SCOTUS decisions will change the political landscape, by Star Parker


With the Supreme Court concluding one of the most historic and important mandates in its history, it leaves in its wake consequences and implications for the direction of our country.

A very important result could well be a movement of black and Hispanic voters to the right.

It is reasonable to conclude that the Conservatives are happy with where this tribunal has gotten us and the Liberals are not happy.

Specifically, those who believe in the original vision of the country, that it is about individual liberty and that the Constitution is designed to limit the federal government to few and well-defined areas, are happy.

And those who believe that the vision of the founders is no longer relevant today, or that the country was flawed from the start and that their job today is to correct those flaws, are not happy.

Digging further, many may conclude that this recent court session will deepen the divide between those already on the right and those on the left.

However, the decisions of this court speak directly and positively to black and Hispanic realities and challenges, and it is more reasonable to conclude that the political outcome will be the migration of black and Hispanic voters to the right.

Surely blacks and Hispanics will hear the opposite from leftist propagandists.

Most of the headlines have focused on the Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade.

But there were other critically important decisions with far-reaching implications.

In Carson v. Makin, the court found that the state of Maine violated the First Amendment’s protection of the “free exercise” of religion where public funds used to pay public and private school tuition cannot could not be used for religious schools. .

In Kennedy v. Bremerton, the court ruled that the Bremerton School District violated the free exercise of religion and First Amendment free speech protections when Bremerton High School fired its football coach for praying on the line. 50 meters at the end of football matches.

In New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen, the court found that a New York State law required “just cause,” that is, a special reason to carry a handgun, in violation of the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to bear arms. .

As Judge Brett Kavanaugh asked when hearing the case, “Why isn’t it enough to say I live in a violent area and want to defend myself.”

For black Americans, who live in some of the most dangerous communities in the country, the court’s decision guaranteeing them the right to defend themselves is important news and good news.

For Black and Hispanic Americans, whose children are disproportionately trapped in failing public schools, clarifying court protections and safeguards that strengthen parents’ ability to choose where to send children to school is a very good news.

Court rulings bolstering First Amendment religious freedom protections and disabusing the misguided notion that the U.S. Constitution is indifferent to the sanctity of life and provides for the right to abortion will move Blacks and Hispanics to the political right. .

Black and Hispanic voters are beginning to see what the cultural chaos of the left has done to their families and their communities.

The recent election of Mayra Flores as a Republican and the first Mexican-born congresswoman is a good example. She garnered 51% of the vote in a Texas district that had never elected a Republican before. She presented herself as a candidate raised with “strong conservative values ​​centered on faith, family and hard work”.

His campaign poster titled ‘God, Family, Country’ in English and Spanish.

I sincerely believe that the recent session of the Supreme Court will be well received by America’s black and Hispanic communities and provides good reason to expect strong implications for change in the country’s political landscape.
