Radical Left Wants to ‘Pack’ or Even ‘Dissolve’ the Supreme Court

Dissolve or Pack the Supreme Court | First Liberty Insider

On March 4, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a unanimous ruling to keep former President Donald Trump on presidential primary ballots amid dozens of challenges in states seeking his removal.

On cue, the radical Left responded by renewing their long-standing calls to pack the nation’s highest court. Extreme judicial activist group Demand Justice posted “Expand the Court” on X the same day:

If court-packing wasn’t bad enough, others pitched an even more far-fetched idea. Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann said the Supreme Court “betrayed democracy” and should be “dissolved,” according to Fox News.

United for Democracy—another deceptively-name Left-wing group—said the Supreme Court’s decision demands “bold action” and that it’s “time for Congress to rein the Court.”

This is the pattern we’ve witnessed for years. Whenever court rulings don’t favor the far Left’s agenda, their supposed “solution” is to radically tilt the Court in their favor. It’s all about changing the rules, getting around decisions they don’t like, and grabbing more power.

The radical Left desperately wants to turn the U.S. Supreme Court into a rubber-stamp for its political agenda. And these attacks are coming from all sides.

“President Joe Biden openly threatened the Supreme Court justices in attendance at his 2024 State of the Union address for upholding the Constitution with their 2022 Dobbs v. Jackson decision,” The Federalist reported.

“When they aren’t busy trying to pack the bench with partisans, Democrats like Schumer and Biden are amplifying a sham ethical crisis, drummed up by blue politicians in Congress and the corporate media, in an attempt to discredit the court,” The Federalist added.

There are also growing calls for Justice Sonia Sotomayor to retire, presumably so President Biden can quickly replace her with a younger, very liberal justice. New York Magazine said the quiet part out loud recently. They made clear the partisan motives behind pushing Sotomayor to step aside ASAP:

“If she remains in her seat, the seat’s orientation will be determined by a race between how long she can remain on the job and how soon Democrats can regain simultaneous control of the presidency and the Senate, the former of which is likely to turn Republican next year and the latter of which is almost certain to.”

The all-out assault on the Supreme Court isn’t likely to stop anytime soon.

As First Liberty warned recently, radical groups are already spending big money trying to deceive Americans about the “need” to change the Supreme Court. They’re pouring in hundreds of thousands—potentially even millions—of dollars into this attempt at a Supreme Court Coup.

We’re only a few months away from the end of the Supreme Court’s term, which concludes in June. Don’t be surprised if court-packing and other radical proposals come roaring back when the Court releases opinions that don’t satisfy the far Left’s agenda.

Plus, with the 2024 Election looming, be ready for more attacks on the Court in the coming months. If things go their way at the ballot box and the balance of power in Congress shifts, the far Left and many politicians are ready to pounce.

2024 could be a turning point for the rule of law. The very future of the Supreme Court is at stake.

Don’t be fooled. Court-packing and other so-called “reforms” are not about “saving democracy” as many of these groups often claim. This is about some politicians—along with many of the country’s most radical groups—trying everything possible to wrest control and destroy the independence of our courts.
