Democrats continue to grow more unhinged by the day.
Suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome is leading to outrageous behavior – even from longtime politicians.
And Chuck Schumer just crossed a major red line with his threats toward these two Supreme Court Justices.
The Supreme Court is hearing arguments about a pro-life law in Louisiana that regulates abortion facility health standards.
Since abortion facilities aren’t really medical clinics – instead existing primarily to snuff out the lives of pre-born children – the law in question threatens to close them down.
And at a pro-abortion rally outside of the Supreme Court, Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer directed a menacing threat toward Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
“Over the last three years, women’s reproductive rights have come under attack in a way we haven’t seen in modern history. From Louisiana, to Missouri, to Texas, Republican legislatures are waging a war on women, all women, and they’re taking away fundamental rights.
“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,” Schumer raged.
Schumer’s dangerous comments led Chief Justice John Roberts to issue a rare public statement criticizing the Senate Minority Leader for threatening the physical safety of Supreme Court Justices with mob violence.
“Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous,” Roberts’ statement read.
“All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.”
After immense pressure from his colleagues in the U.S. Senate, Schumer responded to criticism of his comments on the Senate floor saying, “It didn’t come out the way I intended to,” before going on to accuse Republicans of manufacturing outrage.
While the media called it an apology, many felt it didn’t go near far enough.
A number of Senators are threatening to censure Schumer for his comments – a rare rebuke of public officials, having taken place fewer than ten times in American history.
