The Biden administration condemned an attack on the office of a pro-life group in Wisconsin Monday after the organization’s headquarters were set on fire, vandalized, and graffitied over the weekend.
“President Biden strongly condemns this attack and political violence of any stripe. The president has made clear throughout his time in public life that Americans have the fundamental right to express themselves under the Constitution, whatever their point of view,” an anonymous White House official told The Hill.
“But that expression must be peaceful and free of violence, vandalism, or attempts to intimidate,” the source said.
Madison’s police and fire departments were called to lobbying and advocacy organization Wisconsin Family Action’s headquarters last Saturday after reports of a fire. Wisconsin Family Action President Julaine Appling described part of the building being hit by a Molotov cocktail and someone spray-painting, “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either,” on one wall.
“What you’re going to see here is a direct threat against us,” Appling told Madison.com. “Imagine if somebody had been in the office when this happened. They would have been hurt.”
Protests have also been held outside the homes of Judges. The White House condemned this in a statement. “Judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety,” Psaki said.
The Republican National Committee accused the White House of not taking a hard enough line against destructive protests.
“Biden’s refusal to denounce left-wing violence and intimidation is dangerous and ensures it will not stop,” RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “These far-left radicals know they have permission from Biden and Democrats to commit violence against pro-life organizations, harass churchgoers, and threaten and obstruct the Supreme Court. Biden and Democrats are responsible as long as they remain silent.”
