Conservative Justices Voice Scepticism on Voting Law
Source: New York Times
WASHINGTON — A central provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 may be in peril, judging from tough questioning on Wednesday from the Supreme Court’s more conservative members.
Justice Antonin Scalia called the provision, which requires nine states, mostly in the South, to get federal permission before changing voting procedures, a “perpetuation of racial entitlement.” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. asked a sceptical question about whether people in the South are more racist than those in the North. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy asked how much longer Alabama must live “under the trusteeship of the United States government.”
The court’s more liberal members, citing data and history, said Congress remained entitled to make the judgment that the provision was still needed in the covered jurisdictions.
“It’s an old disease,” Justice Stephen G. Breyer said of efforts to thwart minority voting. “It’s gotten a lot better. A lot better. But it’s still there.”

scalia law by hip is everything
scalia called it “perpetuation of racial entitlement.” …
what an asshole …
and nothing more than dangerous, divisive, racist and regressive bloviating from the court’s most repugnant and out of touch member …

justices alito, scalia, thomas & roberts are most certainly licking their lips at this chance to let rethuglican voter restriction fraud loose on the country …
it’s the ONLY way that the republican party will EVER again be a national, in power party …

they take away your right to a good free education thereby lowering the job skills and then they hire all the poor folks at slave wages with no benefits (added benefit there:they aren’t healthy and die young, thereby freeing them from being “their brothers keeper) …
then they change SSI to investments only and tank the stock marked again and again, taking all the profits and impoverishing everyone else …
they disallow any form of birth control to create even more poor people and keep women enslaved to their biology (of course rich women will have no problem getting these banned substances) …
the handmaidens tale is a republican wet dream of the future …
these guys are still pissed about the civil war, and they want their plantations back …
