Democrats were in for a big surprise at the Supreme Court.
One of the left’s key priorities is facing a massive defeat.
That became clear when Brett Kavanaugh turned the tables on Joe Biden with one courtroom twist.
Americans for Prosperity and the Thomas More Law Center sued the state of California over a piece of legislation requiring charities to turn over their donor lists to the state.
The groups argued that this law violated their First Amendment rights by exposing their donors to death threats and boycotts in today’s charged political climate.
Justice Clarence Thomas quickly agreed with this argument.
“In this era,” Justice Thomas stated, “there seems to be quite a bit of loose accusations about organizations — for example, an organization that had certain views might be accused of being a white supremacist organization or racist or homophobic.”
Donor disclosure laws for charities and nonprofits are a key part of the law Ted Cruz dubbed the Corrupt Politicians Act that Joe Biden demanded Congress pass into law.
Democrats want charities and nonprofits to turnover their donor lists to the government so they can be made public opening up conservative donors to antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs terrorizing them at their homes or threatening their employers with economic terrorism unless they fire anyone who contributes to a right-leaning organization.
Brett Kavanaugh then readan amicus brief from the American Civil Liberties Union, and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund where the two left-wing groups agreed that the ability to maintain confidentiality of a group’s membership was key to preserving the right to freely associate.
“A critical corollary of the freedom to associate is the right to maintain the confidentiality of one’s associations, absent a strong governmental interest in disclosure,” the amicus brief stated.
Justice Samuel Alito cited this brief to shoot down arguments made by the state of California that donor identities would be kept confidential.
“The brief filed by the A.C.L.U. and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund says that we should regard your system as a system of de facto public disclosure because there have been such massive confidentiality breaches in California,” Justice Alito stated.
In fact there have been 1,800 examples of the state of California disclosing the names of individuals that contributed money to a charity.
Democrats can suppress free speech by leaning on the censors that work for Big Tech to erase conservative ideas from social media.
But another trick the left has up its sleeve to eliminate political opposition is making public the name and address of individuals that donate money to Republican causes.
However, the Supreme Court looks like they are about to slam the brakes on the left’s ability to utilize bullying and intimidation to financially strangle conservative groups by scaring away their donors.
