Poorly qualified to completely unqualified political hacks – who were clearly gifted unearned appointments to various judicial posts to act as saboteurs to legitimate law – are somehow causing na├»ve idiots to clutch their pearls when they commit the sabotage they were obviously appointed to commit.

Weird.

If you read up on the long-term strategy of deranged right-wing loons, you will see that this has been the goal since at least the Goldwater split (Goldwater considered the John Birch Society and their ilk a shameful stain on his party). I recommend Wrapped in the Flag: What I Learned Growing Up in America’s Radical Right, How I Escaped, and Why My Story Matters Today by Claire Connor. This book is arguably more relevant now than at its 2014 publication.

It seems that the fraction of the judiciary which may be considered saboteurs has finally achieved the critical mass of grotesquely corrupt “jurists” – who can “interpret” the law such that the words (usually in English) do not mean what English speaking people think they mean – can effectively claim that any law means the most fascist “interpretation” the words can be tortured into.
