If you listen to the mainstream media, you would think that the Biden administration is all that is good and holy in Washington, D.C. and that they are marching forward to certain victory.
But the truth paints a very different picture.
Now, you already know how immoral, illegal, and unworkable so many policies already put forth by this administration are. What you may not have heard about, though, is how this administration is getting smacked down in court, too.
Here is one recent instance for you. Janita Kan writes,
A federal appeals court this week blocked the Biden administration from prioritizing grants in its restaurant relief program on the basis of race and gender.
In a 2-1 ruling, the 6th Circuit Court granted an injunction to a restaurant that sued the Small Business Administration to challenge its use of race and sex preferences when distributing its $28.6 billion Restaurant Revitalization Funds. The court held that prioritizing women, and socially and economically disadvantaged business owners for the first 21 days of the application period violated the equal protection clause.
Judge Amul Thapar, who wrote the majority opinion, ruled that the federal government lacks a compelling interest to use race preferences in awarding the grants. He also wrote that even if the government had a compelling interest, its scheme fails to be narrowly tailored to the interest because race-neutral alternatives exist.
“Because these race-neutral alternatives exist, the government’s use of race is unconstitutional. Aside from the existence of race-neutral alternatives, the government’s use of racial preferences is both overbroad and underinclusive. This is also fatal to the policy,” Thapar wrote for the majority […].
Boom! Slam the door on that racist and sexist prioritization nonsense.
What makes it even better is that, in the ruling, Thapar also wrote:
Consider the requirement that a business must be at least 51% owned by women or minorities. How does that help remedy past discrimination?
Yes, pray tell, Comrade Biden, how does favoritism for some and against others based on their DNA help discrimination that happened before any of us were born?
It’s past time for the left to stop pretending that African-Americans (and other ethnic minorities) and women are helpless victims who can’t live a life on their own terms if they’re willing to put in the work necessary. Really, the left’s characterization of people as helpless victims couldn’t be more insulting to those people.
