Tonight’s forecast: Angry with a chance of “fiery-ness.”

Let me remind you that the terrorist(s) known as Jane’s Revenge explicitly called for violence on the evening the Dobbs decision was handed down in a statement posted last month. Title: “Night of Rage.”
We need the state to feel our full wrath.
We need to express this madness fully and with ferocity. We need to quit containing ourselves.
We need them to be afraid of us…
On the night the final ruling is issued——a specific date we cannot yet predict, but we know is arriving imminently——we are asking for courageous hearts to come out after dark.
Whoever you are and wherever you are, we are asking for you to do what you can to make your anger known.
We have selected a time of 8pm for actions nationwide to begin, but know that this is a general guideline…
To those who work to oppress us: If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t either. We are everywhere.
Allegedly, protesters outside the Court this afternoon were circulating Clarence Thomas’s home address:

I can’t imagine that any of the justices will be at their lightly guarded residences tonight but that doesn’t excuse these droogs from trying to intimidate them at their homes.
Incitement is happening online too, of course. Enlarge the images here:

“Violence is a legitimate and appropriate response to oppression.”
Some of the rhetoric from lefty politicians today has also been spicy. Not “burn down the Supreme Court” spicy or “break down Clarence Thomas’s door” spicy, but delegitimizing the Court and winking at disobedience of the ruling. Here’s one well-known member of the “party of norms” not worrying much about respect for the Court as an institution:

And here’s the lieutenant governor of California talking vaguely about “defiance,” enough so that a confused Katy Tur felt obliged to ask her if she was encouraging lawbreaking. No, came the reply, although the follow-up was vague:
"Come to California. You will have that freedom here," California Lt. Gov. Kounalakis says discussing Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, adding "be prepared to live in defiance of these six people," referencing Supreme Court justices. https://t.co/RdYLvfum24 pic.twitter.com/CgniYdzj59

Maxine Waters is also preaching “defiance” and seems less concerned about choosing her words carefully:
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters calls for pro-abortion extremists to "fight": "The hell with the Supreme Court! We will defy them!"

There was only one Democrat I saw this afternoon who took care to stress that protests should remain fully peaceful, not just mostly peaceful. Fortunately, it was the guy with the biggest megaphone:
Biden urges non-violent action in the wake of the Roe decision:
"Keep all protests peaceful. Peaceful, peaceful, peaceful. No intimidation. Violence is never acceptable."
He then says: "I hear you, I support you, I stand with you." pic.twitter.com/J83tVWKQa4

Rioters and domestic terrorists can be trusted to take Biden’s warning to heart, no?
Ah, well. At least he tried.
I’ll leave you with this clip featuring your favorite RINO from “The View,” Ana Navarro. She’s perilously close here to suggesting that her disabled relatives should have been aborted. We all deal with trauma differently, I guess.
GHOULISH: CNN's faux "Republican" commentator and View co-host Ana Navarro cities her mentally handicapped brother, her STEP-grandaughter with Downs Syndrome, and her autistic STEP-grandson as reasons to have babies killed by abortionists.
What about their bodies and lives Ana? pic.twitter.com/N9M0mFaMDu
