Leftists’ ‘Troubled’ SCOTUS History Continues

The Same Extreme Left Wing Groups That Always Oppose Republican Supreme Court Picks Have Declared War On President Trump’s Yet-Unannounced Nominee, Declaring They ‘Will Be United In Opposition’


SEN. SCHUMER (D-NY): ‘It's Hard For Me To Imagine A Nominee… That We Could Support’

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): “It's hard for me to imagine a nominee [for the Supreme Court] that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we could support. So you're right.” RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC: “So you will do your best to hold the seat open.” SCHUMER: “Absolutely.” (The Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC, 1/3/2017)
THE LEFT ON JUSTICE STEVENS: ‘Extraordinary Lack Of Sensitivity To The Problems Women Face’

NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN ON STEVENS: ‘Grave Concern,’ ‘Extraordinary Lack Of Sensitivity To The Problems Women Face’

Margaret Drachsler, NOW: “I am here this afternoon to express my grave concern regarding both the nomination of John Paul Stevens to the Supreme Court and the manner in which it was accomplished.” (U.S. Judiciary Committee, Hearing, 12/8/1975)
THE LEFT ON JUSTICE KENNEDY: A ‘Troubling’ ‘Sexist’ ‘Unqualified To Sit On The High Court’
NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN ON KENNEDY: A ‘Sexist’ Who ‘Would Be A Disaster For Women’ “The National Organization for Women yesterday became the first major organization to oppose Supreme Court nominee Anthony M. Kennedy… and branded Kennedy a ‘sexist’ unqualified to sit on the high court. … NOW President Molly Yard told a news conference that Kennedy, a federal appeals court judge in Sacramento, ‘would be a disaster for women’ if confirmed as a justice.” (“NOW Opposes Kennedy For Supreme Court,” The Washington Post, 11/20/1987) PEOPLE FOR THE AMERICAN WAY ON KENNEDY: ‘Troubling’ “‘…troubling questions about Kennedy's position on civil rights and sex discrimination,’ said Ricki Seidman, legal director for People for the American Way.” (“A Product Of Two Sides Of Town,” LA Times, 12/14/1987) NAN ARON ON KENNEDY: ‘I Am Troubled’ “‘I am troubled by some of his opinions in the civil rights area,’ said Nan Aron of the Alliance for Justice.” (“Early Senate Reviews Indicate Confirmation Likely,” The Washington Post, 11/12/1987)
  • “After a careful review of Judge Kennedy's appellate opinions as well as speeches he has made over a period of several years, the Alliance is troubled by Judge Kennedy's lack of demonstrated commitment to equal access to the courts and equal justice. … Judge Kennedy's record on civil rights and discrimination issues is not reassuring…” (Alliance For Justice, Statement, Pg.773, 1987)
THE LEFT ON JUSTICE SOUTER: ‘Ample Reason To Fear’ This ‘Disturbing’ Nominee
NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN ON SOUTER: ‘Ample Reason To Fear,’ ‘Troubling’ NOW Legal Defense And Education Fund: “…we have ample reason to fear what his appointment would mean to the future of reproductive and other women's rights, civil rights and individual rights.” (U.S. Judiciary Committee, Hearing, Pg.572, 9/1990)
“The National Organization for Women plans to rally outside the Capitol -- just in case senators friendly to its cause might miss the point.” (“...And Strange Notions of Privacy,” The Washington Post, 9/14/1990) PEOPLE FOR THE AMERICAN WAY ON SOUTER: ‘Disturbing’ ARTHUR KROPP, President, People For the American Way: “What record Souter has compiled on constitutional questions is both sparse and disturbing. The views he has expressed on civil rights, sex discrimination, church/state separation, and reproductive freedom are reasons for very real concern.” (“Fans, Foes, In Betweens Speak Out On Souter,” USA Today, 9/13/1990) NAN ARON ON SOUTER: ‘Very Troubling Aspects Of His Legal Record’ “The director of the Washington-based Alliance, Nan Aron, said Souter's statements and opinions ‘threaten to undo the advances made by women, minorities, dissenters and other disadvantaged groups.’” (“The Souter Nomination,” St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 9/9/1990)
