Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts appeared to be in agony. That’s because he was being honored by the American Law Institute. And he decided to open up about his feelings on various issues. One of those issues was what exactly the hardest decision of his career has been.
And do you know what he said? The most challenging, most difficult decision of John Roberts’s career was having to make the agonizing decision to erect fences around the court after Roe fell. This does tell us a lot about how out of touch the chief justice is.
“What was the hardest decision I had to make in 18 years?” Roberts said. “The hardest decision I had to make was whether to erect fences and barricades around the supreme court. I had no choice but to go ahead and do it,” Roberts announced sanctimoniously.
Oh, Supreme Court, Supreme Court — hear ye, hear ye — please shut up. I am tired of the extreme court. I am so bloody tired of hearing about how all of you are victims of mean people. Time after time, you and Thomas and Alito whine and WHINE. None of you have a remote idea how entitled, how out of touch with reality, how utterly arrogant you sound.
You’re all like little kings (and a queen) wiping your sweaty brows, declaring how awful it is to live by the same rules as everybody else. Poor me – poor, poor little me, you all whine regularly and annoyingly. Why doesn’t everyone love us? Why won’t people just sit down, shut up and accept your own imagined importance?
I wonder if one of you — Barrett, Thomas, Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Alito, and YOU, Mr. Roberts — have ever even WONDERED how many women have died since your stinking betrayal of women everywhere?
Have you been awake at night even once, thinking about that young girl who had to flee to another state or be forced to carry the rapist’s baby? Have you thought of all the women — who had miscarriages and could not get care because of you?
Do you have the faintest idea of the mess you’ve caused in America? So please shut up, Mr. Roberts. Why not save your voice for more equitable matters, such as enacting a code of conduct ? There is not one person in this country working who has no boss to answer to — except you.
I am tired of all of you — the one who stands aligned with witch judges, the friend of a man who collects Nazi memorabilia, the one who thinks corporations are people. You need to learn humility. You know, humility. H-U-M-I-L-I-T-Y. Say it with me, Roberts, the one word you and the crazy five lack.
And frankly, nobody REALLY wants to hear about your tough decision-making. Until you get pregnant under appalling conditions and have to decide whether to keep the baby, I don’t want to hear a damn thing from you or any of your posse.
