One political commentator just made the argument that President Joe Biden essentially just gave the “okay” for leftists to continue targeting the U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative members.
Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo made this argument on Friday night during an appearance on the Fox News Channel’s Ingraham Angle.
“The dehumanization of the court as extremist or ‘extremist,’ as [Biden] says, ‘an out-of-control’ group of justices taking away your rights — this conveys a clear message to fringe elements of American society [that], mainly, it’s okay to target justices,” Arroyo said.
Arroyo, here, was commenting on the speech that Biden made on Friday as he signed an executive order looking to make it easier for women to obtain access to abortions.
“We cannot allow an out-of-control Supreme Court working in conjunction with extremist elements of the Republican Party to take away freedoms and our personal autonomy,” Biden said.
The president went on to call out conservative Supreme Court justices, including Justice Clarence Thomas, asking, “What century are they in?”
This all stems from the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that found in the Constitution a right to have an abortion. Considering that there is clearly no such right in the Constitution, the justices recently overturned Roe.
In doing so, the justices returned the abortion issue back to the states. Now, people have the right to determine whether abortion ought to be legal through their state legislatures. And, in over 20 states, it is clear that abortion will remain legal.
Still, the Democrats, including Biden, are now trying to use the overturning of Roe to attack Republicans, and Biden has not hesitated to directly target the Supreme Court. This is problematic because the justices have come under attack, physically, from extremists because of their decision to overturn Roe – there was even an assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
One would, thus, expect the U.S. president to cool the situation down before someone gets hurt. But, Biden, as you can see, has been doing the opposite.
“Conveys a clear message
“It’s no wonder the justices’ homes have now become protest magnets,” Arroyo said.
The question now will be whether Americans will hold Biden and the Democrats accountable at the ballot box. Arroyo opined: “People, no matter their political persuasion, they don’t like anarchy. They don’t want to see the disruption and destruction of American life in the name of politics.”
