Democrats were seething with rage over the Supreme Court.
Liberals abandoned all reason and began wildly lashing out.
And now Clarence Thomas humiliated Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with one simple fact.
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was among the many liberals losing their mind over the fact that the Supreme Court ended racial discrimination in college admissions.
The Supreme Court used the cases of Students for Fair Admissions v. Presidents and Fellows of Harvard College and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina to strike down affirmative action in colleges and universities delivering a death blow to the left’s woke identity politics agenda.
In his concurring opinion Justice Thomas made it clear that the Supreme Court believed the 14th Amendment meant what it said in that all Americans enjoy equal protection under the law.
“In the wake of the Civil War, the country focused its attention on restoring the Union and establishing the legal status of newly freed slaves. The Constitution was amended to abolish slavery and proclaim that all persons born in the United States are citizens, entitled to the privileges or immunities of citizenship and the equal protection of the laws. Because of the second founding, our Constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens,” Thomas wrote.
Colleges and universities can no longer discriminate against Asian and white students in favor of black and Hispanic applicants.
For all of the left’s talk about how America is an idea based on the Declaration of Independence proclaiming “all men are created equal,” liberals sure hated the fact that the conservative majority on the Supreme Court wants the country to live up to that ideal.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fumed on Twitter that if the Supreme Court was really serious about preferential treatment in admissions policies it would have also struck down legacy admissions, the policy whereby colleges grant special admission status to the children of alumni.
Of course, Ocasio-Cortez also boiled this down to race as her only opposition to legacy admissions is because 70 percent are white students.
“If SCOTUS was serious about their ludicrous ‘colorblindness’ claims, they would have abolished legacy admissions, aka affirmative action for the privileged. 70% of Harvard’s legacy applicants are white. SCOTUS didn’t touch that – which would have impacted them and their patrons,” Ocasio-Cortez posted on social media.
Ocasio-Cortez thought this was some 360-degree windmill dunk on Clarence Thomas and the conservatives on the Supreme Court.
But it wasn’t.
That’s because the Court can only resolve the question before them.
And no one brought a case about legacy admissions before the Supreme Court.
Ocasio-Cortez’s rage tweeting also exposed another fundamental truth about the left.
Liberals see the Supreme Court as an unelected policy board unbound by the Constitution.
Democrats believe the only constraint on the Court should be the limits of the imagination of liberal justices to invent new rights that never before existed in American history by falsely claiming the Constitution is a living document.
