Violent activists from the radical left orchestrated a vocal demonstration outside the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the conservative Heritage Foundation. Their protest targeted “Project 2025,” an initiative aimed at assisting conservative politicians in challenging the influence of the “Deep State” in the event of Republican victories in the 2024 elections for the White House, U.S. Senate, and U.S. House of Representatives.

Months before the protest, Mike Gonzalez from the Heritage Foundation highlighted the concerns of the “permanent bureaucracy” and its supporters regarding Project 2025. The protesters, using megaphones, attempted to encircle the Heritage Foundation’s building with yellow tape reading “Stop Project 2025.”

Under the banner of “Stop the Coup 2025!” the demonstrators sought to intimidate conservative staffers and politicians in Capitol Hill and throughout the nation’s capital. Memories of past protests outside conservative Supreme Court Justices’ homes fueled their actions. One activist declared the need to track down personal details of conservatives, including residences, places of worship, and social circles. Calls to “disrupt business as usual” for conservatives echoed through the crowd.

The unrest extended to conservative justices’ neighborhoods following the leak of a draft opinion suggesting the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The protests, marked by abusive language and intimidation, led to the arrest of an individual charged with attempted assassination outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.

Similar disruptive threats targeted Catholic churches, notably St. Peter’s and St. Joseph’s parishes, in proximity to the U.S. Capitol.

Project 2025, aiming to diminish the administrative state’s power, drew attention and opposition from globalist leftists. Heritage Foundation president Kevin Roberts emphasized the necessity to reduce unelected bureaucrats’ influence, distinguishing this initiative as an offensive strategy not seen in recent history.

Roberts, in a World Economic Forum panel discussion, advocated rejecting proposals from the Forum, stating that anyone unwilling to reclaim power from unelected bureaucrats is unfit for the next conservative administration.

The left’s heightened anxiety over a potential Trump victory in 2024 was evident in their efforts to organize against “Stop the Coup” and “Resistance Movements.” Jessico Bowman from the Republican Liberty Caucus highlighted the radical left’s concern, emphasizing the need for all Americans to take notice of the coordinated efforts and threatening language directed towards supporters of Donald Trump. Over 75 organizations, spanning the conservative movement, joined the Heritage Foundation project’s advisory board, reflecting a broad coalition opposing the left’s stance.
