With the death of Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, you are going to hear plenty of people wax rhapsodic over her accomplishments. So many of them will try to tell you how she was a champion for equal rights and equality.
Ginsburg was sometimes asked when there would be enough women on the Supreme Court. Her response: “When there are nine.” She’d explain: “Some people are taken aback until they remember that for most of our country’s history there were only men on the high court bench.”
That isn’t a quest for equality. That is a desire for vengeance. Asking the men of today to become second class citizens as atonement for the acts of people who are now dead. This is no different than demanding reparations: expecting white people of today to pay money to blacks because of slavery- a policy which ended a century before most Americans were even born.
There are those who would demand that her replacement not be selected until after the election, so the new Senate can confirm the new Justice.
She could have retired in 2016 and been replaced by an Obama selectee, but chose not to. Why? This decision had nothing to do with continuing her ideals. She wanted to remain in power. Her life was a lust and desire to be powerful. She was going to retire under a Hillary Clinton Presidency and become the first Female Justice to be replaced by the first Female President.
Her life wasn’t about equality, it was about the quest for power and notoriety. She bet on an HRC victory and lost.
The Democrats could have selected Scalia’s replacement in 2016, and the accusation is that the Republicans wouldn’t allow his selectee to be voted upon. That is pure BS. The Obama administration could have had Scalia’s replacement in 2016. All they had to do was offer a replacement that was not a hard core leftist. If they had offered a more centrist candidate, the Republicans would have likely approved. Why?
You see, everyone who mattered thought that Hillary was going to be the next President. The Democrats believed it so much, they decided to stick to the extremist pick on the theory that HRC was going to ram through a leftist candidate to replace Scalia and swing the court to the left.
They bet on an HRC victory. Trump’s victory destroyed all of that. They look and see that they are likely not going to win the 2020 Presidential elections. They knew that and were going to cheat their way to a Biden victory, boot Biden out of office, and place Kamala Harris in the Whitehouse as the first female President. RBG knew this and was going to finally get her wish of being replaced by the first female President.
She failed again. Now the Democrats are going to lose the Presidency, their hope of having the first Female President, and they are going to lose the Supreme Court.
That, frankly, pisses them right the fuck off.
