Kind of like you and anything that doesn't support blacks as victims.

Interestingly enough, I forget who it was but I believe a conservative legal scholar the other day was saying the constitutionality of that law might not pass muster.

Certainly the right to protest is fundamental to free speech.  It's protected speech.  And it can be argued people have a right to be heard and express their views.  Can't just assume the exercise of those rights defaults to intimidation or coercion.

Protests outside the court I don't think anyone disagrees are plainly constitutional.  I don't think protesting outside someone's home, for any reason, should be tolerated (consider the neighbors, for starters).  But I don't think that's inherently illegal, as it was repeatedly tested [without recourse] during the summer of BLM.

Just saying if you can protest outside the Governor's home, it's seems like there should be a way to do it legally outside a SCOTUS justice home.  And it's arguably no different if the duly-elected Governor is about to sign a controversial bill.  I don't agree with either, but I'm not sure where the law or constitution could make a distinction.


Fully agree.  The peaceful protests should occur near the place of work for the justices, judges, and politicians; never, ever at their homes.

So apparently the Dems hired a tv producer for the prime time kangaroo court tonight.  Every major network is covering it (surprisingly including Fox, probably to spin and deflect for their viewers).

This is a new low in kabuki theater.  Hard to imagine if things were reversed that the networks would devote primetime coverage.  To be fair, I think almost every network otherwise had re-runs tonight.

But polling seems to indicate people aren't that concerned with the unscheduled tour on Jan. 6.  I just can't see this event taking place if the media was remotely fair and impartial.



Primetime, made-for-TV, mob justice.  I sure hope we can turn this ship around; where we're headed is not a good place, at all.

Not sure if this even belongs in the progressive thread because technically it seems progressives would support the letter in question and the right would disagree. Anyway I don’t know where u work but would you be able to circulate how your boss sucked and pass it around the company for others to sign and stay employed ?  Ur whole post seems flawed

Dude, the progressives are the idiots that wrote the letter. They got rightfully fired. The progressive dumbasses in life and on Twitter are going to try (and did) argue it was free speech, when it is not. Thought it was pretty obvious.

It's hard to fathom how small your "bubble" would have to be to think you could write that letter and not get fired.

Similar just happened to a NYT journo that kept trashing management on Twitter for how it chose to discipline a couple of writers.  Despite being an unhinged lunatic, I was still surprised NYT had the guts to fire her.

Think it was the Washington Post, if you're talking about that Felicia chick who seems to be a total nightmare for anyone, anywhere to associate with for any time. I mean, demanding discipline against a co-worker for retweeting a throwaway joke (all women are bi -- either polar or sexual) and then going on a Twitter rampage against the whole company when another co-worker or two took the "maybe you should step back and chill a bit" tactic towards her is definitely something. That gets even more wacky when you consider that the reporter she wanted destroyed for retweeting a joke had apparently been one of her strongest supporters a ways back when she was pissed off about something else happening there.

It's really the perfect opportunity to illustrate the hypocrisy of the left.

Well, the leak was 100% right. The decision also contradicts everything about settled law that the conservative justices stated in their confirmation hearings. 

Liberals screamed back in 2016 Roe v. Wade was going away, and they turned out being right. 

Also, Justice Thomas opinion, just being his, but is everything liberals fear, which is a roll back on other protections. 

Now, we have a land where it is have and have not states. It is about to be outlawed after 6 weeks here in Ohio with minimal to no exceptions.

I know my wife is concerned about her access here in Ohio.
