Supreme Court Exit

Now what, Mitch?

Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring. President Biden will nominate a Black woman to fill that seat and Mitch McConnell and Company are freaking out.

Republicans’ heads are exploding and their testicles are shriveling at the very idea that a Black woman could serve on the Supreme Court. Look out for Republicans today. Keep your distance. You don’t want to get any white lives only matter brain matter on you in case one of their heads explode while you’re waiting for your table at Cracker Barrel.

Biden has doubled the amount of Black women on appellate courts. He has nomitated 8 so far. Courts are more diverse now than any other time in history. He didn’t make moderate diverse picks, he’s made extremely diverse picks and that makes white heads explode.

Tomi Lahren was one of the first Fox News white talking heads to say something awful about Biden picking a Black woman — “We saw how well that worked out with Kamala Harris.”

No more white men!!!!

No more Catholics!!!

In the history of the Supreme Court, only 5 justices have been female and only 2 have been Black. The rest have been white men. 108 of them. White men have been nominating and confirming white men to look out for the interests and power of white men for 232 years.

Trump got to nominate 3 justices in 4 years. He didn’t know any of them and could have cared less. He just did what Mitch McConnell told him to do, indifferent to the whole process. He gave Neil Gorsuch Merrick Garland’s seat a little over 2 months after he landed in the White House.

Brett Kavanaugh lucked out and got the seat vacated by Anthony Kennedy after he resigned abruptly. His son, Justin Kennedy, was Trump’s banker at Deutsch Bank who loaned him $1 billion when I no one else would give him any money. Brett Kavanaugh’s $2 million worth of debts were mysteriously paid off before the Senate confirmation hearings. His performance was disastrous (he bombed the job interview) and women across the country raised hell demanding that his name be withdrawn. Nevertheless, he persisted.

After the state of the union address in 2018 Trump shook hands with Supreme Court justices as is the custom. When he got to Justice Kennedy they talked about their kids. Kennedy congratulated Trump on doing a good job reading the teleprompter. Trump replied, “That’s very nice coming from you. And say hello to your boy, special guy.” Justice Kenney then said, “Your kids have been very nice to him.” Trump told him, “They love him, and they love him in New York. He’s a great guy.” Is Anthony Kennedy going to be questioned by the New York AG Letitia James?

Trump’s third nomination, Amy Coney Barrett, was rammed through in 27 days after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That’s not nearly enough to time to properly vet someone, especially a very conservative member of the Christian cult People of Praise. She had little experience but was pushed through during an out of control deadly pandemic a week before the 2020 presidential election, after millions had already voted early.

Joe Biden was a longtime member of the Senate Judiciary Committee when he was a senator. He chaired it from 1987 to 1995 and presided over the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearing in which Anita Hill bravely testified about him sexually harassing her. Biden was tough on her and grew to regret that because unlike a lot of white men in their 70s, Joe Biden evolves. In April of 2019 he called Anita Hill to apologize for how he handled her testimony.

Mitch McConnell is expected to pull out all of the stops to keep Biden from filling the seat. Democrats are prepared. Given that the Republicans in the Senate have proven themselves to be beholden to the white supremacist status quo post Trump, they’re on their own. It wasn’t always like this. Justice Breyer was confirmed with 87 votes.

Mitch McConnell can’t use the filibuster to block Biden’s nomination. He already blew it up to confirm his 3 justices.

The only Black man on the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas has been very bad for Black people. He votes with the white supremacist status quo and is married to a Trump loving white supremacist, Ginni Thomas.

Speaking of white supremacists, rich white Republican Senator Ron Johnson said this about innocent kids in America living in poverty: “Well, people decide to have families and become parents. That’s something they need to consider when they make that choice. I’ve never really felt it was society’s responsibility to take care of other people’s children.” He speaks for most Republicans. In Congress and the Supreme Court.

No more white men.
