A week after the assassination attempt on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a small group of 17 protesters headed to Chevy Chase, Maryland Wednesday to march to his home, as well as to the home of Chief Justice John Roberts. a week over a month.

This event followed an assassination attempt on June 8 in which a California man was arrested after telling authorities he was going to try to kill Kavanaugh and was in the Kavanaugh area.

Protesters gathered in a small market about 10 minutes’ walk from Cavanaugh’s house. When asked by The Daily Signal if they thought the protest in front of the judges’ houses contributed to the assassination attempt, they were adamant that the two were unrelated.

Eventually, the group began to make their way to Kavanaugh’s house. All the way they chanted and beat drums. Protesters carried LGBTQ+ pride flags, “Don’t step on my womb” flags, and posters of cartoons of judges reading “Liar”. One protester was wearing a red “The Handmaid’s Tale” cape.

Eventually, the marchers reached Cavanaugh’s house. Law enforcement agencies were present and lined up along the yards and sidewalks of the judge’s house. Screaming “Hey hey! Ho-ho! Cavanaugh must go!” and “Regulate weapons, not corpses!” protesters circled around the judge’s building several times.

The protesters then made their way to Roberts’ home. As in the Cavanaugh house, they went around the block several times calling the judges “Christofascists” promoting “theocracy.”

The marchers then returned to Kavanaugh’s house. They walked around his block and sang a song that called Kavanaugh a “rapist” and a “fascist.”

The end of the protest came about an hour and a half after it began. They finished for the night but plan to be back next week.
