Are from Joe Biden reiterated his campaign pledge to nominations the first black woman to go to the Supreme Court, conservatives were engaged in a daily battle to determine who could make the most sexist, racist, and often offensive comments in response to this long overdue historical moment. Tucker Carlson obviously already a reliable the source of oral wastewater. Former vice president of Cato . Institute Ilya Shapiro told his followers in a tweet that has since been deleted: “Objectively, the best option for Biden is Sri Srinivasan, who is a solid professional and v smart. There are even identity politics benefits to being the first Asian American (Indian). But alas doesn’t fit the final interlacing hierarchy, so we’ll get fewer black women. ” Ted Cruz emphasize that, despite the long history of the Supreme Court being an exclusive club for white men, Biden’s pledge tells most Americans, “I don’t mind you guys. ” and somewhat “an insult to Black women”. Mississippi Republican Party Roger Wicker declare Biden’s final pick would be the “beneficiary” of affirmative action.
Obviously don’t want to be left out, Senator GOP John kennedy, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday, according to Politico: “No. 1, I want a nominee to know a law book from the J.Crew catalog. Second, I want a candidate who won’t try to rewrite the Constitution every Thursday to try. promote a ‘sober agenda.’
While conservatives, who will still control the Supreme Court regardless of who Biden chooses, are certainly concerned about the president nominating someone whose “agenda” has nothing to do with abolition of the right to vote, put children in prison for life without a chance to be pardonedand maybe destroy Roe v. Wade, that was the first part of Kennedy’s statement – the sentence that seemed to suggest that a Black woman would be so disqualified that she wouldn’t know the difference between a “law book” and a clothing catalog – that is obviously the most insulting.
Like his other Republicans, Kennedy doesn’t seem to have any problems with Trump pledging to nominate a woman to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2020 (Though he asked the last woman received the same nod, Amy Coney Barrett, “Who does the laundry in your house?“During her confirmation hearing.) Cruz actually called Barrett “a role model for little girls,” a hypocritical White House press secretary who was a little dazzled. Jen Psaki seized on Tuesday. “There is no outcry around that,” Psaki speak in her daily briefing with the press. “The president’s position is that after 230 years of the Supreme Court’s existence, not a single black woman serving on the Supreme Court is a failure in the process.”
And while conservatives behind the scenes argue that they only care about Biden nominating the most qualified person to the bench, it’s clear to anyone familiar with the modern Republican Party as well. there’s something else — some might even call it racist! —It’s happening here. As Atlantic‘S Adam Serwer Written on Wednesday: “These attacks are meant to reiterate the narrative that libertarians have elevated unqualified black Americans at the expense of others who actually deserved it, as a part of the backlash story, one that echoes past times in American history in which equal rights advocates are turning white conservatives into an oppressed class. Republicans likely won’t be able to block the nominee, but they can extract a political cost, boost their own voters and overshadow the historical significance of Biden’s choice by defining steer political conversation around the idea that another unchanging black person is getting other people’s free things at ‘cost’.
