Eiron, The Goddess of Irony, Laughed So Hard She Farted

A couch in Trenton is missing its upholstery

Justice Mr. Ginni Thomas, er, Clarence Thomas is worried about the reputation of the SCOTUS:

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said he’s concerned efforts to politicize the court or add additional justices may erode the institution’s credibility, speaking Friday in Utah at an event hosted by former Republican U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch’s foundation…

“You can cavalierly talk about packing or stacking the court. You can cavalierly talk about doing this or doing that. At some point the institution is going to be compromised,” he told an audience of about 500 people at an upscale hotel in Salt Lake City.

“By doing this, you continue to chip away at the respect of the institutions that the next generation is going to need if they’re going to have civil society,” Thomas said.

And Eiron, the Goddess of Irony, well, you know.

    It’s a little late to worry about something that you and your fellow right-wing “justices” have already completely pissed away, Uncle Thomas.

    It would have been nice to have an actual civil society to leave for the next generation, but we’ve been flat out of that for about as long as I’ve been around. Anyone one else? You every seen one? What was it like?

    For decades the GOP has been wrecking civil society by attacking organizations they do not control and by warping those they do control to serve the GOP’s demented ideology. The Supreme court has suffered from bad faith attacks in the past and since at least 2000 it has been under the perverse control of the GOP. Now that the number of political hacks has reached critical mass, the court has almost no credibility. It needs to be massively expanded so that it will be much harder to stuff with ideologues.

    “…that the next generation is going to need as they face life without voting rights, reproductive choice or access to affordable health care.” FIFY, Mr. Justice.

    Clarence Thomas, his uncivil insurrectionist wife, and the other radical right activist hacks on the court have done more to destroy its credibility than anyone not named Mitch McConnell.

    Some of their greatest hits: stopping the Florida recount in Bush v Gore, twisting the 2nd Amendment to invent an imdivual right for any nutjob to own any firearm they want, inventing corporate personhood to allow corporate money to flood our election, rewriting regulations from the bench, gutting the Voting Rights Act to enable mass vote suppression, and enabling forced birth.

    The John Roberts Apartheid Court is a fraud that has decided to put itself against the will of the people. Going to be compromised? Lol what alt right planet is Clarence Thomas living on?
