Restoring separation between private and public spheres during protests at SCOTUS judges’ homes: Continetti


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Matthew Continetti, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and Hugh Hewitt, a radio host, discussed inflation and anti-abortion protests at Supreme Court justices’ homes on Friday in “Special Report.”

HEWITT: The markets are very upset and [Sen.] Ted Cruz is right. The president can go out every day between now and November and tell everyone that the economy is doing well and it is the best economy that has ever existed. They pay $125 at the pump to fill their truck. They know what the grocery bill is. And the 30-year fixed mortgage is down about 5% for the first time since 2010, I believe. We have to go higher. It will go higher. We are going to get an interest rate of half a point almost every two months for next year. It is truly impossible for the President to cover up the disaster that has unfolded for the average American consumer.

CONTINETTI: We must reestablish the distinction between the private sphere and the public sphere. It’s one thing to have a protest outside the Supreme Court building, if this opinion becomes the final decision. It’s another thing to go to churches, to target people’s homes. This violates the distinction that all civilized societies make between the private and the public. And it’s a reminder that if this opinion becomes the upholding decision, it will return abortion law to democratic states and procedures. And that means rule of law, not mob rule.
