Twitter has suspended the group that published the home addresses of some conservative Supreme Court justices.
The group, Ruth Sent Us, published six home addresses of six Supreme Court justices, including Amy Coney Barrett, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch, Fox News reports.
“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights,” the group’s website read at the time the addresses were published. “We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics.”
In May, Ruth Sent Us was banned from TikTok. Their account was later reinstated.
The group has been encouraging rallies and protests outside conservative justices’ homes after the Supreme Court recently ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Fundamentalists want us to cower in fear of their armed attacks of our homes, schools and clinics,” a tweet from Ruth Sent Us said. “They expect us to go high when they go low. We refuse. We’re committed to non-violence. Our protests are peaceful and joyful. Protest #SCOTUS6 with @OurRightsDC.”
Ruth Sent Us had tweeted an interactive Google map that showed the home address of justices in the Washington, D.C. area. However, Google disabled the map.
The group had also previously encouraged followers to target the school where Justice Barrett’s children attend and the family’s church.
“Falls Church is a People of Praise stronghold. She sends her seven kids to a People of Praise school that she sat on the Board of Directors for. She attends church DAILY,” the post said.
Ruth Sent Us is not the only group trying to target the homes of Supreme Court justices. In June, a man was arrested near Justice Kavanaugh’s house in Maryland.
The man, Nicholas John Roske, was charged with attempted murder of a Supreme Court justice after police found he had a pistol, ammunition, knife, zip ties, pepper spray, duct tape and other items. He allegedly told police he wanted to break into Kavanaugh’s house and kill him.
