Rep Clay Higgins (R-LA) invoked the fight against incarceration camps to the voter fraud he insists stole the election from Donald Trump.
“The Supreme Court did not stop it,” Higgins wrote on Facebook about the imprisonment of 120,000 Japanese Americans in World War II.
Similarly, the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a lawsuit from Texas and 19 other states challenging the presidential results which saw Joe Biden winning 306 electoral votes and a record 81 million votes- 7 million more than Trump.
“If you kneel, that’s on you. If your rationale for kneeling is based upon a contemporary general acceptance of unconstitutional oppression and lack of Court intervention, then I ask you… if you were a Japanese American in WWII… would you just concede? Would you kneel?” Higgins concluded.
According to the Hill, Higgins is one of more than 100 Republicans that signed an amicus brief supporting the losing Supreme Court case.
The Guardian reports reports the Supreme Court unanimously rejected the case despite its conservative leanings and the fact that 3 of the 9 justices were appointed by Trump himself.
“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot,” the high court wrote.
