(PatrioticPost.com)- Alan Dershowitz, the legendary constitutional lawyer and Harvard Law Professor, lashed out at Democrats over the weekend for their shameless efforts to push Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire from the bench and allow President Joe Biden to replace him with a young social justice warrior judge.
On Sunday, Dershowitz said that Democrats attempting to force the left-leaning Supreme Court Justice to leave the bench was a case of age discrimination as well as an effort to politicize the Supreme Court.
He said that the efforts were not only wrong, but that they will eventually backfire on the Democrats.
And it already is.
After far-left New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that she was “inclined to say yes” to the question of whether she supports calls for Breyer to resign, a slew of left-wing writers came out in defense of the left-wing judge. Slate published a piece by Dahlia Lithwick titled, “Stop Telling Justice Breyer to Retire.” Lithwick argued that it’s counterproductive and “misses the point.”
The point being that the Democrats intend to pack the Supreme Court regardless…
Dershowitz explained how there are many on the hard left, including many academics, who want to force Breyer off the court and turn the bench into a “political institution” that is loaded with people who support their political goals.
The problem, of course, is that the Supreme Court is not meant to be political and is intended to be a court that hears cases based on what the United States Constitution says.
Dershowitz said that the push to make Breyer resign is an effort to give Biden a chance to nominate a new justice while the Democrats still hold a majority in the Senate. If he were to resign before the 2022 midterms, Biden would be able to nominate and appoint a new justice with the support of the Senate – but if he were to wait any longer, they would risk a Republican-controlled Senate that wouldn’t confirm a far-left nominee with green hair and made-up pronouns.
He also predicted that Breyer is likely to stay on the Supreme Court for as long as his health allows him.
Good for him!
