Amy Coney Barrett believes in originalism when it comes to deciding cases before the Supreme Court. In other words, she decides cases based on what the law says and what the words meant when the law was written.

Democratic Senator Ed Markey, suggests her entire approach is racist, which means he thinks she is a racist. Here is what Markey said:

“Originalism is racist. Originalism is sexist. Originalism is homophobic. Originalism is just a fancy word for discrimination.”

Republican Senator Mike Lee fired back:

“Of all the irresponsible and inflammatory statements I’ve heard over the last few weeks, and I’ve heard some doozies, this might well be the worst. If you think about what he is really saying there, Sen. Markey has essentially said that our Constitution is racist. And [that] an effort to understand it, understand its words at the time they were written, is itself racist and bigoted. I can’t think of a statement that has a greater tendency to undermine the foundation of our constitutional republic. I hope, expect, and demand that Sen. Markey retract his statement. It is irresponsible; he can’t defend that.”

I think conservative talk show host, Larry Elder, had the best retort:

“Where, but America, can a female Supreme Court justice, with 2 black kids, get sworn in by a black Supreme Court justice only to have democrats pronounce her…”racist”?!?

It shouldn’t be necessary to say this, but Larry Elder is black; Ed Markey is white.

    I laugh at their rhetoric because they just don’t know how else to repudiate our President. If, as he claims, she is a racist. If so, then Trump must also be a racist by nominating a so called racist to such a distinguished position. You can sense how angry they are, by their inflammatory remarks.

      Their comments are nonsense, of course. Our country should be honored to have a talent such as Ms. Barrett sitting on our court. Thanks for writing, always great to hear from you, Johnny.

    I’m praying every day that God saves our Democratic Republic by giving a WIN to all Conservatives in the upcoming election.
    Please get to the polls in droves to save the babies, MAGA and keep our police funded.
