CNN’s Jarrett Defends Protesting Outside Justices’ Homes: Conversations About Civility ‘Miss the Mark’

‘So far all of the protests seem overwhelmingly nonviolent’
By Grabien Staff


JARRETT: “I think for a lot of people a conversation about civility feels like it misses the mark when constitutional rights that you believe that you had for over 50 years are about to be overturned. The justices have security. So far all of the protests seem overwhelmingly nonviolent. There are plenty of protests that happen every single day in this country, around the country at abortion clinics, blocking women from getting into clinics and we don't cover those as if there's four-alarm fires. And so, yes, there are going to be protests in front of Kavanaugh’s house because people are angry. And as long as they stay non violent, I think for most -- for most of the people who are watching it, you can understand where they're coming from. Even if you may think politically it's not the right thing you can understand sort of where that animated feeling is coming from."
