The Right Kind of Victims
To the radical left, the pro-abortion activists committing these crimes are the real victims. The actual victims on the receiving end of the left's rage are, in fact, a threat to democracy.
The establishment media portrays the radical left as caring for “victims” in many contexts, but the reality is that they are laser-focused not on defending but on victimizing the right kind of people. For them, pro-life, pro-family, conservative Americans are the right kind of victims. Violence against them is understandable and even desirable.
But worse than merely the media portrayal is the fact that the federal government, under the Biden-Harris Administration, is entirely controlled by the radical left. They, too, ascribe to this warped philosophy. That is why the spectacle of January 6 is worthy of a multi-million-dollar investigation and media focus. In contrast, the attempted assassination of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice must be buried. One goes after the right kind of people. According to the left, both the January 6 investigation and the attempted assassination against Justice Brett Kavanaugh are going against those who deserve to be punished.
Attacks on abortion clinics in the past were intolerable and taken seriously. The FBI and DOJ were quickly mobilized. The full resources of the federal government were invested in protecting those injured. They were the wrong kind of victims.
Today, the pro-abortion forces attacking pro-life clinics must be empathized with and understood. They are going after the right kind of victims: pro-life women.
More than twenty pro-life organizations, churches, and pregnancy resource centers, merely providing help to women in crisis pregnancies, have been attacked—no such enthusiasm to go after the perpetrators now. Members of Congress, like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida), have been forced to inquire why DOJ is not taking action against these ideological attacks.
The Wisconsin Family Action was targeted for arson. “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either,” said the message graffitied unto the building. In a statement taking credit, a group called “Jane’s Revenge” said the attack was “only a warning” and promised “increasingly extreme tactics.”
The group sent another message after they attacked a Des Moines, Iowa, pregnancy center, attacking their religious convictions and saying, “god loves abortion.”
Attacks in Olympia, Washington, Ashville, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., and Frederick, Maryland are just a few of the others we have seen in recent weeks.
The left is unconcerned. Speaker Pelosi was asked about the attacks, and instead of condemning them unequivocally, which would have been the decent thing to do and would not have undermined her pro-choice prowess in any way, she went on a rant about her pro-abortion, Catholic pedigree. They tacitly approve of these attacks. They are understandable and even commendable to them.
President Joe Biden’s silence has been deafening.
Concerned Women for America (CWA), the organization I represent, experienced the same apathy from the Alexandria, Virginia Police Department as we reported a recent attack on our building. As of this writing, more than a month after, authorities have not even bothered to come to collect the video footage from our security cameras. Can you imagine a conservative man going to a leftist women’s organization, vandalizing their building, and exposing himself publicly being ignored by authorities and the media? Well, the answer to the question changes when the attacker is a leftist and the victims are conservative women.
DOJ is interested in those types of women only as subjects and potential terrorists as moms voice their concerns at school board meetings.
These are the very people who are supposed to oversee our protection. Instead, Kristen Clarke, the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights at DOJ, who is in charge of investigating these attacks against pro-life clinics, has called them “fake clinics.” The Washington Free Beacon recently reported how “The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a civil rights group Clarke led at the time, alleged that crisis pregnancy centers’ target some of the most vulnerable women in communities today.’”
That is what the leadership at the nation’s highest law enforcement offices believe. To the left (controlling DOJ, the FBI, the House of Representatives, the Senate, the White House, etc.), the pro-abortion activists committing these crimes are the real victims. The actual victims on the receiving end of their rage are, in fact, a threat to democracy.
We can expect no justice under these conditions. Not while the radical left is in charge, which tells you everything you need to know going into election season.
