The New American ‘Justice’

Constitution,Justice,Law,Republicans

“… never in our lifetimes have sitting members of Congress attacked our justice system as they now are. Lawmakers had never mocked the idea of due process, called for the collective punishment of American citizens or declared that the burden of proof is on the accused.“—Tucker Carlson.

“… Elected officials have announced they no longer believe in our Western understanding of justice … We accuse you of a felony. Your job is to show you’re innocent. You’re a sex criminal, prove you’re not. …”

… Senate Republicans declared in effect that all allegations against Brett Kavanaugh must be heard no matter how frivolous or obviously fraudulent they are. We can’t control the Senate Republicans, obviously. They exist in their own world. But we can remind them what is at stake here.

… You wanted secure borders. You wanted an end to ObamaCare and you wanted non-crazy people on the Supreme Court of the United States.

You didn’t get the first two. You’re starting to realize you probably never will, because Republicans in the Senate don’t care enough to protect you.

Don’t feel too bad: They don’t care enough about Brett Kavanaugh or our Constitution to protect them, either.
