The vileness makes you sick to your stomach.

What's that you smell in the Supreme Court?​


Answer is liberal hypocrisy.

Justices Sotomayor and Stephen Breyer insisted that overturning Roe in whole or in part would bring ruin upon the court by abandoning the principle of stare decisis, or the respect for precedent. Yet neither showed the same unflagging adherence to precedent when they sought to overturn conservative doctrines. Notably, Sotomayor pointed out another allegedly “political” decision in the court’s recognition of an individual right to bear arms; she and Breyer both indicated a willingness to overturn the ruling in that case, District of Columbia v. Heller. After that decision, both continued to dissent and argue that “the Framers did not write the Second Amendment in order to protect a private right of armed self-defense.” Indeed, they may reaffirm that position this term.

Sotomayor’s nose for judicial politics was also less sensitive when she recently called upon students to campaign against abortion laws — a major departure from the court’s apolitical traditions. After telling the students that “You know, I can’t change Texas’s law, but you can and everyone else who may or may not like it can go out there and be lobbying forces in changing laws that you don’t like.” She added: “I am pointing out to that when I shouldn’t because they tell me I shouldn’t.” That was more than a whiff of politics, but the same legal commentators applauding her “stench” comment were silent in condemning her direct call for political action on abortion. There also were few objections to the stench of politics when the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg publicly opposed a presidential candidate.

They are not the only figures showing such selective outrage. During the confirmation hearing for Justice Kavanaugh, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) demanded that Kavanaugh promise to respect stare decisis on cases like Roe, but then called for overturning cases like Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Democratic groups often decry the conservative majority as “partisan” while demanding the packing of the court to guarantee an immediate liberal majority.

There is so much hypocrisy, so much flip flopping, so many two faced politicians in DC on both sides of the aisle. The entire system is a cesspool.

Saying everybody does it is a cop out. It's important to sort through the narratives and search for truth and honesty. Not easy to find, but it's out there.
The OP was dissing the liberals on SCOTUS. But they are just half the problem. Both sides are scum and care just about power. There are a few good people but they are a major minority....to play word games. A pox on all of them.

You mean like the Cali folks here that live in gated white communities? Those that tell everyone how things should be and lie constantly about their state? The folks that demean others and mock "flyover" states as if they're better than them?
