Leftist groups mount increasing pressure for SCOTUS Justice Breyer to resign

Leading up to the 2020 presidential election, one of the fieriest topics was then-candidate Joe Biden’s stance on whether or not he supports packing the U.S. Supreme Court — a question that his campaign worked overtime to avoid at all costs.

According to Fox News, the debate over court-packing is once again making headlines, thanks to a recent speech delivered to Harvard Law students by liberal Supreme Court Justice Steven Breyer, who seemingly suggested in the speech that he believes packing the high court would be detrimental to the rule of law in America — a stance that has already sparked calls for his resignation by some of the left. 

“Proposals have been recently made to increase the number of Supreme Court justices. I’m sure that others will discuss related political arguments,” Breyer told the audience. “This lecture reflects my own effort to be certain that those who are going to debate these questions … also consider an important institutional point. Consider it. Namely, how would court packing reflect and affect the rule of law itself?”

His comments rapidly triggered backlash from individuals and groups on the left who are now spearheading a national campaign to pressure him out of the high court, which would allow President Biden to fulfill his promise of nominating the first Black woman to the SCOTUS bench.

A quick scroll through social media revealed that the momentum to pressure Justice Breyer into early retirement is raging, to say the least.

Politico reporter Olivia Beavers tweeted an image of a box truck with an advertisement on the back that read, “Breyer, Retire. Don’t Risk Your Legacy.” The advertisement was signed by the liberal group, Demand Justice.

What’s bizarre is that the pressure for him to resign seems to be centered on race issues and not ideological beliefs, which is evidenced by the fact that Breyer has a long history of siding with the left in major high court rulings. That’s why former President Bill Clinton appointed him in the first place.
