Der Messiah DID decree the following (link and link) so that we would all know what we were getting into:

"The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth.... The tragedies of the civil rights movement was — because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change."

we are going to fundamentally transform America."

“And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical.

It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution

at least as it’s been interpreted, and [the] Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [it] says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf."

Redistribution of wealth (Marx's words) was the goal. The Constitution is the problem.

Looks like problem solved and goal on track. In less than a decade we may well all be equally poor and powerless sheeple in the service of those who are "more equal than others."

What the HELL was there ever to mis-understand about this piece of human garbage?

"Goddamn America" was not just something he heard in church on Sundays. It was he and his comrades most burning desire.

And we handed it to him.
