For the first time since 1964, Republicans in Illinois have a chance at flipping the Illinois Supreme Court.
Let's think about that one.
- Lyndon Johnson was president
- The Civil Rights Act was passed
- The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize.
- Actress Elizabeth Taylor married actor Richard Burton for the first time
But Illinois Democrats, who control all three branches of government, are not making it easy for conservative Republicans.
Take for example the left-leaning Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA), who has an interest in who sits on the Supreme Court. In their "Judicial Candidate Questionnaire for the 2022 Primary Election," the questions are irrelevant, offensive, and prove that the ISBA has gone "woke" to protect their favorite judicial candidates.
Try ignoring these questions, and the ISBA will give you a "Not Recommended" rating.
In other words, by not playing their liberal, progressive games, the Illinois bar association will label you with a rating they hope damages your chances at an election victory.
Play by their liberal, left-leaning games and you’ll receive a "Highly Recommended" rating.
That’s the deal.
In case you are wondering, judicial candidate questions include:
"Do you belong to any business or social clubs, organizations, unions or associations which use race, gender, sexual orientation or national origin as a basis for determining memberships or the privileges of membership?"
"How important is it to you to have inclusion from people of a different race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, physical or mental disability, military status, or sexual orientation than you as a lawyer and/or judge in the legal profession?"
"What efforts, if any, have you made in your community to include people of a different race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, physical or mental disability, military status, or sexual orientation than you as a lawyer and/or judge in the legal profession?"
Whatever happened to the term, "equal justice under law?"
In Illinois, conservative Judge John A. Noverini refused to fill out the ISBA judicial candidate questionnaire, and as expected, he was given a rating of "Not Recommended."
Talk about bullying.
The Democrats and the left-leaning ISBA are doing everything in their power to ensure that their judicial candidates are in, including RINOs — and conservative candidates are out.
At a time when Democratic leaders are abusing their power — as we’ve seen over the last two years of the pandemic, now is the time to elect more conservatives — and that includes judges and Supreme Court candidates.
