Washington Post: Kavanaugh neighbors complain that protesters are at the doorstep of residents, and calling them ‘Karens fascists
Protesters chant outside of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house following the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
Supreme Court Justice The neighbors of Brett Kavanaugh Are frustrated by the actions of protesters who are occupying their homes and some who are engaged in pro-choice protests have decided to target residents personally instead of addressing noise complaints.
This month, Fox News Digital spoke with neighbors who had painted a picture of protesters who were noisy and intimidating and threaten to escalate if they don’t get what they desire. In addition, residents said that protesters had hurt them and their children with megaphones and drums, shouting “f— you,” and “f— your children.”
A piece published on Wednesday by The Washington Post shows that very little has changed over the last two months. The newspaper spoke to eight different people from the area. Seven of them expressed their frustration regarding the protests and cited “jarring language” and rising tensions.
Residents, in some instances, have tried to confront protesters about their tactics but were swiftly exasperated.

“They just call us fascists,” Lyric Winik one of the residents of the area said to The Post. “Nothing about this is healthy. We’ve got kids on this street scared to leave their homes.”
She pointed out that the vast majority of residents within the neighborhood think that those protesting are “gotten out of control.” Demands for a reduction in the volume have been met with more raucous responses, including the latest chant which refers to neighbors “Karens,” a pejorative phrase that is often used to target White women with privilege. Winik claimed that she believes that their actions go against their pro-choice agenda.
“I do think they’re hurting their own cause,” she said.
