Sen. Tim Kaine: “Alito and Thomas have brazenly destroyed this bedrock principle [of judicial fairness]”

If Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, etc. had been on the Court 70 years ago, can you even imagine them issuing the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling???

Sen. Tim Kaine is absolutely right about this:

“A judge is supposed to act in a way that enables all parties and lawyers appearing before the Court to believe they will be treated fairly. Alito and Thomas have brazenly destroyed this bedrock principle.”

Of course, it’s not just Alito and Thomas, it’s also the fact that Mitch McConnell literally STOLE A SUPREME COURT SEAT (from President Barack Obama in the spring/summer of 2016 – for absolutely no legitimate reason). At this point, the US Supreme Court – one of the key pillars of our democracy, at least in theory – is increasingly a grave THREAT to that democracy, to the rule of law and to the constitution. In Alito’s and Thomas’ cases, they are both far right themselves, of course, but they both just *happen* to be married to women who are “Stop-the-Steal”/insurrectionist nutjobs. So obviously, they have ZERO business being on the Supreme Court – or ANY court.

Meanwhile, WTF is wrong with Democrats (Sen. Tim Kaine excluded)? Why are they not ALL going apeshit about Alito right now? Why is the US Senate not investigating Alito and Thomas? Where are all the other elected officials about this right-wing-partisan-political-hacks-in-robes Supreme Court??? (I’ll add more statements if/when I see them, but for now, I’m only seeing Kaine’s from the Virginia delegation – not even counting Trump Cult Republicans, who obviously are fine with destroying our democracy).

P.S. It’s even more disturbing to observe this horrible Supreme Court, given that 70 years ago, a different (and FAR better!) court issued the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling, striking down racist segregation in schools. Can you even imagine today’s Court doing that???
