President Donald Trump said at a campaign rally on Thursday in Dallas, Texas, that Democrats and the left want to change the makeup of the United States Supreme Court to destroy the Constitution, Penny Starr at Breitbart reports.
“They want to install far left judges to shred the Constitution,” Trump said at the rally that attracted 20,000 people inside the America Airlines Center and thousands more outside the venue.
The 32-person list includes people working for groups like Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union.
The names on the list do not emphasize judicial experience — only eight of the 32 named have that experience, and only four are judges appointed by former president Barack Obama — facts that led Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director to the Judicial Crisis Network, to pen a commentary about how far left Democrats have lurched:
While President Trump’s list of Supreme Court nominees currently includes 24 individuals, of whom 23 are experienced federal or state judges, the extremists at Demand Justice have clearly taken a different tack. Their list — which they are lobbying Democratic candidates to adopt — is wholly consumed by far-left activism and identity politics.
They see the courts as their ticket to implementing their radical policy agenda, which includes gutting the First and Second Amendments, establishing a right to illegal immigration and abortion on demand straight through birth, and destroying our economy by imposing burdensome regulations on everyone from Main Street to Wall Street.
And the newly published list neatly lines up with their radical policy agenda. For every specific policy goal that the extreme left wants to implement, Demand Justice has provided a name — or two or three — of an ultra-liberal lawyer who has made that cause a focus of his or her activism.
President Trump says the “do-nothing Democrats” have “betrayed the country, radical Democrats want to destroy America as we know it” and “indoctrinate our children” to teach them that America is “sinful” nation. Democrats also want to “disarm” law-abiding citizens and install far-left judges to “shred our Constitution.” Democrats want to “tear down symbols of faith” from the public square and use the government to “muzzle” and “shut down” conservative voices.” If Democrats didn’t hate the country, they wouldn’t be doing this.
