Some neighbors are holding peaceful vigils at the house of Brett Kavanaugh, the longtime partisan hatchet man who was installed on the Supreme Court in large measure because he would terminate the reproductive rights of American citizens. Needless to say, this is leading to plenty of complaints about the Decline of Civil Discourse in America. There is some obvious rain on your wedding day off the top:

But, you might say, isn’t protest better held at the public institution Kavanaugh is part of rather than his private residence? Well funny thing about that:

Large buffer zones to ensure that justices never have to see protestors? I wonder what the reactionary faction of the Supreme Court would say about, say, trying to protect women from people shouting obscenities about them while they try to get into a medical clinic?

The obvious purpose of the challenged portion of the Massachusetts Reproductive Health Care Facilities Act is to “protect” prospective clients of abortion clinics from having to hear abortion-opposing speech on public streets and sidewalks. The provision is thus unconstitutional root and branch and cannot be saved…

Always instructive who is entitled to a safe space everywhere and who is not.
