Quote:Thomas makes an extension that birth control, gay marriage and so on should be reconsidered as well as they were demonstrably erroneous rulings.
Don't forget mixed race marriage rulings which, as we all know, he won't touch.
Quote:So, no reason to think the hits will not keep coming on this front.
Quote:It is just some gymnastics being done to justify some positions and not others. For that matter all of this undermines the courts legitimacy.
Quote:Sure, the court should overrule bad decisions, but I think it is clear this court does not understand what that means as it ignores numerous rulings before it. As it clearly understands the Constitution better than any other court that has ever been.
Perhaps not Thomas himself, but his statement has surely open Pandora’s Box to interracial marriage, and given the numerous instances of not-so-subtle racism seen on the right in recent years, it’s hard to trust that a right-leaning SCOTUS won’t revisit interracial marriage in the future.
To be blunt, the left needs to stop being pansies and start arming themselves, because at some point the diarrhea is gonna hit the fan.
