An official Planned Parenthood Twitter account made a threat on Thursday to Senators who vote in favor of confirming Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“[W]e’re coming for you,” the organization said in a Tweet directed at Senators who vote “yes” on Kavanaugh.
Considering Planned Parenthood’s record of murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent people every year, this threat may not be innocuous.
The political left has become increasingly violent since the election of President Donald J. Trump, and this type of rhetoric has been deemed appropriate by the mainstream press, which is the media arm of the Democratic Party.
Wednesday, Kelley Paul, wife of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), published an open letter to Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who told his supporters to “get up in the faces” of Trump supporters.
“In the last 18 months, our family has experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level,” she said.
“It’s nine o’clock at night, and as I watch out the window, a sheriff’s car slowly drives past my home,” the letter continued. “I am grateful that they have offered to do extra patrols, as someone just posted our home address, and Rand’s cell number, on the internet — all part of a broader effort to intimidate and threaten Republican members of Congress and their families. I now keep a loaded gun by my bed. Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life.”
She called on Booker to disavow political violence, which he has not done.
Planned Parenthood declined to comment for this story.
