Left wing comedian Wanda Sykes is the latest Hollywood type to make her anger known over recent Supreme Court decisions on abortion and gun rights.
During an appearance on the left wing Stephen Colbert show, Sykes trashed middle America and suggested that coastal liberals should be in charge of such big decisions.
She also said that we’re no longer a democracy, and on that point she is right but not for the reason she thinks. The fact is that America is a constitutional republic and has never been a democracy.

Wanda Sykes Attacks Middle America over Roe Reversal: ‘The Country Is No Longer a Democracy’
Comedian Wanda Sykes trashed middle America during her appearance Monday on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, arguing red states in the “middle” of the country are to blame for the Supreme Court’s historic overturning of Roe v. Wade.
“It’s no longer majority rule,” she said, apparently forgetting that the Supreme Court doesn’t decide cases based on popular opinion. She also said states like California and New York should decide matters of national importance because they have the most people.
Wanda Sykes flaunted her woefully inept grasp of American government while chatting with host Stephen Colbert on Monday.
“It’s like the country is no longer a democracy, right?” she said. “It’s no longer majority rule.”

What Sykes doesn’t seem to comprehend is that in overturning Roe, the Supreme Court is returning power to the states, to the people.
That is actually closer to the ‘democracy’ that she claims to want.
