Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came to Washington with the intention of changing America into a socialist nation.
But Ocasio-Cortez got some bad news.
And Clarence Thomas just destroyed one of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s biggest dreams.
In a speech in Salt Lake City, Utah, Clarence Thomas became the latest Supreme Court Justice to smack down Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the radical Left over the idea of Court-packing.
Thomas explained that if Democrats succeed in packing the Supreme Court to give themselves a permanent majority, it will destroy the credibility of the institution.
“You can cavalierly talk about packing or stacking the Court. You can cavalierly talk about doing this or doing that. At some point the institution is going to be compromised,” Thomas stated.
Thomas added that society cannot function if the public does not believe institutions like the Supreme Court are on the level.
“By doing this, you continue to chip away at the respect of the institutions that the next generation is going to need if they’re going to have civil society,” Thomas added.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the loudest voices on the Left for packing the Supreme Court.
Last year, Ocasio-Cortez told Fox News she supported legislation to pack the Supreme Court and seize a left-wing majority that will last forever.
“I do I think that we should be expanding the Court,” Ocasio-Cortez told Fox News.
Ocasio-Cortez claimed Democrats needed to pack the Supreme Court because Amy Coney Barrett replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave conservatives a six to three majority, which meant Democrats were going to come out on the losing end of most major cases.
“How much does the current structure benefit us?” Ocasio-Cortez stated. “And I don’t think it does.”
Democrats treat the Supreme Court the same way they do elections.
If Democrats don’t win, they say the result is illegitimate.
Democrats objected to Republican Presidential wins in 2000, 2004, and 2016.
Not only that, but Joe Biden also preemptively stated that the 2022 Midterms were not legitimate elections because Republicans filibustered legislation allowing Democrats to rig the system.
Now Democrats view the Supreme Court the same way.
Since leftists do not control the Supreme Court, the Court’s decisions are illegitimate, and the only way to supposedly restore “legitimacy” to the Court is for Democrats to add as many as six new left-wing Justices.
But as Clarence Thomas laid out, that is a recipe for wiping out faith in the Supreme Court as well as the ability of society to function.
