While there is increasingly less to burn to the ground, the Left took to Twitter to threaten chaos if a SCOTUS nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg is confirmed pre-election. Never mind accepting a constitutional process, threaten the rest of America.
Writer, commentator, professor, Emmy-nominated producer, and scholar of religions, Reza Aslan tweeted, “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.”
Dr. Jessie Christiansen, an Australian astrophysicist working at the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, exclaimed, “IF THEY RAM THROUGH AN APPOINTMENT IN THE NEXT TWO MONTHS I WILL RIOT.”
Does Christiansen have citizenship? If not, she has no place rioting against a country that has given her the privilege to work there.
Hollywood screenwriter Beau Willimon said, “We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.”
Aaron Gouveia, author of ‘Raising Boys to Be Good Men: A Parent’s Guide to Bringing Up Happy Sons in a World Filled with Toxic Masculinity’ tweeted, “Fuck no. Burn it all down.” Not sure if that aligns with his book?!
University of Waterloo Political Science Professor Emmett Macfarlane, who specializes in constitutional law, public policy & Canadian politics, tweeted, “Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS.”
Poor old RBG wasn’t spared by the Left either. One brave keyboard warrior wrote,
“fuck you Ruth Bader Ginsburg
fuck you for not retiring under Obama
fuck you for dying under Trump
You get the drift? All balance and just the right kind of stable minds who deserve to make decisions on behalf of others.
With an election most likely to head to the Supreme Court a 4-4 result could lead to a constitutional crisis.
It isn’t a formality. Republicans hold 53 Senate seats. It is unlikely that Trump hating Mitt Romney will vote for it. Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski has openly said she won’t vote pre-election.
As a confirmation process progresses we only imagine the Democrats will try to outdo the shameful mud slinging that descended on the Kavanaugh hearing.
