It has now been ten months since America was told: “15-days to flatten the curve.”
Americans are now suffering from virus fatigue and wondering when the unconstitutional mask mandates will end.
And now Justice Alito just made this shocking admission about coronavirus.
In a recent interview with USA Today, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito discussed the controversy that arose last November after he spoke at the Federalist Society and blasted COVID lockdowns as an assault on religious liberty.
Justice Alito told USA Today that his statements shouldn’t have taken anyone by surprise, given the main points in his speech all came from opinions he’d personally written or joined.
“Virtually every substantive point in the Federalist Society speech was taken from one of my published opinions or an opinion I joined,” Alito stated.
However, Alito did admit that the blowback from the Left did not surprise him.
Senator Elizabeth Warren even went as far as to call Alito a political hack.
In the speech, Alito was critical of the length and severity of the COVID lockdowns. He said, “We have never before seen restrictions as severe, extensive, and prolonged.”
He went on to call the lockdowns a “constitutional stress test,” saying the church closures only served to accelerate the attacks on religious liberty that had already begun in many blue states.
“The COVID crisis has served as a sort of constitutional stress test, and in doing so, it has highlighted disturbing trends that were already present before the virus struck,” Alito added.
During the height of the pandemic, Churches were being kept closed by liberal Democrat Governors. In contrast, strip clubs, liquor stores, and Planned Parenthood buildings were kept open throughout the lockdowns.
Justice Alito gave a voice to the frustration being felt by so many Americans right now.
Now those same Americans are wondering just when the Supreme Court will take up a case and rule these endless lockdowns unconstitutional.
