As soon as the news broke Wednesday that Justice Kennedy was stepping down from his seat on the United States Supreme Court, the left busted out the sackcloth and ashes and cries that the end was nigh.
They immediately started envisioning a future in which the Constitution was destroyed, suggesting we get fitted right away for Nazi uniforms.
You know, as if Hillary Clinton was picking the next Justice or something.
They do know that “Constitutional originalist” would actually be dedicated to maintaining the Constitution, right?
Anyway, Breitbart news dutifully collected some of the most hysterical responses from the unhinged (and uninformed) Hollywood elite. Here is a sampling:
ok, dems. this is real. all y’all paying attention? this is how you lose a country. all of our rights are in the balance. urge your leadership to resist when trump attempts to appoint the next swamp thing out of the pez dispenser or kiss it bye bye. https://t.co/YxNaD7SdGz

The illegitimate POTUS will now try to ram a SCOTUS nominee through before Nov. So much for that McConnell rule. Calling on two principled Republicans to stand up against tyranny.

GET READY! FIGHT IS ON! Everyone who is not a privileged white man who has been treated like an Other— POC, LGBTQ, Women, the Differently Abled, Muslim, Jew, Poor, etc. NOW we must work together and ACTIVATE. We MUST vote, we MUST make calls, knock on doors help candidates who are looking to flip seats. We MUST call our members of Congress and tell them that every Democrat must refuse to hold a hearing for Trumps SCOTUS nominee ( as GOP McConnell did) until AFTER the Russian probe is concluded. We MUST appeal to exiting GOP Senator McCain and Senator Flake and ask them to be heroes. Ask them to switch parties so we can hold off the vote. Ask GOP Members of Congress who have expressed upset over Trumps policies to vow not to vote on a nominee until the Russian probe is over. No more civility. We must fight fire with fire. McConnell changed the rules. He gave us our playbook. We now need the moral courage to follow it. This is THAT important. If Trump gets one of his nominees in we are looking at Roe v Wade being overturned. Gay marriage overturned. It would be terrible for Union members, and everyone who needs affordable health care. Civil Rights as we know them will be chipped away. PLEASE commit to fighting this.
Every single institution or agency in our government is being dismantled by this administration. Congress, gone, SCOTUS, gone, the Executive branch, in the hands of a madman, the FBI, DOE, EPA, etc. etc. etc. And you thought it couldn’t happen here.

It’s actually supremely disturbing that Democrats seem to think the Constitution protects their ideology one minute, and argue for dismantling it themselves the next. They have no loyalty, or even basic understanding, of what the Constitution was created to protect, and what they’re actually lamenting is the fact that, with another originalist in the Court, our government will more accurately represent the spirit of the founding philosophy of our nation.
The government does not exist to satisfy the whims of the people, the government exists to make sure that the whims of the people don’t infringe the rights of all Americans to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Leftists never seem to get this.
The difference is that politicians rely on their voters to not understand this. These leftist celebs, who are arguably far more influential than the politicians, simply have no idea, and they’re leading the equally ignorant masses into severely misguided hysteria.
The blind are convincing the blind we’re descending into fascism all because they’d prefer their brand of fascism be upheld by the Court instead.
