Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has just turned the liberal world on its head.
During a recent interview, McConnell stated that if the GOP gets back the Senate majority, he will not support a Biden SCOTUS during an election year.
Well, let’s say this put a massive target on the head of Justice Breyer.
Here Come the Threats
As the oldest liberal justice, Breyer has had a bit of a target on his head when Biden took office.
After the RBG disaster, allowing Trump to nominate his third justice at the end of his term, Democrats are terrified of Breyer not leaving the bench while Biden has time to nominate a replacement.
If Breyer were to retire before the 2022 election cycle, it is all but guaranteed that a Biden nominee would pass the Senate.
If, however, Republicans take the Senate back in 2022, which seems very likely, it will be tough to get a true progressive on the bench, which is exactly what the left wants from Biden.
If Breyer remains and then decides to retire at the end of Biden’s term or passes away in the last year, McConnell’s statement means the seat would remain open until after the 2024 election has been decided.
If Republicans take back the White House, this would mean a 7-2 edge for a conservative ideology, which would have the left burning down the Supreme Court.
Now they are doing the next best thing in their eyes, demanding the Breyer step down right now.
Here are just a few of the posts we have seen on social media…
Breyer needs to retire. Greatness in public service has to also mean knowing when it’s time to pass the baton, and it’s time.

When I became the first person in Congress to call for Justice Breyer to retire now, while President Biden can still appoint a successor, some people asked whether it was necessary.
Yes. Yes, it is. https://t.co/wivYhBGGWf

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has also joined the mob on this front.
Regarding Breyer stepping down right now, she stated, “You know, I – it’s something that I’d think about but I, I would probably lean towards yes. But yes, you’re asking me this question so I’ve just, I would give more thought to it, but, but I’m inclined to say yes.”
Robert Cruickshank, the campaign director at Demand Progress, stated, “If Breyer refuses to retire, he’s not making some noble statement about the judiciary. He is saying he wants Mitch McConnell to handpick his replacement.”
Vox writer Matthew Yglesias added, “Justice Breyer is playing a reckless and irresponsible gamble with the future of hundreds of millions of people.”
This is a legitimate meltdown by the left to the point we are starting to get worried about Breyer and his safety because we have all seen what the left does when it gets upset, and right now, they are FUMING.
