Thanks to angry protests, wall goes up around Supreme Court — and conservatives take aim

A wall has been erected around the Supreme Court to protect the building from angry protesters after a draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade leaked — and it has conservatives mocking Democrat logic regarding border fences.

According to NBC News, the 8-foot “nonscalable” fencing went up around the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C., after unruly protests in the wake of a leaked opinion which would do away with a constitutional right for a mother to abort a baby.

Shortly after the draft was leaked on Monday, a crowd gathered around the building, located across from the Capitol.

Footage showed the mob pushing against barricades and chanting “fascist scum have got to go,” along with the names of the conservative justices reportedly involved in the decision.

The fencing is similar to that which was erected around the Capitol in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot.

The court is expected to rule on the case in the next few weeks.

However, the use of a wall to protect the Supreme Court had many Republicans noting that America has been informed frequently by the left that walls don’t work, at least at the southern border.

“They put up a wall around the U.S. Capitol to protect politicians,” GOP Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio noted in a tweet. “They put up a wall around the Supreme Court to protect justices. But they can’t build a wall at the southern border to protect you.”

Rep. Andy Biggs, an Arizona Republican, had similar thoughts.

“If we can build a wall around the Capitol and the Supreme Court, we can build a wall at the southern border,” he tweeted.

Rep. Lance Gooden of Texas and Breitbart’s Wendell Husbø had similar thoughts.

And Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado noted who was responsible for the wall at the Supreme Court.

“The fence around the Supreme Court right now has nothing to do with right-wing extremism and EVERYTHING to do with the Left being a violent bunch of lunatics when they’re told they can’t murder babies,” she tweeted.

It’s unclear when the decision will officially come down or what security will look like when it happens — although the wall around the court is likely to remain up for quite some time, given the charged atmosphere in the nation’s capital.
