The complainant responded, "James Comey is a patriot who served his country as the Director of the FBI. Also as a Republican, I find it insulting that conservatives would be thought of as overturning people's civil rights like Obergefell or Loving."

Gee, why would they think that, complainant? Maybe because Thomas has already hinted that they should? That conservatives were howling about those decisions when they were announced? Because conservatives seem determined to drag us backwards?

Really, this sort of private speech should be left for the middle of a high school football field. Any would-be lawyer should know that!

Next up he's going to whine that no one includes him in group chats any more for some nefarious reason.

Methinks that whoever initiated this particular course of administrative clusterfarkery is going to be much more distraught with what the students have to say about them, directly to their face, than they were with what they were saying about the SCotUS in private.

Things like "Go tie a belt around your neck and crank your hog, I say what I want, you gopper pile of shiat."

Another student filed a harassment complaint against the chat group, arguing that their comments amounted to discrimination against him for his religious and antiabortion beliefs.

And there it is. They accidentally admitted a farking moron to their law school.

Yeah - it's almost as if many major conservative voices have celebrated that precise potential in the last week, and those who blindly support them are held responsible for supporting people who are willing to accept and promote crimes against humanity, and thus are themselves aptly treated as people who are willing to accept and promote crimes against humanity.

... nah. Too fact-based.

You're classmates thinking that you're a goon and a goof doesn't add up to "discrimination".

You'd think a law student would understand that his classmates have 1A freedom, just like him.

Guess it wasn't *that* private of a group chat.

I see the next generation of conservative, gaslighting legal talent is being prepped and ready to go.

I assume they'll make some sort of BS argument about how the group chat was essential to their academic success and the alleged discrimination by their classmates puts them at a disadvantage grades-wise, thus impacting their internship opportunities and career prospects.

This rockstar has a bright future as a counsel for a megachurch or as a legal analyst at some far-right christofascist think tank in DC.

"Hinted"? No, he flat out said SCOTUS should overturn those rulings.

// and why shouldn't they - they just knocked the legal underpinnings of those decisions out, so they can't stand  on their own anymore
// so, good news for everyone hates that their neighbors 69 on the weekends, I guess

Eh, whatevs. This is from FIRE -- the Kochtopus/Scaife conservative group that's started polishing itself as a "nonpartisan" alternative to the ACLU.

This is some "see we help people against conservatives too" cosplay they're doing.

You find it insulting that conservatives would be thought of as doing the thing that CLARENCE THOMAS LITERALLY CALLED FOR IN HIS CONCURRENCE!

He's disingenuously weaponizing the universities anti-discrimation policies - this is many conservatives wet dream - to somehow turn the tables and become the victim - but without the actual discriminatory impacts of real victims of discrimination -- like the women in the thread.

Makin' it allllll about him -- in this situation  -- possibly impacting future careers in the process -- is really scummy.

I hope Student 4's name comes out in court. That will help prevent them from being accidentally employed by a firm that might disagree with their values.

/I liked what the other students had to say. I'd buy them beer.

Being in law school doesn't mean you are intelligent. Lin Wood out front should have told you.

Seems like even a first year law student should be able to defend his stance better than "You said things I don't agree with and blamed people like me for doing and planning to do bad things that you noticed, so I'm gonna tell an adult!"

Nobody cares about your stupid religious feelings.  They are not some special class of feelings that we all have to dance around.

To be fair, this appears to be a group chat about the leaked draft opinion.  Thomas' concurrence hadn't been released yet.  So this seems to be more of a "comment that didn't age well" thing.
