Supremacist Court of the United States

F*** You from Olivia Rodrigo (19) (feat. Lily Allen) (Glastonbury 2022)

On Friday, June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, a landmark ruling in 1973 that protected a woman’s freedom to choose to have an abortion, removing federal and state abortion laws that were in place at the time. The decision means that individual U.S. states are now able to ban access to abortions.

F*** You by Allen, which was originally written in 2009 about U.S. President George Bush, was politically charged and belted out in anger regarding the overturning of Roe v. Wade in the U.S.

“This is actually my first Glastonbury and I’m sharing this stage with Lily, this is the biggest dream come true ever,” she said. “But I’m also equally as heartbroken about what happened in America yesterday. I’m devastated and terrified. So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this.”

“I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that at the end of the day, they truly don’t give a s**t about freedom,” she said. The song is for the justices: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you! We hate you.”

John G. Roberts, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, the three other Justices on the panel, voted to uphold Roe v. Wade.

Sam Alito quoted a 17TH CENTURY judge who had 2 women hung for witchcraft, as his basis for overturning Roe. Same British judge who said husbands couldn’t be guilty of raping their wives.

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is the highest court in the federal judiciary of the United States. It has ultimate appellate jurisdiction over all U.S. federal court cases, as well as over state court cases that involve a point of federal law. Established by Article Three of the United States Constitution, the composition and procedures of the Supreme Court were initially established by the 1st Congress through the Judiciary Act of 1789. As later set by the Judiciary Act of 1869, the court consists of the chief justice of the United States and eight associate justices. Each justice has lifetime tenure, meaning they remain on the court until they die, retire, resign, or are removed from office.[4] When a vacancy occurs, the president, with the advice and consent of the Senate, appoints a new justice. Each justice has a single vote in deciding the cases argued before the court. When in majority, the chief justice decides who writes the opinion of the court; otherwise, the most senior justice in the majority assigns the task of writing the opinion.
Current justices. There are currently nine justices on the Supreme Court: Chief Justice John Roberts and eight associate justices. Among the current members of the court, Clarence Thomas is the longest-serving justice, with a tenure of 11,205 days (30 years, 247 days) as of June 27, 2022; the most recent justice to join the court is Amy Coney Barrett, whose tenure began on October 27, 2020. Additionally, Stephen Breyer has announced his intention to retire at the end of the 2021–2022 term; he will be succeeded by Ketanji Brown Jackson, whose appointment was confirmed by the Senate on April 7, 2022.

Just a few months ago I literally had to explain to Republican members of Congress how periods work.

Their complete and utter incompetence is now killing women and pregnant people across the US.

There remains no legitimate grounding or basis to force birth in the United States. https://t.co/KWay0Enguy
