Democrats can no longer control their rage at the United States Supreme Court.
Their rhetoric is getting ugly.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke one word about Clarence Thomas no one should say in public.
The current term of the Supreme Court ended with Democrats on the losing end of three major cases.
A 6-3 conservative majority handed down landmark decisions that ended affirmative action in college admissions, defended Christians’ First Amendment rights to not provide creative services for homosexual weddings, and struck down Joe Biden’s $400 billion student loan bailout scheme.
Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) ranted and raved about the Court obliterating pillars of the left’s power grabs over American institutions and culture.
Ocasio-Cortez complained that the conservative justices saying the Constitution means what it says and that all people are treated equally under the law, the First Amendment protects religious liberty, and that the president isn’t a king is somehow usurping the authority of Congress.
“We have justices saying that the Supreme Court is going themselves much too far. They are expanding their role into acting as though they are Congress itself. And that, I believe, is an expansion of power that we really must be focusing on. The danger of this court and the abuse of power in this court particularly as it is related to the entanglements around conflicts of interest, as well,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
The grand irony of this comment by Ocasio-Cortez is that it is Democrats that want the Court to act like a legislative body.
Liberals’ biggest wins at the Court – abortion on demand and homosexual marriage – came about because liberal justices invented rights out of thin air because of their belief that the Constitution is a “living” document.
And – of course – Ocasio-Cortez repeated the standard Democrat Party trope that if Democrats lose any policy fight democracy is now at risk.
“I truly do. And this is not a new, this is not a new development in history. This is part of our system of checks and balances. The courts, if they were to proceed without any check on their power, without any balance on their power, then we will start to see an undemocratic and frankly dangerous authoritarian expansion of power in the Supreme Court which what we are seeing now from overturning abortion to the ruling for discrimination and frankly stripping the full dignity and personhood of LGBTQ people in the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
Host Dana Bash asked Ocasio-Cortez if she supports taking action against the Court and Ocasio-Cortez responded in the affirmative.
Ocasio-Cortez announced that she supports impeaching Supreme Court justices and cited a phony scandal dreamed up by left-wing activists in the liberal media about Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito taking vacations and selling a home at a loss.
“There also must be impeachment on the table. We have a broad level of tools to deal with misconduct, overreach, and abuse of power and the Supreme Court which has not been receiving the adequate oversight necessary in order to preserve their own legitimacy. And in the process, they themselves have been destroying the legitimacy of the court, which is profoundly dangerous for our entire democracy,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded.
Just as Democrats claim every presidential election they lose is illegitimate, Democrats believe every institution they control is illegitimate.
And since there is no hope of Democrats controlling the Supreme Court anytime soon Ocasio-Cortez and other liberals want to destroy it.
