Democrats’ media allies once again think they’ve nailed Justice Alito on something damning

The woman behind a 2021 false flag incident in Virginia managed to catch Alito on tape last week bemoaning political polarization.

Undaunted by weeks of duds, exponents of the public-private campaign to neutralize Justice Samuel Alito on the U.S. Supreme Court believe they’ve finally got their hands on a bombshell: an audio recording wherein Alito can be heard both expressing a hope for healing in the face of political polarization and acknowledging that in the culture war underway, one side might ultimately prevail.

This time around, the sensational headlines were made not by Obama hagiographer Jodi Kantor at the New York Times but rather by leftist blogger Lauren Windsor, a self-described “advocacy journalist” on the team at Robert Creamer’s Democrat-aligned Democracy Partners who helped the Lincoln Project stage a fake white supremacist rally in 2021 to smear then-candidate Glenn Youngkin ahead of the Virginia gubernatorial election.

Pretending to be a religious conservative at the Supreme Court Historical Society’s annual dinner on June 3, Windsor approached and surreptitiously recorded brief conversations with Justice Alito and his wife, Martha-Ann Alito.

As with the various flag stories pushed by the Times and other liberal publications, Windsor’s apparent aim — and that of Rolling Stone, the libelous publication first provided the audio recordings, which are now on X — is to paint Alito as ideologically compromised and incapable of dealing with cases related to the 2020 election and the Jan. 6 protests as well as regarding the question of former President Donald Trump’s immunity in U.S. v. Donald Trump.

The trouble for Windsor and other Democratic-aligned public-private campaigners is, once again, that notwithstanding their framing and manufactured hoopla, the recording is relatively benign. In fact, it undermines the public-private campaigner’s previous narrative and reveals Justice Alito has no aspirations of weaponizing the high court, even against criminal leakers.

Windsor, taping Alito without his consent — legal in D.C., which is a one-party consent state — suggested at the outset that her imaginary husband implored her to “tell Justice Alito that he is a fighter and we appreciate him and he has all the grit.”

After blowing more smoke, Windsor raised the matter of political polarization and how to repair it.

“Considering everything that’s been going on in the past year, you know, as a Catholic and as someone who, like, really cherishes my faith, I just don’t know. I don’t know that we can negotiate with the left in the way that needs to happen for the polarization to end,” said Windsor. “I think that it’s a matter of like, winning.”

Justice Alito said, “I think you’re probably right. On one side or the other, one side or the other is going to win. I don’t know.”

“I mean, there can be a way of working a way of living together peacefully,” continued the justice. “But it’s difficult, you know, because there are differences on fundamental things that really can’t be compromised. They really can’t be compromised. It’s not like you’re going to split the difference.”

In response to Justice’s Alito’s observation regarding the incommensurability between contemporary liberal and rightist worldviews, Windsor stated, “It’s just, I think that the solution really is like winning the moral argument. Like, people in this country who believe in God have got to keep fighting for that, to return our country to a place of godliness.”

Justice Alito responded, “I agree with you. I agree with you.”

Upon the justice’s supposedly controversial affirmation that the country should aspire toward spiritual purity and virtue, the remainder of the first audio clip concluded with Windsor bloviating.

In a second recording, apparently taken last year, Windsor again asked Justice Alito about how to remedy political polarization in America, to which he responded, “I wish I knew. I don’t know. It’s easy to blame the media, but I do blame them because they do nothing but criticize us and so they have really eroded trust in the court.”

“I don’t know, I really don’t know,” continued Justice Alito. “American citizens in general need to work on this, to try to heal this polarization because it’s very dangerous. I do believe it’s very dangerous.”

When Windsor began to beat around the bush about possible judicial activism, Justice Alito said, “I don’t think it’s something we can do. … We have a very defined role and we need to do what we’re supposed to do. But this is a bigger problem. This is way above us.”

What? You’re saying Justice Alito doesn’t like the political polarization in the country? KICK HIS ASS OFF!!!

This is how Democrats “respect” the courts. Because they can’t be 100% sure the Supreme Court will always decide the way the far left demands, they try to subversively undercut and destroy the individual justices they don’t like. It didn’t work when Schumer sicced a violent crowd on Justices to intimidate them into supporting the unconstitutional Roe v Wade, so they now employ different tactics. Still failing, though.

Oh its so much worse, he actually said he cherished his faith!
He suggested that only God could fix the satanic weaponization of this administration, and he had to not be an activist.
His wife is a little live wire, I like her.

So, he’s a Christian who stands for limited government.
Many of us remember when the entirety of our three branches of government agreed with this stance.
