Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Says Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Will Bring Back Slavery

On Friday morning, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, would bring back slavery if he is confirmed to the nation's highest court.
"Let me say a word about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court," Clinton told the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) at its national convention. "This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, womens rights including those to make our own health decisions."
"It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of the Court for decades and to reverse decades of progress," the former Democratic presidential nominee declared.
Then came the kicker: "I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s."
Clinton was clearly suggesting that Trump and Kavanaugh want to return to the days when slavery was legal in the South. The irony is, originalist Supreme Court justices like Kavanaugh would have agreed with Abraham Lincoln against the South, especially on the issue of slavery.
The American Civil War started in 1861, after a tense decade of increasing hostility between Southern Democrats who wanted to extend slavery beyond its boundaries as established by constitutional laws and Northern Republicans who saw slavery as evil and wanted to keep it within those limits. Republican Abraham Lincoln campaigned on restraining the evil institution, but an activist Supreme Court ruled that slavery could extend into the territories.
Ironically, another Republican president wants to restrain another activist Supreme Court, and Democrat Hillary Clinton is scaremongering....

Shed’s tired, sick, stupid, mentally impaired, and yet he’s addicted to politics.
She needs to retire to the countryside and find a good therapist.
That’s the first thing I thought.
Cause it makes perfect sense if you really think it through.
and you lost so ITS ALL your fault that the country will fall into a cesspool of conservatism :)
I wonder how many slaves were transported illegally across our borders when Obama chose to catch and release.
I have a morbid curiosity about whether she is that inept as a political hack, or is that deranged.
Does she even listen to the stupid that erupts from her maw?
Gawd- shes not only evil and greedy, shes stark raving crazy too.
I don’t know, but the Obamunists and EUniks brought open slave markets back to Tripoli.
“”I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s.”
I don’t think Republicans want to re-enact Democrat laws and policies
Why is she not in jail?
That's it, Hillary. Let the hate flow through you...
Good grief. Could this woman be more out of touch with reality?
Clinical delusion bordering on insanity and being an alcoholic washed-up two-time loser is a nasty combo.
....if a dog acted like she does, they put it down...
Everyone has been fawning over her for so long.
I don’t know if it was due to fear or genuine admiration but by now she’s probably delusional enough to believe even her shit is 14 carat gold.
She probably thinks everything that she utters is pure genius.
I think I can speak for many when I say I would like to see Harridan Hillary Clunton in chains.
