John Roberts’ lifelong mission to erase the gains of the Civil Rights movement is nearly complete.
Pay no mind to Roberts’ ruling in a recent case brought to the Supreme Court by the vast and insidious far-right legal project bent on nullifying the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh sided with the Court’s three liberals to stop further erosion of the VRA – a strange move indeed for Roberts, who in 2013 wholeheartedly endorsed ripping the beating heart out of the Voting Rights Act and giving Republican-held states the legal greenlight to pass a raft of discriminatory anti-voting laws designed to uphold the supremacy and domination of both white people and capital.
That vast far-right legal project has many players: Some more important than others. There’s no one more important than Roberts.
