To at least one Democrat, the Supreme Court is illegitimate because it is seemingly haunted by “Ghosts of the confederacy”.
Rep. Hakeem Jefferies (D-N.Y.) sent out the following tweet on Tuesday:
The Supreme Court majority has zero legitimacy.— Hakeem Jeffries (@RepJeffries) February 8, 2022
Ghosts of the confederacy are alive and well.
In other words – the ghosts of other Democrats?
Ironically, the “confederate ghosts” are all Democrats. https://t.co/p0Jtz1eVDs— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) February 8, 2022
Jefferies’ cries of racism come after the Supreme Court put a stay on a lower court decision that blocked the state of Alabama from using its new congressional district map. It was not a final decision, but a stay to “allow this Court to decide the merits in an orderly fashion—after full briefing, oral argument, and our usual extensive internal deliberations —and ensure that we do not have to decide the merits on the emergency docket.”
It’s an interesting perspective to find justices that want to hold “extensive deliberations” on an issue to be “illegitimate.”
But if you can’t scream “racism” at everything you disagree with, you probably wouldn’t qualify as a good leftist.
