The $1 million Garland ad, titled “Twelve Years,” is premised on the fact that Garland and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were once colleagues on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
Pointing out that Kavanaugh is being “harassed, threatened, even an armed assassin was after him” in the wake of the decision to overturn infamous pro-abortion case Roe v. Wade, the ad says Garland “could stop it, but doesn’t.”
The ad calls on Garland to “uphold the rule of law, protect his former colleagues, and the Court. Instead, he’s cowering to the woke mob.”
“Twelve Years” will begin airing today, 101 days after the leak of the Dobbs opinion reversing Roe v. Wade — the opinion that saw leftists react violently and attempt to intimidate members of the Court to change the opinion. Domestic terror groups like “Jane’s Revenge” and “Ruth Sent Us” have been at the forefront of the intimidation, aiding or staging protests outside the Justices’ homes.
Garland has been silent on the protection of justices, forcing Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) to use their authority to protect Supreme Court justices.
Youngkin recently called out the Department of Justice for executing a raid on former President Trump’s Florida home, while also criticizing it for labeling parents as “terrorists” and “fail[ing] to enforce federal law to protect Justices in their homes.”
“Merrick Garland has consistently bowed to the radical left’s agenda, whether it’s calling concerned parents ‘domestic terrorists’ or suing states for protecting the unborn,” JCN President Carrie Severino said in a statement. “What the Attorney General is clearly *not* doing is enforcing a federal law designed to protect judges at their homes, as mobs of protestors continue to harass six of the Court’s justices at their homes, even after the attempted assassination of Brett Kavanaugh.”
The “Twelve Years” ad seeks to “expose how Democrats are endangering the lives of Supreme Court justices.”
