Antonin Scalia Dead at 79
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is dead. He was 79.
The governor of Texas made the announcement on Saturday. From NBC News:
“Justice Antonin Scalia was a man of God, a patriot, and an unwavering defender of the written Constitution and the Rule of Law. He was the solid rock who turned away so many attempts to depart from and distort the Constitution,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement. “We mourn his passing, and we pray that his successor on the Supreme Court will take his place as a champion for the written Constitution and the Rule of Law.”
I am speechless right now.
Scalia was as right-wing as it gets. This is such a game-changer moment in American history.
The next few months are going to be insane.
