Harry Reid: We’re not gonna let “five white men” have the last word on Hobby Lobby
Hotair ^ | 07/09/2014 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 07/09/2014 9:06:17 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Have we reached Peak Reid Demagoguery yet? I thought we had yesterday when Democrats signed onto Harry Reid’s Kochsteria strategy for the 2014 midterms, but we actually missed the new nadir for America’s top-ranked demagogue — but our good friend Larry O’Connor at the Free Beacon didn’t. Yesterday, when addressing the media about the Democratic strategy to undo Hobby Lobby, Reid insisted that the Senate wouldn’t let “five white men” have the last word on contraception mandates.

Um …

“The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determine by virtue of five white men,” Reid said. “This Hobby Lobby decision is outrageous and we are going to do something about it. People are going to have to walk down here and vote.”

Someone‘s confused, and I’m pretty sure it isn’t this man, one of the five in the majority on the Hobby Lobby decision:

thomas-large

What, exactly, did race have to do with this anyway? It was a gratuitous swipe, a reflex reaction by a man so consumed by poisonous demagoguery and “vilification” that he seems to have become demented by it. It exposes just how dishonest and ignorant Reid has become during his long tenure in the US Senate.

So, the Supreme Court is not going to have the last say? We’re in so much more trouble than I every imagined.

I would LOVE to see those “five white men” on the SCOTUS publicly call out this insufferable piece of crap from Nevada for his remarks.

Call a press conference, and demand a public apology from Reid for his racist remarks.

Reid's handlers apparently get his talking points from Twitter, where leftists were quick to make this mistaken assumption.

Not stupid at all. This is a calculated, focus group tested strategy to turn out their unmarried women, black, Mexican etc. voters in the November elections.

He’s not stupid. This is about stampeding the gullable, and their checkbooks, into the Democratic Party and Proglodyte Movement.

There were several articles this morning about how homosexual orgs ate dropping their support for ENDA. Even the one in the WaPo made no bones about how closely extreme rhetoric on stuff like this is tied to fundraising.

And the Dems are going to have a tough year fundraising. So they really need to stoke their own extremists with this kind of hyperbolic rhetoric.

So a worthless half-breed with less than 7% African blood in him is “black,” but a conservative SCOTUS Justice who is most likely 100% African, is “white.” Reid needs a rubber room!

Would love to hear from Justice Thomas on Harry Reid calling him white.

But more importantly I got a deal proposal for Monsieur Reid:

We’ll give up the 5 ‘whites’ (Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas) to invalidate Hobby Lobby for the 5 ‘whites’ to invalidate PPACA (Roberts, Sotomayor, Breyer, Ginsberg, Kagan).

So there you have it: No Hobby Lobby and No PPACA.

Of course Hobby Lobby won’t argue with this proposal if PPACA goes away, will they? heheh

So, why did the opinions of just five people allow the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010” stand as “Constitutional”?

Part of the contract, Harry, is accepting that sometimes, the other side does have a perfectly satisfactory resolution to the problem.

Or all the decisions made only to be done one way, and only to the favor of the side of “progressives”?

Dingy obviously thinks he can make hay out of this artificial issue. How many Senate Democrats already at risk of losing this Fall crave a chance to vote against religious liberty and for more anti-employer coercion?

If the Supreme Court has ruled it a violation of constitutional rights to force religiously-opposed employers to pay for abortion-inducing drugs, how can the Senate change that fact by passing a new law?

The Dems hope this fires up their uninformed nut-brigade, but know this bill will die.

Actually the result (at least in any forseeable realistic circumstance) of the 2014 Senate election is irrelevant. We could impeach Obama now - that only requires a majority vote in the House. We cannot currently remove him from office, and that almost certainly will not change after the election. A 2/3 majority of the Senate is required for conviction in an impeachment case. There’s no reasonable scenario where the Senate split will be 67-33 in favor of Republicans after the election.

Reid understands the majority of today's electorate.

The opening to actually dare and ridicule the democrats is huge, but Republicans are too worried about losing lobbying power and what "rocking the boat" would do to their bottom line.
