FALSE FLAG: The Left’s Fake Outrage Over Justice Alito’s Wife Flying The Flag Upside-Down

This is all about one thing and one thing only ... and it has zero to do with the flag or J6.

In case you missed it, the Left has discovered that an “insurrectionist” symbol was on display at the house of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito in January of 2021.

Here’s the New York Times with this breaking news story almost three-and-a-half years after the incident:

[Link to the archived version of the NYT article here.]

Justice Samuel Alito sought to head off mounting criticism Friday over a report that an inverted American flag was flown at his house in January 2021, telling Fox News that his wife hoisted the symbol of discontent in response to profane signs in the neighborhood.
Alito said that a neighbor had posted a sign saying “F**k Trump” near a school bus stop and then a sign attacking his wife, Martha-Ann Alito. On a walk, the justice told Fox, the Alitos got into an argument with the neighbor, who used the term “c**t” at one point. His wife then flew the inverted flag.
A growing chorus of Democratic lawmakers and ethics experts lobbed criticism at the Supreme Court in response to the report and demanded that Alito recuse himself from cases involving the 2020 presidential election and January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol.

Here’s CNN’s Abby Phillips talking to the author of the article, Jodi Kantor, last week:

So, why did it take them this long to report it? We’ll get to that in a second. First, let’s be clear about one thing — it’s not really about the flag at all.

The left doesn’t give a damn about the flag — quite often they are offended by it.

Here’s New York Times editorial board member and MSNBC analyst, Mara Gay saying that she was “disturbed” when she saw American flags in Long Island shortly after Memorial Day the same year that Mrs. Alito flew the flag upside-down.

Here’s some random anti-MAGA leftist upset about seeing American flags at the beach this past weekend.

Anytime a leftist is able to, they’ll replace the flag with a symbol of their cause.

All over America, the Kampus Keffiyeh Komrades are yanking down the Stars and Stripes on college campuses and replacing it with the Palestinian flag.

Let’s not forget how the campus intifada were visibly upset and shaken when a group of Chad Frat Boys took down their Palestinian flag and replaced Old Glory to her proper position.

We’re just weeks away from June when the ideological colonial Trans/Rainbow flag is flown prominently everywhere — including the White House.

The current administration has no problem with the Pride Progress flag taking the center spot of prominence at the People’s House while a gender-confused man yanks down his top and shakes his naked, fake boobs as part of his TikTok “influencing.”

Here is the response to the possible Flag Code violation by the House Minority Leader, a lame Dollar General version of Obama.

The guy that is a prominent leader in the Jackass Party is “unfamiliar” with the way the flag should be displayed and is blaming “MAGA Republicans” for making an issue out of nothing.

As lawyer and YouTuber Viva Frei says, this is just “confession through projection.”

Which brings us right back to why “Alito Flag-gate” has become an issue now. This is quite similar to how the Left continues to attack Justice Clarence Thomas because his wife Ginny has political views and works in GOP politics.

This is because the weirdos on the far-Left absolutely despise Justice Alito for a couple of reasons: 1. He’s an originalist; and 2. he was the one who wrote the Dobbs decision and they will never forgive him for the overturning of Roe.

The 2024 election surely has something to do with it as they continue to attack Trump with lawfare and are now openly stating that Justice Alito needs to recuse himself from any J6-related cases, and a petition calling for his ouster has tens of thousands of signatures.

This story was written to show a photo of Alito’s home — not that the activist Left didn’t know it already, they’ve been protesting since the draft of the Dobbs decision was leaked — and put the Justice and his family at risk.

Some extremists on the Left would be fine if something untoward happened to the Alitos. And maybe not even the “far” Left. After all, the Biden DOJ didn’t do a damned thing to stop the protests outside of Justices’ homes in 2022, even after an armed man was taken into custody outside of Justice Kavanaugh’s home and admitted he went there with the intention to kill him. But hey, it would’ve been the Justice’s fault for being on the “wrong side of history” or something.

These activists don’t even hold the Justices on their side in any regard. Remember how some of them were angry that RBG died while Trump was in office instead of retiring during the Obama administration? Or how there was an organized campaign to push Justice Stephen Breyer to retire? They’re now doing the same thing with Obama’s “wise Latina” Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

All of this faux outrage over the upside-down flag at the Alito residence has nothing to do with the flag, January 6, “Stop the Steal”, or “insurrection” — it’s about watching their power in the Judicial Branch slip away from them as the conservative-leaning Supreme Court makes decisions based on the law rather than feelings or “emanations and penumbras” in the Constitution. That is why they’re trying to hobble a SCOTUS Justice. They were able to legislate from the Bench for decades. That era has been over for a while now, but they’re having a very hard time letting it go.

What they’re dreading is that they’re going to have to make their appeals to voters directly because they can no longer rely on the Supreme Court to enforce their policies from on high. And with the way Trump’s poll numbers are looking these days, it appears that voters aren’t liking what the Dems are pushing.

Anytime a Leftist talking head on MSNBC says that the Alitos are “insurrectionists” or whatever, you can disregard that as the nonsense that it is. These are disingenuous ravings of far-leftists desperate to hold onto power by any means necessary.

Just like with all the lawfare against Trump, they waited until just before the election to go after Justice Alito. And we still have months to go. They’re going to continue to find excuses to target the other conservative Justices and anyone who supports Trump. Be prepared.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
