The US Supreme Court has turned unmistakably Trumpian
More than the end of European Jewry, the Holocaust was the downfall of Western civilization and Christianity. The Second Vatican Council and the German People have tried to reverse that course. Not as a reaction to the Holocaust but to try and stop two millennia of European Jew-hatred.
The new anti-abortion law of Texas is not so much sexist as it is an assault on all rights of Americans as stipulated in their Constitution. (Not that the ultra-right-wing anti-vaxxers have started huge demonstrations against this encroachment on everyone’s constitutional rights. They are just misled fools made to parrot slogans from idiotic right-wing agitating politicians.)
The shameless Texan law found a way to circumvent its citizen’s basic rights. It does not ask the police or courts to violate them. That would have been unconstitutional. But it allows any mob or private citizens to ‘enforce’ this lynching of women and anyone who helps them. Yes, I use the word ‘lynching’ on purpose in this Southern State. Anyone’s guess why.
The Supreme Court was called to stop this travesty of justice and … it failed to do its duty. It finally showed what a Trump-appointed court looks like. His appointees swore to the House, at their confirmation hearings, that they would not reinvent justice. They would go by precedent. And … they lied. Not really a surprise. If you can lie about raping someone or being a fundamentalist extremist, you can lie about being a medieval reactionary.
Thank Heaven, we have a White House that will do its utmost to uphold the Constitution. The Attorney General has just initiated a route against this dangerous and embarrassing neglect by the highest court of the Land.
But, however the fate of this shameful law, we now have seen that the US Supreme Court has turned unmistakably Trumpian. It stands in the middle of Fifth Avenue, shoots somebody, and claims to be just. How horrifying!
But, it is doing justice to the zeitgeist.
