Yeah, I know, I shouldn’t expect logical thinking from Jesse Jackson. But does he think nearly everyone will overlook the inconsistency?
This new right-wing judicial activism is yoked to the extreme right causes of the National Rifle Association, the anti-choice lobby and the corporate boardrooms. They are prepared to trample the laws enacted by democratically elected legislatures to implant their policies from the bench. The U.S. courts are now packed with these ideologues. And the decision last week shows that the civilizing advances of recent decades — in civil rights, gun control, workers’ rights, women’s rights — are now at risk from this marauding horde.
He is in favor of (some) civil rights, workers’ rights, and women’s rights, but not 2nd Amendment rights. And that is the only one of his enumerated set that is clearly and explicitly guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. He’s got mental problems.
