Supreme Court

The GOP is putting up a surprisingly stiff fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, but that won’t save us from absurdities to come. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would vote against her, but she’ll still be confirmed by the Democrat majority. President Biden nominated her so she could be the first black woman on the Court, but she couldn’t define what a “woman” is.

One may pretend this is just word games.

However, the Supreme Court must define groups because the government treats them differently. It pays to be a member of certain groups.

Judge Jackson said she wouldn’t answer hypothetical questions, but Senator Cruz brought asked about “standing.” If America is to have an official caste system, people will call themselves members of preferred groups. Why shouldn’t they? Because race and sex are objective realities, not fantasies. Our rulers and their system must reckon with this contradiction.

Republican opposition to the judge was enough to get #GOPRacists trending.

“The grilling she [Jackson] has experienced is a reminder that Black Americans are seen and often judged through a different lens than White Americans,” said the Washington Post, “and that they also have life experiences that White Americans do not share.” Wouldn’t that mean it’s hard for them to live together? It certainly makes political debate difficult. Questioning a leftist black woman is apparently blasphemy.
