The hits just keep on coming for the Democrat Party as this year’s Supreme Court term comes to a close. Obviously, the decisions have taken center stage, with Roe v. Wadebeing overturned, the Second Amendment getting affirmed, and the EPA being prevented from turning itself into its own fourth branch of government.
But after the decisions finished dropping on Thursday morning, the next shoe to drop was what cases would be taken up for the next term. One case already has the left losing its ever-loving mind: Moore vs. Harper.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took the news especially hard, declaring the Supreme Court was enacting a “coup” and seeking to end presidential elections. As I wrote about Elizabeth Warren’s doom-spelling reaction to the EPA decision, the strategy of proclaiming everything the end of the world is incredibly stupid because then nothing is the end of the world. AOC does even begin to understand that, and she’s having a banner week of rhetorical freakouts.
With all that said, you might be asking yourself why Democrats are so up in arms about the Supreme Court taking up this case. The answer is simple: They see it as a blow to their ability to direct elections in their favor.
Specifically, during the 2020 election, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decided to override the state’s constitution and its legislature in order to allow universal mail-in balloting. At the time, it was clearly an improper and abusive decision, but it helped Joe Biden greatly against Donald Trump, so Democrats loved it. If the Supreme Court ends up curtailing the power of the courts to override elected legislatures in making voting laws, it would end the left’s best tool in ensuring they can stack the deck, and we just can’t have that, can we?
AOC and her cohorts want the courts to have the power to dictate voting policies without the input of voters, full stop. If they lose that, they lose the ability to help dictate election outcomes as they likely did in Pennsylvania. The same goes for the drawing of congressional districts. In the past census cycle, court after court attempted to interfere in the district-drawing of legislatures, mostly in Republican states at the behest of leftwing activist groups. In the end, enough things went the GOP’s way to limit the damage, but it could have been much worse.
To summarize, while Democrats scream about “democracy,” all the Supreme Court has done is once again hand power back to the people. And frankly, after 50 years of the high court delivering blow after blow to conservatives, it’s pathetic to see the left behave the way they are. Jumping in a lake comes to mind.
