The Biden Administration applauded the radicalism, calling it an exercise of free speech and they refused to condemn the leaker. The leftwing media, which is virtually the entire media, cheered the anonymous leaker as heroic. And virtually every elected Democrat in our federal government didn’t have a bad thing to say about the leaker, and indeed many seemed optimistic that their scheme might even succeed.
The Supreme Court had become as politicized as virtually every other public institution, and the security and integrity of the court have come under fire from all sides. Therefore, when the announcement was made that officials within the Supreme Court had launched an investigation into who leaked the documents, many welcomed the news, hoping that the leaker would be rooted out with order in the court restored.
On Wednesday, Joy Behar, co-host of The View, suggested that women in America should commence with a “sex strike” in retaliation for the Supreme Court decision. On Thursday as a follow-up to Behar’s suggestion, a Blue State Conservative/Trending Politics poll showed that 101% of American men strongly supported Behar’s commitment to refrain from sex.
Many people believe that the left has “something” on Justice Roberts. He’s certainly known for siding with the left when they need it most, so would it be so out of his character to help the left by leaking the document? Nobody would ever trace it back to him, and endless rumors about left-wing clerks would circle DC and beyond for decades.
This is how it works in American politics nowadays, which explains why the Democrats and their media ignored the violence. This also explains why they dismissed the break from institutional norms with the leak itself. But none of them tried to spin it in the opposite direction. None of them tried to pretend that the real threat was to abortion clinics. None of them except for CNN, which is why they are complete knuckleheads.
According to several accounts, the reason Alito was writing the majority opinion in the first place was because Chief Justice Roberts did not want to overturn Roe vs Wade completely and joined the three Leftist Justices’ dissent, and in the meantime, the Court’s integrity has been torched by some mediocre, self-serving, weak-minded traitor to all that’s American by nature.
Or they could go the spineless coward route and ensure that some semblance of Roe and Casey are preserved. Their original opinion won’t matter. They’ll be perceived as malleable to the wishes of the mob. It will ensure that leaks and intimidation become some of those norms and traditions that Roberts is so concerned about.
