Mitchell: Could SCOTUS Overturn Desegregation Ruling Too?

May 13, 2022

Thursday on MSNBC Reports, host propagandist Andrea Mitchell asked former Attorney General Eric Holder whether the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade means the court could also dismantle Brown v Board of Education, the ruling that ended segregation in American public schools.

“How unprecedented, first of all, is the leak?” Mitchell asked. “And the way they came down in terms of breaking precedent, ignoring stare decisis and deciding to completely overrule Roe v. Wade after 49 years.”

Holder acknowledged that the leak itself was “unprecedented” but “what we really need to focus on is what’s contained in that leaked opinion,” he said. “Looks like they’re going to overturn Roe v. Wade, inconsistent with the notion that you would adhere to precedent that people have relied on over the last 50 years. It’s an attack on the right to privacy.”

“And if they care so little about precedent and overruling precedent, what about Brown v. Board of Education? What about other major civil rights rulings of the 50s and 60s?” Mitchell fear-mongered.

“That’s a question that you might have said, ‘Well, you’re going too far Andrea’ and yet you think about those Trump judges who when they were questioned about is Brown v. The Board of Education a super-precedent or something you would not re-examine, they waffled on that,” Holder stated. “How could you waffle on Brown v the Board of Education? And yet they did.”

The irony here is that it is the Democrat Party, the party of Critical Race Theory and the new racism of “anti-racism,” that is calling for the segregation of America again.
