Judge Neil Gorsuch is said to be a cardboard cutout of the late Antonin Scalia — the conservative Supreme Court Justice he’s set to replace.
And if that’s not a big enough red flag, the 49-year-old’s history of founding authoritarian nationalist societies may as well be a flashing, neon casino sign that says, “We’re fucked.”
Before he became a U.S. appellate judge, Gorsuch had quite the reputation while attending his exclusive prep school in the 1980s — and by that, we mean the reputation of a stuffy villain in a National Lampoon’s movie.
During his freshman year at Georgetown Preparatory, the politician founded the “Fascism Forever Club,” where he served as the president until he graduated in 1985. This was discovered by Dailymail.com.
The school yearbook described the Fascism Forever Club as an anti-faculty student group that waged war against the “liberal” views of the school administration, writing:
“In political circles, our tireless President Gorsuch’s ‘Fascism Forever Club’ happily jerked its knees against the increasingly “left-wing” tendencies of the faculty.”
That’s right. As a teenager, Gorsuch fought against his school’s faculty for being too progressive — and he did it with a smile! We just really hope they all wore matching “Fascism Forever” bracelets.
Aside from founding fascism clubs, Gorsuch’s early right-wing beliefs were revealed in additional yearbook photos — specifically, one of him reading William F. Buckley‘s conservative text Up from Liberalism.
Gorsuch listed his other student activities as “President of the Yard, Student Government” and “Lousy Spanish Student.” Oh, now we get why Trump likes him so much!
Gorsuch would be the youngest nominee to the Supreme Court in 25 years — which is also probably the same span of time he hopes to take this country back with the help of President Tiny Hands.
What do YOU think of Trump’s pick?
