“We have to take very seriously the threat which an illegitimate, far-right Supreme Court poses to gun safety in our country”
U.S. Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) and several other Democrats spoke on Thursday morning about the recent shooting in Texas, and Markey made some shocking comments about the U.S. Supreme Court.
Markey makes the senior senator from Massachusetts seem intelligent by comparison.
Markey called the United States Supreme Court “illegitimate” and referred to the last three conservative seats as “stolen.”

Senate Democrat Rails Against ‘Illegitimate, Far-Right’ Supreme Court, Calls for Taking Back ‘Stolen’ Seats
Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) suggested expanding the Supreme Court in a Thursday speech, claiming the court is currently “illegitimate” and “far-right” and could pose a threat to any potential gun control legislation passed by Congress.
At a press conference where he and other Democrats called for action on gun control in the wake of the Uvalde, Texas elementary school shooting, Markey targeted the Supreme Court on top of Republicans, the NRA, and former President Donald Trump. Trump appointed Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh.
“We have to take very seriously the threat which an illegitimate, far-right Supreme Court poses to gun safety in our country,” the senator said. “We have to expand the Supreme Court to get back the two stolen seats that the Republicans and Donald Trump took from the American people.”
Congress has a moral responsibility to address gun violence, but Republicans refuse to act. I am standing with activists and advocates from @Everytown to demand that we abolish the filibuster and pass comprehensive gun safety legislation now. https://t.co/nbgsLWTcIp

Here’s the video of Markey’s insane statements:

Illegitimate? Stolen? Isn’t that conspiracy theory talk, according to Democrats and the media?
Remember a few weeks ago when Chuck Schumer held a pointless vote on abortion to force everyone to show which side they were on?
See if you can spot the operative phrase in this report from FOX News:
In remarks to supporters from Moms Demand Action and Everytown during the rally outside the Senate, Murphy also emphasized that Democrats will make Republicans take difficult votes if they don’t play ball on gun reform.
“We are going to force people to tell America which side they are on,” Murphy said.
Blumenthal and Murphy were joined Thursday by other lawmakers, including Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Alex Padilla, D-Calif.
A rowdy crowd a few hundred feet from the senators chanted “now” and “action,” demading that the Senate – and Republicans in particular – pass some form of gun legislation.
Democrats aren’t trying to solve problems. They’re campaigning desperately.
The Democrats will dial anything up to 11 if they think it will help them in November.
