Nolte: The Unelected Keep Telling Our Elected President to Shut Up
Unless you count the vice president, there is only one person elected by the whole of America. There is only one person chosen by We the People to represent 330 million of us. There is only one person who earned the votes through our constitutional process to speak for all — and that is the president of the United States. And yet, it is the president of the United States who is constantly being told by the unelected to shut up.
Chief Justice John Roberts was appointed to the Supreme Court — appointed. In fact, the entire judiciary is either clogged by those who have not earned a single vote or by those who won no more than the votes of one of the 50 states. And yet, when the man chosen by Americans to represent all of America criticizes the judiciary, the top judge in the country tells him to shut up.
After Trump accurately pointed out that there are indeed “Obama judges,” meaning judges on the Ninth Circuit who serve as left-wing activists as opposed to interpreters of laws written by the people’s elected representatives, Roberts vomited out this chunk of fake news:
We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.
What a crock. But because Roberts cannot intellectually defend the Ninth Circuit, what he does instead is attack the very idea of criticizing the judiciary. He puts the judiciary out of bounds for criticism because it is “independent,” and because it is “independent,” we all need to shut up and be “thankful for” it.
Roberts, though, is only the latest among the unelected to join this Fascist Gang of Unelected Shut Uppers.
The establishment media have not earned a single vote. No one has gone out and cast even one vote that would allow CNN, NBC, the New York Times, etc. to speak for any of us, much less all of us. And yet, when the man who actually was chosen by Americans to represent all of America criticizes the media, the unelected media tell him to shut up by attempting to bully him into silence with invented nonsense about how his criticism is “dangerous” and a violation of the Constitution.
