Joe Biden nominated what appears to be a radical activist to the Supreme Court. Democrats are determined to quickly get Jackson onto the bench—and have been trying to pressure Republicans to comply.
But Republicans have a long memory and they refuse to let the left off the hook. Senator Ted Cruz reminded Democrats of how they treated conservative nominees to the court, even recently.
From PJ Media:
“It is only one side of the aisle that, with Justice Clarence Thomas, was so reprehensible that […] President George Herbert Walker Bush wrote at the time, quote, ‘what’s happening to Clarence Thomas is just plain horrible,’” Cruz continued…
Cruz wasn’t finished. He brought up the Kavanaugh hearings next, calling them “one of the lowest moments in the history of this committee, where Democrats on this committee sat on allegations… hid them and then leaked them against the wishes of the complainant.
Now, Democrats want an easy confirmation of Biden’s pick. The media is also complicit in this hypocrisy, treating Jackson much differently than they did of Amy Coney Barrett.
From Fox News:
After President Biden announced he was appointing Jackson to replace retiring Associate Justice Stephen Breyer, The New York Times editorial board called it a “cause for celebration”…
As for Barrett, the board lamented her “deeply conservative” views and that she had been “anointed” by the conservative Federalist Society.
And Sen. Blackburn brought up one of Jackson’s secret skeletons, that she “praised” the divisive 1619 Project.
