So now Donald Trump campaigns in 2024 as the Republican president who actually made good on his promise to end Roe v. Wade, which the @GOP will contrast against its messaing of a "do-nothing" Biden White House.— Max Burns (@themaxburns) May 3, 2022
We live in a republic, not a pure democracy.
I was thinking about this last night before going to bed. I went to sleep with a smile on my face.
1. Roe is likely being struck down by a 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court.
2. Democrats will try to “codify Roe” before the midterms, but will fail due to the Senate filibuster. Roe is going to get struck down because Democrats are just unable to compete with Republicans in rural states. Joe Manchin won’t go along with abolishing the filibuster.
3. Three of the five justices (Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett) who are voting to strike down Roe were appointed by Donald Trump who lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton, but who won via the Electoral College. The Supreme Court also chose to make George W. Bush president over Al Gore. The president is elected by electors who are chosen by the people of the states, not directly by the whole people.
4. By taking so many extreme stands on cultural issues to appease wealthy donors and coastal urbanite libtards, Democrats have narrowed their coalition and lost critical elections which has gradually reshaped the federal courts. The rural and White working class bias of the Senate and Electoral College is titling the system against the Democrats and it is getting worse. Even when Democrats win by a landslide like in the 2018 midterms, they don’t pick up enough Senate seats to pass the progressive agenda.
5. The demise of Roe is the beginning of the “democratic collapse” that has been the subject of so much discussion in recent months. This could be the beginning of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and America’s descent into “authoritarian” White Christian heteronormative patriarchy and nationalism.
The demise of Roe is the biggest victory ever for social conservatives in the culture war.
Note: Rod Dreher is so happy that he is on the verge of publicly repudiating himself for blocking me on Twitter and not voting for Trump in 2016.
