Ruth did NOT send them!
The Werkes has no direct evidence that disruptions are planned here in Madison WI but forewarned is fore-armed.
Planning to honor mom and worship the Creator of All Life this Sunday at church? Gird your loins. Some on the Hard Left are encouraging pro-abortion fanatics to storm Catholic churches on Mother’s Day and disrupt the Mass. They target Catholics, presumably, because our church is the leading pro-life religion and because a majority of the justices likely to overturn Roe v. Wade are adherents.
The organizers name themselves as “Ruth Sent Us” after the late liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, proving again that they were AWOL when God handed out the irony gene. Bader Ginsburg criticized the Roe decision as “too swiftly shaped” and “unstable.” The Madison Diocese is posting an on-line advisory stating:
Although some locations of the protests seem to be confirmed by parishes and dioceses, still unclear how many protests across the country are being planned. The Diocese of Charleston, the Archdiocese of New York, and some churches in Washington, D.C., are taking extra precautions. According to a statement shared by the Diocese of Charleston, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is now involved and warning parishes.
“Ruth Sent Us” on Friday 05-06-22 doxxed the home address of the six conservative justices of the US Supreme Court in service of its harassment campaign — as if the Constitution should be decided by bullhorns. The President’s spokesperson, Jen Psaki, notably refused to condemn the doxxing.
Reaping Schumer’s whirlwind
Where would someone get the idea to harass the Court? the Wall Street Journal asks. Perhaps from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who stood on the Supreme Court steps in March 2020 as the Justices considered a previous abortion case.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions,” he literally screamed.
Led by President Biden, our liberal acquaintances (… for they ARE our acquaintances) pose the “what’s next?” question. Will school desegregation, gay marriage, inter-racial marriage — also be reversed? In addition to Justice Alito’s express assurance otherwise, the inimitable Peggy Noonan provides this balm of Gilead:
As a wound, the Roe v. Wade decision never healed, never could. … The other high court decisions that liberalized the social order … were followed by public acceptance, even when the rulings were very unpopular. Most came to have overwhelming support. But not Roe.
Why? Because all the other decisions were about how to live, and Roe was about death. I believe the fact of abortion, … thinking … “It’s just some cells” … has released a kind of poison into the air, that we breathed it in for 50 years and it damaged everything. Including of course our politics.
Do dip into Justice Alito’s draft decision in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Org. Need not read it all but it’s actually very compelling.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: In a way, we should thank the raised-fist vandals for proving once again why the rest of us — like the Ukrainians — must protect democracy.
