Surprised? White House Has No Official Position On “Peaceful Protests”
Protests against the potential SCOTUS strike down of Roe V. Wade have already taken to the streets and even outside the homes of the “six extremists” Justices’.
According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki: “[There is no] official U.S. government position” for these “peaceful protests.”
This response came after Fox News reporter Peter Doocy pressed Psaki on the Biden administration’s definition of the word “extreme.” Which was notably used on Wednesday by the president to slander Trump supporters.
“You guys spent some time yesterday talking about what you think are … extreme wings of the Republican Party,” Doocy said. “Do you think the progressive activists that are now planning protests outside of justices’ houses are extreme?”
“Peaceful protest? No. Peaceful protest is not extreme,” Psaki quickly redefined.
Doocy: "Some of these justices have young kids. Their neighbors are not all public figures, so would [Biden] think about waving activists that want to go into…neighborhoods in VA and MD?"

She then went on to gaslight Doocy and Americans even further by saying that the country has had a long documented history of allowing peaceful protests.
Doocy and Psaki went back and forth on these definitions of words and their meanings for a few minutes, eventually resulting with Psaki justifying the actions of the protestors by explaining that an overturn of Roe V. Wade is ultimately an “attack on women.”
“I want it — we want it of course to be peaceful …” Psaki lectured.
“I think we shouldn’t lose the point here, the reason people are protesting is because women across the country are worried about their fundamental rights that have been law for 50 years,” she continued.
“Their rights to make choices about their own bodies and their own health care are at risk. That’s why people are protesting — they’re unhappy, they’re scared.” the Press Secretary concluded.
Of course, many Americans are already seeing the writing on the wall.
While the Biden administration smears and demonizes one party, it turns a blind eye to the other. Allowing left-wing groups to run ramped, break laws, and retort to clear intimidation tactics because their ends justify the means.
Why else is no one in authority denouncing the Justices’ house calls from Antifa? Not to mention the unprecedented SCOTUS draft leak altogether.
Americans know what’s coming next when they hear the words “peaceful protest” uttered by media pundits and talking heads. Because it gives them flashbacks to how institutions and power figures covered up and made light of the deadly George Floyd riots that burned down half the country just two years ago.
We can’t let them do this again – especially this close to midterms.
