The animosity aimed at this Court from both sides of the aisle and media is unprecedented.
Having said that, the attacks from the left and media have been relentless in trying to paint the current Court members as completely biased.
Justice Amy Coney Barrett addressed this during a recent appearance, stating that she is extremely worried the Court is now being perceived as partisan.
Do We Have a Fair Court?
I will be the first to admit that I have not been happy with every decision this Court has offered.
I have also stated many times over that I don’t necessarily need to be happy with the Court as long as the decision is fair.
I will also admit that I believe Trump’s appointees have made some decisions out of fear of backlash, but I have also stated that will pass over time.
This would be defined as a flawed court at times, but not partisan.
The current members of the Court do not get credit by the left when they cross over; the media simply ignores the headline.
Yet, when they offer a decision that is considered aligned with conservative values, they are called partisan hacks, which was Barret’s point.
While giving a lecture at the University of Louisville’s McConnell Center, Justice Barrett stated, “To say the court’s reasoning is flawed is different from saying the court is acting in a partisan manner.
“I think we need to evaluate what the court is doing on its own terms.”
I am already on record stating that I believe the current makeup of this Court is by far the fairest we have seen in a long time.
I stand by that assessment and believe it will be proven out over time, even if I do not like some recent decisions or decisions handed down in the future.
The simple truth is that none of us will ever be happy with EVERY decision, but we need to look at the body of work rather than overreacting to any single decision.
Give them time… that is all I am saying.
