Supreme Court, in 5-4 Decision, Agrees with US Public and Endorses Gay Marriage: The Usual Suspects Dispense their Usual Fascist Verbiage

2015-06-27

This quote, from Justice Anthony Kennedy’s decision, said it best: (quoted from NYT)

‘“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the historic decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”’

” ‘The nature of injustice is that we may not always see it in our own times,’ he wrote on Friday. ‘The generations that wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment did not presume to know the extent of freedom in all of its dimensions, and so they entrusted to future generations a charter protecting the right of all persons to enjoy liberty as we learn its meaning.’ ”

This quote says it worst:

In a second dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia mocked the soaring language of Justice Kennedy, who has become the nation’s most important judicial champion of gay rights.

“The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic,” Justice Scalia wrote of his colleague’s work. “Of course the opinion’s showy profundities are often profoundly incoherent.”

I find nothing incoherent, much less “profoundly” incoherent, in Justice Kennedy’s words.  Once again, Scalia (I hesitate to call him Justice for fear of demeaning the word) has shown himself to be a word hack, writing lies in the service of his profoundly illiberal conservative philosophy.  Notice the repeated use of the word “profound” in Kennedy’s opinion, Scalia’s dissent (twice) and in my rebuttal of Scalia’s dissent.  Here is a repetition  simply for the purpose of repetition, without specific meaning.  Scalia uses the words “showy” and “incoherent” to ridicule Kennedy’s opinions without giving a specific meaning to his ridicule and the word “egotistic” to suggest that Kennedy’s opinion refers to Kennedy’s own sexual orientation without coming right out and saying it.  This is an unfair attempt to demean Kennedy.

Scalia topped himself, for the second day in a row (on the first day he denounced the court’s reading of the words “the state”) writing meaningless, shallow lies to advance his hatred for everything liberal, social-justice-oriented, and in support of the government’s need to support its own people.

If I were a provocateur, I would (and I’m NOT advising this for fear of unforeseen consequences) advocate for the assassination of Scalia, Thomas, Alito, and Roberts as being in the way of progress and in need of immediate replacement by a black president’s better conceived nominations.  Just imagine what would happen if Scalia, Thoma, Alito, and Roberts had to be replaced.  Would conservatives claim that Obama has no right to nominate liberals to replace these conservatives with conflicts of interest?

Unfortunately, now is not the right time to replace these fascist, freedom-hating justices because Republicans have a majority in the Senate.  Obama would not be able to nominate the best justices: he is held back by the Republicans in the Senate.  He would have to nominate compromise candidates who might not be really good, but rather weak.  The right time will be after Clinton wins the 2016 Presidential election and balance in the Senate is restored.
