Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito became a bogeyman on the Left for authoring the majority opinion that overturned Roe v. Wade.
That decision caused all hell to break loose.
Now Samuel Alito smacked down a liberal Supreme Court Justice for crossing one major line.
Radical left-wing Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan is still whining about the Supreme Court ending the historical mistake of imposing nationwide abortion on demand forced on the nation by unelected judges who unilaterally created “rights” out of thin air.
Justice Kagan expressed the view commonly held on the Left that unless Democrats control every institution and win every policy fight then the American system lacks legitimacy.
In this case, Kagan argued the Supreme Court was not legitimate because Democrats lost a single court case.
“The very worst moments [in the court’s history] have been times when judges have even essentially reflected one party’s or one ideology’s set of views in their legal decisions,” Kagan claimed. “The thing that builds up reservoirs of public confidence is the court acting like a court and not acting like an extension of the political process.”
And naturally, Kagan said Democrats not controlling the Supreme Court and winning every major case meant American democracy was in peril.
“If, over time, the Court loses all connection with the public and with public sentiment, that is a dangerous thing for democracy,” Kagan concluded.
This was too much even for center-left Chief Justice John Roberts who voted with the liberals to keep Roe v. Wade on the books.
“Simply because people disagree with an opinion is not a basis for questioning the legitimacy of the Court,” Roberts said in response to Kagan’s comments.
Justice Samuel Alito offered the sharpest response to Kagan’s attacks on American democracy, slamming Kagan for crossing a line in saying the Court was “illegitimate.”
“It goes without saying that everyone is free to express disagreement with our decisions and to criticize our reasoning as they see fit,” Alito stated. “But saying or implying that the court is becoming an illegitimate institution or questioning our integrity crosses an important line.”
Democrats like to falsely claim they are defending American democracy.
But in reality, the true attacks on democracy exclusively come from the Left in the form of their calls to blow up the entire American system while disregarding Constitutional norms, just because they lose an election, policy fight, or Court case.
It’s left-wing extremists who want to junk the Electoral College, abolish the filibuster, and pack the Supreme Court in response to coming out on the losing end of electoral, legal, or legislative battles.
And if the Left got their way, American democracy would no longer exist as the nation would function as an authoritarian, one-party state.
Just like China or California.
