The 5 ALEC Justices Gutted Voting Rights 15th Amendment

Every single day since November 5, 2008, conservatives have asserted they want to “take their country back,” and yesterday the highest court in the land obliged them and sent the nation back to February 2, 1870; the day prior to ratification of the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Despite the increasing level of racism infecting America, the conservative Supreme Court officially endorsed, and enforced, the GOP and transferred that power to the Koch-supported American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
The High Court granted permission to Republican states to nullify the 15th Amendment.
