Conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Is Confirmed Dead At 79, Left Rejoices
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has been pronounced dead in Texas while on a hunting trip on Saturday according to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
Wildly unpopular among the liberal left, and to anyone who believes in gay rights, women’s rights and well, human rights in general, Scalia’s death hasn’t been mourned too much at all, which begs the question: is our celebration of his death “too soon”?
I’m seeing MANY folks chant “ding dong the witch is dead!” all over social media.
Many comedians and political influencers have taken to Twitter to rejoice Scalia’s death by natural causes.
Instead of flying the American flag at half staff this week, can fed buildings just fly the gay flag? #Scalia

Scalia said me and my friends shouldn't have families recognized under the law so you can keep your "wait til the body is cold."

Here's what I remember of #Scalia on the bench:
1.Gays are animals
2. Blacks are stupid
3. Women are baby-killing whores
4. Corps are people

My condolences to the Koch brothers on their loss. #Scalia

Tons of us are also hopeful: pointing out how Scalia’s death now opens up the opportunity for Obama to elect a democratic Supreme Court Justice as a replacement, before he leaves office.

I hope that Obama nominates a 40 year old lawyer that will serve for the next 60 years. That'll certainly change the Supreme Court.

Look, we can all mourn and not mourn as we please right? He made it so many people couldn’t live how they wanted to live, so maybe “not being sad” this time around is ok.
