Voters of color and progressive whites are the majority. We popularly elected Barack Obama twice. Trump lost the popular vote by 2.87 million votes and is only in power due to the Electoral College, Russian interference, and 80,000 votes in three states. Republicans control the Senate yet represent only 153 million Americans, while Democratic Senators represent 168 million Americans.

Trump appointees now hold one quarter of Federal judgeships. If Republicans succeed in confirming Amy Coney Barrett, age 48, three of nine Supreme Court Justices will be Trump nominees, including Neil Gorsuch, age 53, and Brett Kavanaugh, age 55. Barrett Gorsuch and Kavanaugh are extremists whose views sharply contradict those of the majority of Americans. United with Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts, they will form a 6–3 Conservative supermajority serving for the rest of their lives making decisions that affect every aspect of our lives.

Amy Coney Barrett’s sham confirmation to the Supreme Court is the last straw. We must rise up. Get in the streets, get on the phones, get to the polls, and get them out of office. While we’re at it, we need to get their Democratic enablers out of office, too.

Barrett is 100% behind Trump and will enable him to remain in power even after he loses the election.

It is OUTRAGEOUS, a violation of our democracy and it’s time to revolt.

If you can, join us in DC, we need more people to protest the confirmation. If you can’t, organize local protests. Call your Senators, 202–224–3121 and demand they delay the Barrett confirmation vote after the election and vote NO. Call your Senators even if they are Democrats, they are counting calls. Use TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and tag your Senators.
