Fascism Forever

I wish I was making this up.
High school is forever, the saying goes. And for Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch, it's proving particularly true today.
Gorsuch both created and headed the "Fascism Forever Club" at Georgetown Preparatory School, which he graduated from in 1985, The Daily Mail reports. The school is a selective all-boys Jesuit prep school, and now reportedly costs day students $30,000 annually and boarding students $50,000.
"In political circles, our tireless President Gorsuch's 'Fascism Forever Club' happily jerked its knees against the increasingly 'left-wing' tendencies of the faculty," a Georgetown Prep high school yearbook states, according to The Daily Mail.

The report was published just over 24 hours after President Donald Trump announced Gorsuch as his Supreme Court nominee from the White House, and – regardless of Gorsuch's intent in using the term in his high school club's name – comes at a time when accusations of fascism have been aimed at Trump.

Gorsuch, a federal appellate court judge, is facing left-wing opposition in the wake of his nomination, and has received criticism from the likes of Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., as well as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Liberal activist organization People For the American Way also has launched an ad painting Gorsuch as anti-women's rights and pro-Wall Street.

Conservatives, meanwhile, have hailed Gorsuch – who holds degrees from Columbia and Oxford universities, as well as Harvard Law School – as an outstanding legal thinker and a worthy successor to the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Let's hear it for Hitler Youth! They're so adorable.

  1. Isn't John McCain to blame for all this cray cray shit going on. He put Sarah Palin front and center and gave her an open mike. She said the same goofy shit Trump says making her Trump with tits, or is he Palin with a little . . . Honestly, is there any difference between the 2? We will save the discussion of whether the democrats were asleep at the switch for another post.
    As for Gorsuch, he has to retract and rebuke his youthful statements about being a fascist. Young and stupid is ok when you are young and stupid, but you gotta be able to confess error.

  2. Even a slight amount of research confirms the fascism forever club was a prank.

  4. Rainbowland? I wanna go! Are you sure that's not just NYC, the greatest city in the world, on Pride Week?

    Sure, high school high jinks! Who could hold it against him?! Funny funny! LOL

    And it's not like this factoid is being served up on the backdrop of Holocaust denialsim, White Supremacy , or the demonetization of immigrants or a religious minority.

    Because if it were, gosh darn ~ that might get me worrying.

  6. As I said with seriousness, I really don't hold high school behavior against adults. I hold adult behavior against adults and that's where Trump troubles me the most.

    The question of which is worse, Trump or Palin is one I have thought of. Between the 2, Palin is certainly the better person. Both are incompetent. But Palin is aware of her incompetence and has made some attempts at educating herself on the issues. Trump thinks he's brilliant just the way he is.

    Also, I don't know of anyone on the record saying Palin grabbed their pussy.
