This is not just “playing with fire” but directly threatening murder. It’s not just so much talk. Real threats are not protected as free speech. https://t.co/W2O9aQRlUK— Laurence Tribe (@tribelaw) October 30, 2021
Although maybe it has something to do with Harvard.
It’s “true threat,” not “real threat.” And it’s not a true threat. It’s rhetorical, hypothetical, and in the indefinite future. https://t.co/S9GJRA6opB— TryingToHelpHat (@Popehat) October 30, 2021

Harvard must purposefully select for faculty most likely to have stupid takes. There's no way this is just all coincidence. https://t.co/a5h3KzXyeb

The line between real life and internet life is not the bright one some people imagine.
The Southwest pilot is an ass, but a very familiar kind of ass. Don’t you encounter obnoxious strangers oversharing their political views routinely, including in captive-audience situations? Or is that just me?— TryingToHelpHat (@Popehat) October 30, 2021
Or maybe I just have a “I will agree with your loutishness” face.
I am beginning to wonder what the difference between the disaster of a Trump nullifying Supreme Court review would be and what the Robert's and previous Rehnquist Courts have been up to. They nullified the Voting Rights Act for obvious partisan political purposes, they imposed George W. Bush on the country for obvious partisan political purposes, they are about to national the bodies of women of child-bearing age, they will certainly try to nullify all of the environmental law they can for the likes of Coney-Barrett's daddy.ReplyDelete
The Supreme Court's self-made powers of review are hardly an unmitigated good, I would bet in a trial of it, the scale of justice would heavily tilt to oligarchic evil. That statue as its representative is a massive lie.
The dangers of America's form of government are real and for most People of Color, Women, LGBTQ, and others for most of our history the Supreme Court has not been our friend. That Roberts is widely rumored to be in the closet is probably the only reason that it so recently came to be seen as differently for LGBTQ or whatever portion of my community he would put himself on the line for and I doubt it's all of us.
I think the Court is going to force the overturning of Marbury v Madison in that regard because it is going into what may be its most degenerate period ever, if not for a long time.
