Stacking the Supreme Court

Post by Presto Kensho »

If someone truly fascist were to become president of the United States and wanted to roll back every civil rights law ever passed, all he or she would have to do is pack the Supreme Court, and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would have set that precedent. It's dangerous that Biden and Harris refuse to give a straight answer on such a basic question as to whether or not they will stack the Supreme Court, and the NAACP and other civil rights organizations should press them to give a straight answer. Speaking truth to power shouldn't end just because a Democrat gets elected.

Also, if Democrats were to abolish the filibuster, that could also enable a future despotic president to roll back every civil rights law ever passed.
