In a bizarre twist, some people who are studying the law and court precedent have announced they will be protesting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh because they claim he is illegitimate.
Weird, we know.
They probably realize their non-acceptance of reality will do nothing to change it, but they are taking three days away from their classes to express they do not support Kavanaugh.
“Friends, we are in the middle of a national emergency,” the open letter from their “Strike Against Kavanaugh” read.
Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the Supreme Court. We cannot accept a system that empowers a man who repeatedly lied under oath and a judiciary review process that only performs a sham of an investigation into his misconduct.
Here’s the kicker:
We do not recognize Kavanaugh as a legitimate member of the United States Supreme Court.

The group argued that Kavanaugh will not be a “champion for indigenous peoples’ rights” and would subsequently make decisions on the court to harm them and their rights.
“In addition to native peoples, a broad intersection of communities will be harmed by Kavanaugh taking a seat on the highest court, including survivors of sexual assault, people who need reproductive health care, and immigrant communities,” the letter read.
Some people online mocked the protest as childish and said these law students frankly do not understand the law:
Your non-acceptance of reality won’t change it.
Your rebellion against legitimate authority will result in your misfortune.

So a bunch of law students are guaranteed to never hold a law clerk position for a SCOTUS Justice? Seems like a good idea to limit your employment opportunities right out of the gate lol.

That should take care of that.

Just checked…. he’s still a legit member of the Supreme Court. Maybe make it a 4 day strike next time.

What an abject embarrassment.

It does not matter if they recognize Kavanaugh or not, he is still a legitimate member of #SCOTUS. Their 3 day walkout will change nothing. SMDH

Not legitimate?? Because you don’t think so? Makes perfect sense to me!

While these students are claiming his illegitimacy, Kavanaugh is busy actually working and is already making an impact on the court.
Even before he started his duties as a Supreme Court justice, Kavanaugh announced that he would begin his term with only female clerks, the first to do so.
