… and the nominee is known!! I’ll let this post explain the many reasons that this nomination is more than many, many steps backwards!!
One of many … “Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is the most “self-serving” selection that Drumpf could have made to protect himself from a criminal investigation.”
To say that the lives of Americans are at stake because of this nomination cannot be overstated.
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump tonight, the President who Russia helped elect, nominated D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh — a stalwart right wing conservative who previously worked in the George W. Bush administration — hasn’t weighed in explicitly on high-profile issues related to LGBTQ nondiscrimination, and yet we must know that with the rabidly anti-LGBTQ Family Research Council lavishing praise on him, given their main agenda, this man is likely as anti-LGBTQ as one can get and hence a serious danger.
Kavanaugh’s nomination comes at a critical moment for the LGBTQ community: more Americans than ever before support ensuring LGBTQ people are treated fairly and equally under the law, and a growing number of court cases are affirming the importance of nondiscrimination protections.
