The chilling 911 call that ensued has been used by the Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative judicial advocacy organization, in a new ad targeting Democrats ahead of the midterm elections.
The ad begins with the audio of the 911 call, with suspect Nicholas John Roske explaining to the operator that he was armed and had intended to harm Kavanaugh.
"What were you coming to do, just to hurt him?" the operator asks.
"Correct," the Roske replies.
Roske would later go on to plead not guilty to the charges levelled against him.
"This assassination attempt on a Supreme Court justice," the ad continues, "should have been a tipping point for Democrats. How far does it have to go before Democrats stop endangering justices?"
Clips of Democrats such as Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, Elizabeth Warren, and the Squad are superimposed with ominous music and tweets from those on the left calling for violence directed at the Supreme Court and its justices.
"Democrats are putting the lives of Supreme Court justices and their families in danger by encouraging radical protestors and refusing to condemn the ongoing threats against the justices," JCN wrote on Twitter. "Enough is enough."
Following leaked revelations that Roe v. Wade would be overturned, protestors took to the streets, and in many cases, right to the front doors of Supreme Court justices, whose addresses had been widely shared.
Instead of condemning the actions of the protestors, many high-profile Democrats condoned their actions, so long as nobody got hurt.
Among them was Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. When asked if he was "comfortable with protests ... outside the homes of Supreme Court justices," he said "yes," so long as they were "peaceful."
While the majority were nothing more than peaceful demonstrations, it has been argued that by allowing protests to go ahead unquestioned, it was only a matter of time before someone acted violently. In the case of Kavanaugh, they nearly did.
