Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Founded ‘Fascism Together’ At His Posh Prep School

Once again the Daily Mail’s online edition defies the paper’s image and comes up with a story that will infuriate conservatives and delight everyone else. It seems Trump’s new man on the Supreme Court was not only a spoiled brat but a Nazi-leaning spoiled brat. Enjoy:

EXCLUSIVE: Trump’s Supreme Court pick founded and led club called ‘Fascism Forever’ at his elite all-boys Washington prep school

DailyMail.com reveals how Gorsuch set up club called ‘Fascism Forever’ at his prep school outside D.C. in protest at staff’s left-wing tendencies

Father of two, 49, prayed with president and Scalia’s son, a Catholic priest, before being named as nominee on Tuesday night

Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch founded and led a student group called the ‘Fascism Forever Club’ at his elite high school, DailyMail.com can reveal.

The club was set up to rally against the ‘left-wing tendencies’ of his professors while attending a Jesuit all-boys preparatory high school near Washington D.C.

The name may be inconvenient for a Supreme Court nominee facing a tough confirmation battle. However it also shows the depth of Gorscuch’s right-wing credentials – and his penchant for mischief while attending his exclusive prep school in the 1980s.

President Donald Trump nominated Gorsuch, a 49-year-old U.S. appellate judge, to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Tuesday.

Gorsuch founded the ‘Fascism Forever Club’ during his freshman year at Georgetown Preparatory, a now-$30,000-a-year private Jesuit school that is one of the most selective in the United States.

He served as president until he graduated in 1985, according to his senior yearbook.

One yearbook photo showed the high school senior kicking back in a chair in a button-down shirt and tie while reading William F. Buckley’s 1959 book ‘Up from Liberalism’, a key text of the conservative movement

The yearbook described the ‘Fascism Forever Club’ as an anti-faculty student group that battled against the ‘liberal’ views of the school administration.

‘In political circles, our tireless President Gorsuch’s “Fascism Forever Club” happily jerked its knees against the increasingly “left-wing” tendencies of the faculty,’ said the yearbook.

It is not the only example of Gorsuch’s early conservative political views. One yearbook photo showed the high school senior kicking back in a chair in a button-down shirt and tie while reading William F. Buckley’s 1959 book ‘Up from Liberalism’, a key text of the conservative movement.

Another photo shows Gorsuch leaning over a railing with his tie undone while sticking his tongue out at the camera.

At 49 years old, Gorsuch would be the youngest nominee to the Supreme Court in 25 years. He currently lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife

Gorsuch was listed as the editor and founder of The Federalist Paper at Columbia University, where he chose a quote from Henry Kissinger to go next to his photo.

He listed his other student activities as ‘President of the Yard, Student Government’ and ‘Lousy Spanish Student.’ He said he was also president of a group called the ‘Committee to reform The Beast.’

His senior quote was: ‘I am not an alkie; I never wrote a debate case!’

Gorsuch is shown in another senior photo waving his hand mid-speech outside one of the campus buildings while wearing a blue and black tie. In another, he is pictured at the bottom of a six-boy pyramid while balancing another student on his shoulders.

Georgetown Preparatory is one of the top all-boys prep schools in the United States. Former students include Sen. Chris Dodd, a handful of U.S. congressmen, and multiple members of the Kennedy family. Current tuition is $30,000 a year for day students and $50,000 a year for boarding students.

At 49 years old, Gorsuch would be the youngest nominee to the Supreme Court in 25 years. He currently lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife, Marie Louise.

Gorsuch’s conservative credentials are well-established and he was included on a list of potential Supreme Court picks approved by the Heritage Foundation

But the Supreme Court nominee (pictured front, left as a little boy) has also drawn criticism from top Democrats who vowed to oppose his nomination

Gorsuch (pictured) is not the first Republican presidential appointment in his family

His mother, Anne Gorsuch, was appointed as Environmental Protection Agency administrators by President Ronald Reagan in 1981.

Gorsuch’s conservative credentials are well-established and he was included on a list of potential Supreme Court picks approved by the Heritage Foundation. His nomination to the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump has been praised by prominent right-leaning groups, from the Faith and Freedom Coalition to the National Rifle Association. Ralph Reed, founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition

But it has also drawn criticism from top Democrats who vowed to oppose his nomination.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has already said she will object to Gorsuch’s appointment, saying he was chosen ‘by far right activist groups that were financed by big business interests.’

Rep. Nancy Pelosi called Gorsuch ‘well outside the mainstream of American legal thought’ and Sen. Bernie Sanders said the nominee will have to ‘explain his hostility to women’s rights, support of corporations over workers and opposition to campaign finance reform.’

Gorsuch is not the first Republican presidential appointment in his family. His mother, Anne Gorsuch, was appointed as Environmental Protection Agency administrators by President Ronald Reagan in 1981.

While at the agency, Anne Gorsuch oversaw massive budget cuts at the EPA and attempted rollbacks of the Clean Air Act.

She was also reportedly quite glamorous – the Washington Post described her as a woman with ‘television-star looks and perfect manicures’ who ‘wore fur coats and smoked two packs of Marlboros a day.’

Anne Gorsuch came under fire for her conservative policies, and served for just two years before resigning after clashing with congress over subpoenaed records.

  2. Where were all these so called investigators when Obama was picking his staff? Seems like he got a free pass. This super scrutinizing of the Trump admin. is tiring.
    I only hope when things go good (and i’m confident they will) that these so called investigators report that!
    Also these Hollywood types or should I say rich elites will have Trump to thank when their portfolios start rising- which i’m sure they already have. Just some food for thought.

  3. After months of caterwauling hysteria, don’t you begin to think that this relentless flood of “everyone who isn’t Che Guevara is just like Hitler” stories begin to merit some degree of skepticism?

    Look at the other clubs Gorsuch listed with “Fascism Forever.” He was a conservative student, so the leftist students called him a fascist, so he joked about it. This is a judge with ten largely uncontroversial years on the appellate bench, and a reputation for restraining police power. He’s not a fascist; he’s a skeptic of state power. The Trump hysteria is long past being silly. After “he paid hookers to piss on him in Obama’s hotel bed!” I decided to tune this shit out entirely. The American political press has lost their minds.

    The irony is that the hysteria and the breathless announcement of MAJOR STORIES!!!! that are debunked ten minutes later is that the self-neutering press is making Trump far less accountable. It’s horrifying to watch.

    • debunked? what was debunked? challenged is not the same as debunked. as for trump, this is a man who makes fun of disabled journalists. i am a disabled journalist and so i have a dog in this fucking fight……

    • just to expand on my previous comment. like every disabled person I too have been mocked and made fun of. but like most disabled people this mostly happened to me when i was a kid and the mocker was usually a child as well. children can be horribly cruel but as they age and mature they realise such behaviour is inexcusable and they stop doing it. but when you encounter an adult, like trump, doing it you know you are dealing with someone who is seriously sick; with that comes the knowledge if they are capable of mocking a disabled person they invariably have similar views about other vulnerable minorities, like mexicans, blacks, american indians and jews. they have the same set of views as fascists, looking down on the weak like they are insects. they are like kids who pulled the wings off flies and are still doing it in adulthood. and i suspect the people around him are much the same. they are certainly anti-semitic and racist. they have to be opposed.

  4. Donald Trump is sometimes grotesquely insensitive, and an obvious narcissist. But none of that speaks to the claim that Neil Gorsuch is “Nazi-leaning.”

    Hysteria.
