So John Cornyn is calling for all those to be overturned.  Got it.

A republican calling for a return to jim Crow laws and separate and unequal education is the republican party platform

This is the kind of weak-ass shiat you have to report to when the TX GOP boos you off the stage for daring to support the most basic gun safety legislation imaginable.

eurotrader: A republican calling for a return to jim Crow laws and separate and unequal education is the republican party platform


Yeah, why is this even worthy of comment?  They've been working toward that for a while now.

It was abortion first, they have the churches behind them and it's been a battleground for decades.  Now it'll be gay rights and contraception, Thomas made that clear.  Next, racial equality.

This should be no surprise to anyone.

And the Democratic Party will do abso-f*cking-lutely nothing.

Because the argument is technically correct. Precedent is struck down from time to time.

HOWEVER... I could be wrong here, but precedent is usually struck down to free people, not subjugate them.

So, as usual, they are technically correct, for the worst reasons and they are still assholes.

Did this farker actually just call for a reversal of Brown v Board? What the fark? That's not even hidden racism. That's just straight up farking pure racism. Like the kind of racism Tucker melts down on a spoon and boots up before walking on set.
farking fascist shiatstains. fark Republicans. If he isn't immediately condemned by his own party... fark it he won't be. fark

This is our lives now.
Racist Trump let all the racist cockroaches crawl out of the woodwork (including Congressmen).
Now that his Supreme Court is carrying out his agenda things are just gonna get worse.

It wouldn't be a day ending in "-y" if a Rich Old Republican didn't try Whitesplaining history to Black America.

Drunk racist tweeting should be enough to be kicked off committees and censored, right?


right?
 
2022-06-25 7:20:12 PM  
I wonder how many people it takes reporting this as racist hate speech for Twitter to at least bounce the tweet if not the distinguished gentleman from Texas altogether.

I would say six but with the caveat that John Roberts will be ringing his hands with worry when he drops the axe.

You do see that POP just after Republicans get their victory.  I remember it from the days just after Trump was elected.  Suddenly, the was vicious bile spewing from rabid mouths everywhere.

They are feeling cocky and invincible and they are going to start spouting off about all their wet dreams.  It is scary and disgusting and hopefully it turns more than a few "undecideds" off.

Well, five and three-fifths.
 
2022-06-25 7:27:05 PM  
Oh for crying out loud, here we go again with mischaracterizing what someone says just because he's a Republican.

For those of you who don't know, Plessy v Ferguson has already been overturned and it was done in Brown v Board of Education!

What Cornyn is doing is he is saying that people who think overturning 50 year old precedent is bad should be careful because Brown overturned the 50 year old predecent of Plessy!

DON'T LIE ABOUT WHAT REPUBLICANS SAY!  IT JUST MAKES YOU AS BAD AS THEM!
 
2022-06-25 7:27:10 PM  
He's still gross for taunting the first black President with Plessy and Brown, but he's referring to Brown overturning Plessy. Not that he wants SCOTUS to overturn Brown.

And now I need to take a shower.

NewportBarGuy: HOWEVER... I could be wrong here, but precedent is usually struck down to free people, not subjugate them.


The SC is composed of a bunch of originalists. Originally, only white male landowners had rights. So they are just restoring the country to its original greatness. Certain people should have never had these rights in the first place. So no harm done.

Oh I got what he was saying, as well as how fu king gone deaf it is to sent to the only black president this country will have.

That's how I read it, and I was like "Obama can't do that."

I expected him to say something like "Roe v Wade was just a clump of words anyway and the Court can do whatever it wants with its own body of law"

Fair enough, as far as it goes. But the salient point is that in the past, the Court has reversed precedent to expand individual rights. Here, the Court reversed precedent to limit individual rights. Any comparison of this decision to previous reversals of precedent that fails to note that crucial detail is disingenuous.
 
2022-06-25 7:33:41 PM  
He thinks he's being clever by pointing out that sometimes it's good for the SC to undo bad laws in order to right a wrong. In other words, he thinks Roe v. Wade was bad law and overturning it was good, just like with Brown vs the Board of Education of Topeka. Of course this is somewhat of a false equivalency, but he's trying to imply that we're all racists is we don't see it his way.
 
2022-06-25 7:34:00 PM  
I am of the Caucasian persuasion and I don't for a second believe that makes me inherently superior, by any measure, to someone who is not.

Therefore any socio-political system that puts "other people" separate from "my people" to theoretically benefit me is inherently bogus and unethical.

Ergo, Sen. Cornyn is a jackass.

They need something for 2024. They'll start talking that after midterms.

So the correct response is "we know you want to overturn Lawrence v Texas which overturned Bowers V Hardwick so shut the fark up"

I guess Cornyn believes Plessy/Brown negatively affected someone's essential freedoms.  That dog hunts.

Not until Thomas is replaced with a white version of himself.
