Lenient sentences, struggling with definitions, comments on critical race theory… Ketanji Brown Jackson’s hearings before the Senate only raised more questions about her record. Here are the top takeaways: Lenient Sentences on Heinous Criminals
Jackson could not explain why she gave lenient sentences to child predators 100% of the time. Some of her excuses included calling an 18-year-old predator “peers” with his victims and citing his “diplomas.”
A child predator broke the terms of his release a few years after Jackson gave him an extremely lenient sentence. When asked how he broke the terms, she claimed she could not remember even though she signed the paperwork recommitting him and said she remembered the case “well” in 2021.
Per reporting from The Washington Post, the child sex offender had continued his predatory behavior after being released.
Soft on Crime
Jackson apologized to heinous criminals as she was sentencing them. She cited “policy” disagreements to justify her light sentences, but when asked what the appropriate punishments are for certain types of offenses, she refused to answer.
Jackson defended calling the U.S. guilty of war crimes while she defended terrorists pro bono. She has never defended a victim of terrorism pro bono. She refused to say whether terrorists at Gitmo should be released.
Jackson claimed there were "no victims " of a heroine and fentanyl trafficker. Over 100,000 Americans died of overdoes from April 2020 to April 2021.
Refused To Answer Basic Questions
Jackson said “I can’t” when asked to provide a definition of a woman. Without a definition, how can she adjudicate Title VII or Title IX claims?
Jackson said “I don’t know” when asked when life begins and refused to recognize the science on viability and when babies feel pain.
Jackson has a history of attacking the First Amendment rights of pro-life Americans and supporting a radical abortion agenda.
Tied To Critical Race Theory
Jackson has praised CRT proponents in lectures and speeches.
Jackson sits on the board of Georgetown Day School, which teaches critical race theory, including for “younger grades.”
Even The Washington Post confirmed she is involved in approving CRT “initiatives” at the school.
The New York Times confirmed that the school proudly requires all parents, including Jackson, to endorse its radical agenda.
The main takeaway: Jackson should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court.
