There can be no avoidance of the fact that conservatives and liberals think differently. Conservatives are opposed to unjust violence. Leftists promote and protect violence by leftists. That is because leftists have built a wall of separation between themselves and God and are standing on the stupid degenerate side of that wall.

Merrick Garland is loathed to prosecute crimes against abortion opponents. Hundreds of acts of violence against abortion opponents go without prosecution each year in the US because of leftist protections for those sorts of leftist violence. Here are a few that have occurred in the last 14 months under Biden and Garland:

Merrick Garland Says DOJ Not Prosecuting Attacks on Pro-Life Groups Because They Happen at Night

Senator Mike Lee demanded an explanation from Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday about the prosecution of dozens of pro-life advocates compared to two arrests of abortion activists despite the wave of violence toward pro-life organizations and churches in the past year.

IRJ reports the Utah Republican questioned Garland during a U.S. Senate hearing amid growing concerns about the Biden administration using the Department of Justice as a weapon against its political opponents. ...

At the same time, Lee said there have been at least “81 reported attacks on pregnancy centers” and “130 attacks on Catholic churches” – including arson, vandalism and death threats – since May when someone leaked a draft opinion of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, according to the report.

However, Lee said Garland’s department only arrested two people in connection to the violence.

“So how do you explain this disparity by reference to anything other than politicization of what’s happening there?” Lee asked. ...

“Your department is not trusted because it has been politicized… You have the ability to rein it in. I ask that you do so promptly,” he said, according to The Blaze. ...

Frustrated by the inaction, a New York pregnancy resource center recently launched its own private investigation into a June arson attack that caused more than half a million dollars in damage and injured two firefighters.

In November, FBI Director Christopher Wray admitted that most of the abortion-related attacks in the past year have targeted pro-life organizations. “Since the Dobbs decision, probably in the neighborhood of 70 percent of our abortion-related violence cases or threats cases are cases of violence or threats against … pro-life organizations,” he told a U.S. Senate committee. ...

LifeNews has been keeping track of the attacks. Since January 2022, they include: (a total of 260 incidents are listed here):

Garland got toasted over this by republican senators on the senate judiciary committee. As usual Garland was weak and pathetic.

Weaponizing our government to destroy speech is despicable.
