TWEETSTORM: President Trump Accuses John Roberts of “Shotgun Blasts” in the Face of Conservatives
On June 18, 2020, President Donald Trump sharply criticized the U.S. Supreme Court for a number of its recent decisions that clashed with conservative interests.
He Tweeted, “These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!”
Trump is referring to a Supreme Court case where it was determined that a key provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 extends its protections to transgender individuals. In addition, Trump expressed frustration with the Court’s decision to keep President Barack Obama’s illegal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty in place.
These two cases marked significant reversals for social conservatives in the case of the former and immigration patriots who want to put the clamps on mass migration in the case of latter. Additionally, the Supreme Court did not even bother to take on cases dealing with Second Amendment items.
It’s time for conservatives to recognize that the courts will not always save them. That’s the nature of the political beast in times when the managerial Left has infected nearly every branch of the government.
This radical change in American politics will require conservatives to adapt. Namely, they will need to become more active in local and state level politics.
As far as federal politics is concerned, they will need to build strong political machines to ensure that principled candidates are elected, and most importantly, secure majorities in both chambers of Congress to allow conservative presidents to actually pass solid legislation and repeal bad legislation.
None on of this will come easy, conservatives must be ready to put in the work to make this a reality.
