Judge Alito also flew a riot flag at his beach house last summer

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito had his excuse for flying a flag in support of the insurrection shattered when it was reported that another flag in support of Trump’s insurrection flew at his beach house last summer.

The New York Times reported:

Last summer, two years after an inverted American flag fell outside the home of Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. was flying in Virginia, another provocative symbol was displayed at his New Jersey vacation home, according to interviews and photos.

This time it was the “Appeal to Heaven” flag, which, like the inverted American flag, was carried by rioters at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Also known as the Pine Tree flag, it dates back to the Revolutionary War. War, but has been largely forgotten until recent years and is now a symbol of support for former President Donald J. Trump, for a religious component of the ‘Stop the Steal’ campaign and for an effort to overthrow the US government to reform in Christian terms.

The New York Times has photos, witnesses and even a Google Street View photo of the flag flying at Alito’s summer home. The excuse Judge Alito offered related to a neighborhood dispute after the 2020 election, and the judge tried to pin his wife with the upside-down flag.

The truth is emerging that a Supreme Court justice is publicly supporting Trump’s efforts to overthrow the United States government. There are no extenuating factors or excuses. Samuel Alito supports the destruction of American democracy. Judge Alito is not behaving like a neutral lawyer, but like a radical right-wing political activist.

The Supreme Court majority is a threat to democracy, as Alito shows with SCOTUS that reforms are urgent and essential.
