Sonia Sotomayor bemoans ‘six unelected members’ having an opinion on affirmative action

The Supreme Court struck down unconstitutional affirmative action programs at the University of North Carolina and Harvard on Thursday, ending the consideration of race in a ruling that makes the admissions process colorblind.

Three justices dissented from the decision, Obama-appointed Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, and Biden-appointed Ketanji Brown Jackson — Jackson recused herself from the Harvard case because she on one of Harvard’s governing boards — but it was Sotomayor’s written dissent that stood out for ridicule after she complained that “six unelected members” of the court made a decision on the case.

“At bottom, the six unelected members of today’s majority upend the status quo based on their policy preferences about what race in America should be like, but is not, and their preferences for a veneer of colorblindness in a society where race has always mattered and continues to matter in fact and in law,” Sotomayor wrote.

Somewhat ironically, she invalidates her own opinion with that assertion — unless she’s mistaken that she was elected.

A deeper dive into Sotomayor’s opinion finds that even Justice Neil Gorsuch felt the need to ridicule her, writing that “the dissent gets so turned around about the facts that it opens fire on its own position.”

Barack and Michelle Obama led the charge in denouncing the affirmative action ruling, as Democratic lawmakers pounced to renew calls for stacking the Supreme Court by expanding the number of seats — even liberal lioness Ruth Bader Ginsburg opposed expanding the high court.

President Biden openly questioned the legitimacy of the court for no other reason than the fact that it leans right when properly cued by a media ally, his response being a good indication of how Democrats view government institutes that are not functioning in their favor.

“This is not a normal court,” the feeble 80-year-old president told the reporter.

Social media users unloaded on Justice Sotomayor… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
