A bullet was fired through a window of the Virginia Attorney General’s Office after Republican AG Jason Miyares threatened stiff legal consequences against the pro-abortion radicals planning and executing attacks on churches should they follow through with attack plans in Virginia. Uniting under names like “Ruth Sent Us,” far-left, pro-abortion radicals have threatened and carried out attacks on churches and pro-life groups across the country in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s Roe leak. In one instance, the offices of a pro-life Wisconsin non profit were even fire bombed.
The bullet was fired into the Virginia Attorney General’s Office just days after AG Jason Miyares issued a public statement warning the “extreme left” of the legal consequences they could face should they choose to attack Virginia churches.
“My office will be monitoring protest activities directed at houses of worship and will refer alleged criminal violations to the United States Department of Justice or to the appropriate Commonwealth’s Attorney,” Miyares said in his Saturday statement, as pro-abortion radicals planned to kick-off their violent campaign nationwide on Mother’s Day. “I will not hesitate to bring suit to protect the religious freedom of this Commonwealth,” Miyares went on to say, highlighting his authority to bring civil suits against those who interfere with the religious freedom of Virginians.
Just two days later, on Monday night, a bullet was found by custodial staff at the Virginia Attorney General’s sixth floor office in Richmond’s Barbara Johns Building. Police were called to the scene and when they arrived, found a small hole in the office’s window indicating where the bullet had entered, The Washington Examiner reports.
Despite rampant threats made against pro-life activists, elected officials, and Supreme Court Justices, Chief Deputy AG Chuck Slemp downplayed the incident to the press and claimed it doesn’t appear that the office was targeted. AG Miyares has yet to post any information regarding the incident to social media. Slemp reportedly told The Examiner that “there is no indication that this incident was targeted at the OAG specifically or any individual employee.”
In addition to the attack on the Attorney General’s Office, in the aftermath of the Roe draft ruling leak, a Northern Virginia pregnancy center was vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti, and radical demonstrators have staged “protests” to harass Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito at his Virginia home. That demonstration has led to sharp criticism of Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin, who has refused to step in and stop the obvious intimidation effort at Justice Alito’s private home.
For his part, Miyares says the home protests s are illegal under Virginia law but that the decision to prosecute the demonstrators is not his to make.
