Here we go again with liberals calling for Democrats to ‘pack the court’ and add more liberal Justices to the Supreme Court’s roster.
While this all may seem silly to most of us, pay attention to this type of rhetoric because Democrats are trying to get this notion normalized.
The gaggle of hens on ‘The View’ were warming their audience up on the idea with host Ana Navarro making a wide range of false accusations against the current Conservative Justices:
“If he [Chief Justice John Roberts] doesn’t understand why Americans are questioning the legitimacy of the court, let me explain it to him. Number one, there’s two Supreme Court justices who have serious sexual harassment or assault accusations against them, and who a lot of Americans think — don’t have the moral character to be in the court.
Number two, they’re making decisions that are way out of touch and against the majority of Americans. There are judges in there who have been appointed under a shroud of hypocrisy. Merrick Garland couldn’t get a hearing because it was an election year, but Amy Coney Barrett got appointed and confirmed five minutes before an election. There was an unprecedented leak of a decision.
And last, and let’s not forget because it’s not least, there is a Supreme Court justice who is married to a wack job, [applause] who at the very least was on the fringes, involved on the fringes of January 6. Maybe at the worst more. We don’t know because the January 6 Committee has not called her up, yet.
So, I hope that is a 101 explanation for dummies on why Americans think there is a legitimacy issue with the Supreme Court.”
Later in the show, Sunny Hostin chimed in and just blurted the quiet part out loud—They want to see the court packed with liberal Justices:
“We had warning from Sotomayor. She said this, I think last year. She said that the Supreme Court won’t survive the stench of overturning Roe v. Wade before they overturned it. And she said, “will this institution survive the stench this creates in the public perception that the Constitution and its reading are just political acts? I don’t see how it is possible.”
And we all now know that she probably had some insight into the fact that Roe v. Wade was going to be overturned, and I don’t know how they get rid of the stench without packing the court”
Hostin went on to argue that before this year, she had never heard anyone talk about the political affiliation of the judges—Which, either Hostin is full of it or she’s been living under a rock. The political affiliation of the Supreme Court judges has always been a topic of conversation for as long as I can remember.
I cannot think of a time when a sitting president didn’t select a judge who supported the values of his party. Liberals can’t acknowledge that fact and seem hellbent on rewriting the rules to fit their agenda. What happens then, when it all blows up in their faces and suddenly we have 12 Justices that they don’t agree with? Keep packing?
Give me a break.
The problem with shows like ‘The View’ pushing this narrative is that it makes it just a little easier for politicians when they want to ‘tweak’ the system to push an agenda.
