Actress Alyssa Milano is known as an outspoken liberal activist. It's no secret and she doesn't try to hide her political affiliation.
After the Senate confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday, Milano took to Twitter to express herself. Prepare yourself. It's a bit much (as with all of her typical liberal meltdowns).
My thoughts on this sad day for America (a thread):— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
Right-wing & corporate special interests selected this nominee and propped up his nomination with tens of millions of dollars in dark money.
We need to prioritize protecting our courts, which starts with retaking the Senate.
When she says "dark money," she's probably referring to the National Rifle Association. After all, the NRA supported Kavanaugh since day one and Milano is an outspoken gun control proponent.
They picked Kavanaugh because they know he is a reliable vote; he is a lifelong foot soldier for these interests, a political operative who became one of the most partisan ideological judges in the country.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
If she believes Kavanaugh is a partisan judge then what does she consider Ruth Bader Ginsburg? A saint?
That they supported Kavanaugh despite his obvious and disqualifying flaws - temperament, dishonesty, rabid partisanship, credible accusations of sexual assault - speaks to how beholden they are to these special interest powers, and how critical the Court is in their plan.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
"Credibility" is in the eye of the beholder. Milano must have missed the glaring inconsistencies in Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's statements.
What’s happened today is the culmination of a 30+ year plan to capture the federal judiciary and use our courts to line their pockets and suppress the will of the people.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
Actually, conservatives aren't trying to aline anyone's pockets. We're trying to protect our freedoms and the Constitution. You know, the very thing that people like Milano are working so hard to get rid of.
The Roberts Court was already incredibly partisan. It’s the most pro-corporate, right-wing Supreme Court in history, handing down over 70 partisan 5-4 decisions in the last decade.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
Translation: I'm upset that the Court didn't agree with my side! BANISH THEM ALL!
Kavanaugh moves it much, much further to the right. It has completely lost touch with the values of majority of Americans. And now its legitimacy is shot.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
If the Supreme Court lost touch with the majority of Americans then President Donald Trump wouldn't be in office and guess what? Hillary Clinton would be the one in the White House appointing a new justice. Oh, wait...
THE SENATE IS VITAL. We are focused on the House, and rightly so. But only the senate votes on judges - that goes for lower courts too. So if they keep the senate, even if we win the house, McConnell’s judge machine keeps on cranking.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
"Judge machine?" Seriously?
Here's a news flash: if McConnell was hell-bent on packing the court with conservative justices then he would work to raise the number of justices that sit on the Supreme Court, but he's not. He's working within the tradition of having nine justices on the Court (although it has varied slightly over time).
Kavanaugh is the 69th judge trump has confirmed. That’s an absolutely insane number. This is all happening quietly and no one is realizing it.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
We’ve all seen how important the courts have been in stopping trump’s most hateful and harmful policies.
Actually, if you do a simple Google search, it's easy to see that there are plenty of leftist mainstream media outlets who are covering Trump's appellate court confirmations. The Washington Post. Rolling Stone. The Guardian. The Boston Globe.
Nothing is happening under any of our noses. And Trump isn't hiding it. Whether or not someone pays attention to politics is their choice.
They won’t be able to provide that check if we let them capture the courts. This goes far beyond the Supreme Court.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
Kavanaugh made big news, but stacking our lower courts with fringe right operatives has been Mitch McConnell’s absolute #1 priority since trump’s election.
Apparently upholding the Constitution and our God-given rights is now "fringe" and that makes a judge an "operative." Got it.
In conclusion:— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
People should be f-ing terrified and outraged. I sure as hell am.
We need to take back our power by taking back the Senate and the House in November. It is the only way out of this mess.
How many more days until the November election? How many more days do we have to listen to this "Trump is pushing America to extinction" narrative that blue check mark liberals are pushing?
It's okay, Alyssa. Take a chill pill. Conservatives had to deal with Obama for eight years. Now it's your turn.
