Liberals cheer ‘hero’ SCOTUS leaker who shattered court norms: ‘F**k it! Let’s burn this place down’

Several prominent liberals took to social media to praise the anonymous individual who leaked the Supreme Court’s reported draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Monday night, which appeared to show that the Court intends to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The unprecedented leak revealed that the majority of justices had reportedly agreed in a December vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, which protects abortion as a constitutional right, though the vote is not yet final and may still change, according to Politico. Some liberals praised the move as a heroic last-ditch effort to derail the Court’s decision.

“As we started discussing here, it is shocking both in substance and also shocking in terms of what it means about the court, and what it means about the stakes here that someone was willing to do this,” MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said late Monday. “It is just a remarkable thing.”

Some liberals saw the public outcry over the leak as a good thing, noting that it could put pressure on justices to reconsider their decisions.

“Is a brave clerk taking this unpredecented step of leaking a draft opinion to warn the country what’s coming in a last-ditch Hail Mary attempt to see if the public response might cause the Court to reconsider?” said Brian Fallon, executive director of the liberal group Demand Justice.

“All Democrats need to show the same urgency as the clerk who apparently risked his or her career to sound this alarm. Those on the inside know best how broken the institution is. We should listen,” Fallon added.

“Seriously, shout out to whoever the hero was within the Supreme Court who said ‘fuck it! Let’s burn this place down,’” wrote Ian Millhiser, a senior correspondent at Vox .

“A leak like this has never in the modern history of SCOTUS. It is a massive deal that someone thought the public deserved to see what was going on in their chambers. A hero,” Jezebel senior reporter Caitlin Cruz said.

Some legal experts speculated that the leak may have violated the law. Mike Davis, a former clerk for Justice Alito, said the leaker was likely guilty of felony obstruction of justice.

  1. Since Roe vs Wade the left have indiscriminately murdered 65+ million infants in the guise of a woman’s right. They practice unprotected sex, get knocked up, carry the infant to term in many cases and then at the last minute celebrate their liberation and murder with a tweet. And this is what the left stand for?

  2. “Let’s burn the place down”! Are you listening My Jokeless and Garlic head? This is a threat of domestic terrorism> Oh no, not like the threat of parents protesting at a school board meeting!
