On Wednesday evening, tall fencing started going up around the Supreme Court in northeast Washington, D.C. as tensions rose between protesters following the leak of a draft opinion that signaled an impending overturn of Roe v. Wade.
Video footage and photographs show workers erecting the fence, which stands about eight feet high and resembles the fence the U.S. Capitol Police put up around the U.S. Capitol following the protest on Jan. 6, 2021.
As of now, the Supreme Court didn’t give details of the new barrier installed, including how long it will remain in place.
Wayne Dupree commented on the new fence installed overnight:
Boy, when the fencing when up around the Capitol, that’s all we heard about for eons. Breathless coverage on how the fence was needed to keep dangerous MAGA people out… all those dirty, violent “insurrectionists.”
There were hours of B-roll footage shot and aired of the fences surrounding the Capitol, and after it finally came down, every time there was another so-called “threat” and it had to go back up, it was national “breaking news.”
The media sure loved talking about that fence. But something very strange and curious has just happened.
Protective fencing was just put up around the Supreme Court after crazed left-wingers were going banshee and threatening to assassinate the justices and burn down the building — and now suddenly, nobody in the media cares about fencing anymore.
There’s no breathless coverage, and panel after panel of partisan pundits talking about the danger and the fencing What gives? What happened?Gee, I wonder why they stopped talking about fences?

“Looks like an insurrection to me.”
“How ironic when the left protests, it’s called a protest. When the right does it, it’s called an insurrection. Pretty sure if Roe V Wade gets put back to the states, there won’t be peaceful protests anywhere. Just the thought of it and the lefties are freaking out.”
“Looks like the left knows how violent and crazy their base is.”
“They need that fence to keep all the MAGA extremists out. Oh, wait, this time it’s Schumer and his mostly peaceful bunch.”
“hmmm..a fence securing out border is ‘a monument to white supremacy’ but apparently this fence is ok”
“Sure had that fence ready in a hurry! I know of no agency that works that fast. It’s almost like it was planned? hmmmmm”
And here’s what Rep. Boebert said about the new fencing:
“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.”

Both pro-abortion and pro-life protesters have been demonstrating outside the Supreme Court, with most supporting abortion.
Of course, tensions have flared during the protests. These left-wingers funded violent pro-abortion protesters at one point attacked pro-life protesters.
