As the nation has witnessed the left’s growing unrest surrounding the potential overturning of Roe V. Wade, the White House, after remaining silent, has officially condemned violence and harassment of pro-life organizations and Supreme Court Justices.
In a statement released on Monday, the White House said, “President Biden strongly condemns this attack and political violence of any stripe. The President has made clear throughout his time in public life that Americans have the fundamental right to express themselves under the Constitution, whatever their point of view. But that expression must be peaceful and free of violence, vandalism, or attempts to intimidate.”
In a tweet, Jen Psaki said, “@PTOUS strongly believes in the Constitutional right to protest. But that should never include violence, threats, or vandalism.”
.@POTUS strongly believes in the Constitutional right to protest. But that should never include violence, threats, or vandalism. Judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety.
