Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) falsely suggested on Sunday that right-wing activists were never violent in their quest to end abortion rights for women.
During an appearance on Fox News, Graham whitewashed the right's history of clinic bombings, murder and violence over abortions.
"They want to make D.C. and Puerto Rico a state!" Graham said of liberals. "At the end of the day, they are -- constitutional anarchists are in charge of the Democratic Party."
"And I appreciate President Biden saying to the left, don't use violence," he continued. "What I worry about is this protest going unchecked at judges' homes is giving a green light that there are no rules anymore."
Graham said that he is urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to start arresting people who protest at judges' homes.
"If we don't watch it somebody's going to get killed out here," he asserted. "Do what we did. Go to the ballot box. Try to win elections. Don't burn down the country."

According to a report from the New York Times’ Charlie Savage, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has been making plans to overturn the 50-year-old Roe v Wade ruling based upon a memo that he wrote in 1985 where he counseled patience during the Ronald Reagan administration.
Alito, who wrote Friday’s decision that overturned Row — and subsequently set off mass demonstrations across the country by effectively turning women into second-class citizens — reportedly “cautioned the Reagan administration against mounting a frontal assault on Roe v. Wade.”
In his 1985 memo Alito, “advocated focusing on a more incremental argument: The court should uphold the regulations as reasonable. That strategy would ‘advance the goals of bringing about the eventual overruling of Roe v. Wade and, in the meantime, of mitigating its effects,” reports the Times Savage.
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences, he wrote. “And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”
According to the Times report, “In a memo on the cases, Mr. Alito displayed not only tactical acumen but personal passion, taking umbrage with a judge’s objection that forcing women to listen to details about fetal development before their abortions would cause ‘emotional distress, anxiety, guilt and in some cases increased physical pain,” with Alito dismissing their concerns by writing the such concerns “are part of the responsibility of moral choice.”
The Times reports that during Senate hearings on his appointment to the highest court in the land, when the 1985 memo was brought up, he responded, “When someone becomes a judge, you really have to put aside the things that you did as a lawyer at prior points in your legal career and think about legal issues the way a judge thinks about legal issues.”

Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy accused View co-host Ana Navarro of being a "eugenicist" because she supports abortion rights.
During a discussion on Fox News, co-host Will Cain noted that Navarro spoke in defense of the special needs community following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn federal abortion rights.
"What you are talking about is, in the alternative, death," Cain opined.
"It's eugenics," Duffy argued. "Ana Navarro is a eugenicist. She just said that to the world just now. She said because it can be difficult to have a child with special needs -- by the way, she included even, not just physical handicap, not just Down syndrome, which we know that community is being exterminated."
Cain accused Navarro of "an incredibly ugly sentiment."
"There is a eugenics mentality out there for people with special needs," Campos-Duffy insisted.
"That's the logical end-state!" co-host Pete Hegseth exclaimed. "If you think men and women should control whether or not a fetus becomes a born life then whatever variables and factors you can look at, you should be able to decide, 'Well, this is a good one. This is a bad one. I'm going to decide right now whether to take the life or not.'"
"Who gets to decide who is sufficiently human enough?" Campos-Duffy complained.
Cain dismissed the notion that the government should not "tell a woman what to do with her body" because, he said, "there's another body involved, another person."
"That's why they've wanted to say clump of cells or fetus, that it's not a baby," Hegseth pointed out.
