Liberals cannot contain their fury with the Supreme Court.
But now the corporate media is making things worse.
Now CNN picked a fight with the Supreme Court that every Democrat will live to regret.
In a speech at Notre Dame, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito struck back at world leaders that criticized his landmark opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which overturned Roe v. Wade.
Justice Alito poked fun at former United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Johnson complained about the Dobbs ruling and then resigned weeks later in disgrace.
“I had the honor this term of writing, I think, the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a whole string of foreign leaders who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law,” Alito told the crowd. “One of these was former Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But he paid the price.”
Justice Alito also ridiculed French President Emmanuel Macron and Prince Harry for whining about the Supreme Court returning the question of abortion to the states.
“Others are still – are still in office. President Macron and Prime Minister Trudeau, I believe, are two, but what really wounded me — what really wounded me was when the Duke of Sussex addressed the United Nations and seemed to compare the decision whose name may not be spoken with the Russian attack on Ukraine,” Alito declared.
Alito’s speech did not sit well with CNN’s left-wing host and serial plagiarist Fareed Zakaria.
In an appearance on Jim Acosta’s entertainment and propaganda program Zakaria whined that Alito having fun at the expense of pro-abortion world leaders somehow damaged the court’s legitimacy.
“It is much worse than that. I think it really damages the court’s legitimacy. One of the things that has kept the court’s legitimacy over time has been a sense of dignity, a sense of majesty, a sense that the justices are doing what they are doing for serious constitutional reasons. They don’t pay attention to the chitter chatter, they don’t pay attention to trivial news. That is why cameras are not allowed into the Supreme Court. Otherwise, why are nine unelected people, with life tenure, allowed to make these incredibly important decisions about 330 million people’s lives? Nobody elected them,” Zakaria began.
Zakaria then accused Alito of Trumpian-level insults and whined that it was “undignified.”
“The reason why they have that legitimacy, to put it very simply, is that they behave themselves, that they behave in accordance with the kind of dignity and majesty of the court. What Alito did, behaving like a cheap commentator, and not a particularly good one at that, was frankly disgusting. I thought it was the most undignified performance by a Supreme Court Justice I have seen in my lifetime. I don’t think that any of his predecessors would have done it. I think it is scandalous,” Zakaria concluded.
This episode exposed another fundamental truth about the left.
For all their talk of being the party that defends democracy and institutions Democrats only claim democracy and institutions function when the left gets its way.
If Republicans filibuster a bill, it is an attack on democracy.
If the Supreme Court hands down a ruling liberals don’t like the court is no longer legitimate and is attacking democracy.
Republicans are wising up to this game the media plays.
And it is why fewer and fewer Republican officeholders are engaging with the press.
