Woke Hack of the day goes to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
In response to rowdy pro-choicers protesting outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices and refusing to let Samuel Alito leave his home easily, Jen Psaki says to keep up the good work.
Psaki told the press on Tuesday that the Biden administration continues to encourage protesters to chant and march outside the homes of the justices in the way they have been.
Here’s Psaki to explain:
There is no law anymore https://t.co/lrN7uG10ek

Notice that Psaki isn’t telling pro-choice advocates to protest outside the Supreme Court. She’s specifically telling them that it’s okay to target the homes of judges as long as they are “peaceful.”
(To be clear: social media did not take Psaki’s words out of context. Here’s her full statement on why she hopes to see mobs continue to surround the homes of the justices.)
The law that Tim Pool is referring to is 18 U.S.C. Section 1507, which states that it’s a federal crime to protest near the residence of a judge or jury with the intent to influence their decisions in pending cases.
And while protesters could theoretically claim in court they had no intent to sway an opinion and were only venting their anger, it’s nonetheless reckless for Psaki to support such behavior.
If these protests turn out violent, as most woke outrage gatherings do, Psaki and the media should be complicit.
MSNBC hired a gem in Psaki, that’s for sure.
