The distress of the Democrat Party on nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is based on recommendation and promotion by The Federalist Society. The Society’s mission is based on belief in the virtue of judicial restraint as is articulated in Federalist 78 written by Alexander Hamilton:
In Federalist 78, Hamilton says “It can be of no weight to say that the courts, on the pretense of a repugnancy, may substitute their own pleasure to the constitutional intentions of the legislature. The courts must declare the sense of the law: and if they should be disposed to exercise will instead of judgment, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.”
The logo of the Federalist Society is the image of James Madison, who is generally credited as the father of the Constitution.
The Democrat Party sees the appointment of Kavanaugh as an existential threat to their “pleasure” of judicial activism and the progression to democratic socialism.
