Scalia Jokes Appear Online Within Minutes

February 13, 2016 – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the leading conservative voice on the nation’s high court, died today at the age of 79. Within minutes of the news breaking, the internet was awash with frenzy, some of it clearly joyous. The Italian-American judge was appointed to the Supreme Court by Ronald Reagan in 1986 and became a conservative icon for his stance on issues ranging from guns to gay rights. His opinions, however, garnered countless critics, many of whom were out in force today:

Perhaps in response to criticism of the quick humor:

But for every quip, there was a similar response:

  1. Not that he gives a shit, because he’s dead, but he could have nipped all of this in the bud by retiring. Then people could get all of their celebration of his departure from the Supreme Court out of the way, and leave room for respectful reactions to his death.

    It’s not really reasonable to try to cheat people out of their opportunity to be cheerful about him not being on the Supreme Court anymore, just because it happened to coincide with him dying.

    1. The smell is probably from you not being able to tell an exit from an entrance.

    2. wow such politic. fuck scalia. he indeed fought a hard 30-year battle w social progress. that bahstud

  2. So as soon as he died the internet was making jokes about it. I find myself longing for some bad OBAMA jokes. i can’t speak for anyone else but to quote the author, That would send me into a joyous frenzy.

    1. Obama is his own running joke. How hilarious will it be when everything he has striven for will be overturned by congress or nullified by subsequent executive orders? Now THAT will be funny.

    1. That would require class, which progressive do not possess. In society or in common decency.

    2. That’s why Trump has declared Mexicans as rapists, and wants to ban all Muslims – Because it’s ‘classy’!

    3. I would never claim Trump is a conservative, as he is clearly not. He’s a spoiled, womanizing, racist, 1 percenter, who finds himself winning the GOP because the GOP offered up truly stupid candidates to run this year. People like Donald Trump don’t give a crap about the plight of everyday Americans.

      It’s like an educated adult standing in a room full of learning disabled toddlers, and declaring himself the ‘winner’. It is beyond ridiculous.

      NOTE: My ‘learning disabled’ comment above is NOT intended to slight, or to offend anyone who is learning disabled. I consider most Conservative and Republican voters to be VOLUNTARILY learning disabled because it has been easier in the USA to accept a patriotic ‘sound bite’, than to stop and ask a few logical questions.

      Questions like:
      1. ‘Why did we let corporate America export our jobs? The Chinese did NOT TAKE our jobs, some old white American dudes. sitting on a board of directors exported our jobs.

      2. Why, in 2010, do 20% of the people hold approximately 88% of the net worth in the U.S. The top 1% alone hold 35% of all net worth.


    4. What happened to #3? By the way you can be a conservative while recognizing the above illustrates a serious issue. Trump has directly addressed outsourcing as a major problem and intends to fix it. He also recognizes the income inequality and the ability of the wealthy to buy elections and promises to fix that. Does that mean you’re going to vote Trump? I didn’t think so.

      The argument should be over how to fix it. If you haven’t noticed. Republicans are engaged in a bit of house cleaning as of late. Which is why you see all the “Republican party in turmoil!!!” headlines popping up everywhere with the liberal media monopoly.

      Did you see the power rankings of issues that voters feel are most important? Did you happen to see biased media coverage take the #1 slot? Some would say that the Democrat monopoly on mainstream media is a problem as well. Did you know that 93% of journalists donate primarily to Democrat campaigns and causes? Then you claim there is no bias.

      Democrats aren’t without their rebellion either. You’ve got Bernie as your insurgent and Hillary as your Queen just awaiting her anointing and coronation day. Salon put out a nice piece saying why Democrats should leave her behind. It is a shame you likely won’t listen to their analysis. When can you remember in history a candidate being investigated for national security crimes as well as an expansion into the public corruption track? Do you really think she has a chance? The only reason she is in this race is because her chances of receiving leniency from the Obama administration will increase exponentially the closer it seems she’ll come to the Oval Office.

      For the record I’m not a Conservative tried and true. I’m a Libertarian and have been registered as an Independent voter for the past 18 years. Never registered Republican. I don’t participate in their primary. I have remained unaffiliated. I’m the guy that the campaigns want to impress. They don’t have my vote locked down. So far, all I can say is, Trump or Bernie for me. I’m not a big fan of socialism or Trump’s nationalist fervor, but it would be worth it to see the look on people’s faces when either of them were sworn in.

      In short, I want the establishment of both parties to be eradicated. They’re a festering boil on the face of American politics. I hope Bloomberg gets in it too. I half hope that the GOP screws Trump and I already know Bernie will be screwed because DWS will not allow anyone but Hillary. We’ll have a blast upending this sham. Just think, maybe we can rewrite the Constitution and just abolish the SCOTUS, Congress, and the Executive Branch as well. We’ll replace all three with coin tosses and card draws and just elect a Coin-Flipper in Chief and his Vice can flip the cards. Because Democracy!

    5. First off, I’m a Bernie supporter who will vote for Hillary to prevent a Trump, Cruz, Rubio or whatever GOP clown.

      Nobodys gonna drop any RACIST claims as long as racism continues it’s regrowth.

      According to civilrights.org;
      The number of hate groups operating in the United States continued to rise in 2008 and has grown by 54 percent since 2000 — an increase fueled last year by immigration fears, a failing economy, and the successful campaign of Barack Obama, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC identified 926 hate groups active in 2008, up more than four percent from the 888 groups in 2007 and far above the 602 groups documented in 2000.

      “Barack Obama’s election has inflamed racist extremists who see
      it as another sign that their country is under siege by nonwhites,” said Mark Potok, editor of the Intelligence Report, a SPLC quarterly investigative journal that monitors the radical right. “The idea of a black man in the White House has given white supremacists a real platform on which to recruit.”

      Also, look at this frightening scare fest: https://www.splcenter.org/issues/hate-and-extremism

      Lastly, Trump DOES NOT have more blacks and Latinos than Hillary or Sanders – Not even close. So. . . Just, honestly. Be honest.

    6. SPLC is a partisan organization. I’ll take their statistics with the same grain of salt you take the NRA’s. How do you expect anyone to take them seriously as a fair arbiter when they plaster a giant picture of Donald Trump on their annual Hate Group Census report. I mean c’mon. That’s racist in and of itself? Why no pictures of the NBPP? Are they all on loan to Bey?

      Sorry about the seeming dishonesty. I meant he has more black and hispanic support than any other GOP candidate. Which is why I only included Rubio and Cruz’ support for comparison. If more minorities support a fat, white, rich guy than two Hispanics combined, or a successful African American doctor, then what does that say about Trump’s supposed racism?

      In fact, Trump has more black support likely than any GOP candidate since the days of reconstruction. The facts simply don’t square with the charges of racism. Period. Or Sexism. Trump hires more female executives than male ones and I bet if you examined salaries, he probably pays them commensurate salaries. Don’t confuse me as a Trump supporter though, I despise the man personally. Though he has gotten horrible press coverage. Which is understandable since the press gets its talking points from the DNC and DWS.

      You know precisely why Democrats have the black and hispanic support. It isn’t because of your tepid support for 1960’s civil rights legislation either. It’s the gifts you promise the poor from the public treasury. The poor who happen to be disproportionately made up of minorities. The same reason the GOP has the vast support of Wall Street. Though Obama has given any Republican a run for their money as far as Wall Street support goes.

      PS, that hate map is scary!!! Though I like how it cuts off my state.

    1. At least he’s less likely to die of AIDS than some people. Eh? Watching my gay uncle die of it. It’s a horrible nasty disease if you don’t control it with medicine. Have you been tested lately?
