Left-wing activist organizations’ plan for Monday in DC ‘sounds insurrection-y’

On Monday in Washington, DC, activist organizations led by a group called “Shut Down DC” say they are planning to shut down the Supreme Court by blocking all traffic to the building:

The group “Shut Down DC” plans to “blockade the streets around the Supreme Court” on Monday, according to its website, as part of a protest that aims to “shut down” the Supreme Court as it prepares to hand down a ruling that could overturn Roe v. Wade. https://t.co/CRuZThYPnd

If those groups consisted of right-of-center folks the Democrats might have a word for it…

They’re doing it with Biden’s blessing, too.

Biden didn’t say anything about the arrest of the person who intended to kill Brett Kavanaugh so it’s unlikely the White House will have a problem with the attempt to shut down the Supreme Court.

According to the rules this is an insurrection

For some reason we’re guessing that the Biden Justice Department wouldn’t consider this particular attempt to shut down the business of a branch of government to be anything close to an “insurrection.”

Weird, right?

Shutting down SCOTUS? Sounds like insurrection. I’ll be waiting for the June 13th congressional hearings. Looking forward to people held for a year without bail. Looking for Chuck Schumer being charged. Only difference is that hopefully no unarmed protesters will be shot dead.

Sounds insurrection-y.

I suppose as long as they don’t honk it’s OK, right?

Heaven forbid!

Sounds like a coup.

Glad we got back to our norms

The election of Biden brought with it a renewed respect for or cherished institutions… or maybe not.

June 25 (UPI) — Oslo, Norway, canceled its gay pride parade and raised its terror threat to the highest level Saturday after a shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub left two people dead and 21 injured, authorities said.

The shooting took place at 1:14 a.m. Saturday at the London Pub, a second bar and a fast-food restaurant. Police arrested a suspected gunman who they believe acted alone.

Of those injured, 10 were in serious condition.

Police haven’t identified the suspected shooter, but described him as being a 42-year-old Norwegian citizen of Iranian descent, according to Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten. CNN reported he was “known to police” and had minor previous convictions.

Authorities said they seized two weapons from him upon the arrest.

Roger Berg, the head of Norway’s domestic intelligence and security service, said the shooting was being investigated as an act of “extreme Islamist terror,” according to The Washington Post.

The suspect was being held on charges of murder, attempted murder and terrorism, police official Christian Hatlo said.

The attack happened hours before the city’s planned gay pride parade. Organizers said pride events scheduled for Saturday have been canceled upon police advice.

Despite the cancellation, thousands of people joined an impromptu parade outside the nightclubs where the shooting took place. Many waved gay pride flags, while others shouted slogans of support for gay rights.
