The Left can’t stand the number of Supreme Court cases decided in favor of conservatives. Now they want to take the entire Court down.

And Democrats shot Clarence Thomas a terrifying threat that will end the Supreme Court.

Democrats resumed calls this week to load the Supreme Court with liberals after the court’s conservative majority ruled incorrectly in multiple cases, according to liberals.

On Thursday and Friday, the Supreme Court issued three decisions in a variety of widely anticipated cases. The court overturned Harvard and the University of North Carolina’s race-based admissions processes, decided in favor of a Christian graphic designer who refused to create wedding websites for same-sex couples, and overturned President Biden’s student loan forgiveness program.

Democrats and liberals were outraged at the Supreme Court, with some pushing for the court’s bench to be expanded in order to dilute the conservative majority, which was cemented by former President Donald Trump’s three conservative choices.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) stated that adding more justices would not be a “extreme” step.

“Expanding the size of the Supreme Court isn’t extreme or unprecedented — but the opinions of this Court certainly are,” Schiff wrote in a tweet Friday.

In an email to Senate campaign supporters, Schiff reiterated his desire to load the court, but he changed the phrasing, calling it “unpacking” the court.

“We must unpack the court by expanding the number of justices on the court, instituting term limits, and enacting a code of ethics like every other federal court,” Schiff wrote to supporters, according to Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard.

“I’ve spent years talking about the need to expand, unstack, and reform the Supreme Court after Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell stacked it with partisans. This week we saw firsthand the consequences of its imbalance,” Schiff added in the email.

Schiff was recently censured in the House last month. The vote of censure accused Schiff of deceiving the American public about Trump’s alleged ties to Russia while leading the House Intelligence Committee’s investigations against the president.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) remarked on Sunday that packing the court should be considered.

“I think everything should be on the table,” Pressley said on MSNBC, responding to a question about whether she supports adding more justices.

The Supreme Court “has been emboldened in rolling back the hands of time, undermining and rolling back what should be fundamental civil human rights,” she added.

“So everything should be on the table: reform and expansion,” Pressley said.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has previously asked for the Supreme Court to be expanded, and on Sunday she called for the court’s power to be limited.

“The courts, if they were to proceed without any check on their power, without any balance on their power, then we will start to see an undemocratic and, frankly, dangerous authoritarian expansion of power in the Supreme Court,” Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday on CNN.

Some liberal professors have also asked for the court to be packed.

“Biden Won’t Pack the Supreme Court, and It’s Killing Democracy,” read the headline of a Friday Newsweek opinion article by David Faris, an associate professor of political science at Roosevelt University in the Chicago area.

“With or without Biden, court expansion must become a litmus test for any Democrat who wants to pursue federal office,” Faris wrote. “The alternative is to spend the next 15 Junes learning which part of American public life has been needlessly upended by corrupt, originalist fanatics, and which new ways the Supreme Court has made it easier for Republicans to gain and wield power.”

Meanwhile, most Americans oppose adding justices to the bench, despite the fact that most Democrats appear to favor a crowded court.

According to a survey conducted last year by the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports, approximately 55% of people oppose extending the Supreme Court to 13 justices, while 64% of Democrats support adding the extra four members.
