Jon Schweppe: Ketanji Brown Jackson Is a Trojan Horse for the Woke Left
From APP Director of Policy and Government Affairs Jon Schweppe’s op-ed in the New York Post:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) came out firing with a pretty simple question during Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing Tuesday: Why are all the woke activists on the left backing her?
“Every group that wants to pack the court, that believes the court is a bunch of right-wing nuts who are going to destroy America, that considers the Constitution ‘trash’ — all wanted you picked,” Graham said. “That is all I can say. That so many of these left-wing radical groups who would destroy the law as we know it . . . supported you is problematic for me.”
Graham makes a compelling point. Why would radical organizations like Demand Justice — the most influential group on the left fighting to pack the court, funded by Arabella Advisors, a massive progressive dark-money group, and the Open Society Policy Center, one of George Soros’ nonprofit advocacy arms — cheer Jackson’s nomination?
Why would leftist groups like American Atheists, the Human Rights Campaign, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, the National Education Association and the Southern Poverty Law Center push the White House to nominate Jackson and the Senate to confirm?
The answer is obvious. The left’s replacement for old reliable Justice Stephen Breyer is not going to be a modern Sandra Day O’Connor. Ketanji Brown Jackson is a woke Trojan horse, as the preponderance of evidence suggests.
