Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recently made an outlandish suggestion about President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. Clinton was speaking at the national convention for the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). She peddled a number of often used attacks on Republicans but what she said about Kavanaugh has caused many to scratch their heads.
“Let me say a word about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Clinton said. “This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights — including those to make our own health decisions.”
“It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of the Court for decades and to reverse decades of progress,” she declared.
Then came the real bizarre statement: “I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s.”
So in other words, Republicans want to bring back slavery, according to Clinton. Of course such a suggestion is ignorant, idiotic, and offensive. This type of scaremongering does little to build consensus and instead enrages the bases of each political party. And Clinton knows that. So her statement undoubtedly proves she would have been a terrible president who only would have been concerned with the liberal agenda.
PJ Media has more:
“The irony is, originalist Supreme Court justices like Kavanaugh would have agreed with Abraham Lincoln against the South, especially on the issue of slavery.
“The American Civil War started in 1861, after a tense decade of increasing hostility between Southern Democrats who wanted to extend slavery beyond its boundaries as established by constitutional laws and Northern Republicans who saw slavery as evil and wanted to keep it within those limits. Republican Abraham Lincoln campaigned on restraining the evil institution, but an activist Supreme Court ruled that slavery could extend into the territories.
“Ironically, another Republican president wants to restrain another activist Supreme Court, and Democrat Hillary Clinton is scaremongering.
“Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an originalist, which means he holds to the original intent of the Constitution and would uphold the laws as written. In the 1850s, that would have meant restraining the spread of slavery — Lincoln’s position. In 2018, it may mean reversing key decisions liberals hail as granting new rights.”
