Pro-abortion comedian Samantha Bee told her audience to “raise hell” against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito “for the rest of his life” after he led the high court in overturning Roe v. Wade last month.
Bee made the comment Sunday on her show amid an increase in violence targeting pro-life advocates and threats against the Supreme Court justices. Within the past month, two men were arrested in separate incidents for allegedly threatening to kill the justices, according to Hot Air.
Abortion activists like Bee have continued to spout inflammatory comments anyway.
“I can’t describe how painful it is to be here now, in a place where the Supreme Court has the power to erase 50 years of constitutional law. Make no mistake, this is not where it ends,” Bee said, according to Townhall.
She claimed conservatives want to take away “all” American rights, and leftists need to fight back.
“It’s not just about voting in November,” Bee continued. “It’s about doing everything in our power to protect and help vulnerable people access abortion across state lines. And we have to raise hell! In our cities, in Washington, in every restaurant Justice Alito eats at for the rest of his life. Because if Republicans have made our lives hell, it’s time to return the favor.”

Alito and the other justices have been on high security watch since May when an unknown person leaked a draft ruling of their abortion decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health.
On Sunday, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told “Face the Nation” that they have seen a “heightened threat environment” toward the justices.
“We are very mindful that the Supreme Court’s decision in reversing and overturning Roe v. Wade has really heightened the threat environment, and we have deployed resources to ensure the safety and security of the Supreme Court and the justices,” Mayorkas said.
In early June, Justice Brett Kavanaugh was the target of an assassination attempt, and two of the justices’ young children were targeted in posts online.
A few weeks later, police arrested a Texas man for allegedly threatening to shoot the Supreme Court justices with an AK-47 after they overturned Roe, according to Fox News.
Responding to Bee, Hot Air blogger Allahpundit said her comments were, at the very least, “unwise.”
The blogger wrote:
We had an assassination plot against a justice foiled just a few weeks ago. The marshal of the Court is now urging local law enforcement to do more to keep protesters away from the justices’ homes. We’ll probably arrive soon at the point where the Court’s members need to travel with a security detail at all times, assuming we’re not there already. Egging on liberals to confront the Court’s members whenever they’re encountered in the wild amidst that atmosphere is unwise.
According to Axios, a Department of Homeland Security report in May warned that radical abortion activists threatened to burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their law clerks when the court overturned Roe. The report said these pro-abortion extremists also plan to target churches and other places of worship.
The FBI recently announced an investigation into the pro-abortion violence, and Republican leaders are urging the Department of Justice to do the same.
Pro-life advocates and churches also have been targets of violence and threats. Since the Supreme Court issued its ruling June 24, LifeNews has documented an average of four vandalism or arson attacks every day against pro-life advocates, and dozens more since the leak in May.
According to Tennessee Lookout, someone smashed a window and threw a Molotov cocktail into Hope Clinic for Women last wee in Nashville, Tennessee. Two weeks ago, a pro-life pregnancy center in Longmont, Colorado, also was set on fire and spray-painted with the threat, “If abortions aren’t safe neither are you.”
And in one particularly horrific incident in Los Angeles, an abortion activist is facing attempted murder charges after allegedly trying to burn a police officer with a flamethrower during a pro-abortion protest.
