As Twitchy reported earlier, Axios had a scoop on a memo from the Department of Homeland Security concerning the mounting threat of violence against Supreme Court justices over Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked draft opinion that could signal the impending death of Roe v. Wade.
It gets better. DHS said that threats from the pro-abortion crowd, who have been protesting in front of justices’ homes, are more a “generalized philosophic embrace of violent tactics” and do not constitute “domestic violent extremism or illegal activity.”
But wait, it gets better. The pro-life crowd is where DHS really sees a threat of violence because they’re the white supremacists: “Some racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists’ embrace of pro-life narratives may be linked to the perception of wanting to ‘save white children’ and ‘fight white genocide,'” the memo says. As a piece published by the Washington Post explained Tuesday, the leaked Roe decision “is about protecting Whiteness.”
Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the memo and asked which side, pro- or anti-abortion, was being characterized as violent. Jean-Pierre said that, to the White House, it seems that what they’d call intimidation or violence “is very one-sided.”

By the way, is she just going to read out of her binder and flip through the pages to look busy?
Hard to believe it could get worse than Psaki, but here you go….

I don’t think she’ll last long.

I suppose it’s better then saying she’ll circle back? Although she didn’t really say anything that came close to being an answer.

Not answering tells you the answer.

Gee, I wonder what "side" she's suggesting…time to put my hip boots on.

Wtf? It’s hard to follow her, but is she saying it’s the anti-abortionists that are threatening? Because, my Lord, just look at news clips. It’s clearly the pro side.

Who does she think it was trying to hammer down the door of the Supreme Court to disrupt the swearing-in of Justice Brett Kavanaugh? Those weren’t pro-lifers.
So the threats aren't coming from the pro-life side. If it was, she would have said it.

She’s so over her head.

2 days in and she is AWFUL. I expected bias and sass but she just flat out sucks at this.

It seems to be one-sided, so why not name which side is threatening violence and intimidation if Roe v. Wade is overturned?