  • “‘We have to take each nominee as he comes, and our research points to some very troubling aspects of his legal record,’ Aron said.” (“Potential Souter Foes Haven't Made A Move Yet,” The Boston Globe, 8/22/1990)
“The alliance is convinced that Judge Souter will not protect the rights of those suffering discrimination on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or literacy.” (“Souter Nomination Opposed By Liberal Legal Affairs Group,” AP, 9/22/1990)
THE LEFT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S UNANNOUNCED NOMINEE: ‘Frightening,’ ‘Disastrous’ And A ‘Nightmare Scenario’
“Democrats Launch Scorched-Earth Strategy Against Trump: What began as a high-minded discussion about how to position the Democratic Party against President Donald Trump appears to be nearing its conclusion. The bulk of the party has settled on a scorched-earth, not-now-not-ever model of opposition. In legislative proposals, campaign promises, donor pitches and even in some Senate hearings, Democrats have opted for a hard-line, give-no-quarter posture, a reflection of a seething party base that will have it no other way. …teeth-baring, no-holds-barred opposition.” (“Democrats Launch Scorched-Earth Strategy Against Trump,” Politico, 1/26/2017) “The mobilization against Mr. Trump began even before his victory was official. At just after midnight on Election Day, panicked immigration rights activists gathered for a conference call to strategize. A few days later, more than 80 representatives of 57 progressive groups convened in the offices of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights in Washington. The mood was intense, angry and unforgiving, according to people who attended the confidential organizing session, which included representatives from labor, environmental groups, immigration activists, gay rights and civil rights organizations.” (“Obama May Jump Into Fray As Democrats Counter Trump,” The New York Times, 11/19/16)
  • “Those groups, led by the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, People for the American Way and the Alliance for Justice, have worked together on Supreme Court nominations since they helped to block conservative nominee Robert Bork in 1987.” (“Nomination Politics Begin For Sotomayor,” USA Today, 5/28/09)
  • “Liberal groups are preparing for war under Donald Trump. Top Democratic operatives are huddling this week in a series of meetings to strategize…” (“Liberal Groups Steel Themselves To Battle Trump,” Politico, 11/15/16)
“…the bitter 2016 battle for the White House is turning into a forever war with Hillary Clinton’s tormented team vowing a four-year insurgency against Donald Trump. … grief of Clinton’s loss has transmogrified into anger…” (“Clinton Allies Plot Anti-Trump Movement,” Politico, 12/3/16)
“Obama loyalists plot Trump resistance. Alumni of the Obama White House spent days mourning Trump's win. Now they're ready to fight. … In the past week, Obama alumni have planned gatherings at Glascott’s Saloon in Chicago (an old campaign haunt) and The Winslow in New York. In Washington, they’re meeting in hotel lobbies, 14th Street bars, nonprofits’ conference rooms and living rooms, plotting the resistance over beer and hummus.” (“Obama Loyalists Plot Trump Resistance,” Politico, 11/19/16) LEFTIST GROUP PEOPLE FOR THE AMERICAN WAY: “…a Supreme Court to which a President Trump is able to nominate even one or two new justices. …the consequences to all Americans would be disastrous. …all Americans must keep this nightmare scenario in mind as they head to the polls in November.” (“The Disastrous Consequences Of A Trump Supreme Court,” People For The American Way, 9/9/16)
RADICAL NAN ARON: “‘We are prepared to oppose every name on Trump’s list,’ Nan Aron, the president of the Alliance for Justice, one of the Democratic-leaning groups that has been planning for the court battle since Mr. Trump’s election. ‘The progressive, civil rights community will be united in opposition to either of those prospects or anyone else on the list.’” (“A Supreme Court Pick Is Promised. A Political Brawl Is Certain,” The New York Times, 1/25/17)
