections for families of court employees separately.”

Where do you come up with this stuff. Did some Ds abhorently encourage? Yes just as some on the right are now. But Biden spoke out against the summer riots/protests and violence. He signed legislation after the Kavenaugh incident.

Both sides need to tone down the rhetoric and people need to quit believing everything they read/watch/hear and then going on social media and furthering the lies. We are on the verge of getting a lot of people killed bc of lies.

Where do I come up with is stuff. First, history. Second, your second sentence certainly agrees with what I stated.
And as you know VP Harris famously not only spoke out for continued protests, but helped a fund to bail out people breaking the law.

I wholeheartedly agree with your second paragraph.

Totally agree, shouldn’t just be a one-way street

That’s funny. The first link is limited to the nut who made the threat, and I was referring to the protesters who were actively breaking federal law without consequence or being told to stand down. So there goes that argument you tried. Regarding your second link, it’s funny you hold that up as some kind of huge accomplishment, when in fact it had no teeth. Why? Because a law doesn’t accomplish Jack squat if there isn’t an AG or other prosecutor willing to file charges; and it’s clear Garland didn’t care to.

Any threats of violence or attempts to intimidate justices have no place in our society.”

No! No! No! There you go true to form changing what people post. You said “Democrat leaders did not call out protesters”. I said “some Ds”

The leader of the D party condemned the violence and the D led congress passed legislation to protect judges and the D POTUS signed the bill.

You would have been correct if you had said some Ds but you didn’t.

Just like I would be incorrect if I said you manipulate posts to make it seem like you discuss in good faith. The more correct thing to say is most of the time you manipulate posts to make it seem like you discuss in good faith. Sometimes you try to have good discussions.

Fine, good for Biden and his cool words in his aviator shades. Despite that, exactly what part of Garland choosing not to go after protesters violating federal law don’t you understand? Clearly Maverick’s cool words didn’t have any affect. Keep practicing.

You don’t even know what law they passed, do you?

No, you don’t….otherwise you wouldn’t be going down this path.

You continue to make fun of a guy yet your hero is the stable genius who tries to flush documents down a toilet despite having access to 28 fireplaces in the White House and 12 @ MAL.

Says the poster who can neither stop discussing a former President nor legitimately find any legitimate success stories attributable to the current President. Just walk away now.
We’ve been over this in another thread. Just bc you don’t like the guy doesn’t mean he and the Ds w some Rs haven’t done good things the last 2 weeks.
