Supreme Court Justice Scalia was ‘basically’ a member of Ku Klux Klan, Emory law professor claims’
(Hannah Grossman, Fox News) An Emory law professor, Darren Hutchinson, claimed Monday that the late conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who was known to be an “originalist” in his interpretation of the Constitution, was “basically” a member of a White supremacist group – the Ku Klux Klan.
Scalia served on the Supreme Court from 1986 until his death in 2016. He famously maintained a close relationship with Ruth Bader Ginsburg – a progressive justice who viewed the Constitution as a live document, with judicial opinions that were generally in stark contrast with Scalia’s.
Hutchinson, who joined Emory as a social justice fellow in April 2021, is academically focused on critical race theory, according to his curriculum vitae.
He said on Twitter, “Justice Scalia was basically a Klansman.” The professor believed that Scalia should have been impeached over an opinion he wrote in the 1987 case McCleskey v. Kemp…Supreme Court Justice Scalia was ‘basically’ a member of Ku Klux Klan, Emory law professor claims | Fox News
