Judge Dannenberg resigns in protest

"John Roberts, you are allowing the Court to become an “errand boy” for an administration that has little respect for the rule of law." - wrote James Dannenberg, State Court judge who resigned in protest after serving for 27 years.

  • You are doing far more— and far worse– than “calling balls and strikes.”
  • You are allowing the Court to become an “errand boy” for an administration that has little respect for the rule of law.
  • The Court, under your leadership and with your votes, has wantonly flouted established precedent.
  • Your “conservative” majority has cynically undermined basic freedoms by hypocritically weaponizing others.
  • The ideas of free speech and religious liberty have been transmogrified to allow officially sanctioned bigotry and discrimination.
  • To elevate the grossest forms of political bribery beyond the ability of the federal government or states to rationally regulate it.
  • This is radical “legal activism” at its worst.

  • The Court become little mt ore than a result-oriented extension of the right wing of the Republican Party, as vetted by the Federalist Society.
  • The rationales of “textualism” and “originalism” are mere fig leaves masking right wing political goals.
  • The only constitutional freedoms ultimately recognized may soon be limited to those useful to wealthy, Republican, White, straight, Christian, and armed males— and the corporations they control.
  • This is wrong. Period.
  • This is not America. (Salon)

Cartoons say it best

Cartoon distill an issue into a single image that we easily understand and can smile it. They work regardless of the reader's age, education or language. I use cartoons from Political Cartoons which was founded by Daryl Cagle. Credit for Homer Simpson image to Matt Groening.

“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating." - Saul Alinsky.

Cartoons highlight the Supreme Court's hypocrisy and need no explanation. Alito pissing on legal precedent to gut Roe v Wade. Or Clarence Thomas asking the public to accept outcomes while his wife Ginny conspires with the Jan 6th insurrectionists to overturn the election results.

TakeAway: Make it easy for more people to see how the Supreme Court has been politicized and how that impacts their lives.
