Commentator Keith Olbermann, angry and crazed as ever, took to Twitter to slam the Supreme Courthttps://www.washingtonexaminer.com/tag/supreme-court after it struck down a New York gun control law. Olbermann wrote, "It has become necessary to dissolve the Supreme Court of the United States. The first step is for a state the 'court' has now forced guns upon, to ignore this ruling.” He added, “Great. You're a court? Why and how do think you can enforce your rulings?"
A far better question would be, “Great, Keith, you’re a former sportscaster? Why and how do you think you can enforce your decrees?”
My guess is that Olbermann thinks we need to dissolve the Supreme Court in order to “save our democracy,” a phrase people who want to dissolve our democracy often use.
Yes, let’s do away with the Court, the filibuster, the electoral college, the Constitution, and the First & Second (and maybe a couple of other) Amendments. If we eliminate all the institutions that were specifically put in place to protect people’s rights, we would be much better off. We must save our democracy by eliminating it!
In fairness, I’m sure that Mr. Olbermann’s plan would be far superior to what the Founders wrought! I’m certain he is far more schooled in world history, economics, civil law—and, of course, systems of government-- than they were.
The Supreme Court has issued countless decisions over the years that have been anathema to conservatives, yet conservatives have never called for packing the court or dissolving it. Or burning it down, for that matter.
Who are the real enemies of democracy, the actual tyrants?
Keith, what do you think about the Senate? Perspiring minds want to know.
