Republicans Must Stand Firm on Scalia Replacement

Matt Walsh over at The Blaze has written a wonderful article on the late Antonin Scalia’s replacement and how the Republican Party will lose him if they do not stand firm. Every elected Republican must read this article. Now. They stand to lose the very thing most of them hold dearest to their hearts: Power!

Justice Scalia’s body wasn’t even cold yet before Mitch McConnell ran to a microphone to issue this statement, as reported by Politico:

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president,” McConnell said, at a time when other elected officials, from Sen. Bernie Sanders to future Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer, were releasing statements offering condolences to the justice’s family, which includes 26 grandchildren.

The above by the famously spaghetti spined McConnell, then forced President Barack Obama off the golf course in Rancho Mirage to issue a rebuttal to the challenge:

Now, Obama may have still put in the “due course” bit, but after the McConnell challenge he had to remind us that he is President for another eleven months.

Matt Walsh has issued his own ultimatum. He has written it in a well reasoned article. Republicans must stiffen their resolve.

One section of the article is titled “Dark Explosions of Satanic Joy” (perfection) which describes the gleeful hate tweets that our far left citizens have sent. A small sample:


But, why is it so important that Republicans hold this line this time, Matt Walsh explains:

Yet we need another Scalia. Not want. Not hope for. Not in a perfect world. Need. If the Democrats succeed in establishing a full blown liberal court — leaving only Alito and Thomas as the reliable conservatives, with Roberts playing the part when he feels like it — the consequences will be unspeakable. Overturning Roe v. Wade will be out of the question for another generation, signing the death warrant of millions of yet-to-be-conceived children. States that have succeeded in passing laws and regulations curtailing the procedure will eventually be overruled by judicial fiat. Meanwhile, of course, states will never be freed from the requirement that they recognize the court’s perverse and unconstitutional redefinition of marriage. Worse, when the government moves to coerce churches into performing gay “marriages,” the Supreme Court will be there to officially codify the oppression into law, finally eradicating religious liberty in America once and for all.

So Republicans must fight this one with all they have. Whatever it costs. Whatever political capital they forfeit. Whatever they put on the line, including their careers. It doesn’t matter. This right here is a hill to die on. No, it won’t be easy. Democrats were already coming out of the woodwork moments after Scalia died to preemptively slander any Republican who might try to protect America from the uncontrollable tyranny of a hard-left Supreme Court. Hillary Clinton said Saturday night — with a straight face, somehow — Republicans would be “dishonoring the Constitution” if they try to prevent it from being continuously molested from now into eternity. There’s going to be a lot of that. There’s going to be a full year of that. But it doesn’t matter. They can say what they want, cry all the tears they want, issue as many indignant statements as they want, but when it comes down to it, Republicans still have the power. And for once in their lives, they’d better use it.

All those nimrods in Washington, D.C. know is power. For the average American, it is much more important than that. It is our Constitution and Our Rights and Individual Liberties at Stake.

Let every Republican lawmaker know that. And, be warned.
