Far-Left Group to Spend $10 Million on Anti-Supreme Court Campaign

The far-left advocacy group Demand Justice announced its intentions to spend as much as $10 million on a messaging campaign smearing the Supreme Court after its ruling in favor of President Donald Trump on the question of presidential immunity.

According to Politico, Demand Justice’s goals for the $10 million spending spree include opposition research on potential future Supreme Court justices and suggestions for ethics reforms within the court. The group also plans to target such demographics as women and younger voters, falsely claiming that these groups have been “attacked” by the Supreme Court’s recent rulings. Demand Justice also intends to attack right-wing judicial groups that played a role in shaping the court’s conservative majority under the Trump Administration.

“Our democracy is in an absolute crisis, and the Supreme Court majority is accelerating it,” said Skye Perryman (pictured above), a new senior adviser for Demand Justice. “We have a court that is not protecting our democratic institutions.”

There have been increased demands from the far-left for Democrats to pack the Supreme Court by expanding the total number of justices so that the court can be given a new liberal majority. These efforts largely began in 2016, when the Republican-led Senate refused to confirm Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, in the final year of Barack Obama’s presidency. With three new justices confirmed under President Trump, the court’s 6-3 conservative majority has issued landmark rulings on such issues as abortion, gun control, and affirmative action.

On Monday, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority ruled that President Trump has absolute immunity for actions that fall within “conclusive and preclusive” constitutional authority, as well as presumptive immunity for other official acts. Largely seen as a massive victory for the former president, the ruling all but fatally cripples the ongoing prosecutions of President Trump by Special Counsel Jack Smith and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, ensuring that their cases will not go to trial before the November election.

Other organizations that have arisen with the same far-left goals include Court Accountability, United for Democracy, and Fix the Court. However, their demands for packing the court have remained stagnant due to a lack of support among most members of Congress and the White House. Even if such a proposal were to be introduced, it would require at least 60 votes in the U.S. Senate, which is mathematically impossible without some Republican support, which is highly unlikely.
