Commentary Transcript:

The political and legal agenda of right wing Republicans and Libertarians is now graphically exposed.  In the case of Shelby County vs. Holder, 5 men on the Supreme Court abandoned any pretense of respect for law, liberty or freedom.  Basically their position is one of power – control of the working class through the use of Capitalist racism to divide and conquer.

The South again politically controls the country through the Republican Party.  But not by majority vote but by suppression of the vote of working people, especially African Americans and Latinos.  Five Republican Supreme Court men (I will never call them Justices) Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy and Samuel Alito, refused to recognize the legislative decision that voting in the South is still as fragile right that must be protected.  In other words, they will accept the legislative decision only if they agree with it.  That is the Republican agenda.  Power not freedom, oppression and suppression replace liberty.

These Republicans now define equality as sameness, basically wiping out 300 years of slavery, Jim Crow segregation, and mass incarceration.  And they claim to view original intent, instead they eliminate all history.  The demand for the vote for all working people is a fight for democracy.

I am Spartacus and so are We all!
