Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio program, LevinTV host Mark Levin called out Democratic senators for trashing the Senate hearings process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday.
"I'm watching these clowns, these fools from the Democrat side, go on and on about following judicial precedent. But if we follow judicial precedent, the Dred Scott decision would still be in place, upholding slavery. ... The Supreme Court has some good decisions; the Supreme Court has some bad decisions. It is the Constitution that must be complied with. And yet, when you get constitutionalists, people who believe in the text, and looking at original intent, they are attacked," Levin said.
Levin explained that in older times, even the most influential Supreme Court justices did not receive more than approximately three hours before the Senate, and before William O. Douglas, justice nominees did not appear before the Senate at all.
"The Supreme Court has become so powerful, so political, so activist, so in many ways post-constitutional, that these battles take place," he said.
"For the progressive statists, the Supreme Court is where the action is. Why is the Supreme Court where the action is? Because all they need is five members to dictate their agenda, and that's exactly what's going on."
