In Concurring Roe Opinion, Clarence Thomas Calls For Overturning Obergefell, Lawrence, And Griswold Rulings

And it starts.   We knew this was coming.   Doesn’t he realize his own marriage is also going to be illegal if we return to the 1950’s?   These wealthy or religious people on the court don’t think the police are bad because they won’t be affected by bad cops, like congress they won’t be affected by the rulings they make.   These people have the idea that they are the elite and are above the laws the laws the rest of us must follow   Why would they worry about guns flooding the country, the first-time people peacefully protested near their homes they got congress to immediately pass a law against it enforced by the very police they constantly protect from any civilian threats, even though congress cannot pass laws that protect school kids from mass shootings.   9 court justices got a law passed right away no delay; many kids killed so what.   This is no longer a country governed by the people for the people, it is corporations ruling over government to support profit at all costs.    Ron and I have made sure our passports are up to date and we will be using our funds to move as soon as sex between consenting same sex couples are illegal and our marriage becomes a joke in Florida, the home of the desperate to president maga “Don’t say gay” attack Disney for being too tolerant DeathSantis makes us gays illegal.   Oh yes that is the same DeathSantis that recently tried to say with a straight face that Florida wouldn’t tolerate attacks on gay people as he celebrated the Pulse night club massacre.   This is on every tRump voter.   This is on every Republican voter.    This is on every religious person who voted for the Republican over the Democrat.    Thank you to each and every one of you for rolling the country back to the 1950s to enjoy your superiority.   Now give up your cell phones, smart TV’s, internet, GPS, and all the science advances, give up all the medical advances, just go back to live in that regressive world you assholes because you don’t deserve to live with the rest of us.   Thanks for putting the rights of others on the chopping block so you could have your god in everyone’s life and your fucking tax breaks so corporations and wealthy people pay nothing while the public work 3 or 4 jobs 60 to 80 hours a week to pay the corporate rent and buy food to eat.   Fuck this country.   By the way think you are a citizen because you were born in the US, that is also on the chopping block that many hard right conservatives want to get rid of.       Hugs 

From Clarence Thomas’s concurring opinion:

The Court’s abortion cases are unique, see ante, at 31–32, 66, 71–72, and no party has asked us to decide “whether our entire Fourteenth Amendment jurisprudence must be preserved or revised,” McDonald, 561 U. S., at 813 (opinion of THOMAS, J.).

Thus, I agree that “[n]othing in [the Court’s] opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion.” Ante, at 66.

For that reason, in future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell.

Curiously, no mention of “Loving v. Virginia.” How convenient for him and Ginni.

Honestly, I don’t think he cares. Republicans are so blinded by their hate that they never think through how their actions might somehow affect themselves.

That doesn’t mean someone or some group won’t try to overturn that. Remember, the conservative majority doesn’t *need* Thomas to accomplish its goals.

Women, we fought hard for our liberation. We will have to do it again.
LGBTQI+ brothers, sisters, and allies, we fought hard to safeguard our rights and lives during the AIDS epidemic. We will have to do it again.

We have it in us. Everyone else, join us or get the fuck out of our way.

  1. The thing is, the Republican Party is primarily made up of conservatives, that are, way too, stubborn to change, and, with no radical supreme court justices to balance out the votes, all of the more, debatable issues are not going to get passed, and, the rights of women, LGBT, and, other more radical matters won’t get passed. We women have no rights.

    1. Hello taurusingemini. Yes the public supported a woman’s right to control her own body. Everything you said is so true. The Republican party no longer even pretends to want democracy or listen to the public. The Republican part believes they should rule, that they are somehow smarter or better than the public. Women are going to die because of this ruling by the SCOTUS and it seems their lives don’t matter, the only life that matters now is the one the woman is forced to carry to term regardless of how it harms their body. Hugs

    1. Hello The Balsamean. Oh yes but I think a couple of the others are very close in creepiness. How we ended up with rapist and religious fanatics on the court is stunning to me. Show that what the Republicans think of the courts and the law is that the courts should rule on issues not by the constitution or laws, but on Republican cultural ideology. Courts should enforce the religious right only and that the Republican party should be the rulers of the country. Hugs

  2. This is yet another reason to ask Justice Thomas to step down from the bench … first his sl*tty wife has a large role in the attempt to overturn a fair and free election, and now he is single-handedly deciding the values by which he wishes the entire nation of 330 million people to be constrained. Maybe we should start changing, “Lock him up … lock him up” Hugs

    1. Hello Jill I agree. The republican party wants the country ruled by them and their way of thinking on issues, not the wishes or will of the people or even what the constitution means. There is no validity to the current courts that have been stacked with illegitimate judges. Hugs

      1. Given their recent decisions, I have lost most all respect for the Court … for 70 years I have had the utmost respect for the U.S. Supreme Court, and today I have very little. I will NOT bow to the wishes of the bigoted, religious fanatics in the Republican Party. If I were younger, I think I’d go get pregnant just so I could have an abortion and thumb my nose at them! Okay, okay … perhaps that’s a bit extreme … but I’m furious. Sigh. Hugs
