• The Reaction: Dems, Leftists React Vengefully to Coney Barrett’s Confirmation

    Surge Summary: The vicious reaction of Democrats and Leftists to the confirmation of new Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett confirms the dire division that is currently shaking America. And augers grimly for what the future holds politically for the nation.

    The left suffered a big defeat [Monday] night, and they know it.  There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth on social media.

    Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer denounced Barrett’s confirmation as “one of the darkest days in the Senate’s 231-year history.”  Mazie Hirono wasn’t content to simply vote “No” on Barrett’s confirmation.  She yelled “Hell No!”

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatened to pack the Supreme Court, and even suggested expanding the number of lower court judges, giving “President Biden” the opportunity to appoint hundreds of new judges.

    Joe Biden suggested rotating justices off the Supreme Court and onto other courts so someone else could be elevated to fill their seats.

    Sen. Chris Coons, who is actually the co-chair of the National Prayer Breakfast, said it was “chilling” that Barrett was sworn in by Clarence Thomas.  He implied that Barrett and Gorsuch were illegitimate justices occupying “stolen seats.”

    But he didn’t stop there.  Responding to Rachel Maddow’s call for “retribution,” Coons said there were “hundreds” of “too unqualified, too far-right” judges “to be allowed to sit peaceably.”  Even Sen. Coons fears the left-wing of his party.

    Socialist Squad members AOC, Omar and Tlaib all tweeted demands to “expand the court.”

    This movement would be difficult for a strong centrist Democrat president to resist.  But it will have no problem pushing Joe Biden aside.  In fact, progressives are confident he won’t stand in their way.  (Herehere and here.)
