(JustPatriots.com)- Last week, Axios reported that the Department of Homeland Security had issued a memo warning law enforcement of potential violence against Supreme Court justices and members of the clergy after Politico published the draft opinion from Justice Samuel Alito that could overturn Roe v. Wade.
The memo, issued from the agency’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis, was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon last week. It can be seen in full HERE.
In it, DHS outlines the potential public safety threats in response to the “abortion debate.”
However, the memo seems to suggest that the threats aren’t just coming from the pro-abortion radicals who have already threatened the conservative justices and attacked pro-life organizations and churches. Instead, Homeland Security is claiming the threats are coming from both the pro-abortion Left and from so-called “domestic violent extremists” on the right.
The DHS memo claims that these domestic violent extremists will adopt “narratives” to “encourage violence” against the government, “reproductive health care personnel and facilities and ideological opponents.”
It cites around 25 “violent threats on social media” including “burning down or storming” the Supreme Court, murdering Supreme Court justices and their clerks, congressional lawmakers, “and lawful demonstrators.”
The memo also claims members of the anarchist “Boogaloo Boys” are calling for violence against pro-abortion activists hoping “it will spark a civil war.”
Last week, the Department of Justice confirmed that US Marshals have been deployed to provide round-the-clock security at the homes of all nine Supreme Court justices.
Earlier this month, the Senate passed a bill through unanimous consent expanding security protection to Supreme Court Justices and their families.
However, the bill has been languishing in the Democrat-controlled House.
During her weekly press briefing last Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appeared to express opposition to the Senate bill, insisting that law enforcement officials should be the ones to determine whether the threats to the justices warrant a response.
When asked if she would bring the Senate bill to a vote, Pelosi dodged the question, saying it would depend on whether there are any threats against the justices and determining that should be up to law enforcement.
