What a shit show inside of a dumpster fire this last SCOTUS season was. Inside of a month they’ve stripped women’s rights down to they’re still allowed to vote for now, taken away any reason for Miranda rights, sped up our clock towards extinction (I’m not entirely against extinction) and made it near impossible for countless of the wrongfully convicted to see freedom. What Iean by this will be outlined below.
Roe V. Wade: This is definitely the worst as the scope and magnitude of consequences is still coming into focus. Not only has this removed women’s bodily autonomy, but they have codified rape culture. Sitting congressmen Phillip Gunn all but actually endorsed incest rape. It’s clear that the patriarchy still has a fetish to punish women for existence. Now along with to punishment of rapes that they will never see justice for, but they will also be forced to carry the traumatic leftovers to be born into an increasingly dystopian hellscape. I’ve proposed a sex strike but I wanna shout out an idea my home girl Killah Bee had. Charge a 1K deposit for any peens that wanna enter. If they leave any unwanted materials, the lady keeps the deposit. If not the peen gets its deposit returned. There are ways to fight. Furthermore, Roe V. Wade was based on our right to privacy which has been shaky since the unending PATRIOT ACT. So these babies can be born under surveillance. Like I told niece l, you’re never too young to have an assigned agent.
Miranda: SCOTUS ruled that you cannot hold an officer civilly liable for not issuing Miranda rights. The ability to sue was our last line of defense against this one way the police routinely fist fuck our rights. To fight this, don’t talk to cops. The only phrase you need is “lawyer”.
West Virginia v. EPA: Yes, Joe Manchin is on this level of Hell. As a coal barron he would’ve technically been part of the plaintiff. SCOTUS ruled in favor of practically eliminating the EPA’s ability to regulate emissions from power plants. Yes, it’s painful to watch the EPA lie for government agencies, but we still pay taxes for a government to exist and I’d rather it work for is than using our money to turn the country into a Theocratic apocalypse cult.
This one hurts me personally. The SCOTUS ruled that death row inmates can no longer pursue appeal on the basis of ineffective counsel. The state I now live in PA has a known history of putting Black political prisoners into bondage through the use of glaringly incompetent defense counsel and the case of Mumia Abu Jamal was a catalyst for my radicalizing journey. So it deeply hurts that people who spent their lives fighting for others are gonna die in the new American plantation where all rights are suspended. Soon I fear that the prison house of nations will become a coast to coast prison nation
