Protest Sign re: Replacing Ruth Ginsberg What should it say?
October 15, 2020 8:35 PM   Subscribe

There's a Women's March Saturday, originally conceived as a protest against filling RBG's seat during the election, when Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland wasn't even given a hearing, despite being way earlier in the election. I'd like to express my outrage at the hypocrisy, partisanship, cheating and foulness of Mitch McConnell, but a paragraph of rage is not a great protest sign. What should my sign say?

How about unconstitutional seizure of power. Here's my wall-of-text of reasoning on that, though note that the subsequent stuff about the judicial filibuster turned out to be incorrect.

How about a quote?

"The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president." --Mitch McConnell

I saw this quote on the Web somewhere: "If Amy Coney Barrett were a devout Muslim, conservatives would be up in arms against her inability to separate her faith from the law. Change my mind!"

Note that this is calling the Republicans out on their hypocrisy, not suggesting anything about one faith vs. the other. Also I realize you might find this too long or too controversial for a protest sign.

I had access to a laser printer, and the rasterbator, so I used an image of Barrett, headlined The Face of Injustice
below, it said, Wrong Choice, Wrong Time, Wrong for the Supreme Court.

My car leaked, which was a 1st, it wet and fell apart, glued it, put it in the oven to dry, and it singed in a mildly hellish way. hah. reporter liked it, got interviewed.

Thanks for ideas.
