Quote: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.
I do not think he mentioned it specifically, but interracial marriage hangs on the same legal theories that support the others. It is self interest at its finest. Honestly, interracial marriage, by polling, is still not popular in some Southern States. So, who knows.
I think birth control is more likely to have test cases floated by conservative groups to get to SCOTUS to do something about it. If nobody challenges for harm than they could just piece meal it by taking away the ones indicated and not the ones that they do not want to do so.
Regulating birth control, gay marriage and things like type of sex in the bed room are all thing conservative groups will gladly attack and seem to undo.
Also while chipping away the Establishment Cause and the power of the other branches of government and diminishing legal rights of minority groups. Among other things.
Quote: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.
This is a bit hostile for me but I think the sentiment is probably correct.
I think mobilizing and so on at this point is tricky to do in ways that traditionally should work though. Gerrymandering, laws to reduce voting rights, rework other laws to maintain power...
Honestly the conservative movement has a nearly perfect system in place to truly become authoritarian in a selectively Constitutional way. Not making it facist exactly, but basically being facist. And we are seeing that or the desire to get to that. I do not like saying that but it seems to be clearer and clearer that is the goal.
And the solutions are harder and harder to really figure out with the systems in place right now. As it is not likely that even the means of redress will still be there in two years or five. Democracy may be long dead in the US at that point.
And I wish that was an exaggeration but it is very much possible.
Look Raist bunnies...
