The overturning of Roe v Wade resulted in the political left attacking the Supreme Court. It also resulted in protestors at the Supreme Court Justices’ homes (despite the fact that protesting against a judge’s home is illegal (Merrick Garland has chosen not to enforce that law). The left has attacked Clarence Thomas since before he was actually on the Court. The most recent attack comes from a Senator in Massachusetts who is a walking advertisement for term limits.
On Tuesday, BizPacReview reported the following:
Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey introduced a bill to pack the Supreme Court on Tuesday, claiming during a press conference on the legislation that Justices Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett have “no right” to be on the Court.
Markey’s Judiciary Act of 2023, which pro-abortion groups Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America endorsed, would add four seats to the Supreme Court. During his press conference on the Supreme Court steps, Markey called for Justice Clarence Thomas to resign and claimed that two justices have “no right to be there.”
“In 2016, Senate Republicans broke the rules and packed the court,” Markey said. “In 2020, Donald Trump helped them to break the rules again.”
Republicans refused to confirm Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court in 2016. After former President Donald Trump took office, Republicans confirmed Gorsuch in 2017.
After Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, Republicans confirmed Barrett in October 2020.
“We now have two justices on the bench, who frankly, have no right to be there,” he continued. “This Republican court packing has given us partisan justices eager to toss aside decades of precedent to satisfy their deep-pocketed, right-wing special interest benefactors.”
His solution to the charge that the Republicans have packed the court is to have the Democrats pack the court. How in the world does that make sense?
The Supreme Court is the last defense against the radical left’s political agenda. That is the reason the political left is attacking them so hard. This is a battle the political left needs to lose.
