Breaking News: Supreme Court Justice Scalia Found Dead At 79

Conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead today at a luxury ranch in West Texas, of natural causes. At 79, he has been the longest Supreme Court justice to serve, having been appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986.

Scalia was a notable enemy of a woman’s choice to control her body, having fought to revoke Roe Vs. Wade for most of his career. He voted to award George W. Bush the Presidency after he cheated his way to a win; and had been a strong defender of the originalist interpretation of the Second Amendment. A curious man, he had been described as an “anachronism of an anachronism”. He made headlines recently for implying that young blacks didn’t need to go to the best schools, because they aren’t as smart as whites.

He was particularly strongly against the legalization of same-sex marriage, notably saying that intimacy and spirituality were not freedoms:

 “Really? Who ever thought that intimacy and spirituality (whatever that means) were freedoms? And if intimacy is, one would think Freedom of Intimacy is abridged rather than expanded by marriage. Ask the nearest hippie. Expression, sure enough, is a freedom, but anyone in a long-lasting marriage will attest that that happy state constricts, rather than expands, what one can prudently say.”

With his untimely death, President Barack Obama will nominate a new Supreme Court justice, which will flip the majority opinion to lean towards liberalism and progress. Before the body was even cold, House Republicans have already declared their intention to block whoever the President would nominate, in a callous and uncalled for show of partisan obstinance.
