Homeland security warns ‘domestic violent extremists’ may use Roe ruling to attack

Conservatives are expressing shock that, after weeks of ignoring attacks on churches and pregnancy centers, the Biden Department of Homeland Security is finally taking notice of pro-abortion terrorism.

In a memo reportedly issued to law enforcement and other relevant partners/groups on Friday, DHS warned of potential violence in the upcoming weeks following the Supreme Court’s decision that morning to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Some domestic violent extremists (DVEs) will likely exploit the recent US Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe V. Wade to intensify violence against a wide range of targets. We expect violence could occur for weeks following the release, particularly as DVEs may be mobilized to respond to changes in state laws and ballot measures on abortion stemming from the decision,” the memo reads.

“We base this assessment on an observed increase in violent incidents across the United States following the unauthorized disclosure in May of a draft majority opinion on the case,” it continues, referencing the aforementioned attacks.

The attacks have included the vandalization and firebombing of both churches and pregnancy centers.

The memo prompted surprise from conservatives who, based on this administration’s past behavior, expected DHS to just ignore the growing threats.

Look:

To be clear, the memo doesn’t acknowledge left-wing violence. It refers only to domestic violent extremists, an umbrella term that encompasses all domestic terrorists.

The memo continues by warning that federal and state government officials likely face the highest risk of being hit with violence in the upcoming days.

“Federal and state government officials — including judges — and facilities probably are most at risk for violence in response to the decision,” it reads.

Surprisingly, the memo then mentions Jane’s Revenge, the radical extremist group that recently declared “open season” on pro-life activists and the organizations they run.

In response to the threat, many on the right demanded that the Department of Justice do something, but Attorney General Merrick Garland responded with silence.

“In late May, a network of loosely affiliated suspected violent extremists, known as ‘Jane’s Revenge’—which has been linked to arson attacks against the buildings of ideological opponents—shared a post online encouraging a ‘night of rage’ following the Supreme Court announcement, stating, ‘we need the state to feel our full wrath’ and ‘we need them to be afraid of us,'” the memo reads.

Surprisingly yet again, the memo then mentions the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Despite the dire nature of what happened, it’s received barely any attention from the establishment press.

“An individual is now awaiting trial for a plot in June to kill a US Supreme Court Justice in response to the draft opinion. A separate incident in Michigan involved vandalism claimed by ‘Jane’s Revenge’ on a building that houses a US Representative’s campaign office and a pro-life advocacy group,” the memo reads.

The memo continues by indirectly referencing Antifa, the left-wing extremists who often show up at so-called “peaceful protests” to commit violence.

“First amendment-protected events following the released decision also probably will be attractive targets for a range of DVEs to commit violence against ideological opponents. On 22 June, an unidentified social media user posted content encouraging violence in response to the ‘night of rage’ and told followers to ‘prepare to defend’ themselves and ‘don’t lock and load either. Load then lock,’ according to US Capitol Police,” the memo reads.

In fact, such violence has already begun to occur. During pro-abortion protests that erupted Friday afternoon, a number of innocent people were attacked, ranging from Christian preachers to pro-life activists and even journalists:

According to DHS’ memo, “reproductive and family advocacy healthcare facilities likely will continue to remain primary targets for criminal incidents, and violence could escalate against these facilities or personnel.”

The memo then lists some of the recent attacks that have occurred:

  • “Since May, at least three arson attacks targeting pregnancy resource centers in Oregon and New York and a family advocacy group’s headquarters in Wisconsin have been claimed by ‘Jane’s Revenge’.”
  • “In May and June, suspected DVEs opposed to abortion rights conducted arson attacks targeting a reproductive healthcare facility in Wyoming and a vacant building that was formerly a reproductive healthcare facility in Washington.”
  • “Also, in June, a suspected racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist posted online calling for attacks against abortion-related targets in reaction to ‘Jane’s Revenge’ activity.”

 

The memo concludes by issuing a warning for churches as well.

“We are aware of at least 11 incidents of vandalism threatening violence targeting religious facilities perceived as being opposed to abortion, and one threat to ‘bomb’ and ‘burn’ a church in New York. These incidents of vandalism against faith-based organizations could indicate future targets of DVE attacks,” the memo reads.

What remains to be seen is whether, in addition to warning Americans about the possibility of potential terrorism, the Biden administration will do anything substantive about it, like, you know, chasing after, apprehending and throwing the perpetrators of this left-wing violence in prison …
