The Far-Right Is Fearmongering About Abortion Activists Attacking Churches

Within minutes of Roe v. Wade being overturned on Friday morning, far-right figures were already spreading conspiracies about a planned “night of rage” and urging their supporters to take up arms in response.

The United States Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide, dealt a huge blow to many in the country, but for the far-right it’s a day to celebrate—or fight: Many are busy hyping threats of a violent retaliation to the SCOTUS decision.

Some far-right influencers say they’re expecting a “night of rage” from a large group of organized abortion-rights activists, some are urging their followers to go and protect the churches and streets from the imagined marauders, and others are simply salivating over the possibility of violence.

“It's a good thing the Supreme Court affirmed our right to conceal carry right before this ‘night of rage’ you guys are planning,” wrote right-wing commentator Matt Walsh. White nationalist internet celebrity Nicholas Fuentes simply wrote “DEFEND YOUR CHURCHES TONIGHT!” on his Telegram page. Right-wing and church-affiliated YouTubers have been creating videos for several days in regards to this idea, some even giving step-by-step instructions on “how to protect your church from the pro-abortion 'Night of Rage.”

Kristofer Goldsmith, a senior fellow for the Innovation Lab at Human Rights First, told VICE News that he’s seen extremists messaging about the “night of rage” for weeks and that it’s now being filtered into the mainstream by far-right influencers. Goldsmith said that “outside of vandalism” there is “no evidence of a far-left conspiracy to commit violence.”

2. The right activist ARE THE ONES WHO ARE VIOLENT. They attacked our country.

Do not allow them to assign violence to us. Every accusation they make is a confession of what they have already done or are planning to do.

7. This was always the plan:

“It's a good thing the Supreme Court affirmed our right to conceal carry right before"...before they overturned Roe v. Wade.

The Supreme Court is arming its troops to prepare for a retaliation that only they can imagine.

13. They continuously do what they falsely accuse others of doing.

The hate and rape are coming from Inside their churches.

10. I think it's much more likely a far right, "pro-life" gunhumper will attack peaceful demonstrators.

It would be a twofer for them today since Biden just signed the gun bill.

14. Janes Revenge is out there as a violent pro abortion

group. They have done some stuff. Google them. There's quite a bit. I guess they bombed some places as well as doing some awful graffiti.

They did come out with something about a night of rage.

I don't think their numbers come close to White National Terrorists.

Kind of interesting. Actually. That's very '60s.

17. Someone did, apparently,

vandalize (not burn or permanently damage) an anti-abortion outfit in Madison, WI. It wasn't a church. And there are those who think it may have been one of their own who did it and not a pro-choice person at all. So there's that. Reichstag fires and all that sort of thing.
