Alito Gives Us A Clue Of What Is Next

The Torquemada of Trenton, Justice Sammie tells us what is on his mind, and thus we cannot say we were not warned:

In the speech, Alito ran through a detailed examination of statutory textualism and reiterated his disagreement with Justice Neil Gorsuch, who wrote the majority opinion in the case Bostock v. Clayton County (2020), in which the court ruled that bans on discrimination on the basis of sex apply to discrimination on the grounds of gender identity.

Alito called Gorsuch a “colleague and friend,” saying he is happy to have him on the court. Yet he reiterated his view that Gorsuch’s opinion is “in my view indefensible.” Alito noted that the concept of gender identity was unknown at the time Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and that Congress would not have passed the law if legislators had known it would be interpreted this way. “It might not have gotten a single vote,” he said.

Bostock v. Clayton County extends the the Civil Rights Act’s protections against discrimination to LGBTQ people. He’s not done taking away everyone’s rights, not by a long shot.

    May I refer you to the movie Little Big Man.
    There is definitely a character in that movie with a gender identity that doesn’t match the shape of, er, his skin.
    That was a movie alleged to be about true events in the 1800s, as remembered by some old guy. (I don’t know how much water the allegations hold, but still)

    I do look forward to the changes in gun ownership laws to include only those weapons available in the 1700s.

    The “Dread Sam” (women have no rights which the white man, or any man, is obliged to respect) ruling is only the tip of the iceberg in these extremists two-prong strategy: advance the theocratic position to shore up the court’s political base while at the same time advancing the plutocratic agenda to please the power behind the throne.

  3. Alito noted that the concept of gender identity was unknown at the time Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 semiautomatic weapons with high capacity magazines were unknown at the time the Second Amendment was ratified, and that Congress would not have passed the law ratified it if legislators had known it would be interpreted this way. lead to people gunning down second graders, and that nothing would be done to prevent it in the future.

    Same logic, Sam.

    (also, too the “concept of ‘gender identity’ was absolutely well known in 1964! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christine_Jorgensen )

    I mean, even if you believe that gender is binary, that’s a belief in gender identity. Alito is a moron.
