Watching the left and liberals, in general, react to the Donald Trump presidency has been quite entertaining, but until Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement – and the reality that The Donald was going to get to name another conservative to the post when Kennedy had been a court swinger, occasionally throwing decisions the left’s way – we really hadn’t seen the resistance at its worst.
There have been a lot of loud-mouthed celebrities spouting off about the regime and power change in Washington, but The View’s Joy Behar put it in terms that this week’s hysteria demanded.
“Let’s have everybody a Republican,” Behar said sarcastically. “The Supreme Court, the Congress, the presidency. What is that called? Dictatorship, I believe.”
A dictator is a single individual calling all the shots. President Trump needs all the other parts to actually make things run. It’s called being a republic.
Besides, we’ve seen this movie with other casts of characters before. Bill Clinton had Congress, and so did Barack Obama. That’s how we got the Death Tax and ObamaCare, and ant-Americans Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, Sonja Sotomayor, and Elena Kagen on the court. Conservatives didn’t like that, but we didn’t call those two dictators.
Fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg was also very upset at the prospect of Trump being able to get another judge on the bench.
“If you take my right away from me to judge what I do for my family and my body, I got a little problem with that,” she said. “You got a problem — you don’t want people to take your guns, well get out of my behind. Get out of my vagina.”
Whoopi, honey, hate to break this to you, but no one with any sense wants to be anywhere near your vagina.
When it comes down to it, the left is rightfully terrified that there is a bullseye on Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized killing children in the womb and violated the states rights of all fifty state governments. That would put the procedure and its legality in the hands of the locals, something those in favor of killing babies really do not want.
And just wait…there’s at least one other justice of a seasoned age who might not be around the court much longer. The liberals will really be in pain over that when and if it comes to pass.
