Democrats have now targeted this Supreme Court Justice, demanding they retire for one shocking reason

The U.S. Supreme Court has long been a target of the radical Left.

And now they are even turning themselves on their own.

Because Democrats have now targeted this Supreme Court Justice, demanding they retire for one shocking reason.

Radical leftist Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor isn’t even 70 years old yet.

“Sonia Sotomayor Should Retire Now”

And yet the Democrats, pro-abortion lobby, and other radical leftists are demanding she retire right now.

They are making this demand in the hopes that Joe Biden will replace her with a younger, even more radical leftist Justice.

It seems the Left is worried that Joe Biden won’t be around after the November elections.

In fact, Josh Barro writing for The Atlantic recently announced that it is time for Sotomayor to retire in the interest of leftist ideology in a piece called simply “Sonia Sotomayor Should Retire Now.”

Reading Barro’s article begging Sotomayor to leave the Supreme Court, you can feel his irritation with her for not already voluntarily leaving the High Court.

“Justice Sonia Sotomayor will turn 70 in June. If she retires this year, President Joe Biden will nominate a young and reliably liberal judge to replace her. Republicans do not control the Senate floor and cannot force the seat to be held open like they did when Scalia died. Confirmation of the new justice will be a slam dunk, and liberals will have successfully shored up one of their seats on the Court—playing the kind of defense that is smart and prudent when your only hope of controlling the Court again relies on both the timing of the death or retirement of conservative judges and not losing your grip on the three seats you already hold.”

It seems Barro is really worried that Biden won’t be around after November, and that Democrats might not maintain control of the Senate this year. 

“But if Sotomayor does not retire this year, we don’t know when she will next be able to retire with a likely liberal replacement.  It’s possible that Democrats will retain the presidency and the Senate in this year’s elections, in which case the insurance created by a Sotomayor retirement won’t have been necessary. But if Democrats lose the presidency or the Senate this fall—or both—she’ll need to stay on the bench until the party once again controls them. That could be just a few years, or it could be longer. Democrats have previously had to wait as long as 14 years (1995 to 2009). In other words, if Sotomayor doesn’t retire this year, she’ll be making a bet that she will remain fit to serve until possibly age 78 or even 82 or 84—and she’ll be forcing the whole Democratic Party to make that high-stakes bet with her.”

A nightmare scenario 

Barro justifies his desperate retirement plea by warning of a leftist’s worst nightmare scenario — a 7-2 conservative court:

“If Democrats lose the bet, the Court’s 6–3 conservative majority will turn into a 7–2 majority at some point within the next decade. If they win the bet, what do they win? They win the opportunity to read dissents written by Sotomayor instead of some other liberal justice. This is obviously an insane trade. Democrats talk a lot about the importance of the Court and the damage that has been done since it has swung in a more conservative direction, most obviously including the end of constitutional protections for abortion rights. So why aren’t Democrats demanding Sotomayor’s retirement?”

That’s why Barro tells Sotomayor to get the hell off the Court now.

And its why other radical leftists are joining in.
